A Fun Labor Day Weekend

We had such a fun Labor day weekend up at our good friend the Lifferths property. We went up to their campsite and did all sorts of fun things. Dave swung on a rope swing into a lake, Jackson and I went on a paddle on the lake, we had wonderful food like yummy brats, smores, homemade doughnuts, sausage burritos, homemade bread and chicken parmesan that I made, chocolate pudding cake and pineapple cake both made in a dutch oven, potato salad, potato casseroles, fresh corn on the cob, etc. You get the point, good food! Dave said he was in heaven. It was fun being up there with some of our good friends we have out here.
We had such a blast up there to enjoy the great out doors even though it is pretty humid out here in Indiana.

Jackson loved driving the tractor, of course with the help of his daddy.

We had a classic Watermelon roll down the hill. It's a tradition of the Lifferths.

The kids had so much fun playing with a little frog that we found. They would keep saying "Ribit" and "Hop, Hop!" Here's Jacksons little friend Kenzie holding the froggie, Jackson was good and touched it. He gets it from his mommie.

A whip cream got started by one of the kids and it just got all over the place.

The kids started a whip cream eating contest and so Jackson and Kenzie wanted to get involved to of course. They ended up not going at it and at the end all they said they wanted was a spoon, so polite.

Jackson loved watching the other kids dig into their whip cream.

Jackson really liked drinking the punch out of the cooler. He ended up just helping himself to it. The younger kids just loved getting cup after cup and pushing the button on the cooler to get more and more punch. They were all happy kids though!

The kids had a lot of fun riding in the trailor that was connected to a little tractor. Jackson just loved it and kept asking to go on a ride.

All of us camping in the great outdoors.

Jackson of course loved the homemade powdered donuts we had on Saturday morning as you can see he got it all over the face.

It was so cute to watch Jackson play with all the kids there. Jackson has really broken out of his shell, and has started to play a lot more with kids and hasn't been as shy as he use to be around others, which is great.

Hey Am! What cute pics! You should check your camera though, it looks you may have a smudge print or dust on the lens. We had that once and the pictures looked a little "white" and "fuzzy". Check it out. How are you feeling? Your blog is so cute and I love your updates. Take care!

hey am! cute pics! i love the one of jackson drinking the punch through the cooler lol. thank you so much for your advice on nursery! i really appreciate it! whats funny is he isn't clingy while he plays it seems like he doesn't even notice me but 10 seconds after i leave he is crying. so after i leave he starts crying obviously and i don't even make it to class. i just stand outside the door and wait like 3 minutes and then go back in. should i wait longer or just go to class? so how is the pregnancy going? what is ur due date again?
