I love Labor Day! Not only has Labor Day always signified the beginning of school, football games, and putting away of white shoes, it has always also been the weekend we celebrate my Mama. Mama’s birthday always falls sometime around the big weekend and we take the opportunity to celebrate her big day all weekend long, if possible.

When I was a little girl, we’d usually spend the long weekend on our houseboat on the lake. We’d alternate from fishing to just drifting along on floats alongside the houseboat as we were anchored in our favorite cove. My sister and I would splash each other as we squealed and then called for Mama to make the other one stop. I think I was actually the one to start the splashing, but at that age, you’d never want to admit that your sister was right. That would have been worse than the scolding for sure.
