Labor Day

This Labor Day weekend we found ourselves on the beautiful beaches of North Carolina. Warm ocean water, good friends, hours of card games, chasing crabs during dark, boarding, Mike's Farm all you can eat home cooking, a beautiful house right on the beach...
ok, not really.
That was our Labor Day tradition during dental school (3 yrs. in a row), and one of the many things I miss about living in the East.
Back to the present. This Labor Day guess where we went...any guesses?? The mountains (surprise!). Sarcasm aside. We went camping and took a guest. Grandma came to town which made Ry love camping even more.
It was chilly at night but we all managed to stay bundled and warm. We also went on an unplanned 3.5 hr. hike basically sans water, food, and Ry's carrier. The little water we had lasted the first hour, which is about how long we expected to go. By the end I felt a bit delirious, and Ry cried that night because her "legs really hurt".
It was fun, and of course the food was delicious as always. The next time we vacate the city though please let there be an ocean (and all you can eat home made macaroni..eh Pittsburghers?).








Look at this mug. I tried to keep her clean for about a min. and then let nature take its course.

Like Christen, I thought you went back to NC too, and was going to be really sad you didn't tell us! I was just thinking about it the other day really wanting to go again!
