Labor Day

We went out to my parent's house over Labor Day weekend and had a great time as usual. My mom had a scavenger hunt planned for the kids. She worked so hard on planning it all out and the kids had so much fun finding the clues and trying to guess where the next one was hidden. There were two teams and it was fun watching them work together to figure it all out. Here are pictures from the scavenger hunt and the rest of the weekend.

Luke viewing the scavenger hunt invitation. 

There was even a map giving clues of the hiding spots. Didn't they do a great job with all the details? So clever!

Listening to the instructions. Ready. Set. Go. 

"Sarah, I sure hope you know what to do because I'm not so sure I'm following all of this."

Carefully searching for the next clue. 

Sweet cousins.

After each team found all ten clues, the last clue led them to their treasure chests. Full of all kinds of goodies. 

Even Joseph had his very own. 

Believe it or not, Sarah climbed up the steps and went down the slide and loved every minute of it. NO fear I tell ya. No fear!

And she even went by herself! Eek!

Gabriel got an injury and Jacob never left his side. He was very concerned for his cousin. Kristina thought it might need stitches but thankfully it didn't.  At one point Jacob said, "Gabriel I see something white, I think it's your bone." We got a laugh out of that. 

Per their request, they wanted a close up of the cut! Boys!

I told Sarah to give Joseph a kiss. She takes the kisses very seriously. She's got the pucker down. Down. Joseph wasn't too into her you can see. :)
"Hey Joseph, look this way." 

"Turn your head this way Joseph. I can't kiss you if your not looking at me."
"Now just lean in. I got my pucker ready!" 

"Alright, I'll settle for a hug. I understand".

"Ok, now let's get back to playing. I'll just have to try again later."

Luke and Annie were dancing their little hearts out. 

A day at Grandma and Grandpa's always requires a rest time. Too much fun is had!

Luke preferred his own space. 

Happy boy!

Luke loves his shark hat!

The guys playing dominoes and drinking some beer!



So much space to run around! Run it out kids, run it out!

The perfect driveway for sidewalk chalk. 

"Now Sarah, show me how to drive this thing." 
She loved the hair extensions. Such a girl!
Jacob can't get enough baseball. He loves the sport. 

Team work always makes it better!

Meal time is always interesting!

A new neighborhood dog. The kids named him Playful! 



  1. Aww, super cute post girl! LOVE all those pics of Sarah and Joseph! Your captions were just perfect! Great pics with your new camera too!!

  2. I am just SO impressed at all the wonderful together time you manage to get with your family! And with each visit, y'all manage to pack in some serious fun! There's nothing better than cousin time, and I just loved reading all about the Labor Day visit.

    And I had a hard time reading all about Luke in PreK because I just can't believe it's here already! He looks so ready for school and like he's enjoying it so much. What a blessing! Keep the updates coming, girl! Loving your pics, too!

  3. Awww...looks like a fun and full weekend. Your kids are making such great memories. :-)
