We got up and headed down to the Breakfast Buffet to eat. Then went out to take some daytime pictures of the river. It is so scenic where we are at. I love the sound of the river and the smell of the pine trees!!
We checked out of the hotel and headed to Terrebone and the DD Ranch where we were going to see Santa. This area is so pretty. I love the snow up on the mountains.
We made it to the DD Ranch.
We went in and were so excited for Garrett to see Santa. Now remember, our boy usually loves people and will go to anyone so we thought it would be the same way with Santa. Well....not so much. Our boy had a breakdown and did not want anything to do with poor old Santa Claus.
Now in our boys defense, he did just wake up from a nap. So we decided to walk around the inside of the barn. It was set up so Christmas like. Was a very beautiful barn.
So we decided to try it again....
He was ok as long as he was with Mommy or Daddy so we decided to take some family pictures instead.
We then headed outside to the petting zoo. Garrett loved looking at all of the animals.
Having fun with daddy.
Heading back on the road to find somewhere to eat lunch.
We ate at Planker Sandwiches in Downtown Bend. It was so good!! Best Tomato Soup I've ever had. So far Bend is by far our favorite city in Oregon. On the way out of the cafe there was another Santa Claus so we decided to see if Garrett would do any better with this one. Yep, our little guy was back to his old self. Thank goodness, I was a little worried!!
Time to head home. Bend was awesome and we are hoping to be back again soon :)
We ate at a Mexican Restaurant on the way home and Garrett was watching Tim dip his chip so Garrett wanted to do the same. We got him his own little bowl of salsa to dip his chips in.
