As I said last time two my best girlfriends came to spend a long weekend with me. We had a great time and did lots of cool stuff! I have a couple of posts in the works but here is a rundown of our adventures.
Friday we got up and visited over coffee and then decided to head out for a walk.

It was a beautiful day, not too hot. We walked just shy of 3 miles in a little less than an hour, chatting and catching up on life the whole time. When we got back we got cleaned up and headed out to our favorite local pizza place, Kaleidoscope Pizza. We got a half Pesto Supreme and half American Beauty. The pizza is so delicious!

Afterwards we did some Old Navy shopping and then went to Roxy Ann Winery for some tasting. I didn't love anything this time, but we still had a nice time.
We got home and decided to relax on the beach before dinner.

Dinner was grilled salmon with baked potatoes and side salad. Delicious! We stayed up visiting for a while but had to get up early Saturday so called it a relatively early night.
Saturday we headed out to Grants Pass to go on the Hellgate Jet Boat tour of the Rogue River. Chris and I did this last summer with my other best girlfriend Heidi, but Kelsey and Jennifer had never been.

I can honestly say this restaurant is probably *the* best restaurant we've been to here in Southern Oregon. The restaurant was beautiful, the service was amazing, the food was delicious, the prices were reasonable and we had a great view of the river.

When we got home we hung out on the patio, in the sun or shade depending. Chris and I took a little nap and Kelsey and Jennifer read magazines and listened to music in the sun. It was a very relaxing evening. We had some margaritas and enjoyed some more time on the beach. Dinner was grilled steak and salad. We didn't have any early morning plans, but we were all feeling pretty tired so we headed to bed not too late.
Sunday we had a lazy morning before heading out to spend the day on the lake. It was hot but so great!

A little bit more visiting when we got home and then it was time for the girls to get packed up and ready for early Monday flights home.
We had a really spectacular, fun-filled weekend. Lots of laughs and sunshine and memories. I am so glad they came to hang out and am already looking forward to next time!
