Last weekend we traveled to Portland to attend the Mr's 10 year High School Reunion and see a bunch of his friends and family. The reunion was a lot of fun, but the stuff we did with the Mr's friends surrounding the reunion was even more fun.
On Friday we went wine tasting in Dundee Oregon. We tasted a lot of great Pinot Noirs and some other pretty good Pinot Gris and Blancs. It's definitely a Pinot region up there.
The landscape there is beautiful up there!
Here we are at Bella Vida.
One of our favorite places was Torii Mor Winery. Here we are at Torii Mor with some of the Mr's HS friends who came tasting with us.
Another vineyard that we loved was Winderlea. In fact, their Pinot Noir was our favorite. And they have a gorgeous view off the back deck of their tasting room.
We visited at total of 5 vineyards/wineries in Dundee. Bella Vida, Erath, Torii Mor, Lange, and Winderlea.
Our favorites by far were Torii Mor and Winderlea. The rest were good, but those were great!
Friday night 12 of us went out to dinner at the Mr's favorite Portland Restaurant, Ringside Steakhouse. So good and so fun to really get to see people and connect! In fact, it was such a great time that I forgot to take any pictures at dinner.
Saturday morning went on a hike with the Mr's Mom and Dad and we then met up with the Mr's brother and his fiance, Katie, for lunch. At lunch Katie asked me if I'd be in her wedding party! I was so touched and honored!
So after lunch Katie and I headed over to David's Bridal. Here we are, all smiles!
We tried on a ton of dresses. This is Katie's sister and me in a couple of our favorite chiffon ones.
Then the Mr. and I headed to The Nines hotel to get ready for the reunion.
We took a couple of pictures by the elevator and then my camera battery died. So I didn't get pictures at the reunion (sad!)
Dressed and ready for the reunion...
The reunion was at the Jupiter Hotel. The Mr. and I agreed that Facebook has made reunions a lot less climatic, but it was a lot of fun nevertheless.
Have any of you attend your 10 reunion? How was it?
