Happy Labor Day Everyone!
Happy Labor Day everyone! Some people will be celebrating Labor Day in many different forms. Some will be at a picnic or parade, boating, shooting off fireworks and the list goes on and on. Not everyone knows what they are celebrating though. Here is a short paragraph on what Labor Day means
Children were forced into back-breaking jobs day and night in mines, textiles, glass factories, canneries and other places where children don't belong. Labor activists eventually ended child labor -- and won better working conditions for adult workers, including the eight-hour work day. Always celebrated on the first Monday in September, Labor Day honors the social and economic contributions that the American worker has made to the growth health and prosperity of this country.
Hope you are having a wonderful Labor Day where ever you are! What are your plans today?
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
