Daddy's Day!

What a great day with my amazing wife and two super-special girls! Old man weather held off on the yuck and treated us to a beautiful day out in Portland. We got it kicked off with a quick breakfast picnic on the SES playground. Why there? Have we mentioned the lack of good coffee in Taiwan? When Starbucks is considered tasty you're in trouble. Stumptown is located just on the corner of 34th and Belmont so we grabbed a couple of coffees and bagels (also an important food group missing from our Asian diet) and stretched out on the grass...

We then headed across the Willamette River to check out the Saturday Market. The Pride Parade was taking place so the riverfront was bustling with people.

We walked back to the car along the river. Here, Krista and Xian pose with the Hawthorne (my favorite) Bridge in the background

With energy running low, we headed back to the east-side to another favorite spot for lunch. Por Que No! Xian quickly passed out, but Sage loudly voiced the need to try a little avocado. Her reasoning was sound. The translation to the boss (Mom) ran along the lines that it was sister's first food so she should be able to have some. Her petition for chips to go along with the taster fell flat.

It was quite the day and we eventually made it back out to Great-Grammy's house in time for dinner and bed. It was so wonderful to spend a day roaming around Portland.
