Not Laboring

I spent Labor Day Weekend having a grand ol' time. I spent Saturday doing errands and sitting outside and reading. On Sunday, I went to my sister's for a BBQ at her and her husband's new house. Family and friends were gathered together to enjoy good food (all delicious: Texas caviar, dry rub ribs, pulled pork, potato salad, cole slaw, apple cobbler, and chocolate mousse) and good conversation. The Wii was pulled out for entertainment and we all had a good laugh when Krissy was playing with the controller upside-down. The funniest part was how hard Krissy was laughing. I also went out and played on the playground with Max, Jenn, and Strider. It had all kinds of fun climbing equipment. It would be fun to have an adult version of that.
On Monday, I went hiking with my friends, Stacey and JR. We went up to Blue Lake, in the Indian Peaks area (same area I went to the weekend before). JR gets credit for all the following photos:

We stopped in Boulder for a bite to eat and then on the way back, a friend called to find out if I still wanted to go for a bike (motorcycle) ride. I stopped at the house, changed clothes and went right back out again. We drove from Lakewood up Bear Creek Road to Evergreen, stopped at the Little Bear Tavern and then rode back down again. The ride was my first on curvy mountain roads and it was a lot of fun. A wee bit scary, because visibility around curves was difficult, but traffic was slower than I thought it would be, so I had plenty of time to react.
All in all it was a very fun weekend!
