We stopped to pick up warm drinks at Moore Coffee on our way to Seattle Art Museum.

Next we walked down to the Seattle Aquarium and ate our mini donuts from Daily Dozen Donut Co (inside Pike Place Market) as our snack. How we waited that long to eat them I don't know!

The next day we were on the road to Portland. Before we left Seattle we stopped to get breakfast for the road at Top Pot Doughnut. Definitely my favorite donuts of the whole trip (with the mini donuts from Pike Place Market a close second).
We arrived in Portland around lunchtime. After we checked into our hotel we walked to get sandwiches at Bunk. BEST grilled cheese I have ever had! A rainy afternoon seems like the perfect time to do some shopping! We stopped at Powell's Books, Alder and Co, Frances May, Animal Traffic, Canoe, and Tender Loving Empire.

We had a quick snack at Brunch Box and then headed to Portland Art Museum. We basically had the museum to ourselves since it was pretty late.
We had dinner at Apizza Scholls. Can you tell I never get tired of eating pizza?! This pizza did not disappoint either!
I loved our hotel, the Paramount, in Portland. The location was perfect for us-walking distance to all of the places above (minus Apizza Scholls). The hotel restaurant was under construction (fine with us!) so we got a really great deal on a very nice room.
