28th Anniversary Get-Away!

The quads were so good to us to watch the kids for two days so we could take a one-night, two-day get-away.  We decided to go to a new place that we have never been to before.  The town is called Sisters, and is about a five hour drive from us into Oregon.  The town has a "western theme" to it.  
The surroundings reminded us a lot of Flagstaff, Arizona with being mostly Ponderosa Pine forest and there was lots of snow on the ground!  
 The Best Western that we stayed at had these llamas on their property.  
They had feed we could give them. 

 Self-timer selfie . . .
 We visited a nearby fish hatchery . . . 
 There was a wild otter in one of the fish ponds . . . . : -)

 We could feed the fish . . . 

 We had fun exploring the nearby camping areas,
keeping in mind bringing the kids back to camp this summer! 
 This is the Metolious River that runs through much of the area around there! 
It was all very pretty!

Thanks for the anniversary wishes! I think you get the MVF (most valuable friend) award for knowing both of us long before we married and staying such an awesome friend to us all these 28 years!!! You've been there through it all, and that is a very RARE and SPECIAL kind of friendship!!! Thank you soooooo much for this faithful friendship in all the good times and hard times! It means a lot to us!
