Laboring the Day Away (Labor Day)

We'll start in chronological order. This picture was probably taken at like 6 in the morning...Nate left at 4:45 in the morning to go hiking with some buddies. I was so happy that he got to go do something he enjoys so much. I overheard the other guys talking about the hike and calling Nate the "Energizer Bunny" as he ran ahead, ran back, ran everywhere to be able to see birds, take pictures, and enjoy the hike. He does have endless energy and will wake up at any unheard of hour if it involves hiking or birds.
We also had dinner at the park in the very hot weather. I felt like I was in a sauna. But I really enjoy spending time with friends and making the most of a day off.
Tune in tomorrow for details about Natalie's 12 month check up and Jansen's first day of preschool!

Thanks for posting the pics of the hike. I might just have to steal them from you. :) I also heard Kyle refer to Nate as the "energizer bunny." Way to go, Nate. I'm glad that they got to get out and do that hike. Kyle had a lot of fun.
