Labor Day Weekend

We spent Labor Day weekend camping with Melissa, Thomas, Erica, Derek, and a bunch of their friends near Turkey Run in Indiana. 

Right when we got their Saturday, we started the weekend off right... :)

Melissa had a really sweet outfit on :) and Derek said we had to get a picture.

After this, my camera did not make another appearance :(

Saturday we went to a local lake and swam, then went back to the campsite and had a few beverages.

Sunday we woke up and went on a canoe trip! It was fun, definitely an experience.  I figure if Steve and I can make it through bossing each other around on a canoe we can make it through anything! :)

Unnecessary, but cute picture of me and the hubs...

We got up early Monday and headed for home.  We were met with a surprise when we got home...a clogged pipe!! We called a plumber and were charged a ridiculous amount for him to do nothing.  Mom, Dad, and Steve Sr. headed over and had everything working in about an hour.  Thank God for great parents!!!!!!!

It was a good weekend, with the exception of the whole plumbing problem.  Not sure if I will ever camp again...this girl was made for hotels and restaurants. :)

One of my favorite visitors!!!

Last weekend Raker came down to visit!  We hadn't seen her since going to the Cards/Cubs game with her and Mike in May, so it was way overdue!

On Friday we went to McGorry's for dinner, and then headed back to the house. 

I swear his eyes are closed in almost every picture I take of him. :)
Ando came over and joined in the fun. :)

I obviously had a really good night!

It was the perfect night for a fire!

On Saturday we spent all day working outside....yes, when you come stay with us you have to earn your keep. ;)

We got all cleaned up and then headed out to Steph and Dustin's for a cookout and to watch the UFC fights.

It was a great weekend spent with some of my favorite people! <3
