momma visit: portlandia

after leaving the coast...
next to the rush of the city...

happy hour with a view
from portland city grill
got us in the city mode

mom experienced last thursday on alberta
where she was pulled into dancing and drumming
of the krishnas
of course
she easily flowed to the beats
and got to see the array of randomness
she was able to buy a necklace from a vendor
as seen in pictures below...
it was a good taste of portlanders

we had a stop at blue plate
lunch counter and soda fountain
you may have seen it on
guy's diners, drive-ins and dives
on the food network
mom with a serious face
with her new hip glasses from the coast
great ambiance not quite captured
in the photo...
i tried!
we went to sauvie island
to pick berries
and visited st. john's bridge on the way
u-pick raspberries and blueberries.
we hit up saturday's market
and continued the hip-ness
mom got feathers in her hair
so fashionable.
she began to blend right in.
she met fenway, the dog
but with the hustle and bustle of the market
wasn't able to get a good psychic reading on her
she was enchanted by her pom-pom ears
and look-a-like to jabba the hut's dog
the line to voodoo downtown
was too long to wait
she did see a doughnut wedding though.
and we did go to the other location
to experience the goodness.
mango tango still remains my favorite
we snuck in the rose garden, hawthorne
and rushed her in good time
to the airport.

it was a delightful time
with a wonderful mom.
i'm grateful she was able to visit...
wish it could've been for longer.
love her!

So, why did you not expound upon the handsome guy in the picture with your mom? If I didn't know any better, I might think he was a ginga' ninja.
