Labor Day in the United States is a holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It is a celebration of the American labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.
Our big celebration every year since 1998 (Audrey was one year old) has been the three of us and our four-legged children having a day of fun, sun, lounging in the Step 2 kiddie pool, grilling corn on the cob, garlic potatoes & onions in foil and porterhouse steak! Well this year was no different! Brought some snacks, my phone, regular digital camera and my little pocket one too (in the purple case), and my inhaler incase my asthma acts up!
Audrey brought a stack of books! Dressed in heels of course!
However this next picture is really the only picture I’m suppose to post of her… her hands. Really, that’s it, she’s 17! Those with teenagers or has had teenagers need no further explanation, right? To help you that haven’t been there yet… I was “informed” (picture me doing quotie marks) that I can’t post any pictures of her, ever, on my blog. When I asked “but I’d like to include you when you’re with us too!” She replied “Okay then, just my hands” so seriously. So here she is! Isn’t she cute!
On this next photo pay close attention to the 4 stems sticking straight up with NOTHING on them (oh and there’s more than 4)! They were sunflowers! That’s right, we should be enjoying big beautiful yellow flowers (Audrey’s favorite)! Guess what happened? It was a deer buffet! They just strolled right down the line biting the flowers off! The first year that happened!
Audrey of course had this close by! Do you know what the quote on her case is from? It’s a TV show! (I’ll tell you in the comments)
The stars Audrey and I found several years ago and we each have a set to put on our steak for pictures. Silly Great tradition!
Here’s the silly hubby…
Who is also a very loving hubby and daddy!
