-K and I decided to head to the aunt and uncle's house a street over from us to have a little bbq. We invited D&F to come play, as well. We brought a bunch of delicious foods and devoured a good bit of it and afterwards we all played in the pool for some night time swimming until about 10 p.m.
-Franzi and I met up for a grueling game of racquetball and we did some pool aerobics too.

-I had several of Merci's awesome deviled eggs. I lovers them! I had a veggie dog which was kind of weird but not bad and also a very tasty vegetarian potato salad.

-Tracy's pina colada was divine.
-We went over to Merci and Tracy's for a Labor Day Party which was turning into a Hurricane Gustav party. Hurricanes to drink were readily available per request to the bartender. It was fun to hang out with good friends before having to face the music today of going back to the grind.
