I always wanted a close family, as did my husband. We worked hard on parenting over the years, creating relationship with our kids (and not just rules), and it has paid off. We feel very blessed to have great kids!

We’re also a family who loves the outdoors. Our last outdoor activity as a family this past weekend was venturing out onto Sparks Lake, on the backside of Mt. Bachelor, canoeing around the lake at twilight.

Moonlight & Starlight Moon Adventure

We spent 4 hours with our guide, Nick, from Wanderlust Tours here in Bend, and learned so much about local nature, geology, astrology, flora, and fauna—and the fun of begin with other people that we had just met.

One thing that we’ve loved about nature, having always prioritized outdoor activities with our kids, is that we learn that the universe does not revolve around us. [Photo cred below: Wanderlust Tours]

The outdoor elements, sometimes so unpredictable, can change in a moment’s time, challenging us to be STILL and know that HE is God.

Sometimes getting to the destination can be frustrating when it comes to 5 different personalities, but when it’s all said and done … and you’re outside, under the stars, listening to the sounds of the mountain water seeping out, which sounds like it’s under the lake. (Really!) When Mount Bachelor erupted 10,000 years ago, it formed a lava dam that began capturing snowmelt and rainwater to become Sparks Lake. But cracks in the volcanic rock mean the lake is gradually draining water through the summer. It’s actually quite marshy by the end of summer, so we went at the prime time!

I don’t know. There was just something about the 4 hours spent on the water, with my family, that made me so grateful for God’s love and the world that He created for us. How beautiful and awesome! [Canoe tour photos, photo cred: Abbs Co Photography]
