my birthday weekend part1

A couple of weeks ago, for my birthday,  we met friends  up in Eastern Oregon.
Not that anyone pays much attention to names, but my blog name...the Friday Friends...was a name I had given to an e-mail group/forum of my friends from all over: Washington, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Wyoming  (we've moved a lot).
I've been doing this  forum thing for over 12 years now, and we've always talked about a reunion  (or 'union' as most of them had never met before) and this year I decided to do it.

We have a family cabin in Northeast Oregon, Wallowa Lake,  and that is the location I chose.  We invited families and....well, this is  day one of my birthday weekend.   With my good friends and good family from all over  the place.
There were about  30 of us all together.

I left a lot of free time for people to do as they wanted, but there was one thing a day that was required.
For Day one, that was  "Beer Butt Chicken with the Chuckwagon Sisters"!
Thanks to the Old Town Cafe in Joseph,  Oregon.   They opened up just for us that night.    Those Chuckwagon sisters were wonderful and fun and they get a  5 star from us.  Not only was their chicken good, they were wonderful sports and made it a good night for us all.

Thanks friends for a wonderful weekend.   (I'll post  days  2 and 3 later)
