Labor Day Weekend

Labor Day weekend always feels like the last chance for a summer weekend. We tried to pack as many last minute summer activities in as we could. 

Saturday morning, Jared played football so the boys and I went to get some donuts. 
When the boys woke up from their naps, we ran some errands including a stop at our favorite place, Trader Joe's. 

On Sunday, we woke up and headed to the beach. 
This time we went to Topsail Island based solely on the fact that it had public showers. 
The boys love the beach and we are trying to take full advantage of the fact that we're only 3 hours away. 
It was neat to see Porter walking around this time. He played in the water off and on but his favorite part was just cruising around. Walking up to people and then walking back to us, picking up shells and throwing them, picking up handfuls of sand and throwing it....
We got a beach tent this time which was nice for the 3 minutes they sat still for a snack break. 
After we left the beach, we went to eat at Island Delights. They had ice cream too and we were all jealous of Porter's banana pudding ice cream...except Paxton who was perfectly happy with his "pink with sprinkles". 
On Monday, we had our friends over for a Labor Day cookout. The kids played in the pool and had a blast together.
