Back to Bend!

Renee recently had an art opening at a Wild River Gallery in Bend Oregon. Brian's grandparents just happen to live in Bend and his Grandmother made it out to the opening where Renee was doing a painting demo.

I believe this was Grandma's favorite. It's a fixer-upper, but I'm sure Grandpa is up to the challenge.

We wished Grandpa was there so he could identify this mountain for us...all Brian knew was this it, "Wasn't Mt. Hood"

While in Bend, Brian's Aunt and her family came up to visit from California. Here is a rare picture of three generations of Brian's family! From left to right: Brian, Uncle Bob, Aunt Bonnie, Grandpa, Cousin Daniel, Renee, Olive, Grandma.

One of the main focuses of the visit was to finish this puzzle. Renee was very determined to get it finished before leaving. Some might call it dedication, some might call it obsession. In any case here's the proof that it happened.

Renee, your opening sounded so exciting. I'll bet everyone enjoyed your "work in progress". Good work on the puzzle. :-)
