Labor-free Labor Day Weekend

We had a great Labor Day weekend. Eventful, but relaxing.As easy as playing with our toes. :-)

Saturday morning, we had good workouts, Casey on the bike and me with Zumba and weight class at the Y. Then we went to the 1st of two church picnics (celebrating ACC Dallas/Mercy Place's 10 year anniversary) and it was fun to chat and see some folks that had moved away in recent years. Then Casey & I went to the office so he could work a little (so, a little labor) and I did lesson plans (but I got to hold Sweet Pea while working on them, so it hardly counts as work.) Then we went to dinner at the Blue Goose with my parents to celebrate their anniversary.

After that, we went home and I baked cookies for Sunday's picnic. Four dozen cake-mix cookies. I love cake-mix cookies because they're insanely easy...but still tasty and homemade, which is always better. Unfortunately, only 3 dozen made it to church, as the dogs managed to pull down a tray and gobble them up while I was out of the room. Stinkers.

The church-wide picnic the next day was fun, (my cookies were the first to go!) and to top off a nice afternoon, I got a pedicure. Pretty pink toes. :-) We went to bed early. Excellent.

Monday was the best of all. The first cooler day of fall, all three of us went running at the lake. It was a great morning to run. Sweet Pea was awake and watching the whole time, but very chill. It was great to be out running again like old times. Casey ran 10 miles, and me six.
We relaxed a little outside before going to Barbec's for breakfast. biscuits. We did grocery shopping and cleaned house too, and even had time to rest and relax, and then go back out for a trip to Central Market and spend an hour at Curtis Park, sitting on the bench where Casey proposed to me more than 6 years ago. Wow, have things changed in 6 years! I can't imagine how things will be in 6 more years.
