Labor Day weekend

I hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend! We sure did! We were able to go up to the cabin and enjoy some time with family and friends. Then we had to head home to prepare for Liam’s first birthday party. It was a really great weekend!


I was able to get done with work a little early so as soon as I got home we finished packing and headed to the cabin. Once there Liam was able to play for a little bit before he needed his dinner.

Then it was a little more play time and then time for bed.

The rest of us had late night pizza and chatted until bed time.


Liam woke us up early enough to see the beautiful sunrise on the lake. Always a great way to start the morning.


I decided to go for a run with my brother-in-law Joel. I hadn’t run in a while so it was time to get back out there. I also knew I wouldn’t be eating very healthy all weekend so I thought I should try to “balance” it a little with some exercise. We ran between 3 and 4 miles. We weren’t sure exactly how far. I was exhausted but it felt good to run. We even had an older gentlemen along the way tell us “keep moving, you’ll live longer than most.” Great advice!

There was a planes and pancakes event at the municipal airport across from the cabin so we headed over for breakfast and to check out some of the planes and watch them land. Liam was pretty entertained but the planes. It was hard to get him to look for a picture with so much going on.

In the afternoon it was the Wisconsin Badger football game. We all got dressed in our Badger gear and watched the game. It was a really fun game to watch. And the Badgers won! On Wisconsin! Even Marley got dressed up —haha!

We tried to get a picture of the kids but it was way to challenging getting all 3 to look and smile at the same time. We did get a really great group photo though!



We went for a pre-dinner bike ride to kill some time with the little ones. It was a short trip but that bike is so much fun.


We had a rib cook off between my family, Joe’s parents, Joe’s sister’s family, and then the Hubmer’s.

The ribs were all super yummy! The unofficial vote was that Joe and I won! We have to thank my grandparents for the recipe.

We all were super full after trying all the ribs and the side dishes.

We had a fire in the evening and we decided to do 4 sky lanterns. It was cool to see all 4 go close together. Then it was off to bed.



Liam was ready to play bright and early. He just loves being outside.


We spent most of our morning packing up and getting ready to head home.

Once we got home we started cleaning and getting ready for Liam’s party on Monday. We did go out to dinner at our favorite place —Rusty’s.


The day of Liam’s birthday party. We spent the morning finishing up getting the house and food ready. I will write a separate post about the party but it was a great party and Liam was such a happy boy the whole time!

Happy Tuesday! I hope you have a wonderful week!
