Labor Day Weekend

We were lucky to have company for the long Labor Day weekend!  Pops, Nana and Anna helped us labor away at the Oasis.
We labored hard in the pool.

The kids and the boys labored hard on the trampoline.  Max installed the hose with a mister to help keep them cool.
Max and Pops did labor hard up the mountain, but this was self inflicted labor.  They chose to ride twice, so it must not have been too bad.

We went to the mall so Hank could ride the train.  He even wore his conductor's outfit for the big outing.  This was a very laborious time for the males involved.  There was lots of shopping at Claire's and Justice that they had to endure.  A true labor for any man even at the tender age of 3.


But mostly we labored away at eating.  It was such a chore.

 The best rack of ribs this side of the Mississippi.  Yep, I think Max is ready for a Bobby Flay throw down!

That ganache was SO good I had to make it again.  Immediately.  This time garnished with raspberries and bananas dipped in the left over that I didn't eat while making it.  I am already day dreaming about round III.


We had such a nice time laboring away.  I only hope we didn't work our guest too hard and they will come back soon!

Glad you all had a fun weekend and family to celebrate with! Love Max's expression in the train-seriously?! And that granache is to die for. I don't think I should make it because I would be devouring it solo. ;)
