Labor Day Weekend

We did some fun things over the Labor Day weekend.  We started it Saturday with a visit to Great Gram.  We had not been to her new apartment (which she moved in to in May). We had a nice visit with her. She is 96 years old and doing wonderfully well!  Great Gram allowed the girls to go through some of her seashells and pick out some to take home.  Heidi and Rachel particularly enjoyed this.

Sunday we went to church and enjoyed a nice lunch afterward.  Hanging out at home for the afternoon, Heidi found a Christmas Carol song book.  There's nothing wrong with singing Christmas carols in September is there???
 Then it was snuggle nap time with mom.
 Or not.
Monday - Labor Day - our local YMCA had a Y-to-Y 10K road race (we actually have 2 Ys pretty close to us). As part of that event, they were having an arts and crafts fair.  The price was right and we were available, so we thought we'd give a boomerang booth a try.
It was great to have a space in front of our booth that we could throw and catch.  Jason and Rachel had fun doing some "team" catching.  Jason would throw the boomerang and then pick Rachel up and run to it for her to catch it.
They got pretty good at it and it was fun to watch!
After we closed down our booth, we went to Zaxby's for a yummy lunch.  Then it was back to the Y for a couple hours of swimming.  Our girls just LOVE the pool and Rachel is becoming quite the little swimmer! Heidi's latest thing is to do flips under water - she tries to do 2 or 3 in a row.  Emma loves floating around on the pool noodles.  After drying off, we went out to dinner at Willy's and then to Menchie's Yogurt for a birthday treat for me. They all sang Happy Birthday to me in the car on the way home.  What a fun weekend!
