Labor Day Weekend Funness

I love 3 day weekends. I honestly feel that our work weeks should be cut in order to have a 3 day weekend every week.

On Saturday, Ben and I spent the morning running errands, cleaning up the house, playing with Jack, etc. Then, we went to dinner at Jake and Telly's. Yum! We had a Greek feast complete with some sort of flaming cheese, yummy wine, crab cakes, and a sampler plate with all kinds of deliciousness...except the olives (yuck.).



After dinner we headed down to Memorial Park for the Balloon Glo. We (okay I, Melissa) were a little bummed because we tried to invite other couples to join us. Here's the tally: Invited 14 people, 6 said they were in, and 0 actually came with us. Tangent alert! Why is it so hard to make friends here?? In Boulder, I had a bunch of really good girlfriends. Here, it's been surprisingly difficult. I know, I know, it takes time to make friends. But sometimes I feel like I'm making lots of effort only to be left feeling sad and rejected. Perhaps I should not post the creepy wine picture of me (above) in the event that a potential new friend sees this.

Okay. Now that that's off my chest, I'll get back on track.
I loved, loved, loved the Balloon Glo!! I kept thanking Ben for taking me there. For me, it was better than the 4th of July fireworks. Loved it. And now, pictures!


Oh! We also took a few family pictures...


Sunday was pretty laid back...slept in, went to church, played with Jack, ran some errands...

We spent Labor Day afternoon/evening with family and friends: Jim, Debbie, Em and the kiddos, Jonathan and Jen, and Val, Michael and Craig. We all met up at the driving range to practice our skillz. Then, went to Jim and Debbie's house for dinner. It's always a blast hanging out with the family!
