The end of February Ryan went on a snowboarding trip with his brother and some friends to Tahoe so I headed to Oregon to visit Kat. It was such a fun weekend just hanging out and catching up. I loved Portland- the city was so different but had such a good vibe. I also got to see my Uncle Jeff and Aunt Mary while I was there, it worked out perfect that they were both in town that weekend!
Getting attacked by Ben
Hanging out at the coffee shop
In the coffee shop they had these old library drawers that people can write notes and leave them in there. It was fun reading through a few of them!
We headed up to Seattle on Sunday and spent the day there. The two hour drive up there was absolutely beautiful! We watched the sunrise through the mountains and fog. So worth getting up at like 4:30am!!
Conversation with Michelle (Kat's roommate) and Kat before we left for Seattle:
M: "Have you ever been to Seattle?"
W: "No this is my first time to Oregon"
M: "So have you ever been to Seattle?"
W: confused by the question "No, I've never been to Oregon"
K: "Whit, Seattle is in WASHINGTON!!"
The Troll Under The Bridge
(As seen in 10 Things I Hate About You)
It was so neat to go see this, its just a huge troll underneath a bridge crushing a VW Beetle! It even had a heart beat...
I definitely came home and watched "10 Things I Hate About You"
so I could see the part with the troll!!
The Space Needle
Back In Portland...
On my last night it Portland we went downtown so Kat could take me here. Its a famous little doughnut shop with CRAZY doughnuts!! Things such as the bacon maple bar (a maple bar with bacon on it) And lots of others, many of them being inappropriate!!
The before..Kat got the classic "Voodoo" and I went for the "Old Dirty Bastard"
