Labor Day weekend

It's Labor Day weekend... time to get outside and have some fun!

This morning, we went to a little lake near our house. They have paddle boats, rope swings and slides into the lake, a swimming pool with a 2-story waterslide, a splash pad for the little ones and a lazy river.

Little Sweets surprised us by wanting to go down the big waterslide over and over again. She's usually very cautious but she loved the ride on our laps! I lounged a bit by the pool while my Sweets took Little Sweets in the pool. See them there by the yellow slide?

Since the lake and the pools were a bit retro (that's the nice way of putting it!), I decided to put some retro flair to our photos using the Instagram app. So fun and I think it's another thing I'm going to soon become obsessed with.

What are you doing this weekend?


  1. Looks like you know how to have fun! I haven't been to a water park since my kids were little and they're in their 20's now.

    I'm off to check out that photo app you're sharing with us.

  2. Aww, fun. I'm not really doing anything special this weekend, just working on some illustrations.

  3. yay for fun. our plans got cancelled because it was supposed to rain (we where going to Amish country) next time!

  4. That looks like my kind of weekend. And who doesn't love the waterslide!

  5. Popping by via insta-friday - that water slide looks SUPER fun! I'm totally impressed your Little was so brave! Right on :)

  6. Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.
