High Hopes

Before I came on this vacation I had high hopes to get a million things done! Nothing major, but I knew we didn’t have a lot of plans while we were here and we even had entire days with no plans. I thought I’d read a ton, write a bunch of blog posts, hike most days, and basically figure out the meaning of life.

What did I end up doing? A bunch of nothing. Well, that’s not exactly true. George and I did go on one hike:

Yesterday, we drove to LA to see my dad, his partner, Jon, and Jon’s son, Carlos. It was our only chance to see everyone so it was definitely worth the drive. They made reservations for lunch and we drove together once we got there. A couple of years ago, we all rode together with George, Carlos and me sharing the backseat. We took this picture:

And I thought we should take another one yesterday. Jon was sitting in the passenger seat so I gave him my phone. It was a bit of a fiasco and he accidentally took some candid photos of us. This one is my favorite:

Jon’s thumb is in the picture, Carlos looks thrilled to be squashed by George’s giant arm, and I look waaaay too happy about all of it. Here’s the best posed one.

Much better. And then after having lunch, we took a group picture:

We were standing in order of height and we all had our bodies in weird positions. We need to get out sh*t together next time, you guys.

Anyway, all we did while we were here was drive to LA twice and hike once. Otherwise, we just hung out, watched tv, and vegged out. It’s been pretty nice and we head back to Portland tomorrow morning. I’m already planning my next trip back.
