A Hive away from Home

We’re just back from a wonderful family trip to Portland and Seattle–by sleeper train. It was hard being away from the 60,000, but I consoled myself with glimpses of country hives along the railway. A too-brief visit to the Pacific Science Center yielded additional nostalgia opportunities:

(True dedication–doesn’t she get hot in there?)

And, then, while the boys rushed to assemble a 3-D Tyrannosaurus Rex puzzle–I put this together. Good times.

    I hope you enjoyed your jaunt through our neck of the woods. Did you wave when you went past Olympia? 🙂

    We had such a wonderful time! Powell’s bookstore, Voodoo Donuts, bike rides, great barbecue, visits with friends in Portland and on Bainbridge… I am, however, holding you responsible for my visit to the Olde Curiosity Shoppe–where I saw the absolute grossest “mummies” and other dried things. I was “inspired” to visit by one of your posts. Ew.

    Portland is such a dreamy city. I get burned out on Seattle because it’s closer, but Portland retains its charm. I love Voodoo Donuts! They used to have a pepto bismal donut but the FDA made them stop selling it. ha! I am a giant booknerd but somehow I have never gone to Powells. I have heard about its mythology, though.

    Did you get your fortune read by the fortune teller at Ye Olde Curiosity Shoppe? She looks something like this? I carry my fortune from her in my wallet. I’m glad you went, even if it grossed you out. Think of how much character you cultivated by seeing a shrunken head. Your kids are all much wiser and more worldly. Keep it weird!
