Hey mama - what are we doing here? They're lighting up the Christmas Tree in Pioneer Courthouse Square tonight and I WANNA GO
A quick ride into town - it got awfully dark awfully fast - and we're HERE!!! There is going to be music, performances, and then the tree lighting! Lots of people (makes me a little teensy bit nervous, but ultimately I did ok) and lots of dogs!
Party like a ROCKSTAR
Hey, what happened to my ears? Yup, I'm particularly fuzzy these days, mama mentioned that there will be some hair removal coming soon to which I say Nay, Not Necessary...
I've gotta protect my mama from any evildoers who get too close... I know she appreciates this...
Woo-hoo - the colors, the colors...
There were SO many people, they had projections on the buildings, and the tree was just about to be lit... and we just couldn't get a good photo of it. Too many people standing around, and traffic folks trying to keep us all moving.
So what is a dog to do? That's right, turn around and HEAD FOR FOOD
Time for a Gyro at the local food carts. Downtown Portland has some very cool areas where they have collections of food carts in parking lots - so you can get pretty much any kind of food you want in a nice takeout container, all right next to each other.
This was our first time at the falafel and gyro cart. The man who runs it even makes his own hot sauce (which was YUMMY). Mama had a hummus sandwich (which was good) and dad had a gyro (which was great)
After so much excitement, this is what the world looked like... I must be having a GOOD TIME...
Happy beginning of the holiday season everyone!
