love, friday: labor day edition

Sorry for the delay, my dear readers. My only excuse for not posting on time last week is that I was busy packing for one of the last camping trips of the summer*. So without further ado, I bring you love, friday: labor day edition.

Love watching Jackson play and explore at the greatest group campsite ever. Love that he was completely safe and could run around on a big field with no worries (except that small river bluff right on the edge of the campsite...)
Love prairie sunsets.
Love it when someone remembers to bring the guitar to the campfire.
Love the campfire.
Love hanging around the campfire with a sleepy boy who is fighting sleep to hear just one more song.
Love watching Jackson interact with the other kids along on this multi-family camping trip. Love that he got so into acorns and collecting them with the kids.
Love watching Dan in his element at he sets up the camp stove. Love grilled cheese outside.
Love the group camp site, love the group. A great family weekend!
Love sleeping in our tent with the rain fly off and being awakened by the bright, bright moon.
Love that the other adults loved Jackson too and helped to keep him away from that river bluff I mentioned (he's on the edge of it in this photo...).
Love silly kids about to go swimming in the sandy bottom pool.
Love evening prairie hikes with Dan + Jackson.
Love prairie grass.
Love morning prairie hikes with Dan + Jackson.
Love the prairie sky.

love, labor day weekend (welcome fall!)
* This trip went so well now that Jackson is old enough to stick around a bit, that we hope to go again before it gets too cold. Love Minnesota in the fall!

Oooh, looks like a lovely time!

Did you ever get my message about winning my long overdue contest for some of Blue Sky Alpaca's new Suri Merino yarn? I never got an address from you- unless my spam filter ate it...

We love Minnesota in the fall too (in fact, I love it best in the fall!)

Happy knitting-
