A visit to The Pittock Mansion!

With Christmas only 31 days away (but who's counting????) and a large list of places to visit, people to see and tasks to be done, we decided to take the family to Portland and tour The Pittock Mansion! You can find out information about the mansion at If you click on the photos below, they will enlarge and you can see more detail!

Our favorite room in the house was the "Library"! Each of the 23 rooms in the mansion were decorated in a "Fairy Tale" theme. The library's theme was Beauty and the Beast.
Entering the "Music Room". They had 3 people playing instruments. Aside from the flute and guitar, they were instruments we'd never seen before, and are not sure what they are (if you know, leave us a comment).

The formal dining room, decorated as Alice in Wonderland.
