But first I made my first trip by the slopes to get a couple hours on the new snow. It was hard to believe it was before thanksgiving and there were already powder days.
Thanksgiving at Kristina and Aaron's has almost become a tradition. This was the third in a row and just as much fun as all the others. Kyle and John were back and Kyle brought his girlfriend, Jericho. We kept wednesday tame, after being hungover last year. We started Thursday with mimosas and then made a run to the grocery store. Eve and I made a salad and sautaed brussels sprouts with carrots. Kyle made an enormous amount of mashed potatos and served them all. The turkey took a little longer then expected, but football was on so no one noticed.
Dinner was overwhelming and fantastic. After which, we rolled our way out and saw Catfish. We saw it at Living Room theaters, which had huge loveseat chairs like a millionares personal movie theater.
Friday we went out to the Clear Creek distillery and sampled a variety of distilled fruits. We quickly left to watch Oregon beat Arizona. Following that was the hard fought UNR/Boise State game. We watched the second half of the thrilling game.
Saturday, Eve and I did a little tour of Portland. We went to Powells and Eve found every dance book ever made, I picked up a traveloge of a trip through Chile. We stopped by the saturday market which was exciting and vibrant and went to voodoo doughnuts but the line was 100 yards long. We met up with Kristina, Aaron, Kyle and Jericho at the Portland City Grill with a great view of the city. It was a bit dreary and you couldn't see Hood, but it was relaxing all the same. That night we went out to The Alibi for all night kareoke, and I saw the best move ever. This guy got up and sang a song from the Little Mermaid and had every girl singing along with him. Best karaoke pickup line ever.
Sunday we did brunch, packed and did a quick drive around the city. As always it was a great time and I can't wait to do it again next year.
