Y3W: We Meet Portland

Last week we took a family vacation to Portland, Oregon for a family wedding.  I was pleasantly surprised with this city and would love to visit again when we have more time to really explore.  

Our trip started out with Jude flying the plane!  HA!  Well, he was the co-pilot for a minute.  He loved it.  And what a special treat for him!!  Well done Southwest!!  

Once we picked up Jeremy's parents we decided to take on the OMSI - Oregon Museum of Science and Industry.  Jeremy's family raved about this museum so we knew we had to go.  I am so glad we did, it was such a great museum and it was great for both Jude and Teagan!  

Checking out the submarine on the river.  When you visit OMSI you can actually go into this submarine.  The boys did that while the girls went and played in the children's museum of the OMSI. 

Jeremy said that the submarine tour was very interesting but maybe a little over Jude's head but he sure had fun driving the submarine. 

Just hanging out in the submarine.  

Teagan had a great time playing in the water feature.  She was pouring and filling and spilling all over!  Such a great children's playground for her age.  If we lived there I know we would be visiting a lot more!

REACH!!  She loved this tornado water!

Jude found a human body exhibit and taught Grandma all about the human body and skeleton!  Our little scientist!  

Our beauty!  

This girl has a special place in her heart for her Grandpa's.  She is a Grandpa's girl!  

These 2!  So cute!  :)

Enjoying the river with Grandma and Grandpa.  Such a fun weekend with them.  It went so fast but it was a lot of fun.  

Family picture on the dock. 

So many pictures!  Sorry for the photo overload!  

Oh the wedding.  Beautiful!!  Jeremy's cousin Katie and her husband were breath-taking.  The wedding took place "under a bridge" just like the save the date said!  It wasn't JUST a bridge though, this park was amazing!  Cathedral Park in St. James Oregon is a must see if you are visiting.  Just a tip!  ;)

Our selfie wedding date picture!  Such a beautiful and fun day!

These two might be crazy and wild but they melt my heart.  So precious!  

Like I said, CRAZY!  I was trying to get a fun picture of Teagan and me and this is what I got!  A silly face with a finger in her nose!  LOL!  That's my girl!!!

That is the bridge!  Perfection!  And my silly little photo bomber!  

Dancing the night away with Daddy!  So cute!!

This is just a snapshot of what Portland looks like.  Sure Colorado has the mountains and streams but Portland took my breath away with the giant rivers and amazing bridges!  I cannot wait to go back!

Have you visited Portland?  
What was your favorite memory?
