We spent Memorial Day evening with the Morrisons, Gillards, Baleras and Mannings. Between the five families there are thirteen boys and one girl. We celebrated Charlene's birthday. Ken gave her a new barbecue grill and we broke it in with lots of hamburgers. All of these couples (except us) knew eachother as singles and have been friends ever since, so there are lots of stories and laughs to enjoy. Bjorn went back to Lynden tonight. He is excited about Jenny returning from Europe today and is planning to drive down to Corvalis next weekend to see her.
