"Out of the office"

{how we road trip}
We're officially on vacation and I'll be back next week. I had to share a quick story though because our trip over to Sunriver was not without incident. 

The incident being watching a car run a stop sign, swerve off the road, go through someone's fence, and INTO THE DECK OF A HOUSE.

If you just exclaimed, "oh my gosh!!!", then you said exactly the same thing I did, right before I called 911 and tried to direct emergency personnel to the scene when I had not a clue where in green acres we were, while Russell jumped out and assisted the driver.

It turned out to be an elderly diabetic woman with dangerously low blood sugar. Thankfully, not only did she appear unharmed, but she crashed in front of a car carrying multiple Caramello bars (ahem)Russ stayed by her side and helped her eat one while I waited in the road for the ambulance, and once they arrived and took over, I felt free to take photographic evidence.

From a respectful distance of course. 


{The path of destruction}
Pretty crazy, right?

I am so thankful we were at the right place at the right time, because even though the homeowners were inside their house, they didn't hear the crash, and no neighbors were outside to see it happen. And I'm sooo thankful that the driver wasn't badly injured because it could have been so, so much worse.

Of course, with such an eventful start to our trip, nothing's going to seem that exciting now! And that is juuuust fine with me.

Off to relax...
