Happy Labor Day!







Each year, our entire neighborhood meets in an open area and has breakfast together on Labor Day. Each family brings a dish to pass and their own paper plates and silverware. There are usually around 80-100 people who attend. Tables are set up, someone prays, and we all eat and talk together. Our neighborhood is kind of funny. We all are very close throughout the summer, but once fall hits, we seem to draw back into our own individual lives until the next Spring.
I am making tons of blueberry muffins this morning!
What do you guys do on Labor Day?

I put these graphics up so that if anyone is looking for something to put on their blogs, they can use one.

Have a great day!!

Happy Labor Day! We are still recovering from being sick so we may go out on the boat if it doesn't rain.

LOL at how many cute graphics you found! You are the QUEEN of graphics!

Happy Labor Day!

Working around the house. DH hopefully is working on the porch. I'm renting a carpet shampoo machine, due to an accident one of the puppies had last night. :( Kids start school tomorrow, yahoo! ;)

we usually do a cookout with our families, but this year we did it yesterday at my brother's new house (and killed two birds with one stone, so to speak, since it was his birthday too)...

how cool of your neighborhood to do that!! what a great idea....

Every Labor Day weekend we have Pirate Day at our sailing club. It's a lot of fun with the main event being a huge water gun/balloon fight on the water between all the sailboats!

Your neighborhood cookout sound like a great idea! Hope you have fun!

Happy Labor Day to you as well.
I usually head out to the land of "Anne Of Green Gables" There are lots of gift shops out there on the boardwalk, they have their final blowout sale of the season and close up shop tomorrow. This is when I sink my teeth into the first bit of Christmas shopping. I got lots of goodies this year!

Your neighbors equal 100 people, my neighbors' ages are 100!

It makes for a quiet neighborhood anyway!

I love that your neighborhood does a breakfast party every year -- that is sooo cool! Our neighborhood is friendly, but nothing like that. (we also get closer in the spring and go back to hibernating in the fall!)

We had a great day here, I'm posting about it later.
