Our Hoyt Arboretum Adventure

I know we totally left you hanging when it came to day 4 of our road trip, and we promise we’ll share it soon. However, if we waited to share today’s adventure, chances are it would get lost in the ‘things-we-wish-we-would-have-blogged-about-but-now-it’s-been-too-long’ archive.

This morning, we woke up, made breakfast, then ventured out for a little exploration of our beautiful city. We are lucky enough to live in Northwest Portland, which is home to amazing shops and restaurants, but we’re also nestled right by the most amazing parts of the city. After hopping in the car and driving for 10 minutes, we arrived at the Hoyt Arboretum. It’s a beautiful park/preserve which is home to so many amazing native & transplanted trees/plants. We were able to feel the squishy bark of the redwoods, and man, the whole park smells like Christmas. After the park, we headed over to Skyline Restaurant and tore up some burgers, tots & shakes! Mmmm.

We took our cameras with us … because we vowed to be better at capturing these moments in our lives. Here are a few of our favorites from the day.



Can you see the teeny tiny mushroom J is pointing to? Look closely.
