2nd day of vacation

We get up and around and head back to Portland Oregon from Vancouver Washington.  First order of business is going to a food truck park!  Anyone who knows me knows I have a huge interest in food trucks.  I have dreamed of operating one in the past..  I found A South Carolina BBQ truck.  So I got me a huge BBQ sandwich and let me tell you it was amazing.  Although they don't believe in going heavy on the sauce.  Which was kind of a shock to me.  I also got a side of sweet potato salad which I didn't like as the color of it was a light pinkish color.  Uugh I need my potato salad to be yellow...
I ended up trying a bite of the funky colored potato salad and nope not what I like at all.  Insert a bit of bragging here I make a GREAT potato salad like my Grandma Pearl and mom made back in the day! 

After we all ate we then we went sightseeing.  Had to go into Flannigan Toy Store.  Sure was glad my little Logan wasn't with me.  He would have had a ball!  I bought several items in there and could have bought way more!  I just knew I couldn't go overboard because my luggage was already past full! 

Aunt Kathy and Me
Voodoo Doughnuts!
Have you been to Voodoo Doughnuts?  If you haven't you sure are missing a experience!  I really loved the d├ęcor as well as the yummy doughnuts.
Cute bike rack we saw on our sightseeing adventure.  How super cool is a big ole' wire whisk for a bike rack? 
Asian Market
So every time I would see my cousin post about going to her Asian Market I was like I so want to go there.  Yes we made it happen.  I spent quite a bit of money in here.  Wish I knew of one close to me.  Either at Oklahoma City or Dallas Texas.  I would make a trip every so often to go get some cool goodies. 
After a full day of sightseeing we headed back to the house.  Had a wonderful fun filled day in Portland Oregon.

West Coast Vacation

I flew into Portland Oregon July 21 2015.  I went with my Aunt Kathy to go see her daughter Melissa who lives in Vancouver Washington.

Southwest Airlines Rocks!!
Unfortunately while we was flying I started to feel very sick.. Are you serious?  All I could think of was here I am away from home and I have no clue what is wrong.  then I was thinking OH NO please don't let me be contagious.  I would have felt horrible if that was the case.  Needless to say I wasn't contagious. I think it was from the excitement of going to Washington and it was close to my time of the month.  Just a mix of things.
We fly into PDX Portland Oregon. Where Melissa and Crystal met us with open arms.  It had been over a year since Aunt Kathy had seen her daughter Melissa.  So you know they were both very excited for today to be here.
We made a few stops before we got to their apartment.  One was at a thrift store  which was really cool.  Then we ate at Shari's restaurant.  
I had the potato soup which was so very good!  I hear it is a very popular restaurant in Washington State.  I would definitely eat there again.  Too bad I wasn't feeling so good cause the pies looked awesome! 
Here's to the rocky start of my first day of vacation.
