Central Oregon


Last weekend we decided to head over to Central Oregon for a couple of days. We rented a beautiful two bedroom condo in Sunriver. Wow! We were really pleased with this find. All the comforts (and then some) of home!



On Saturday we visited the Nature Center at Sunriver. It was an absolutely gorgeous autumn day. Brilliant sunshine and a moderate 60 degrees! We couldn't have asked for a better weekend.



A stately bald eagle lives at the Nature Center in a flight cage. This means he can fly away when he desires, but is kept safe from other animals when he decides to be in his cage. We were the only visitors while we were there - so the eagle was extremely interested in us, but slightly afraid of us too. It took us a long while to snap some decent photos of him. Here are two of our favorites.

We had a perfect family weekend watching movies, enjoying the sunshine, doing a little shopping and making chocolate chip cookies. Oh! And Cindy discovered "Dancing with the Stars" for the Wii. John is now concerned that he may never again regain control of the Wii....

Yes Nolablossom... I go EVERYWHERE with my purse. A Princess just isn't a Princess without her handbag... afterall, where would I keep my tiara???

We did have a GREAT time! We're already planning another trip back for spring break - if not sooner.
