Labor Day

Every labor day Skyler's Dads side of the family gets together at Skyler's Grandmas cabin in Pine Valley. It was a little drizzly, but the weather was nice and cool! The days festivities included a blow up slide, a rock climbing wall, a real fishing pond, a prize fishing pond, a water gun fight and a catered lunch with Veyo Pies for dessert! It's always a ton of fun, but this year definitely had a different feeling with Rick not being there! He has always been the life of the party and he was truly missed!

Nate was so excited to fish when we got there, but then Kaden caught one and he saw the fish flopping on the ground and he changed his mind real quick! He didn't want anything to do with the fish after that!

Nate wanted to climb the rock wall and wanted to do it over and over again. Every time he did it he climbed a little higher and then the last time. He loved swinging and hanging on the cable!

Then it was dads turn
Nate cheered him on
And he made it to the top!
Skyler's brother Blake challenged his mom and she proved to him that she could climb to the top!
Grandma and Bailey
The prize fishing pond! Nate got a kaleidoscope and a boomerang frisbee!
Once it had stopped raining the kids played on the bounce slide!
Skyler and Tyler wanted to join in on the fun!
Then it was game time! They played a water gun game. Everyone pinned a postcard with an Alka-Seltzer on it to their back and everyone tried to squirt everyone else's. Whoever had the most of their Alka-Seltzer still left at the end of the game won money!

Nate kept squirting skyler when he was trying to refill his water gun! It was so funny!

The kids had fun and were zonked out the second we headed home!
