We went to Sunriver last weekend. My boss owns a house there and let's some of us stay there for a few weekends a year. It was so much fun! We went with Zach and Jackie our friends here. As we were driving up there, the weather was acting crazy, it was nice and windy down to Salem, and then after we got past Detroit Lake the snow just hit hard, it was nice and white everywhere and we couldn't see anything. We chained up and just drove slow, I kept thinking, we do need adventures right? :D We made it to town safe and sound. The next morning we got up and the kids immediately got their snow gear on and went outside for over an hour on the mini snowbank in front of the house. We then drove to the mall and played on the big snow banks in the parking lot...

Jackie and Kayden :D

After that we had a great lunch of Hawaiian BBQ. We drove over to Maverick's, a sports center. They have an indoor wave machine called The Flow Rider. Mark has wanted to try one of these for a very long time and this was all he could think about LOL! He and Zach got brave and tried it, Jackie and I swam with the kids and watched the hilarity of the Flow Rider.

I hope you can laugh like we did, I laugh because they fell on padding and water... though the guys both complained of stiff necks the next day. If you pay to hurt yourself I can laugh!

We went back home the next day, and the roads were much friendlier to us, thank goodness, driving down the mountain in a whiteout would have been bad. Thanks Zack and Jackie for going with us :D
