The Weekend- Sept. 5-7

So here we are, it's Labor Day* and starting Tuesday I no longer can break out my whites. Wait, like I trust myself enough to buy (and wear!) anything white, besides T-Shirts. But we are at what many believe to be the last week of Summer. Schools are starting, the air is becoming more cool and we have just a little bit less sunshine everyday. But let us not forget that it is still a three day weekend! Yoo-hoo! As for us, we have almost nothing planned. Quite a rarity I assure you. Here is a sampling of things we MIGHT do, if we feel so inclined:

  • Nap
  • Take a walk around the Stone Arch Bridge, one of our very favorite spots
  • Visit the parents
  • Pick some apples
  • Have a bonfire
  • Drink lattes (really, we do this every weekend, but these are the last of summer!)
  • Take some pictures
  • Generally be lazy and enjoy some much needed time off
  • Camping?
So there you have it. The end of summer. I know I will get some kick back on singing Summer's death toll, but let's face it, once mid-September hits it is cardigan and scarf time! Except for those Indian Summer days, sigh, such beautiful, beautiful days.

So, in the spirit of trying new features out for this here blog I am excited to add polls. A poll you say? Yes, polls, for all of you out there in cyber-land that would love to interact, but are to Mid-Western to. I will feature a different poll each week and we'll just see where it takes us from there. I have a few ideas of things I can do with these polls, but we'll see what the response is first.

Shall we? Your very first poll.

Have a safe and happy long weekend everyone!

* A little Labor Day history. Labor Day became a national holiday in 1882 ,"It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country." Well deserved I think. It's just too bad that not EVERYONE can have the day off. But then again, no one asked me. :)


  1. Minnetonka Orchards has a bunch of free kid friendly stuff going on -- it's their open house weekend. We're going tomorrow. Hay ride, corn maze, free apple smores, etc.

  2. That sounds like fun Rachel! Have you checked out Gale Woods Farm? There's a link from post last Friday. AWESOME. I'm sure Evan would love it. :)
