Happy Labor Day 2013

Happy Labor Day to all!
Most people have today off work to celebrate the strife of historical workers.
To those of you who do have to work, we appreciate your time and effort! Especially all those workers who run the businesses we frequent on a day off. Restaurants. Shopping. Etc.

Today I brushed my teeth. That is about as much effort as I am putting in to it.
Hubby, the girl, and I decided we needed a truly lazy day.
We have some movies we got for Christmas that have not even come out of the plastic wrap, those are big on our list!

Yesterday, we went to the yearly Labor Day cookout at Hubby's aunt and uncle's house. This has been a family tradition since well before I was in the picture.

It was a good sized crew of us: Aunt and Uncle, their 2 grown kids (with spouses) and the 2 grand kids. Hubby's mom and another aunt. A cousin. His 2 sisters, 1 niece, and 1 brother in law.
Some of (host) aunt's daughter-in-law's family as well (did I confuse anyone?).

It was a freaking rainy, gray, thundery, BLAH day.
We all got soaked just trying to get to said cook out. :::sigh:::

Not too long after everyone arrived, the sun started peeking!
The grass was too wet still for our annual croquet tournament or any full contact badminton...but the driveway dried up enough that the littles could go outside and blow off some steam.

The girl child and a couple of the men folk had a cut throat game of H-O-R-S-E going on.

Due to the rain earlier, the mosquitoes were out in full force and the air was oppressively muggy.
But we got to be outside...yay!

As we do every year, there was more food than we could possibly eat.
I brought along with us

Deviled Eggs
Baked Potato Salad
Dirty Salsa
Cookie Dough Dip

I hope everyone celebrated Labor Day in your own, special way!
