Thursday evening through Tuesday morning, Don, Jenny & girls stayed at our house. We had a wonderful time with them. Luckily for us, it was Labor Day weekend, so we had Monday off to spend with them too. We kept quite busy, Thursday evening Ava and I went to the park, we chatted, had a campfire and chatted some more. Friday evening we went to supper with them and some other friends and had another campfire. Saturday, we went to the air museum in McMinnville to see an IMAX show, to the market and then us girls went to the mall so I could get Ava her late birthday present. Sunday, we spent the day at Boring another wonderful day. Monday we hung out at home and Jenny & I got a pedicure! We had Pedginski's over for supper and then visited for most of the evening. We really enjoyed having our friends stay with us for a long time!
