My husband and I moved to Bend, Oregon from California 10 years ago to raise our two young children at the time. We loved the area because of all the hiking, skiing, rafting, biking, etc. that is available "just outside" our door. My husband is a retired firefighter and I volunteer with the local high school as well as serve on the board of directors for a local non-profit. We love to travel and look forward to doing a lot more when our youngest daughter graduates from college.
