Vacation Day #7

Friday was our last full day of vacation, so we decided to take my sister-in-law's advice and swing by Powell's Sweet Shoppe in Bend to be sure and start our day off right!!!  Thanks for the suggestion Pam!!!

A case full of chocolate sweets!!!

Sarah's first selection!!!

Vintage candies......

Gotta love the Abba Zaba!!!  I bought one for the kids to try!!!

We thought maybe this would silence her on the way home, but it wouldn't fit in her mouth!!!

We made another stop at Smith Rock State Park.  This time there were NO clouds and incoming thunderstorms!!  Absolutely beautiful!!!!  I'd love to go and hike here one day!!!

Same photo from a different angle.  I can't decide if I like the photo better with, or without the tree on the left.  If you have an opinion, leave a comment below!

Matt, Tori and Sarah trying to catch a lizard that was sunning on the rock.  No luck....they are speedy little reptiles....

Our GPS unit had the Rock O' the Range covered bridge as a site to see.  Well, here's the photo, of the newly refurbished bridge, that our bus won't fit under.  Our bus is 7' 9" (4 " too tall to cross the bridge), so we did a drive by shooting (photo shoot that is).

Our next stop was Tumalo Falls!  Absolutely one of my favorites!!!

Our family at Tumalo Falls (where is that bossy lady when we needed her???  Rock ledge was too low for the auto shoot to see the falls...If you don't know what I'm talking about, see our earlier post on vacation day #3)

We hiked to the top of Tumalo Falls and this is the view looking straight down.

The creek/stream further up above Tumalo Falls

Then it was back to Sunriver resort where we found 2 does and 4 fawns feeding on a condo lawn near Fort Rock Park.  Ryan and I were able to walk right up near them.

I think our local elementary school should get one of these!!!  

Tyler did a little gliding.....

Brandon and Ryan playing tether ball

Matt and Ryley playing tether ball (note here...there is something to be said for the advantage of height while playing this game)

Then it was back to the cabin where Matt and I had our last dinner on the adults only patio

We prepared for our last evening sugar high.....(aka death by dessert)

Matt spent some time reading in the most comfortable lounge chair....

Brandon did what he does best.....

Sarah took her last bubbly tub in the jacuzzi tub

.....and then it was off to bed!!!!!
