Memorial Day Weekend

The kids spent their long holiday weekend down with the Swanks in Salem.  We hear they had a great time, but these are the only photos we were sent Winking smile

Ben and I then drove on to La Pine, with a stop at the Detroit Lake Dam for a lovely walk break:

After another break for dinner in Sisters, we finally arrived at our private campground in La Pine.  My parents own this property and have set up a large camper onsite which has electricity and running water.

There’s also a great fire-pit and picnic area:

We spent the weekend relaxing: watching movies, reading, sitting by the fire, avoiding rainstorms, and going for long walks:

After one such walk, we returned to the property to find a herd of deer having lunch:

We did venture out for a real hike out to Flatiron Rock outside of Bend.
