Labor Day Weekend

So this past weekend was Labor Day weekend and Nathan had 4 days off!!! So me being Nathan's social calendar I packed those 4 days with some great things. Our friend Jennifer (whom is married to Denny and plays a mean guitar in the AF Band) told us about a Sunflower Field. So we went on Thursday and it was AMAZING!!!!! Of course I brought my camera and got some really great shots.

My favorite picture of the day actually came from when Nathan took over. It is usually me behind the camera because I feel more comfortable there and love to play around with the Nikon D60. So here is my favorite picture of the day...and no it is not because it's of me LOL.

That night I had a much needed Girls Night Out - which really was night in since I had everyone over. Gabe was a trooper and flirted till his bedtime. Nathan and Brandon went to the Bengals vs. Colts game down in Cincy. For those of you who don't know for pro-football Nathan is a Colts fan. He even shushes me when Manning comes on the Direct Tv commercials!! RUDE - hahaha

Then Friday we were treated to an authenitc Indian dinner at Sabby, Lina, and Elena (their daughter) house. We had Beef Curry, some kind of bread (yummo!!!), a chick pea dish -that I actually liked, and long grain rice. It was so fantasically good and I can't wait till they decide to invite us over again! Sabby (Sebastian for full name) is orginally from India and I have much to learn!

Saturday was ANOTHER great day! We spent the whole day with Brandon and Shelly. They took us to a Indian Restuarant and it was good. I really like that I have found some place to eat Indian food because I don't think Lina and Sabby would appreciate me knocking on their door everytime I have a craving ;)

After lunch we took Brandon to DLM (Dorothy Lane Market) and boy did I spend some money. I just love this store and will come up with items that I "must" have just to go to DLM. We also found out that the best day to go to DLM is on Saturday because of the FREE samples!! Nate said that grandpa Bradley would love it and when (hint hint) they come, we will take grandpa.

That night we BBQ and then watched the new Halloween movie. It was okay but I totally prefer the original Halloween movies. Probably because I have so many memories of my brother and all his buddies staying the night Friday nights and all they wanted to watch was Halloween!

Finally we made it to Sunday. A day of rest, FOOTBALL, and the ICU BBQ. It was nice to catch up with the ICU people who could make it because Nathan has been working down in the ER and I have been out of the loop. Babies were born, marriages took place, and some returned safe and sound from deployment.

All in was a wonderful Labor Day weekend. It sure was better than last year! Last year we had been in Ohio for a month. Nathan was working, I was pregnant, and Bailee....who knows LOL. All we needed this year was some family but here in Ohio...we are making our Military Family and what a great family they ALL are turning out!!

This was also the weekend for kickoff of College Football BABY!!!! MSU won and I think Gabe just might be their good luck charm....of course, their new coach might have something to do with the win as well.

Stairway to Heaven - Or at least to the upstairs of our house.

So our Little Monkey has finally found the stairs. He has always been content in watching either Nathan or I walking up and down the stairs but I guess this was the day he wanted to try for himself. He is almost 9 months old and is truly a mover and a shaker. He has mastered crawling (hands and knees) but he still prefers the "army" crawl - he actually moves around quicker with the "army" crawl.

As you watch the video please excuse the wobbles and blurs. It was just a couple of weeks ago that a light bulb went off in my head and I realized that both my Nikon and Sony cameras have video capability! So I have been using my Sony as the video recorder and my Nikon for pictures.

Now I am off to go to bed with tomorrow being another adventure waiting to begin with Gabe!!
