.mother lover.

it was just so fantastic to have my mom come visit me in portland. during the four days she was here, we packed in as much as possible. lots of hiking, walking and tasting occured, as well as memories, stories and life discussions were had. just amazing.

cheers to beers at amnesia!

out on the coast near cannon beach, yes, that's haystack rock in the background

ecola state park

this is where we had the unfortunate event of the westy breakdown. getting towed back to portland by a guy named ken was the adventure!

back in portland after a long day of shopping, we treated ourselves to 1/2 price martini's at bartini

the following day we rented a car and drove through the columbia river gorge, hiking multnomah falls... beautiful oregon :)

600 feet, 1.25 miles, and 11 switchbacks later, we made it to the top!

"look at those crazy trees!"

"i love it here"

climbing down to bridal veil falls

a visit to oregon wouldn't be complete without a brewery tour. full sail in hood river was just the place for a pint and a tour!

double mountain and laurelwood topped it off.

all in all, i can't wait for my parents to join me again out here! Next time, July, for berry picking and lots of awesome festivals and art faires!
