Labor Day 2014

    The Herd has it made! What a fun household…could have used help with the wood but they were otherwise occupied!

    I believe you all have quite appropriately captured the spirit of Labor Day!!!

    Mom sez: Looks to me like everybody is doing what they’re supposed to be doing this Labour Day Weekend. Great job, Herd!

    I believe ‘labour-evader’ should be an official work title! 🙂
