Weekend in Portland, OR

A few weeks ago my mom, two sisters, and I gathered in Portland to celebrate the impending arrival of the newest Winchell Sister baby. My sister Amanda and brother-in-law Mike are expecting their first baby in November and we are all SO excited! We had a great weekend sans-enfants. There was a lot of laughter, good conversation, relaxation, and of course fantastic food.

Here are a few pictures from the weekend. I'm afraid there aren't a whole lot because I wasn't really in the picture taking mood. Sometimes it's nice to just focus on being in the moment rather than recording the moment.

Googly Eyed Baby Belly
Heehee! I saw this on some photo blog (can't remember which one now), and Amanda humored me and let me try it out on her.

  1. Flood of memories have washed over me as I remember how awesome Portland is. Seriously, if I could live anywhere it would be Portland. Best Resturants, close to ocean, close to skiing. Can't get any better. How cute is the belly. Anyway, I went to college in Portland. Best 4 years of my life.

  2. Your sister is a gem for letting you do that to her!

  3. Wow! Those donuts sure to look delicious! What a fun getaway!
