Visiting B.J., Jenn and Jack in Portland, Oregon
Portland is called the City of Roses for a reason…it has the most beautiful roses in the world.
We visited the International Rose Test Garden even though we had been there before…it was beautiful.
Jack at the Rose Garden
The first Portland Rose Festival was held in 1907, and remains the city’s major annual festival more than a century later. In 1917, the International Rose Test Garden was established, and it now features more than 7,000 rose plants of 550 varieties. It is the oldest continuously operating public rose test garden in the United States.
Another place that has become one of our favorite stops in Portland is Salt and Straw Ice Cream Parlor…which was named one of the top five ice creams by Food Network.
We also enjoyed the restaurant La Provence French Restaurant in Beaverton, Oregon.
And of course we went to Little Gym with Jack
Jean’s gorgeous quiche
