Here's the thing about Portland. Portland has good food. Portland is known for having especially good food trucks. So, we found a food truck my dad had seen on the travel channel and checked it out! The food truck in question was called Big A** Sandwiches.
Funny story... I've never said a swear word, so I made my mom order for me because I'm a naive and innocent person and my tongue could literally not form the word... I'm going to take this as a good thing about myself and ignore the snickers from the audience. I like my clean mouth, and I'm keeping it there. (side note... it was most likely the first time my mom had ever said "a**" outside the scriptural realm. We like being prudes.)
Also, we went to voodoo doughnuts, but the line was around the block... so stay tuned. We're heading back early in a couple days.
We're seriously staying in the nicest condo/townhome I've ever been in, and I'm not complaining one bit. Right on the beach, two floors... full size kitchen... man! Loving it.
Alex and I spent a full day at the beach on Sunday, just enjoying the beautiful weather. We got a teeny bit sunburned which was less than cool, but now we know for sure it's summer, right?? Alex claims he loves getting burned a little bit... but I'm calling his bluff after watching him layer on the aloe.
And can I just say how awesome it is to finally have time to sit down and read?? I've heard great things about this book and so far I'm not disappointed.
I love Oregon. Oregon is my soul state. I'm declaring that a thing because I can, and a thing it shall be.
p.s. Alex made my brother into a mermaid.
