So one of our favorite places to go is Sunriver, Oregon. It is a resort community that we find so relaxing. We have been several times prior to actually living in Oregon, and once during the winter for a conference that Mike had, but we had not gone in the summer(our fav time to go). So we decided last summer that we were going this summer. We were not disappointed!

Here are some of the highlights-

Going to the Lava Caves-It is really cool, and cold(about 45degrees inside). You rent lanterns to take in with you. Mike, Hailey, my brother Aaron, and my Dad went all the way in and touched the wall. They had to army crawl to get there but Hailey insisted that they go all the way so she could tell me that she did it! This is a picture at the opening of the cave before you go down.

The boys are blowing so they can see their breath. It was cold!!

The 4th of July pinata was a hit. Before it broke open it had no legs, it was quite funny!

Hot tubbing, always a hit! Swimming- This is Hailey coming out of one of the waterslides-good form!Fishing-My kids had been wanting to go fishing so I went to Walmart and bought a pole and some worms and off we went. We did not catch anything but it was a hit! Jackson was a natural although he did get the hook stuck in the back of his head once while trying to cast.
Little photo opWe needed more of this but there was just too much fun to be had so the kids got sleep where they could! This was after swimming and then we had the bike ride home. We will definitely not be waiting 4 years to go back!
