Labor Day Fun

~ Labor Day Fun ~


With all the excitement of school starting and our recent trips to the hospital, I forgot to post our picnic during Labor Day Weekend! We traveled to a nice little park tucked away from all the city life. The kids love it for all the fun things to do, I love it because it's clean and they have bathrooms!


First order of business was choosing our shady picnic table and then securing a spot on the dock for fishing!

The kids didn't have to wait long to get a critter! Lots of Crawdads!



As the sun moved over us, so did the kids to a shady spot under the trees to try fishing for Catfish! The kids were so successful they had a little fan club to cheer them on!



We enjoyed a special surprise when the local high school band arrived to promote their fundraising efforts to perform in the 2009 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!







The kids were ready to take a break from fishing, so we went on the Carousel!







 
Along our train ride, we see Auntie enjoying a quiet moment to read her book! Hi Auntie!


Perfect opportunity to make a memory! Say Cheese!



Auntie, will you play with me? SURE, let's go!






One more ride on the train before the park closes!





Glad I didn't see this before hand, but after closer inspection of this photo we see that most of the gauges were labeled NON~OP!

Well the kids are worn-out tired after a great picnic day! Time to head for home and get in a bathtub filled with bubbles to disenfect! ha ha

Oh that all looks like loads of fun. You do so many things with and for your kids...they are having a funfilled happy childhood which they will look back on with the fondest of memories. That little choo choo train is so cute. Don't worrry as long as the brake control doesn't say non-op!

This just looks like toooo much fun!! I would love to visit there with my grandchildren!!
We spent Labor Day in the Pool, because our kids started school the week before Labor Day!!
We still had a big time, swimming and grilling out!!
Thinking of posting an End of Summer post.. I'm ready for fall, but I DO LOVE SUMMER!!
