Labor Day...

...as I've said before, Labor Day is a weekend of celebrating my sweet Daddy.  This year was no exception.  My niece and nephew came into town for the weekend to help celebrate so we started off with some adventure....CANOEING!

Now, I love to be outdoors and was totally excited to be out on the river.  Well, until it took almost twice as long to get down than river than it should have.  We haven't had a lot of rain before the weekend, so the river was low and slow.  All in all we had a great time, but man oh man, the bridge where we they pick us up, didn't come quick enough!

The girls were hilarious!  Emily got bored and fell asleep half way down and Elaina was loving the rocks in the water.  She had a huge smile the entire time! 

After a day of canoeing, it was time to relax with the family and watch some football, it was opening weekend of college football.  And there's not much better than watching football in your pj's and eating pizza!!!

The next day, we had linner (that's lunch/dinner for those who weren't aware) with my family and had Daddy's famous "Chocolate Lush" for dessert.  Elaina was disappointed there was no birthday cake! 

For his birthday, we gave him gift certificates to this awesome little hole in the wall restaurant/bar named "Twin Kegs".  He used to get me their hamburgers to go and bring it to me when I worked at Enterprise Rent-A-Car and he's been talking about wanting one of their burgers.  So, now we get to go together!!!
Happy Birthday Daddy!!  We love you more than you could ever know!!!
