Labor Day Weekend

I'm a little behind with our holiday post but thought I would try to get it finished before I forgot what we actually did. We debated on whether or not we should leave town for the long weekend but in the end we decided to stay put. It's nice to take advantage of an extra day off when traveling but at the same time it's nice to stay put. It was especially nice not to have to worry with traffic!

On Saturday we took Carter to his last music class. He had a great time and received his first diploma. Labor Day weekend is the last weekend our neighborhood pool is open so we decided to take advantage of the gorgeous day and take one last dip in the pool. Carter really enjoyed the water this summer as long as it wasn't too cold. He wasn't a fan of the baby pool at all. I guess it's because he isn't walking so he can't really play that well in the water. He prefers to lounge around in his shaded float, ha. Who wouldn't?
Bye-bye pool!
Saturday afternoon Neil, one of our good friends from our Team Hayes days, came over to join us for football and a cookout. It was nice to catch up with him and enjoy the beginning of the college football season.
Hooray for college football!
On Sunday we packed up and headed to Shady Side, MD. One of Chris's co-workers lives in an adorable house right on the water so we went up for the afternoon to eat crabs, soak in a little sun and enjoy the water! It was a beautiful day and we had great company. We even had an opportunity to take Carter on his first boat ride and he absolutely loved it.
Carter loved riding on Gordon's John Deere tractor.
How stinkin' cute is Carter in his life vest?!

On Monday we decided to take Carter to Chick-fil-A for lunch and then to an indoor soft playground. Unfortunately all of the Chick-fil-A's up here are inside shopping or strip malls. It is so frustrating! I don't know why we don't have a free standing one but if you're looking to make a killing up here I think that would be the way to do it. The closest one to us also has an indoor soft playground and we thought it would be the perfect place to let Carter go! Since he isn't walking it's hard for him to crawl around at the outdoor playgrounds because of the bark and/or sand so this was the perfect place for him. I think he was mesmerized by all the little children running around more than anything else. They also have a little train that runs around the mall so we took our first train ride too. A fun weekend of firsts.
And he's off....

I hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend. Let the count down to fall officially begin.
