Portland Trip 2019

I keep losing my closest friends to different cities, and when Brooke and her family moved to Portland, it continued the trend. As sad as I am to see her go, it does give me a good reason to go visit Portland, and it turns out Portland is pretty amazing. I made Brooke and our kids go on a public transit adventure with me, which lasted 7 hours and included 4 different types of transit as well as a trip to the zoo and a hike carrying sleeping 2 year olds. We walked and biked all over her new neighborhood. We ate amazing food. We read books, played ukulele, and generally laughed our heads off. And we had amazing weather, so we got to go visit the coast on a beautiful day (the kids didn’t want to leave). I hope Brooke hates it in Portland so she’ll come back here to Albuquerque, but in the meantime, we will go visit and enjoy this amazing city…
