Our Anniversary Weekend

Last weekend we enjoyed celebrating the one year anniversary of our Commitment Ceremony. Saturday night we went to Zydeco for dinner, which is one of our favorite restaurants in downtown Bend. After a wonder meal there we went home for some cake.

Our cake at the ceremony had three tiers with two different flavors. Since we only ever got to taste one of the flavors last year, Kelly ordered a small cake from the Cake Lady so we could see what we missed. Here's the photos of our white chocolate cake with Bavarian creme in the middle and chocolate frosting on the outside. It was wonderful!!!
Sunday morning we went for a drive along the McKenzie Highway (route 242), which runs from Sisters to Belknap Springs. It was a beautiful day for a drive and we went with our friend Stef, who mostly rode in the car with us and Tom & Paul, who rode their motorcycles.
Here are a few shots of Mount Washington from the highway. Notice all the lava in the foreground of the photos.
Here's a shot of North Sister and Middle Sister from the McKenzie Highway.
We stopped along the way and did a hike at the Dee Wright Observatory (which is made entirely from volcanic rock. Here's the trail that winds through the lava.
Here's Paul & Stef on the trail.
Here's a shot of Dave on the trail.
Further on down the road we stopped at Proxy Falls. This 200' waterfall is an easy hike from the highway and well worth the walk.
Here are a few more photos of Proxy Falls and Proxy Creek.
