Last day with the family

A fun-filled last day with the family.  I'm very sad to see them leave.  But, hopefully they will enjoy cooler weather at the Oregon Coast and enjoy some local wineries. 

We spent most of the day at the Oregon High Desert Classic.  So cool!  Nice viewing area under tents.  The grounds were spectacular - green grass, no dust, vendors, stables with fans.  Impressive!  We did see one rider fall at a jump.  Scary!  And a few horses refused a jump.

We waited until the hottest day to float the Deschutes River.  Even though it was quite warm, and we acclimated to the water temp, we still shivered just a little bit.  Saw a river otter, girls in bikinis (Tom!!), folks on every imaginable floatie, and beautiful houses.  Thanks to Emil for the drop off and pick up!

Uncle Ron and Dad.  Almost twins!

It's not that chilly.

Nice float tube.  Where's your rod and reel?

Holding on to each other's floaties.

Emil waited on the bridge for us.

Now, it's time to de-cat the house before Lori flies in tonight.  She's allergic to cats.  Guess we'll have to spend all our time at Ukulele University, the breweries, and floating the river during her visit. 

What a rough life.
