Ready for our spring break trip to Sunriver!
After a four hour drive (including vomit all over the carseat on the way over the mountain pass) we made it!
First thing was to test out all of our fun gear with a bike ride to the park
The next day we went to Mount Bachelor for snowboarding, sledding, and in Mia’s case, lots of snacking (see previous post)
After the inevitable exhaustion following a trip to the mountain with three kids, the following day we decided to keep it low key with some time at the swim center
We rode bikes everyday, rain or shine
We also explored the nature center
Luca was pleased to see a real red-tailed hawk, his school’s mascot
There is also a small observatory, and we were quite impressed with their set up and knowledgable staff. Chris and Luca went back the following evening for some night-time star and planet gazing. They could see Jupiter and its moons!
Although it was still pretty cold most of the time, it was actually quite comfortable in the afternoon sun. Mia tried out a bit of a nap on the deck.
Later in the week Grammie and Pop Pop joined us for a couple of days. After their long drive we decided to get the legs moving with a walk to the park.Autumn conquered the firefighter pole all by herself for the first time!
Then it was off to the local brewery for a yummy (and silly) dinner
The next morning started off with everyone’s favorite breakfast – Grammie and Pop Pop’s blueberry wafflesFollowed by a nice long bike ride along the Deschutes River
Two little munchkins snuggled quite cozily in the Burley trailer
The grandparents offered to watch the kids while mom and dad went on a date in Bend – woo hoo!
The next day we went on a hike along the Deschutes River to Benham Falls
And among all of the many fun things we did during our vacation, we also found plenty of time for silly snuggles and selfies
and the hot tub!
