So during my time of absence I traveled with a girlfriend to celebrate victory in the Wipeout Run (5k + inflatable obstacles). I feel like it shared many similarities to climbing up a flimsy inflatable slide ladder while hauling a Daisy under an arm. For that reason I found it easier than I was expecting, but it was still fun and challenging. I think I'm sold on obstacle runs.
We spent yesterday looking for Waldos. Some indie bookstore have "Where's Waldo?" searches in July. I have heard of 7 Oregon locations: Redmond/Sisters, Hood River, Seaside, Corvallis, McMinnville, Hillsboro, and The Dalles. There might be more. We found our Waldos in Corvallis yesterday. The kids love doing this and I like to browse while they look. We found 15 Waldos and 1 was discovered by Daisy. We were in a music shop and Daisy saw a drum so she was just saying "Boom Boom (repeat 50 times) Boom Boom Boom AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH" and started fighting me to run away. We had all walked right by a Waldo. Smart girl.
