We don’t get to take very many family trips together with the five of us. But taking the kids to one of my favorite places in our state was an absolute blast! This trip was broken up into two different parts. One spent in the hot central Oregon climate in Bend. We hiked Smith Rock and spent time at Eagle Crest Resort. We played all the sports there, including basketball and tennis. Lounging by the pool was my favorite. I think my kids’ favorite part was renting the bikes and riding all around the resort.
Then we came back to unload, do laundry, and repack to head a few hours in the opposite direction toward the coast. Which unfortunately was a drastic weather change! We went from 85 degree sunny summer weather to a cold 50 degree windy rainy mess at the coast. I would have preferred to stay in the desert in Bend but I also do love the beach. Our littlest, Addie, had a blast combing the beach for sand dollars in the morning hours before the tide came in. I can’t wait for more family trips! I love my crew!
Before this, the last trip we took was a short getaway to San Francisco my husband, Anthony, and I took right before the pandemic! We were overdue!
