Happy Labor Day!

Just popping in to say hello and wish everyone a Happy Labor Day! I hope you are enjoying a relaxing day full of barbecues, friends, family and fun!

I’m working all day today (the hospital never rests), but we enjoyed a fun weekend together!

Our kiddo experienced her first of many high school football games (she was happier than she looks):

Yes, my shirt says “Class of 2015,” don’t you think I can pass as a freshman?

It was a scorching night, in the mid to high nineties, but she was a trooper. She did so well. Give her a plastic straw and she’ll be happy for hours.

Saturday we went to the Romeo Peach Festival, another HOT evening!

Obviously my arms see a lot more sun than my legs! I look like two different people!

Sunday we spent time with her grandparents. All in all a terrific weekend.

Hope you can say the same! What did you do? Any special food cooked up this weekend?

   
When you make a recipe from my site tag it with #RachelCooks!
I love to see what you're creating!

    You guys are such a cute family! We just arrived back from vacation and had a soccer tourney on Sun. Time now to get ready for school tomorrow.

    Sounds like such a fun day! I cannot wait until my high school’s football season starts! :-)

      It is so fun! My husband is an assistant principal so I have a good excuse to go.

    My daughter has the same purple dress :) I made a pink lemonade layer cake for my sister’s birthday yesterday, as well as an orzo salad. Cinnamon roll pancakes for breakfast on Saturday, too :) I cooked and baked a lot, come to think of it! Enjoy the rest of your day!

      Sounds so delicious! Did you get the dress from Costco?

      • Melissa@IWasBornToCook — September 6th, 2011 @ 12:00 pm

        No…Carters, I think…I know Costco sometimes carries Carters, though.

    Your baby is adorable :) funny that she loves plastic straws!

    • Rachel — September 6th, 2011 @ 10:41 am

      She loves anything that isn’t a “toy.” :) Tupperware, straws, cell phones…

    Is that the Romeo Peach Festival in Michigan??? I am originally from Michigan, and grew up (for the first few years of my life) in Romeo. Can’t wait to read more :)

      Yes it is! We’ve been going for a couple of years now! Such a huge event for a small town. This year was the 80th year!

    Such a sweet picture of you and your girl! :) Glad you had such a nice weekend. I did too. It was very laid back and restful which I totally needed. Take care.

    She looks like she had a great time :)

    You could easily pass for a college freshman! High school…now that might be pushing it, given the baby :) Glad you had a fun weekend!
