Labor Day Weekend

It's Labor Day weekend, and that means another Birthday party at the Hertle's home. This has been one of those mile posts, in my mind at least, for the modern day Gates Family. The weather has been beautiful year in and year out for this party, the food is always good, the cake is always a winner, Scott and Jenn (Jenny for those in the Gates Family) are always fantastic hosts. The only difference is that each year we're all a year older. (Click here for last year's post following Lauren & Logan's party.)

Lincoln enjoyed his time with Uncle Jeremy last year, and this year was no different. He's also been having lots of fun with his "Pa."

The Beating

The Scrum

We finished our Sunday by going to Bugs Bunny at Blossom with Emily and Jeremy. Jenn and I have been to many concerts at Blossom. Some have been sparsely attended but usually the Independence Day celebrations are heavily attended. Last night was thoroughly packed. It was unbelievable. It was also really, really funny. The selected some great Bugs Bunny cartoons along with Daffy & Porky. New this year were Tom & Jerry, and this particular show was the world premier for that portion of the show. The conductor said that the official premier was going to be at the Sydney Opera House in the spring of 2010.

Here is one of the pictures they showed while the Blossom Festival Band played the score:

We had lots of laughs, and heard some great music.

(Holy cow! I appeared in two pictures in the same post. You can now count on another 4 dozen posts without photos of me.)
