scenes from our weekend : adventure to Todd Lake

bits of our weekend : adventure to Todd Lake | photos by Alyson Brown for Unruly Things over the weekend we headed to one of our very favorite nearby hikes – Todd Lake. I always describe this hike as magical because it’s just that. exciting for all ages, especially kiddos.

this time of year the wildflowers are in full bloom, which Wolf adores. and what’s even more exciting is that there are thousands of tadpoles in the lake. they’re illegal to take home, but plenty of fun to gently poke at and scoop into little hands to be put back into the water safely. we all wore our Tevas and waded around in the water which was a blast. next time I think we’ll take out bathing suits, at least one for Wolf since he was soaking wet by the end of the hike.

I definitely recommend Todd Lake to any newcomers or visitors to Bend. the views are outstanding and the hike is one of the best around.

Wolf and the blue bike

this weekend, Wolf graduated to a shiny new blue bike for his birthday - the Specialized Hotrock 12 - and he’s pretty stoked about it. he picked up pedaling faster than I thought he would! the brakes are still a little tricky for him but he’s getting there. I imagine those training wheels will be off before no time.

if you follow me on Instagram, you’re probably familiar with my Wolf hashtags. #hellomynameiswolf, #wolfupinthesky and #wolfandtheredbike to name a few. I started a new hashtag – #wolfandthebluebike if you’d like to follow along.

Wolf turns THREE.

our little Wolf turned THREE yesterday and we celebrated all weekend. Saturday we threw a little backyard bash and invited all his buddies over to party. Wolf told me that he wanted a blue cake for his birthday so I obliged, and of course ran with it for a little blue theme. blue balloons, indigo blue tie dye everywhere, blue candles and that blue cake. our pals at Fearless Baking made the cake and those incredible cut out cookies. amazing right? we had a three piñata, bubbles galore and sunprints for the kids to create. it was so much fun and Wolf had the time of his life.

I still can’t believe he’s already three!!
