Carole, those all sound wonderful. I'm throwing a birthday party for my son, niece, MIL & FIL over the weekend -- maybe I could incorporate some of your suggestions. Like the water balloon fight. ;)

L. Diane Wolfe said...

I'll propose the water balloon fight to my husband and see what he says!

Laura Eno said...

The official end of summer (please tell that to the bugs!)
Have a great weekend and relax. :)

Linda Kage said...

Hope you have a happy Labor Day!!

Shirley Wells said...

It all sounds wonderful. Happy Labor Day!

I have not been to the planetarium for years. You reminded me of its existence, and now I think I'll have to go! Happy Friday!

irishoma said...

Sounds like fun!
Combining two things on the list into juggling pizzas would be entertaining!

LR said...

Yeah I haven't been to a planetarium for ages either. Good idea!

Summer Ross said...

Oh come on :) both at the same time would be super fun! Great list.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Pizza and movies! Oh, and I already know how to juggle.

Karen Walker said...

How fun are these - we always celebrate Labor Day at a friend's house with a pool. There is pool volleyball, lots of wine, sometimes singing and sometimes dancing around the pool. Happy Labor Day, Carol.

Jo said...

Sounds fun. We in Africa don't have a Labor Day! Have a great weekend. Jo

Carol Kilgore said...

Linda G - Perfect setting for a water balloon fight!

Diane - Go for it!

Laura - As hot as it's been, and still is, I still hate to see summer end.

Linda K - Same to you, Linda :)

Shirley - Time to relax.

Julie - Enjoy those stars.

Donna - LOL! Give it a go :)

LR - Ours isn't open all the time. I wish it were.

Summer - Try it!

Alex - You're all set for a few days.

Karen - Wine? I'm in!

Jo - We'll let you celebrate and chill with us :)

BECKY said...

Carol, since the weather forecast is probably ANOTHER 100+ degree day here, I'll stick with...staying home and writing, blogging, napping, etc.etc.! :)

Elspeth Antonelli said...

A Labour Day with no labour - what a marvelous idea. I'll be spending the weekend making sure assorted teenagers are ready for school's first day on Tuesday and fighting with my neglected garden.

Lydia K said...

Agree with #1--wet feathers are NOT fun to clean up, LOL!

Mason Canyon said...

Great list. I'd go with #7. Hope you have a wonderful holiday.

I can give the juggling lessons! I'm glad you included that one. Maybe I should practice juggling this weekend.

Happy Labor Day!

Jayne said...

Right now, anything to do with floating or a hammock sounds perfect to me. ;)

Happy (non)Labor Day!

Carol Kilgore said...

Becky - Nothing but 100+ days in our forecast here, too. Sigh.

Elspeth - You'll do enough labor for all of us lounging under the Tiki Hut - LOL!

Lydia - Exactly!

Mason - Ahhhh :)

Brenda - Thanks. Same to you!

Arlee - I'm totally uncoordinated. I'd probably break an arm.

Carol Kilgore said...

Jayne - We crossed. That's it. Monday is officially the Tiki Hut Non-Labor Day!

L.G.Smith said...

I plan on sleeping in and eating lots of BBQ. I'm practicing for my winter hibernation. :)

Carol Kilgore said...

L.G.Smith - Funny! Enjoy.

Talei said...

sounds wonderful, I would love to float in a pool - right now! :-) xo

Carol Kilgore said...

Same for me, Talei.

Janet, said...

Those all sound better than what we are doing. We are laboring or labor day weekend. Still painting our storage bldg/workshop! And our thermometer on the deck just pegged out.

Now I'm wishing I had a holiday coming up!

Wendy said...

Oh yeah, we totally went for the pizza. But we used that option up before the actual labor day so we'll have to go to Plan B!

Stopped in from the BBQ to say hi. :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Joy - I know that feeling. We'll let you celebrate ours :)

Wendy - Good for you. Always have a Plan B!
