On the third weekend in January we took our new puppy, Link, to Bend for a mini weekend getaway. We spent one night at Hans' aunt and uncle's home and then checked into an amazing corner king suite at Tetherow Resort just outside the city. The room was complete with a balcony with a view of the golf course, a gas fireplace, and a large bathroom with a walk-in shower. We had an amazing dining experience first with breakfast on Saturday morning at one of our favorite restaurants in Bend, McKay's Cottage, and later that evening with a delicious dinner at The Row, the restaurant at the resort. We had several outings, first taking Link on a nice long walk on the river path in the morning, and later taking him up to Mt Bachelor to snowshoe on the lower trails at the base of the mountain. He loved the snow and we will definitely be taking him on more winter snow adventures in the near future! We capped off the evening with a game of Agricola: Creatures Big and Small in our hotel room as we watched the sunset over the golf course. It was a wonderful and relaxing weekend and we can't wait to go back to the resort for more pampering!
