Labor Day Weekend

Hope you all had a fantastic Labor Day Weekend! We really enjoyed getting a little break from the chaos. A long weekend was just what we needed!

On Saturday, we went to Tour de Fat, a bicycle "race" that New Belgium brewery puts on every summer. Everyone dresses up in crazy costumes and rides around town on their bicycles. Spotted this year: a Chinese dragon, the Flinstones, a family of unicorns, and several grown men wearing nothing but diapers. We live in a strange town. 

M and I didn't participate in Tour de Fat this year. We just sat on the sidelines and watched with Sadie and Georgia.

Yesterday, we went to a cookout where we ate tons of ribs! It was glorious. 

Also, my mom finished her hike on the Appalachian Trail this weekend. She and my dad are still up in Maine, celebrating. I am so proud of her for pursuing her dream! So much of the time, I feel like I am too afraid to pursue what I really want. It takes a lot of courage to do that, and I hope I got some of those genes from her. We'll see...

P.S. M is having {very!} minor surgery today, but your prayers would still be appreciated! Thanks!
