Portland Saturday Market



Porter went on his first city buses and trains with us as we left town with the Pitts to head to the...



...near the waterfront.

There was a lot to look at!

Most of it slightly strange, but quite a bit of it was very beatiful...like some of the jewelry and artwork.

I felt a little like we'd stepped into a time machine and went back to the 60s and 70s!

Needless to say, we stuck out a bit.

We ran into something quite interesting, though.
Something the kids were especially happy to see.


Yep, water!




There were fountains near the river!
While Porter and Ezra started off timidly touching the water, Ryan started running all over the place.






Her bravery spread quickly...


*note: didn't want him wet at first, then gave up.*






It was so much fun watching them play!







We all know how Porter feels about water...







...Ezra doesn't have a mutual love for it.



In fact, I'm positive Porter was the cause of a lot of Ezra's splashing pains.





Definitely a water boy!



In the end, everyone was wet...



...and very happy!





Because we didn't bring a change of clothes, the kids looked very...interesting...on the way home.



We can just say we were helping to...



Thanks, Pitts!!
PS: if you see a common fuzzy theme, that's because I didn't know there was a smudge on the lens...but the pics are still cute!

Like I always say :)
You can't keep a Jensen out of the water.

That water looks like so much fun, suprised I don't see adults getting wet too :)

oh man...I'm gonna sound like a total wimp, but, that water was co-o-old! I'm sure when we hit the 100 degree stuff later this summer we'll all be there with our suits on. ;)
