Should I even title this "Labor Day" since it is a month and a half later? Maybe I should just pretend like this was just this week. :) Well, this is what we really did on Labor Day, 6 weeks ago. First, Kendall spent the entire morning spreading poison ivy all over his arms, face and neck. He helped with an Eagle Project where they were cleaning off a fence to repaint and he ended up looking like this:
He ended up going to Prompt Care the next morning to get a shot because his eyes and ears were swelling so bad. The worst part (well, besides the itching burning pain that he was in for a month) was that he couldn't donate plasma for about 3 weeks which cost us like $200. Ouch. Poor guy. It is finally all cleared up, but it took a while.
That night we went to my parents' house and Kendall was given this:
This lady randomly drove up and said "I have a truck topper that is exactly the color of that truck if you'd like it." Kendall's been looking for one for a long time so that he could take all the scout stuff in his truck and not get it all wet. Turns out that it makes a great play pen too!
Then we did some bottle rockets with Grandma and Grandpa. Even Avri pumped a little.
And all the kids got wet! (If you click on this picture and look at it bigger you can see the funny looks on their faces!)
