Labor Day 2005

Karen and the girlsThis is us on Labor Day. Aren’t we cute? We had a great time that day. My brother, his wife and the girls came over to my parents home. We watched old Fat Albert cartoons on DVD and ate hotdogs, potato salad, baked beans and chips. After lunch my brother, Jack, and my sister-in-law, Ashley, and I played a short version of Trivial Pursuit the 90s version. Guess who won?
Trivial PursuitHere’s a picture of us sitting around the table with baby Zoe being cheered on by Mackenzie. Zoe is not quite 10 months old and yet and she can stand up all by herself but she has not yet taken to walking on her own. I think she will be doing it before the end of the month because she is so eager. She gets so proud of herself that she claps. Oh so cute! Later, we went down to the community pool and the girls, my brother and my father went swimming. My sister-in-law, the baby and I watched as they played in the water. Both Hannah and Mackenzie are really good swimmers for their age.

They went home early that day because the girls had their first day back to school the next day. Mackenzie started kindergarten and Hannah started third grade. My how time does fly! It seems like only yesterday when Hannah with two years old and she couldn’t say Aunt Karen so we decided she would call me Aunt KK. So that’s what I’ve been known as ever since. I think my grandma Elsie is the one who started calling me KK and my mom has done so for a long time.

You might be wondering why we didn’t go to the beach since we are in San Diego. Well, half of the county went to the beach so we decided to stay home. So this is how I spent Labor Day. What did you do?

    Slept in, read a few books, made some yummy potato salad and bratwursts, baked cupcakes, and played around on the computer.

    Lovely. 🙂

    Took the HuggaMutt for a walk on the levee. I was disappointed to be one of only seven people out all morning. Maybe we should have slept in? But Husband RJ cooked a couple of short ribs for us.

    Glad to have you back blogging. Bless you both!
