Several weeks it was (surprise) so so rainy in Portland. So we thought we'd try our luck and take a day trip to the coast. It was raining so much, we could barely see on our drive out. But we were rewarded when we arrived to bright blue skies .. and in true Oregon coast form, a cold and windy, but beautiful experience on the beach. Our day was filled with rogue waves, rich clam chowder, salt water taffy, the invigorating scent of the sea, and smiles.
A beautiful gray early Spring day at Leach Botanical Garden, Portland's "secret garden". Filled with over 2,000 species of soon-to-be flowering flora, rushing water, a Giant Sequoia, Ichabod Crane, and a dinosaur! Another great family date, perfect for the 2 year old and nursing mama.

Best donuts ever. Seriously. Uncomplicated. Friendly. Fun! A great place for a Family Date. My favorite was the Everything: Nutella, Honey and Sea Salt. We got one plate and then another, two dozen in all, plus two cups of coffee. We were super productive the rest of the day! Thank you Tiffany and Nate. We will be back, again. And again.
