One sweet Labor Day weekend

Labor Day ROCKED this year. It started bright and early Friday morning at Swiss Days. We were not the only ones thinking that...it was a zoo!

The scones were SO good. I will be going every year to at least get a scone.

It was hot, but so worth it!

{I - gasp! - forgot my camera...so thanks, April, for remembering!}

That night we got to meet our friend's new addition, Rocky Charles, at the hospital. He was born at almost nine pounds...way to go Danielle! Such a cute, chubby little guy.

Claire just loved him.

Saturday thru Monday we went camping with the fam. Claire and Corgan loved jumping on the air mattress.

We were right next to this little river. The kids entertained themselves by throwing pine cones in.

Nate and me

My cousin Nancy brought bubbles and they were a hit!

My brother, Ryan, and his cute girlfriend Olivia.

Group shot, with a few people missing who had already left. This was taken on our last morning after cleaning up the campground...so we all look really awesome.

Finally, on the evening of Labor Day, we went to a luau at Thanksgiving Point. YUM, I love luau food! Here's everyone waiting on the grass for the show to begin.

All the girls (minus the moms)

These kids love playing together!

Claire got to go up on stage and learn the hula. She was front and center and loved every second of it. I've got to get her in a dance class.

I've decided that we need to petition that it be Labor Week, not Labor Day.
