The next day- (Portland Art Museum)
We saw them in Spokane... loved it.
Museum of Contemporary Craft
On a lark, we decided to bug out of town to our old 'hometown' - Portland, OR. You know- visit all the old haunts, a few old friends, pubs, bookshops, yarn shops and a few great museums...
However, as soon as we took the exit to our old village... the snow started falling and quickly became quite a storm. Most of the shops closed up tight and it took around 45 min to arrive at our 'close by' hotel!! We were trying to escape just this. Funny how life has other plans for you :) But, the next day, most of the snow had melted and we did partake in all our old faves and a few new ones too. Oh, and rang in a new year... all 4 of us together.
Now that we are home (ugh to the 6 hour drive with 2 small kids) our son is very sick with the stomach flu. We had a grand time, though and are (well, most of us) feeling refreshed. Here's to 2010... hope it's a much better year than the 'Annus Horribilis' 2009 turned out to be for our family. Happy new year to all!!
