Here are some more of our photo highlights from our vacation to Bend, Oregon (if you haven't read "Part One", see that post first:o)).
Ellie lost her 2nd bottom front tooth on this trip. At first she was worried that the Tooth Fairy wouldn't find her in Bend, but we assured her that we had let TF know, and so when she lost the tooth (at a restaurant) she was pretty excited! The TF came to visit that night and left her one dollar (which she decided she must spend immediately!)
We thought a trip to the library for some book time might be fun. As soon as we hit the children's corner, Pete plopped down on this huge stuffed bear. I found him this great book that I thought he and Ellie would both enjoy, being that it was all about him:o). And he and Ellie had some great cuddle and "chill" time.
Drake Park in downtown Bend is such a lovely park. And there's a nice stretch of walking path along the Deschutes River to walk along and enjoy the scenery.
There were lots of ducks (including this sweet little duckling) at the park.
And here's my "little duckling" :o) enjoying the park.
We also took a tour of the Deschutes Brewery where they brew and bottle all their beers, including Black Butte Porter and Mirror Pond Pale Ale. It was neat to see the behind-the-scenes way that beer is made. And Pete really enjoyed the free samples!!
On our last day in Bend, there was a great classic car show in Drake Park. Pete loves classic cars (he has a 1965 Mustang convertible in our garage. It's beautiful, but he just needs to find some time (HA! Easier said than done) to finish the brakes then it will be drivable again) and they had so many neat cars to look at. We all really liked this one, and asked Ellie to pose in front of it (it was a little cold that morning...thus she's wearing my "too big for her" sweater).
And tomorrow...I'm saving the BEST for last, I'll share photos from one of our favorite things we did on our trip. Can't wait to share a story with you...
