Labor Day Weekend 2010
Oh my gosh! How lucky are Chris and I to have such great friends? Beyond lucky!
Labor Day Weekend we were so lucky to have some great friends come and visit us for the weekend. Corey Hanley, Rochelle Owens, Kelsey Burns, Me and Chris from left to right in the photo.
Corey, Rochelle and Kelsey all came down from Portland to spend the weekend hanging out with us. We had such a great time. Friday night we grilled ribs and sat around bs’ing.
Saturday we relaxed with our coffee and enjoyed the sun before heading out to Lost Creek Reservoir to spend an awesome day on the boat.
We took a TON of pictures.
The guys were silly, as usual and us girls got to sit in the sun (or shade) and gossip and visit.
It was gorgeously hot and sunny and peaceful. We laughed and ate and drank and just wasted the last “Saturday of summer” away on the water. Couldn’t have been a better day.
Sunday we decided to head south. South to California. Redding to be specific, as two of our guests had never been to the In N Out! Unbelievable, I know. So we loaded up in the burb and took off for extra hot and sunny Redding California.
We had a great drive and enjoyed our burgers.
We also stopped by Lake Shasta.
We checked out the Shasta Dam (where we are at in the top photo) and then also stopped at a couple of different places on the lake to explore and hang out.
We did some people watching and the boys found another guy with a jet boat to bs with. (Corey has a jet boat, too).
After a relaxing afternoon hanging at Shasta we headed north, back to Oregon. But WAIT! We had to stop by the Liquor Expo! Liquor is cheaper in Cali than in Oregon ya know. Well, unfortunately we passed the exit! NO worries said captain Chris as he pulled a U-Turn on the freeway using one of those gravel emergency vehicle access spots! Lots of screaming and laughter ensued from the back seat as the plume of gravel dust swirled behind us. Not to worry…there was no traffic and we could see for miles. We were never in danger but it made for a good giggle! And, of course, we were able to purchase discount liquor, which was very important!
We were home late and exhausted, but with smiles on our faces.
Monday our guests thought they were going to head home, but change of plans! The boys went fishing and us girls went and had lunch and then did a little wine tasting at a very local winery (about 5 minutes from the house).
After that we just decided to relax on the sunny patio and enjoy the afternoon.
Chris and I really had such a great and fun time. We all just got along so great and there was no drama or silliness. I just really want to thank Corey, Rochelle, Kelsey and Chris for such an awesome weekend. You guys are the best! I can’t wait to do it again soon!
