Winter Wonderland (Bend Trip 2014)

We recently went on an amazing little winter getaway to Bend, OR. 
This was out first "winter" vacation ever. We usually go away in the summer to the beach for sand, swimming and hot sun. I never thought that a winter vacation would be just as fun, and maybe even more.  Bend (Mt Bachelor) is about a 4 hour drive for us, and I will admit that the drive was hard with a 10 month old baby and a 4 year old who get motion sickness. But we somehow managed and had a wonderful time and created beautiful memories.

We stayed in a large cabin with friends and family.
We went sledding, skiing, ice skating, played board games, watched movies with the fire place crackling, and unlimited bowls of popcorn. We watched the snow fall, made gingerbread houses, shared lots of laughs and cooked amazing meals. It was truly a winter wonderland. 

Here is a glimpse into our 5 day getaway. 

Thank you for visiting and letting me share our memories with you,
