From Lake Livin’ to Country Club Crashin’

It was a great Labor Day weekend, spent with friends and family. The first part of the weekend we drove down to Lake Cumberland to stay with friends at their lake house, and enjoy boating, cooking out and just taking it easy on the porch.

The kids had a ball and actually got in the water for a bit. We had a scare Monday morning, though, when our two-year-old took a tumble down the concrete steps at the house and scraped and bruised the right side of his face. We’ve been calling him “Raging Bull” ever since. I had been expecting something to happen – Little Guy has no fear. It’s pretty sad when you visit a place and the first thing you think is “Where is the nearest hospital?”

We then ventured back home on Monday and transitioned from fleece and hiking boots to Lilly Pulitzer for the annual Labor Day bash at my mother-in-law’s club. The kids were in heaven with the pony rides and carnival games. Both were so excited to ride on a sweet little pony that Miss E. named “Della.” We then enjoyed the buffet and finished most of our meal on the patio before the skies opened up and poured rain. Luckily, we were able to quickly grab a table in the dining room. So, after catching up with some old acquaintances, it was time to head home and get ready for bed. I feel like I need another day to recover from the holiday. Whew!

Hope everyone had a great Labor Day. The pools are closed now. Pack away the beach towels and swimming suits. It’s time to seriously think about fall!

Yes the necessary toddler scare--we had one too on the bleachers at a foot ball game. Your weekend sounds lovely! xoxo

How wonderful...so quintessentially Labor Day! Glad to hear your little guy is OK, although that must have been quite scary.
