Labor Day Weekend

Hope everyone had a wonderful and restful Labor Day weekend.

We were able to travel to Tennessee to visit some friends and enjoy the beautiful mountain scenery.
Here's a glimpse of our weekend activities.

Their lake house - so beautiful & peaceful, but what a climb up from the lake.....whew! You better make sure you have everything you need cause you sure don't want to hike back up.

The girls getting ready to go tubing.

These girls have sure missed each other.
We don't live in the same town anymore so it's the first time they've seen each other in a year.

G getting the instructions on knee-boarding - didn't exactly work out right so she said she went belly-boarding instead.

The younger girls watching M show 'em how the wake board works.

Beautiful mountain views.

This is my favorite view - from the deck with a cup of coffee in my hand.

The girls made smores after dinner.

They formed a band while we were there called The Butterfingers.

Care to know where the name came from? Let's just say they thought it up while making their own breakfast one morning.

On the way home on Sunday, we ventured over to Pigeon Forge for a little shopping. What a great place. I've never been before & couldn't believe all there was to do.

Here are a couple of pictures of the older part of town.

Wish I could've had more time to explore - maybe next time.

I'd love to hear what you did for the weekend.

Sounds like a fun weekend! We usually go to the lake on Labor Day but this weekend we just stayed at my grandparent's farm and shopped while the guys cut firewood. :) We got the better deal!

We had guests this wknd. Saturday we tried to go boating and tubing, but after an hour or so we got rained out. Sunday was a beautiful day. We boated, tubed, pulled up to the beach and played sand volleyball. Monday we took E school clothes shopping. Ever tried that with a 15yr old boy! Not easy!

I hate we missed the Butterfingers concert. Are they available for hire? :)
