Labor Day

We had a fun Labor Day weekend. Sunday afternoon we were playing outside, and our neighbor walked over and invited us on a boat ride to dinner. We grabbed the life jackets and off we went.

Our neighbors, Brent and Laurie, have a really nice boat and are so kind to let us enjoy it too. Here's Brent F. and Delia driving to dinner.

This is Laurie and Ben with me and Jonathan. She's expecting the "Final Flickinger" as she calls it. Due in December right around Jon Jon's birthday.

Skogie's is a really neat restaurant at one of the marinas here in town. They have a courtesy dock for customers to use while they eat.

The restaurant is very casual. Lots of folks in bathing suits and coverups. We ate inside the porch, but there is also air conditioning inside, and there are more picnic tables outside. Here are Ben and Coleman waiting on their chicken fingers.

Jonathan and Delia were at the head of the table.

On Monday, we packed a picnic lunch and headed to a new-to-us park in town. It has a very shady playground that we drive past a good bit. The yahoos were super excited to try out a new park. The weather was perfect for an outside adventure.

This was Jonathan's first time to swing. I couldn't be certain, but he seemed to enjoy it!

After we played for a while, we walked the trail through the woods and down by the lake.

If you look closely, you can see the Blue Ridge in the background. I love that the mountains are so close to our home. It was a perfect day.
