So.... this is how our weekend started Saturday morning.....
All of our lovely Pantry goods
The ants invaded our pantry and we had to take everything out to fumigate. Technically it's still out now (Monday evening), but I think they're gone - we will be cleaning and putting everything back tonight. No fun!!!!!
We went on a nice drive down to Portland to go shopping since Oregon does not have any sales tax. It's just under a 3 hour drive, pending no traffic. I know we were there on a Sunday, but I was not too impressed with Portland downtown. Several shops and restaurants, including a bagel shop, were closed right at lunchtime. The city did not seem as fortunate as Seattle has been with the tech boom bringing in money to the city. I did see a few architecturally cool buildings and we did happen across Portland's Chinatown!
