Labor Day Weekend 2013

Some friends of ours invited us and another family/friends to their lake house over Labor Day weekend.  I was feeling stressed with needing to get things done at home (canning/freezing veggies), plus I had to get a bathing suit (I hadn't gotten one since 8th grade!), but we made it and couldn't have been happier to have gone!
 
We enjoyed some great rides on the pontoon boat.
 The kids even took turns steering.

 We saw some cool wildlife in the swampy area...a Great Blue Heron.
 Did a little tubing...actually a lot of tubing.
 Played in the water looking for shells and other cool stuff.
 Practiced swimming.
And even did some fishing, which I regret not getting pictures of. :-/

The best part was relaxing and spending time with some great friends.
I didn't ask permission to post the kids' pictures, so I covered their faces...and of course all the faces actually facing me weren't my own kids!  LOL!

That's funny on the last picture. I have the same challenge when I take pics at the kiddos' schools. :)

Tubing is fun, isn't it?!?!? Glad you had a fun time out, and good for you getting a new swimsuit. Sounds like you were due. :)
