Each person should judge his own actions and not compare himself with others. Then he can be proud for what he himself has done. Galatians 6:4

Happy Labor Day!!

This labor day I purposely did not plan anything! I have magazine and books that still need to read.. and I wanted to take this weekend to clean the home and lay on the swing and read! And that's what I did ( minus a bit of yardsaling)....

I thought since I wouldn't have much to share about our "exciting" weekend... I thought I would share a couple pictures of our adventure a few weekends ago...
We went to... Weirs Beach at Lake Winnepesaukee ...When I was a kid.. maybe up to the age of 12 we went here to vacation for a week... my father was a Vietnam Vet so they got to rent cabins for a discounted price. I tell you.. those cabins were NOTHING special.. but for the one week out of the year each of us kids got our own separate rooms.. BATS and all... as a kid that didn't bother me..
So I was kind of excited to go back and check it out and show my son where I vacationed once a week.. and how I got ONE roll of quarters to spend that whole week and nothing more.. ( I felt rich.. trust me!!)...

I always wanted to ride this BOAT...

The Mount Washington.. But even when we were small it was considered a boat for the "rich".. only the "rich" could ride on it and dine.. We had just pulled up to the "boardwalk" and it was headed out... I jumped right out and took a few shots.. because I knew it wouldn't come back for the time we were going to be there... Unfortunately due to the floodings in NH the railroad had been washed out.. so I couldn't' get any closer without taking off on my family.. not a good idea on a family outing..

Not long after the MT. Washington left... the one boat I DID get to ride on when I was a kid came in...

The Mail boat.. Sophie... as you can see.. it's quite a crowded ride.. and when I was younger it wasn't so crowded.. and it DID deliver the mail to the little Islands.. I just thought that was the coolest. Now me and boats.. UGH.. we don't mix.. for some strange adult reason.. I have a huge fear of water...My husband and my kids think I can't swim.. little do they know... I use to swing off the "tarzan" rope in the brook by my house.. I use to jump off party boats with my friends and swim around.... and more.. but now.. forget it...

This is my son... and check out the "video game" he is playing.. it's basketball.. the people are METAL... and this game cost .10cents to play.. it's original price .5 cents... Out of all the video games that he could have played.. he played this one.. it was an absolute RIOT!! we all stood around watching this old thing "click".. and what was more amazing.. is that it worked!!

Ok.. see this.. I know you are ALL familiar with this... the shooting gallery.. and as you can see.. a boy is off to the corner shooting things... he was having a GREAT time.. UNTIL..his mother... ( who shall remain nameless..... ).. decided to take a picture.. this unnamed mother did NOT see the sign that said.. "NO FLASH PICTURES".. and after a complete second .. EVERYTHING went off and crazy.... that poor boy was frightened and started crying.... I tell you.. some mom's just don't deserve mother of the year... ( But it was quite funny).. OOPSS!!

There is a picture of me somewhere.. sitting on top of this same Cannon .. off course I was wearing bellbottoms and a butterfly collar... I'm sure of it...But here's my "up to something" son... acting cool ( coughcough).. He put his orange Crush Soda in the hole .... I tell ya... Someday I'm going to find the picture of me.. and I'll post it.. YUP.. I will.. little ole picture of me!!

Well.. after our unnecessary fright.. we decided to head down towards the beach and eat lunch.. You couldn't swim in the water because of high bacteria content.. ( I think it's been that way every time I've gone)...but we watched the boats go in and out of the lake... it was like a parade... I took this photo so you could see the awesome mountains!! ( that will be turning colors in a few weeks.. can you BELIEVE THAT!!!)

While we were eating.. we had guests... uninvited guests I might add... and they were NOT shy... after awhile they really creepy to me.. I like wildlife.. but not when they start trying to peck your behind for FOOD!! so when one came..
.
They ALL CAME!!! and as you can see.. they were NOT scared!! It's unfortunate for them.. that we only had fruits and veggies with us... no breadish food... UNTIL I peeked in my camera bag and found a old bag of cheezits... Then they were fighting one another!! Creepy little things!!

So what ever you're doing this Labor Day.. I hope you're having fun.. and chilling and relaxing!!

Great pics. I would love to go to the beach. But those rude little beggars, I never feed them, because if you do, they still won't leave.

Isn't that so sad about the rail road track:( I've been on the Mt. Washington a few times. It's nice, but nothing spectacular!! The food was nasty and the booze was pricey...LOL! Soooo....you are not missing much:) Those ducks are probably what caused the bacteria. YUCKERS!!Glad you guys had such a nice time.

Carrie said...

It looks like you had a really nice weekend! Love all the pics.

Susanne said...

Great pics. And it's funny I was just thinking I have never seen a pic of you!

That boat looks fun. There is one that goes on a lake that we always went to every summer and we didn't ever ride it for that very same reason. I wonder how much it would cost to ride that thing now.
