I'm back! Matt and I just spent a week in Eastern Oregon with his family. Imagine the Griswolds and that will give you a pretty good idea of what my vacation was like with the in-laws. We drove separately, but they came in an Explorer with 5 adults and an adult dog that sat across their laps. I would die. One day we went rafting on the Deschutes river out of Maupin, Oregon. I am terrified of water but wanted to show everyone that I could do it. Well, I didn't realize how intense the rafting was going to be. At one point our guide had us practice paddling and then diving into the boat right before a rapid. I thought I was going to die, literally. Lets just say I dove into the boat before I was supposed to and was not always paddling when I was told to (because I was holding on with a death grip.) This particular rapid we dropped 6 feet. To give you an idea of the trip, here are a few photos.
I was definitely out of my element, so my in-laws decided maybe a little antiquing in Redmond, Oregon would cure me. Here are some of the fun things I saw, but didn't buy.
The one thing I really wanted was this metal deer on the right, it was a bank! But at $65, I would have nothing to put into it! The other smaller deers were metal too, I really need a metal deer.
The next day I snuck away to the thrift stores for some alone time. Who knew family vacations could be so over stimulating? I went to a total of 5 thrifts in Redmond and only bought a few things.
I'm happy to be home, but had a really fun vacation. Whenever I travel with my in laws I'm reminded of how wild mine and Sister's family is. We are just a bunch of party animals! But, its always nice to have a change of pace.
Here is to some good thrifting this week!
Until Next Time!
