My family has been in town for the last week. Since Nate is using up his summer vacation for our rapidly-approaching Grand Canyon trip, I got to be the Amish van driver/tour guide. We went to the coast–Cannon Beach and Haystack Rock, we hiked in the Gorge, and we hung out in Portland quite a bit.
You know how your family can just annoy you in more excruciating ways than anyone else in the world? Well, fortunately, this week with my family was an exception to the rule. They were model house guests–they cooked, cleaned, washed the dishes and played innumerable games of fetch with the dog. Of course having a perky redhead in the family helps keep everyone entertained too (not you, Nate! I’m talking about our niece).
