Saturday Market

If you’ve been to Portland any time since the mid 70’s, you’ve probably heard of the Portland Saturday Market.  It’s a huge, outdoor event.  You could call it a craft fair, but it’s really so much more than that, with various entertainment, an awesome selection of food and drinks, and tons of amazing locally crafted art and other goods for sale.  And it really is huge.  So fun!

Anyway, we took our Thanksgiving visitors there this past Saturday and had a great time.  See it here!

The kids’ favorite thing about the Market is its world-famous Elephant Ears.  (Sweet, fried, whole grain dough things with your choice of delicious toppings.)

I think everyone had a pretty good time.  I know I did.  It was really special having all our visitors here for Thanksgiving, and I think the whole weekend was a great success.  I hope it was worth the long drive for all of them, as they all came up from California by car.  We really appreciated that they made that trip to be with us over the holiday.  Such a special time.

Hope everyone else had a nice Thanksgiving and long weekend.

Love to all!
