Well, we're settled back in at home now, and wanted to send out some pictures of our time in Bend. When we got up Tuesday morning, the day that we left, it was snowing! Of course, it's always amazing for us to see snow, but at the end of April.......come on! Actually, it snowed off and on until after we reached Mt. Shasta in northern California. It was in the low 40's, so it didn't accumulate, and the roads were fine.
It was great to see my brother and his family. You'll see pictures of Mark, his wife Betsy, their daughter Emily and their son Zac, along with his girlfriend Chelsea. Their house sits on a large lot that borders an irrigation canal; there are great walking paths on either side, and I love the sound the running water makes. When the four of us get together, pinochle is our activity of choice, and this time was no different. They also play alot of poker, so Tom actually played in his first live game, and if only one other person was available we played cribbage. They have 2 dogs who went on a ride with us
one day to Mt. Batchelor, also pictured. Hope you enjoy the pictures! Until the next time, Tom & Nancy
