Bend - July 1-5, 2011

This Independence Day weekend we make the trek, via nights in Evanston, WY and Twin Falls, ID, to Bend, OR to visit for a couple days with Diana's parents, Ed and Pat. We got some squished pennies, played some games, ate some good good and drove by some of Diana's old haunts.

Lava Lanes in Bend (not going bowling . . . )
