Lazy Labor Day Lobster Lounge

Labor Day weekend means many things for different people...
The end of the summer...
The beginning of fall
Back to school
One last hurrah..

For us it means spending the long weekend with hubby's family.
My sister in law and I decided four years ago after a long summer of trying to schedule some "fun" time and not being able to make schedules mesh that we needed something to mark the end of the summer...
One weekend of fun, sun, comfy clothes, drinks and lobsters.
And so, the Lazy Labor Day Lobster Lounge was born.
We rent a bounce house for the kids...
Buy a whole bunch of food...
Bring several pairs of super comfy clothes and just chill for the weekend...
This year was no different...
Giggles abound from the kids who loved the bounce house and were on a sugar high from the cotton candy...
There was lots of snuggles, lots of Auntie nic and Unkie's yelled...
We even played soccer in the bounce house...
Adults partook in some beverages..
No we did not drink it all!!
We had several camp fires...complete with roasted hot dogs...and s'mores

Lobsters...of course

And the guys even put on a couple of fireworks shows for us.

It was a lovely weekend with the family....
We did a lot of laughing...
A lot of jumping..
A lot of snuggling..
There were some tears when we had to leave...
But also, great big hugs and someone telling us that it was the best weekend ever.
I don't know how many more years we will have this one weekend that we don't let anyone else intrude upon, but it definitely will be one of the best memories I will have of the kids growing up..
Hugs and love to you all!!


  1. what a great end to the summer! my family isn't close so this would just be a dream vacation for me (lol - maybe even a nightmare!). seriously though, it sounds like such a fun time for you all.

  2. Sounds absolutely PERFECT. And I can guarantee the kids will remember these weekends for a long, long time as some of the best they ever had. Definitely a memory they will share long into adulthood with a smile of their face. :D

    I am so glad you had a fabulous time. Hugs to y'all! xoxo

  3. Sounds just wonderful. Families need more of these sort of get togethers.

  4. What a lovely happy post Col. It's always good to see you here. What a brilliant idea to end the summer by having weekends like this. Happy memories to carry you through until the next one! Hope you and hubby are both keeping well. Hugs.

  5. OMG lobster. I wish I lived in the northeast just for that one reason. I don't eat lobster enough. ;)
