Labor Day Weekend 2010

We are having a wonderful weekend so far. Now we are enjoying a relaxing day at home in our pajamas!! The boys are loving having their daddy home!

Last night, we got together with family at my parents house. We would normally get together and make homemade pizza and swim. It was my (crazy) idea to try something new. The day before I was watching a food network show and she was making sushi. It actually looked good and looked to be pretty easy to make. I asked my parents if they would want to make some sushi, and they thought it would be an adventure.

We made lots of sushi (all different kinds). It was not that hard to make, and it was a lot of fun. This was my first time trying sushi, and I was excited to try it. The first one I tried was a crab, peach, and avocado roll. It sounds great right?? Well, it had Nori in it, which is the seaweed stuff. It was AWFUL!!!! I did try a roll without the Nori and decided that I could tolerate the rolls without the seaweed. Everyone else thought that it was all pretty good. I filled up on cantaloupe!!

After dinner, the boys went swimming with the kids. The water was a little too cold for the girls. When it got dark, Papa made a fire in the fireplace and we roasted marshmellows and made smores. They were REALLY good!!

Overall, it was a great night with family to try something new. I would like to try sushi again at a restaurant. I know now to not eat anything with Nori in it!!

Here are some pictures. Have a great Labor Day weekend!!
