We got our seats and set up for the trip. Steven brought some books, a dinosaur, and some Lego's.
We arrived in Portland after a few hours where my wonderful friend Kim picked us up. After a side trip to her house to pick up another wonderful friend Zoe, we were off to Red Robin for lunch during which Steven passed out. But not before popping his balloon and scaring me half to death. He fell asleep sitting in his high chair, leaning against me and clutching his new balloon.
Then the four of us begin our trek around the zoo. Steven's favorite part appeared to be the giant fish tanks where we could push his stroller right up to the glass and see them swimming around.
A monkey but for Kim!!
And I can't have this zoo trip without some great group shots of the four of us at the zoo with a giant bunch of penguins. Oh and of course Kim riding a wooden horse!!!
Steven passed out after the zoo and slept all the way up till dinner time.Then we had a great night in Kim's totally awesome town house in the city! Think wine, chocolate chip cookies, and a great game of Apples to Apples with her boyfriend and a cute Peace Corps guy. The next day we went shopping and headed back to the train depot.
The return train was not as peaceful as the first. Steven did not want to sit down in his seat for very long, and the train was a lot more jumpy then the first one was. Luckily for us the arcade room was closed due to the token machine being broken so we hung out in there. Steven was able to run around and play hide and go seek under a cabinet. We had peace and quiet with no interruptions. Even though we had a great weekend it is always good to be home!!
