Labor Day began with a trip to the zoo with Sean, Julie and Courtney.
Christian has a newfound interest in photography.
He took these:
After the zoo we had pizza at Pie 5.
The next part of our day was a hike to the Y with Camille and her family. It was SO hot. A guy on the trail had some sort of fancy watch that told the temperature. He said it read 103. As is documented in the photos, I thought I was going to die.
The kids were troopers.
I love this picture. Mike the pack mule taking care of his girl.
We then headed to Bridal Veil Falls for some waffles.
Apparently everyone else wanted waffles too so there was a 45 minute wait. Randy and Mike took the kids to the fish pond.
This is what about $80 in waffles looks like. Delicious, scrumptious waffles.
Grilled pizza: it's what's for dinner.
Mission: dejunking. I am slowly making my way through the closets. This pile is going to a cute little cousin.
These kittens are getting lots of love.
Andrew and Bev have late start on Fridays, so they get to stay up a little later on Thursday nights. Their latest favorite is Psych on Netflix.
Jessi asked Mike to print off the Lyrics to Roar by Katie Perry. She had them memorized by the next morning.
We had our Mustang Stampede PTA fundraiser at school. I think I had some sort of food poisoning, so I sat in the shade most of the day. Christian ran hard and made his goal of laps.
Mike scheduled us a weekend trip to the Grand America for our 16th anniversary. The hotel was amazing and the brunch was an experience.
We then got to see Katie play at the U. She is amazing.
When we got home Drew had prepared us all the fixins for a "romantic night"--some fresh DPs, popcorn and a movie.
The grapes are on, and man are they good. We have so many that I joked with Mike that we should start a winery.
Grapes off the vine, berries and watermelon from the store: it's what's for dinner.
