I am so excited right now that I think someone else's A.D.D. has set into my body. Some of you know that I am originally from Oregon, was born and raised there. I left when I was 18 and have gone back for visits on occasion and a family emergency that had me there for three years. My family is all over the place and the circumstances for my last couple of visits were not for pleasure. Its been a year and a half since I was last home. I set my trip up this morning, cheap flight + cheap car rental= happy me!!!
As I have grown older I have a new respect for my home state. I miss the rain, the green trees, camping, swimming in the lakes, the embrace of the mountains and my family/friends. Each time I go home I am the one always running around trying to see people. It is so hard and this time I am going to try and have it not be that way. I plan on spending a couple nights with my nieces and nephew. I am thinking of taking them to Multnomah falls or Astoria. I plan on seeing my twin nephews while home and not sure what my options are there. The majority of my cousins are in and around my home town, as well as my grandfather and a couple uncles. See where this is going?
While I am there I would like to as I mentioned above visit Multnomah Falls, visit the Coast, take a drive up to the mountains where I use to camp, check on the Carousel that is being built in my hometown. I cannot forget Voo-DooDonuts! They are out of this world and they have my favorite maple bar with bacon as the special topping. I already feel rushed...Grrr! I got the best fair for only seven days. I wanted to go for 9 and it was not happening. Most importantly I get to see my family.
