Labor Day Weekend

I hope you all had a great Labor Day Weekend. We sure did! It was jam-packed full of fun!

Friday night, we went out to dinner at Smugala's with our neighbors across the street. It was a beautiful evening so we sat outside on the patio and the kids had a great time playing and eating dinner together. :-)

Then Saturday, we got up and met my Dad's side of the family for our annual Family Picnic at Rend Lake. The weather couldn't have been more perfect and our pavilion was right on the lake so it was beautiful. We BBQ'd and had so much great food and fun. It was so nice to see family I don't see very often. The kids had a great time playing with their cousins outside all day!

Then Sunday, the kids and I went to my sister's church since Jackson's been begging to go there. My nephews love their class at church and had been telling Jackson all about it. So he finally got to visit and he was so excited!! It was a wonderful service and we all enjoyed it.

Then after church, Jake and his brothers took their kids to see The Goonies at the movie theater. A theater in St. Charles has been showing a few old classic movies on Sunday afternoons for $5 during the Summer. So they decided to all go and take the kids. Avery was a little bit too young and I didn't think she'd care to see that movie so she and I went to lunch at Mod Pizza and then went and got her new Tap Shoes for dance class that starts next week. Then we also took some library books back and got a few new ones to read.

After we were done with all of that and Jake and Jackson got home, we had decided to spend the evening at Six Flags. Six Flags is running their annual flash sale on Season Passes so Jake and I decided to get them for our family since we all seem to enjoy it so much. So the kids were super excited to get to go back and spend a few hours there Sunday evening.

Then yesterday, Jake played golf in the morning while I did laundry and cleaned the house. Later in the day we had my sister and her family over and our neighbors over for a little swim party. It was a really fun day!

I hope you all had a great Labor Day Weekend.
