Labor Day Weekend

Labor Day Weekend

We had the best Labor Day weekend! David had taken a couple days off work to burn off some extra vacation days he had, so he smoked a pork shoulder to bring with us, and as soon as Riley got off the bus Friday, we dropped Princess at the groomers and headed east!

We got in late Friday night, and Saturday afternoon we hit the lake. Riley is SO enjoying learning how to wake board and it's so cute to watch him get more confident on the board. He tries to jump now and the smile on his face when he lands it is priceless! And of course, there have been some stellar wipeouts as well!

Regan loves to tube, and then we park the boat and swim to cool off, and it's a blast. I can't wait till we have a house on a lake, any lake! Uncle Danny and Aunt Kathy came over that night and we grilled burgers and visited for a while. It was really nice when a small storm blew through after dinner and we sat and watched it rain on the lake.

On Sunday morning, we went to church with Trista and Chris, they have a great church, and I really enjoyed it. It was the first time for our kids to be in a small baptist church so it was quite a change for them! But they enjoyed it as well. Trista said they were singing hymns that day and I thought, I don't know any hymns, but I was surprised, I knew them all, but one!

Then my Aunt Kathy had lunch ready for us, a small pre-birthday party for me and Trista (her birthday is the day after mine) and she had us a cake and everything! It was so yummy. Uncle Danny showed David and Riley his new guns and then took Riley for a ride on his motorcycle, and of course, Riley loved that!

Then we hit the lake again, one last chance to wake board and swim. And then the sad part, we had to pack and come home. We wanted to come home Sunday night so we would all have Monday to relax and get ready for the week. We got home around 11pm, tired, but relaxed! It was a great weekend. I love my family!
