Anyway, on to Labor Day.
I woke up at 5 a.m. Labor Day to a loud rain storm. But then around 8 a.m. it looked clear. I was hopeful. Then dark clouds started moving in and we got heavy rain. Hunter was suppose to meet us at the bay as well as a neighbor family. They both had food for today, and we'd bought meat to grill. We decided if it didn't clear, we'd cook it inside on the panini press and play some Wii.
Around 11:00 we had blue skies, but rain. It slowed down and we decided to chance it. I'd already paid the $20 for the pavilion, so I hoped we could at least grill there. It was sprinkling when we arrived, but Jessica and Hunter got the coals going, and we unloaded the boats. The rain stopped. I rented a paddle board so the kids would have that and the kayaks to keep them busy.

We took the jet ski out and pulled anyone on the tube who wanted to go. Hunter didn't have his little cousins and mom with him this time. We did have James (neighbor) who just turned 18 and leaves for the Marines September 16. Adam will still be there, but I don't know if they will ever be together. Adam will be counting down to graduation. Tyler leaves before James, so it's probably the last time these two will be with us for a while.
I am really going to miss having him around every day! He has minor anger control issues, but he's never been any trouble. I just have to tell him to knock off the yelling or go to his room to calm down.

And that was our Labor Day.
