Our Labor Day celebration was a good one. Ellie spent the night on Sunday and we enjoyed a slow start to the day. We enjoyed peanut butter bear toast for breakfast . . . she thought that was quite fun.
Both girls really enjoy time on the boat and in the water. Ellie makes a terrific first mate . . .
