  • The Pittock Mansion
  • The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI)
  • Voodoo Doughnut
  • The International Rose Test Garden
  • The Portland Art Museum and The Portland Japanese Garden.

Powell’s City of Books

I’m super excited for Powell’s City of Books because… well I’m crazy ’bout books! It’s gonna be like this the whole time we’re a the city of books:

ME: Can I PLEASE get a book! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!

MOM: We’ll see,Emma. Begging makes me want to by it less.

ME: Okayyyyy.

The Gardens

There are three different gardens in Portland. I’m excited to see them because I’m in the gardening club in my school. I think gardens are really pretty. I think these ones in particular are going to catch my eye.

I’m sure we won’t get to all of these this trip, but I hope to do them eventually.

Have you been to Portland or do you live there? What am I missing?

  1. Emma, I’m so proud of you for your blog. And there is a Vancouver Zoo. It is in Aldergrove and it’s pretty fun. I love you!!

  2. I don’t think I’ve ever been in a mansion, either. I would love to check one out and see if there was anything I’d change if it were my house! Sometimes I think it would be REALLY cool to own one and have my own pool, beautiful chandeliers, shiny floors, an enormous bed with 25 pillows, and a ginormous bubble gum machine that’s about 6 feet tall!
