Tourist season is here!

Summer has officially arrived and traveling season has begun. This year, let your kid be your tour guide! Wearing the Egg + Avocado Camera tee with the City Walks for Kids cards in hand, your little tourist will turn your vacation into an adventure you will never forget. If you’re traveling to NYC, San Francisco, Washington, D.C. or London, the City Walk cards will have you seeing the sites that are fun for you and the kids. (The Walk There book is great if you’re sticking close to Portland!)

Photos from Sunday Parkways, 6/21/09.

Can you tell that we’re crazy about biking? We wanted to share some photos from the awesome Sunday Parkways event that happened in North Portland last Sunday. They blocked off 7 miles of roadway so that only bikes and pedestrians were allowed all afternoon. No cars! It was sunny and glorious, and you can tell, we had a great time!

Fun times with Amy Ruppel!

We had a fabulous and fun art opening with Amy Ruppel! Amy’s show at Black Wagon is a full house of work: from affordable $10 prints (perfect for new baby nurseries and kids rooms) to her one-of-a-kind Kokeshi dolls and Kokeshi doll illustrations!

Thank you to everyone who came out to see Amy and support her opening! Thanks to Alli for coordinating and to DJ BSMNT JAMZ (Emily Baker) for the killer tunes! We posted some photos from the event on Flickr:

There’s still time to come out and see the show, so come on down!

Black Wagon loves Cycling!

We’re still wheeling from this past Saturday’s awesome bike festival on our very own Mississippi Ave! Cirque du Cycling was loads of fun — the family ride, the bike parade and thrilling cycling races. Mississippi Ave is THE BEST Street for kids and families in Portland!

We’ve posted some photos we took at the Cirque du Cycling event on Flickr:
