Labor Day Weekend Recap:
Friday
Musical Practice went well.
After practice I met up with Lisa's family at Katrina's apartment. Lisa's Grandparents (Brail) were in town from Hastings, Michigan. We played Catan, which has quickly become a favorite boardgame in the family. Personally, I think it may be the best boardgame I have ever played.

Saturday
Lisa's Grandparents (Brail) were in town from Hastings, Michigan. We met up at Bob and Deb's house with the rest of the family and made a morning trip to the Danile Boone home in New Melle. The weather was perfect for such an outing, not very warm with a slight breeze. After the touring the historic home, we went to a Garden/Nusery/Deli for lunch. It was nice to relax outdoors with good food and good company.
Upon arriving back at home base, we played 2 games of Catan. Lisa and I headed home around 4pm to see about meeting up with her friend Kristen, who was in town from Nashville for the weekend. Plans were made for a Monday morning rendezvous, so we went to Blockbuster and rented "Finding Neverland" and had a movie night at home.

Sunday
Sunday morning after Sunday School we met up with her family prior to going into the auditorium for the church service. Dr. McAlpin preached another great sermon about Jonah, which was the fifth sermon in this series. After the service, we came back to our place for lunch out on the deck (in the shade). We played some more Catan and had an enjoyable evening.

Monday
Monday morning everyone met up at our house and we made our way down to Main Street St Charles to walk around and poke in and out of the shops. Shortly after noon, Lisa and I drove over to the Highland View family picnic and spent some time with my family eating and playing softball, egg toss and baloon pop relays. I'm proud to say that the dynamic duo of Lisa and Christina (my youngest sister) won the second balloon popping race! We then went back to Katrina's for some more time with Lisa's grandparents, where we played (you guessed it) Catan.

It was quite the busy weekend...
