Labor Day Weekend 2008This past weekend we spent a great time together. Family all arrived Friday evening just in time to enjoy a yummy home cooked meal. I really enjoy all the times we can all sit around the table together. Saturday morning we took off for a fun filled day at Sunset Beach. Alyssa, Josh, Margie and me all went boogie boarding for the first time. We had so much fun! Yes, I did get in the ocean believe it or not! After lunch we all got back in while Margie and Timothy enjoyed flying the kite. That evening after a grabbing dinner on the way home at Chick-Fil-A (Margie's favorite) we spent the evening talking and having fun together. "Uncle" Adam even joined the fun! The kids enjoyed hearing stories of his travels in Korea and Mongolia this summer. Sunday tired as we were we all made it to church (filled up a whole row!). After lunch we were off to visit Forest Lawn in Glendale. It had been years since the last time I was there. It was a beautiful day to be outdoors and the view and art pieces and gardens were very beautiful. All of us enjoyed the time there. Soon it was dinner time again so we drove into LA and ate at the Colombian restaurant, La Fonda Antioquena. Yum, yum!! After that delicious dinner we drove to the Griffith Park Observatory just in time to catch the sunset. Then we stood in line to look into the telescope and see Jupiter and all it's moons. It was a long wait but very interesting. The kids were so tired the all fell asleep on the drive home. I'm tired but what a great weekend! We all took lots of pictures you can see by clicking here.
