After the boys of summer have gone.

Labor weekend is traditionally the ‘end’ of summer – though we get at least another month of summer-like weather.  Having said that we have woken up this morning to torrential rain – the garden is a mud pit – so much for our pool plans today.  Hey ho, we’ve still had a fun packed weekend to say farewell to summer with a bang.

On Friday I caught up with a friend for lunch who I haven’t seen for probably eight years or so.  We used to work together, then she moved to D.C. to study law.  It was great fun to see where the years have taken us and we talked and talked as you can imagine!  I can’t wait to make it a regular lunch date.

Saturday started early.  Every year on Labor weekend the weirdest people flock to Atlanta.  I have a strange affinity for these weird folk.  They are the Dragoncon delegates.  Downtown Atlanta becomes populated by Klingons, wookiees and stormtroopers for the weekend.  Fantastic fun.

Hugh wasn’t that impressed by the early start:

Darth Vader must have heard about the Death Star – he looked a little dejected.

I didn’t get a full outfit image that day – I assure you I didn’t dress up – though I’m tempted for next year:)  I wore the same as here though – the grey Asos t-shirt dress – with my Golden Goose sneakers (similar here).

On Saturday evening we went out for a wonderful dinner with friends.  It was a long, lovely, indulgent evening with lots of great conversation.  To commemorate Labor weekend I wore all white.

These days Poppy and Hugh can’t resist getting involved in the photo taking – budding bloggers I tell you – though Hugh ain’t that impressed by his sister trying to steal the limelight:)

Last night we headed to the Braves game.  It’s such a fun thing to do with the children now they can sit through nine innings.  The music, the games, the food all take precedent over the actual baseball game – a good thing really as we lost.  Poppy is now an expert at gaining enough attention to get us on the big screen with the FanCam – twice last night!  I really need to make more of an effort for Braves games with the amount of exposure she is getting us!  We were even lucky enough to have a free post game concert with Big & Rich.  Baseball really is the best value when it comes to family entertainment – fours hours of relaxation and fun for $10 each!

So today we may have to change plans – the rain is still falling.  I fancy a good movie day curled up with my gorgeous family – sounds good to me.
