The second week we drove down to beautiful Bend, Oregon and met up with the rest of the Shafer clan. Here are the highlights:
We stayed at the Eagle Crest Resort. We enjoyed their pools, tennis courts, raquetball courts, bikes, and wildlife (this deer kept coming up to our back porch and begging for... lettuce?).
One of the biggest highlights was meeting our sweet baby niece, Pepper. She's Ben and Whitney's first girl, and it's so fun to have a girl cousin for Addy to smother with love. Pepper is a teensy, easy-going baby, and we couldn't get enough of her!
We loved having all the cousins together
We played a lot of Just Dance on the Wii
We played at the Deschutes River
We toured a cute little chocolate factory in Bend (with delicious free samples)
We saw (and loved) HP
We checked out the gorgeous Metolius River
We saw acres and acres of burned trees on our drive. Crazy.
It was such a beautiful place (minus the fire-ravaged areas). We had a great time!
