Labor Day Weekend 2010

It was a good one folks. My oldest and her family came in from Ohio bringing 3 of my precious grandkids! I took Friday off so I had a nice long 4 day weekend filled with fun and love.

Beth and her family came out Friday. The only person missing from everything was my son Ryan. He and I are estranged again. It's not how I want things, it is just how it has to be now. But this is a happy post, not one filled with sadness.

We all visited for a while and then decided to eat at Pizza Inn in town. After all, we had so much going on neither Joe nor I wanted to cook.

After we ate we drove across the street to Noble Park. The kids love seeing the geese and ducks.

Amy and I joked that these pictures WILL be used for blackmail....if necessary!

Man..did this ever bring back memories for me. Mostly of being dizzy and throwing up. Aren't you glad I shared?

Most of the kids were a little dizzy when they got off. I have to admit that was a bit amusing!

As you can see from the last few pictures it was starting to get dark. Who am I kidding? It WAS dark. So we headed on home.

This was an evening that I will never forget. Filled with love and happiness and gratitude.

Such a wonderful time with family. Great pics! Who doesn't love Pizza Inn and the park? Sometimes we top it off with DQ.
