me and him time!

What a treat.  On Saturday afternoon our lovely friends offered to have our kiddos for a few hours so the Huzz and I could go off and spend some time together. Three hours -  YES 3 WHOLE HOURS to ourselves!  Almost unheard of at a weekend.  I'm trying to improve my photography and so we headed to the Japanese Garden in Portland, cameras in hands to get a little practice in.

The gardens are absolutely stunning and proclaimed to be the most authentic Japanese gardens outside of Japan. The gardens are calm and peaceful, with an enviable location on the west hills over looking this great city.  Whatever time of year you visit it is beautiful.  However we were a little early to see the amazing colour changes to the leaves that happens in 2-3 weeks time.  So, we'll definitely be looking to head back there in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, here are some of the gorgeous lush green plants we saw on Saturday.








Just a few hours to ourselves was such a treat, and definitely something we should do more often.

Hope you had super weekend.  Here's to a super week too.
