hi, i'm babbles, i'll be your tour guide

Brad's sister and her husband made their first trip out to visit Brad since he moved to Oregon and we had a busy, but great time.  We ate way too much food. Went on a ton of touristy outings, and tried a lot of good IPAs. On Saturday we visited Hood River and made stops along the way.  Our first stop was Vista House at Crown Point.

It was gorgeous! Plus, it helped we had perfect weather.  Perfect weather + amazeballz views + the Columbia River = fantastic. 





They don't have quite the same views out in Kentuckiana (aka Kentucky and Southern Indiana where they are from.) 


This building was built in the early 1900s, pretty legit! 

Next on the list was lunch at Full Sail Brewery, plus a tour.  Here we have Meredith doing her best Brooke Thumbs-up. 

After lunch we headed to another view point out in Hood River called Panorama Point to checkout the gorgeous view of Mount Hood, plus all the orchards. 

The name was very fitting. The views were impressive and well, panoramic. 

Meredith and Amos also have friends that moved out to Portland 10 years ago, so they were excited to get to visit with them as well. 

Our last stop of the day before heading back to Portland was at Multnomah Falls.

Which, if you're keeping track, is the tallest waterfall in Oregon. 

Brother / Sister love! 


After the falls we headed back into Portland for get this: MORE FOOD! Weird right?! Didn't take any pictures, but if you want great soft warm pretzels and yummy beer, hit up Hopworks

Moral of this story, if you ever come to Portland, I will be your tour guide. I will take you to beautiful places, fill you up with lots of yummy food, and get your to try legit IPAs. Sound like a plan?! Ok! Great! 


Cheers!
