Portland Bound

A few months back I saw a Southwest Ding headed to Portland for super cheap and couldn't resist buying a ticket for Colby and I to go visit Grandma and Grandpa. Spencer was the best for letting us go without him, (although all three of us really should have just waited to go for Thanksgiving break, but that didn't cross my mind until the morning we left) but we did miss him a lot!! Here's Spence and Colby around 5 am before we left for the airport. They were both still a little tired. :)

Colby did amazing on the way there. I planned an early flight to Portland hoping that he would sleep most of the way, and that he did! Here's the little cutie before we boarded. Don't mind all the pics... I just want every little face he makes for my sake and journal keeping. :)

One night Mom and Dad took Paul, Lindsay and I to John's Incredible Pizza which is a full pizza buffet/arcade - kind of like a Chuck-E-Cheese for grown ups, but way, way better. We ate some delicious food first, then headed into the arcade for some games. It was the middle of the week so it was a pretty slow night... we practically had the whole place to ourselves. Although it wasn't very busy, the place was huge! It had the capability to host the masses for sure. There were probably 5 or 6 very large rooms, all with different themes, for you to eat in. Of course Paul picked the sports room, which was actually pretty cool.

One of the rides was a virtual roller coaster... SO FUN! Dad and I were the first to try it out, then everyone else had to give it go because it looked like we had so much fun. :) The thing was completely decked out with moving seats and fans to simulate wind. Totally my kind of ride!

Paul won Ellie this little stuffed animal and she could not get enough of it that night! What a little cutie.

The last ride for us that night was the bumper cars. Paul, Mom, Dad and I all rode while Lindsay stayed out with the littles since she is pregnant and couldn't take on the bumper cars with us. It was a great way to end the night with a lot of laughter.
