Hi kiddos. Happy Hump Day!
For the long Labor Day weekend, we traveled up to my family’s house in West Virginia with good friends, family, and a house full of dogs. Yep. Five dogs.
Can you see Bailey? He kinda blends in with the darkness. He’s majestic like that. We call him Christian Bale sometimes. Bale… Bailey… Dark Knight. No?
Look at the little Hunter Bud… He’s so handsome!
Cuties. Anyway, we traveled to WV with our friends, DJ and Tara (by the way – it’s Tara’s birthday today! YAY! Happy Birthday!)
We did a little hiking, we took the pups swimming, we rode some bikes and four wheelers. We people watched at Wal-Mart, you know… the usual. We did a lot, but at the same time… we did nothing. A perfect long weekend!
Soon my mom and her boyfriend, Don, joined us. We all played epic rounds of cornhole and, of course, drank too much.
stupid hilarious shirts at Wal-Mart (hey, they were less that five bucks!) and made silly faces at the camera.
Hunter even made a new friend! Although, I’m not exactly sure his “new friend” was so happy about it…
We made delicious food… and may have had a slight food explosion. GET THIS — we made a giant tray of enchiladas in a.. you know, freezer to oven safe Pyrex dish. After I took the tray out and let it cool, it COMPLETELY SHATTERED. Thankfully, none of us (or the 30948 dogs that were there) got injured..
It was still a bummer that we made this delicious dinner and then couldn’t eat it though!
Each night we played Spoons for hours and hours. Remember spoons from childhood? One less spoon than person… trying to get four of a kind? Well.. basically take that… and drink the whole time. Classic.
And then this mess happened..
They made up though…
Silly boys, games are for girls. What? That’s not how that saying goes?
There was canoodling.
There was some of this… (cough cough, Tara….)
It wasn’t all fun though. We worked hard too! There were a few fallen trees blocking access to a portion of the property. We hauled our butts up there and started choppin’ down!
All in all, we had a fantastic weekend away and a nice little break from our laundry room debacle.
The pups were exhausted on the way home!!
I know Labor Day feels like forever ago and we’re already dreaming about our next long weekend, but did you do anything fun over the holiday weekend? We typically go to WV every year. Do you guys have any Labor Day traditions too?
