Through with Redmond, on to Bend. We had a lot of fun here. It reminded us a bit of a landlocked, hotter version of home. We were lucky enough to stay in this super cute mini-house (through airbnb.com) which was a short walk from the Deschutes River and downtown. 2 days of floating the river (a stress-free activity for everyone in the world except me), drinking local beer, reading graphic novels at the library, visiting the museum (forgot to put the SD card in my camera for that one, huge bummer), and trying to stay cool.
