Multnomah Falls and the Oregon Zoo

We went to Portland last weekend to visit Paul's sister.  His parents came, too (drove separately).  Her apartment complex has a suite that they rent out to friends/family of the residents.  I'd never heard of an apartment complex doing that but this one does.

We got there late Saturday afternoon and just hung out by the pool for awhile, then had dinner in the suite.  After dinner we walked to a park to let the girls play, then they had a sleepover with their aunt in her apartment while Paul and I and his parents (her parents, too, obviously) stayed in the suite.  On Sunday we all went to church with her and then barbequed some steaks at her apartment, then drove to Multnomah Falls and hiked to the top.

At the top, small falls before the big one

She had to work on Monday so we were all on our own.  The parents just went to Costco and then home, while we went to the Oregon Zoo and headed home after that, stopping at their place for dinner to wait out the rush hour traffic.  The zoo was really fun.  The weather was perfect and we actually saw a lot of animals.  Seems like when we go to the Woodland Park Zoo here in Seattle most of the animals are hiding.

I was really hoping to experience Voodoo Doughnuts while we were there, but no such luck.
