Labor Day Weekend

What a weekend!!  It was the perfect blend of things to do and relaxing.  Those are the perfect kind of weekends.  Friday night kicked off with a big sleepover with Evan and Addy.  The kids had been begging since school started to have a sleepover.  The long weekend was the perfect time to do it.  They had been counting down the days until the sleepover.  Right after school the fun started.  The boys went and played disc golf  while us girls went to the mall for some girl time.  The girls loved shopping at Claire's.  We went to dinner at Chili's and then came home for movies, WiiU and late night talking.  They had so much fun!!  
 Saturday morning it was pancakes and bacon for everyone and then a trip to the pool.  Although it is September and college football season it is still 95 degrees and really hot.  We enjoyed some fun time at the pool before game time!
 We made it back in plenty of time for kick off!!!  Love college football season and Saturdays that are full of football.
 Matt has been wanting to try his had at some serious BBQing.  So he got a pork butt and spent all morning smoking it and getting it perfect.  It was so yummy!!  I think he has a new job for all football games.
 My parents came over to join in on the football game fun and brought these super cute cookies.  Auburn did well and pulled out a great win.  So excited to see how the season goes for the Tigers.  We will be cheering them on all season.
 Everyone was worn out after the sleepover and full day.  Kate and Matt fell asleep watching some of the night football games.  To me that is the perfect day - all day football!
 Sunday after church, the kids went back to the pool for the afternoon.  We then had a impromptu dinner with our leftover pork with the McClures.  They then had us over for s'mores.  It was the perfect way to say goodbye to summer.  Even though we have been back in school for a month we are holding on to every bit of summer that we can.

Today was a very low key day.  Matt had to work so we didn't do anything special.  Just enjoyed sleeping in and being lazy.  Then got some cleaning and things done around the house.  I would say it was a great Labor Day weekend!
