Labor Day 2008

It was a glorious weekend filled with lots of lounging and family time. Two things that go very well together and plain don't come around often enough for us. We did the movie thing, which is rare for this household. The verdict:

I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry & Three Pigs and a Baby - ick.

Game Plan, The Bucket List, & Juno - yes.

We didn't get a chance to watch Nancy Drew.

Yesterday we went to the beach with friends. It's been a while since we've gone, and it was so much fun. The foggy, cool day burned off to be a sunny, mildly warm one. Nate and the kids were basically boogie boarding in the water almost the entire four and a half hours we were there. They were so happy and exhausted by day's end!

Friends were kind enough to let us borrow their boards. I don't think this one fits Nate as well as it does Ian.

Happy Jordan.

This dead jellyfish was a crowd pleaser when it washed ashore.

A few Twizzlers to revive energy.

The Amazing Cindy & Amber teamed up to conquer chilly waves. Alas, they were braver than I.

I cheered all on from the warm sandy beach.

It was a good day to fall asleep, as demonstrated by Rob.

Check out the blogs of friends who went with: Amber, Abby, & Anne

It's kind of fun to see my Montana friends enjoying the California coast. But, I can't help thinking how fun it might be to be there WITH you. Glad you all a great day out!

Looks like lots of fun! We also spent most of Labor day at the beach. The water was 70 degrees and we had so much fun. Damon and the girls spent most of the time playing in the ocean while I sat and read. It was a perfect day.
