Friday June 5, we drove to Washington for the weekend for Uncle Frank Niessner's 90th birthday party. When we got to Mom & Dad Cheek's house we were greeted by Amber & Chase.
Uncle Frank's party was held on Saturday afternoon at the Stillwater Winery at Suncadia Resort.
Suncadia Resort is just off I-90 near Roslyn, WA. It's in a beautiful cascade mountains setting.

Sunday on the way back to Bend, we drove through Hood River to meet up with some friends we hadn't seen in several years. Here's Drew & Tula.
This was our first time meeting Tula, so Dave had to have his turn holding her.

Tula is hidden on Nichole's lap, so we had to go outside to get another group shot.

The route from Hood River to Bend is a beautiful drive that goes right by Mt. Hood.
