our Labor Day weekend

Labor Day weekend didn't go at all as planned,. not that we had that much planned, but work definitely wasn't in the plans! I was incredibly disappointed that Eric had to go in over the weekend, but we made the best of the time we did have together! Saturday evening we decided to take Mia to the movies! Eric loves How to Train Your Dragon, so we took Mia to the sequel in the discounted movie theater. Eric's cousin that lives in town just happened to bring her kids to the same movie so it was a little party! Mia LOVED shoving her face full of popcorn and treats (a rare treat for her, and us!) while climbing all over her cousins! We had such a fun time!
A little blurry but sooooo cute!
 On Labor Day Monday, Mia and I had Eric all to ourselves, and we loved it! The fair was in town so we couldn't resist taking Mia! We stopped by the car show first... Eric was in heaven! Mia loved roaming around but was a little peeved that she couldn't touch all the shiny cars :) We went straight over to the food booths after the car show and we had to buy a bag of kettle corn popcorn... Mia is obsessed with popcorn thanks to her grandad Crowley :) Next, we headed over to the rides/games and Mia instantly wanted to ride the carousel. I made her take a picture in front of it (she's not looking at the camera because she couldn't take her eyes off the carousel, and she was crying for it, HA!) and then it was just pure torture waiting for us to buy the tickets. Mia is obsessed with the carousel thanks to her grandma and grandpa Brinkerhoff :) She's got some fun influences in her life! And luckily for her, Eric and I can't say no! Eric and Mia got to make a little tool box together, and Eric's got big plans to paint it and basically "pimp" it out for Mia, ha! We ended our fun morning by eating lunch with friends and taking a big, family nap!
Our Labor Day weekend didn't go as planned, but we made the best of it and had so much fun together!

What a fun time. I love country fairs, and Mia is at the perfect age for enjoying the excitement. I'm glad you were able to have Labor Day together as a family!

Looks like a pretty great weekend to me! I love her helping "build" at the home depot booth! So glad she had fun at the movies. I haven't braved taking Callie yet and I think we're going to wait til she can sit still for more than 5mins :) Although maybe a giant tub of popcorn would be enough to bribe her!
