Bend has almost everything you’d need, which is good considering central Oregon is pretty removed from the other major cities in the region. It’s quite sunny and picturesque with mountains along the horizon. It’s also considered high desert, at an elevation of over 3000 feet and its VERY dry. I just couldn’t stay hydrated. We would totally considering living here if they had a year round ice rink, but they don’t, so that’s a deal breaker for me :)
Divagirl had a blast playing with her cousins. She even got a little break from her lessons. Her brothers chose to continue their lessons so they could get game time afterwards. It’s nice having flexibility – we really enjoyed it here so much we extended our stay a few days.
We loved hanging out with Erick and Monica and their boys. We played some games, watched some movies, made some coffee! Naturally.
Monica was even able to bring the boys over to the RV Park one night for dinner and bike rides. Super fun!
