We love visitors!

This past weekend we had some dear friends from Oklahoma visit.

That's right- someone likes us enough to fly all the way from Oklahoma to come to Dinky Town, Oregon to hang out with us...and they aren't family members!

Of course, after dragging them all over the northwest part of the state they may regret their decision, but at least they got a 4 day respite from the 110° heat in OKC. 82° was probably cold for them. I was too lazy to bring my big kid camera so you get to see point and shoot pics.


We day tripped up to Cannon Beach one day, where we shopped, and ate, walked along the beach, and ate, and drove, and ate. We also hit up the gianormo outlet mall just north of us for some tax free shopping (no sales tax in Oregon). We took them to our favorite fruit stand for fresh raspberries, marionberries, peaches and their amazing milkshakes! They liked it so much we stopped there again later that day for round 2! We spent Sunday at a few local wineries enjoying an amazing brunch, wine tasting, incredible views and lots of laughs.

I love that we have friends who are such go with the flow people. We have our list of things we want to do, but are in no rush to get everything crammed in, there's no set times to be anywhere. It was really just about having a good time, enjoying each others company, and of course eating. :) By the end of the weekend we had walked 200 miles so we just decided to go see a movie and eat sandwiches for dinner! Relaxing ending to a fun weekend.

Next up- wedding this weekend, and a trip back to Oklahoma next weekend (prepare for pictures of me melting)
