Mike and I decided to try and do a getaway after reffing season ended. Well, busy lives involving work schedules, church board conferences and social engagements ended up pushing back the date from early March to late April. I guess that's another reason to take a weekend to reboot, relax, and relish in the fact that we have great parents that live near by and will watch our children for us. Life is pretty good and so is a little R and R.

and full bag in tow that she says she can carry by herself, which is
how she wants to do everything these days.

Here's a crazy guy who jumps off cliffs. That water looks cold!
|Our second hike to Proxy Falls.|
There was still snow on the trail and the Hwy was still closed from the Sisters side. But the trailhead is near to Belknap Springs so we gave it a go. I's say it was worth it. I just love waterfalls.
We enjoyed our weekend getaway and felt very renewed and refreshed after soaking in the hot spring pools, hiking (without kiddos in tow), sipping on morning coffee while listening to the sounds of the swift McKenzie River. Below are some pics we took on our morning tour of the gardens. The tulips, rhodies, and daffodils were all in bloom.
