i've mentioned numerous times that my favorite end of summer tradition is visiting our local italian festival over labor day weekend. it's especially important to us since it's where we went on our very first date back in 2004.
we had to navigate the festival a bit differently this year since we had little man in tow and we didn’t want him out and about in the large crowds because he’s so little. we headed down to the italian festival on friday afternoon to grab some dinner and soak in the festivities. we had to pass on the fireworks this year, but hopefully we’ll be able to catch them next year when noah is a bit older.
we celebrated labor day with our families at ryan's parents' house on saturday for a cookout. it was a nice quiet day inside with family.
on sunday, we spent the day at my parents' house and then headed back down to the italian festival for dinner with ryan's parents.
we finished off the long three-day weekend by spending all of monday at home catching up on chores and resting since it was pouring rain outside all day.
overall, it was a nice labor day holiday weekend!
