All Fun, this Labor Day Weekend

This weekend was great one! It was a long weekend due to Labor Day. Everyday was so fun! We really took advantage of having s20160902_142036ome time off work and just enjoying life!

On Friday Jason had to run some errands. So we made a day of it and went to Castle Rock. We went to a f20160902_150253ew shops and then to the Outlet Mall. The kids loved throwing pennies in the water fountain. They were excited to visit the candy shop and get a little treat. What a nice day to be outside. It was so fun doing something as a family.

On the way home we called Jason’s brother Jeremy. We invited to the mall a little closer to home. We spent the evening window shopping there after dinner in the food quart. Yum! The highlight was the pet shop, of course! Aimlee found a little kitten. It was so cute. The kitty kept licking our fingers.

Saturday morning I had to work, but Jason went on a Motorcycle ride. We had a family birthday party to go to on Saturda20160906_173337y afternoon. The rest of the day was spent with Jason’s family. Evan took a late nap and was awake until past Midnight in his crib. He was just talking and playing. The kids had a good day.

Sunday was such fun day for me. In the morning we picked the peaches off our peach tree. I got to go to Elitches in the afternoon with a few cousins and my friend/BIL  Jeremy. Most of us had rain tickets, so were able to get in for free. We had a little bit of a slow start, but it was a BLAST! We decide to do the water park since it would be the20160904_173853 last time of the season. Then met up with a few more cousins and rode some fun rides.  It was packed from the holiday and the rides were so long, so we did not get to ride as many rides as we would have liked, but it was really fun!  I wish I could go to an Amusement Park everyday of my life! I love it so much!

Sunday evening we went down to the Taste of Colorado.  Two of my favorite buddies let me tag along. It was so exciting. We got to see Blues Traveler. It was a great show- wish we could have gotten closer to the stage.  The music was outstanding!  We a20160904_204619_1473049393638-1lso got to get some yummy food. I love being at yearly Festivals- the music, the food, the atmosphere… everything. I can’t believe that two of the things I love to do, but rarely get to- were on the same day. I was so thankful that Jason was willing to watch the kids so I could go have fun! He doesn’t care for crowds, rides or concerts- so it worked out ok.

Monday, was a productive one- in the morning. Got the lawn mowed, weeds pulled, groceries bought an20160905_174159d started to prep for the week. Monday evening I went to the Taste of Colorado with a couple of Family and Friends- so nice having a big family! We got to see the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band. What an AMAZING show. It was really one of the best shows I’ve ever been to. It was a true Blues/Rock music lover’s dream. Kenny Wayne Shepherd has such an awesome gift. It was incredible to watch and hear him play. We got to see the show so close I could see his fingers moving up and down the guitar- true talent. Finished the night with ice cream.  So thankful my hubby let me have two fun nights in a row!

So now, it is back to normalcy. At least it will be a short week. Aimlee is very excited to start Preschool tomorrow  (at home)!
