Day 20 Festivities:
Oregon Air Show Float the river
We bought a Groupon for the Oregon Air Show a few weeks ago. It was a steal of a deal - four tickets for nine-dollars each! (General admission at the gate is 25-dollars each. What?!) As it turns out, we didn't read the details of the Groupon until today when we discovered the voucher was good for Sunday only. Argh! So we thought we'd show-up today anyway and see if they'd offer us a little sympathy and let us attend anyway. NOPE! We were turned away, forced to "enjoy" the show on the other side of the fence. I was so disappointed I thought I might cry. Wyatt, was not so disappointed and actually quite relieved that we wouldn't be baking in the hot sun watching airplanes. (If my brothers Schuyler and Harold were with me, they too would've shed a tear.)
Luckily we had made arrangements with our buds Phoebe and David to float the river! And what a day it was to float the river - it was 99d! Happy day! Phoebe told me it was her birthday present to me. I think it was one of the best birthday presents I've ever received! Which, I need to give some props here, Phoebe is the whole reason my Thirty Days of 30 are going down. It was her idea and something she did for herself when she crossed the decade line.
The day was perfect for the float. The water, which is typically ice cold, felt refreshing in the hot sun. And the company was great! So, so fun!
Something about me: My favorite animal is the panda bear. I have hundreds of panda bear stuffed animals and a panda bear blanket that appears at bed time every night. Wyatt named him Pias Panda since he always seems to be praying. I also really like baby sea otters.
