Mother's Day Weekend; Portland Riverfront

We started out our Mother's Day Weekend with a drive through the beautiful Oregon countryside to meet my family for breakfast with my mom. I snapped this picture out the window on our drive. I was trying to capture the rolling hills covered in trees in the distance, but you can barely see them! It was a beautiful day!
 Obviously we don't look anything alike... ;)
 Later, we drove on up the freeway to meet up with my mother-in-law for happy hour at a cute little wine bar on the Portland Riverfront called "Thirst".
 A trip "up north" calls for an outfit change and some bright lipstick :)
 We sat outside and this was the view from our seat!
 I have to say, the guy that seated us was overly uptight and border-line rude to us, but our waiter was great!
 If you look in the distance you can just make out Mt. Hood.
 I just had the happy hour white wine, nothing special, but I'm easy to please, I liked it!
 We ordered a bunch of happy hour appetizers. They were so delicious! We got prosciutto wrapped figs stuffed with Gorgonzola, a baked brie, and artichoke Gorgonzola bacon dip with bread.
 We had such a nice relaxing time visiting in the beautiful weather!
 After we finished at Thirst, we got some Umpqua ice cream and walked a ways down the river front. I got salted caramel peanut ice cream, and Joel got his favorite mint chocolate chip.
 Down on the waterfront.
 We love our moms! They have been our biggest supports! I hope someday I will be as great a mom as they have been to us :) 

I hope you had a delightful weekend!
