Last weekend we escaped the mundane “everyday is the same, every week blends into the next” with a quick getaway/extended Easter weekend in Portland with the Kam fam. And, lucky for me, Daniel was able to escape his crazy schedule and join me in Portland for the weekend too. The whole family, all together under one roof=total happiness for this girl.
As you may have figured out if you’ve been following my adventures for a while, Oregon has my heart, and is where my family lives so I visit frequently. And as a visitor these days I take advantage of the short time I have there and play tourist with my family as much as possible. (Check out my top recommendations for things to do in Portland.)
Living in Hawaii, I often complain that it’s hard to tell the seasons a part. With basically the same weather all year round you start to miss the changing of seasons. Having not visited Portland during the Spring in who knows how long, my family and I added a new experience to our list–the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm.
Not only does living in a place with one season make you appreciate the changing of seasons but also, flowers! Tulips! There are so many flowers I never realized you don’t see here in Hawaii that I miss. And, at the Wooden Shoe Tulips Festival we’re talking literally MILLIONS of tulips.
Talk about more flowers than you could ever imagine and a reason for an impromptu photo shoot with every color of tulip you could imagine. I seriously have more pictures of tulips on my phone and camera now than I really know what to do with.
