Playing around at a rest area in Eastern Oregon.
Then we went to Ninkasi for lunch! What started off as some snacks and a nice diversion from the road turned into a private tour of the brewery with one of the owners, pints of pilsner directly from the fermenting tank, and free Ninkasi t-shirts. It turns out that in the tasting room full of people drinking, the owner correctly identified the biggest beer nerds.
Then we headed up to Portland, where we met our awesome friends for Zoo Lights and dinner at the Washington Park Zoo. It was another welcome diversion from the road.
Monday Nothing today.
We decorated sugar cookies at Uncle Jon's.
Then we decorated the tree.
We went to see Santa. Emma seems to be the only one pleased about this.
Then we went on the carousel at Westlake Center.
We also went to Pike Place Market for lunch.
Will and Emma walking through Post Alley.
