Portland,OR is known as the city of roses. And on this weekend, the city was certainly abound with roses. Ok, so it wasn’t a typical weekend in Portland, we were able to soak in a rose parade, carnival and the famous Rose Garden… not in any particular order though. =p Of course, we bring our cameras wherever we go so here are some snapshots just in case you were curious what the city of Portland is all about.

A visit to the Rose Garden is a must if you love flowers. It is full of all sorts of varieties of roses that you’d never be able to remember.
My favorite rose pictured below…which I have no clue what the name of it is. =/ Anyways, I love how intricate and tightly bound the petals are (prob not the best words to even describe a rose. lol)
Waking up early in the morning allowed us to get front row seats to the annual Grand Floral Parade! This was Kay’s first parade in a very long time.. so she was thrilled. One of the benefits of a parade up in the “overcast everyday” northwest is that you aren’t stuck in the HOT sun all day long. ;p
Here are some photos we captured of the parade.
