Happy Labor Day Weekend 2017

Labor Day

Happy Labor Day weekend to all the Union workers and everyone in the workforce. It’s been a relaxing 3 day weekend with the kids. My oldest child has no school on Monday so that gives her an extra day to stay up late and watch TV.

On Saturday 2, 2017 We got up at our regular time which is usually 8:00 am and got the kids started on their routine which is potty training the 2 and 1-year-old, getting breakfast, brushing their teeth, and get them out of their night clothes into day clothing. Then, I and the Hub will make us some coffee and breakfast for us. While we are drinking our coffee we are thinking about what we can do with the kids today and what’s on our to-do list.
So we decided to barbeque at the house. We going to buy some meats, snacks, drinks, and toys for the kids to play outside while the hub is cooking. Before the kids and I went outside to get the barbeque started Geraldo clean up the yard, the table, and the grill. Also, he went to the store and bought everything that we needed for today.
He came back and started the grill while the kids and I were outside playing with the bikes and toys. It was a nice day not hot for us and then we went in outside after a long day of eating and playing to start our nightly routine.

Sunday 3, 2017 have started the same as Saturday in the morning we got up and started our routines. I had to leave and go to the store to get some diapers and wipes for the kids. Then, I went and pick up some lunch for the family to eat. Afterwards, I went home and we ate lunch, children took nap, and I and the Geraldo had a break for ourselves.

 

Monday 4, 2017 have started the same as Sunday in the morning we got up and started our routines. Around 1:00 pm Geraldo started peeping his food to cook us a labor day meal and the kids just hanging around the house playing and relaxing. The day is fun and at night we going to make some pop corn and watch movies.

 

Here is what Labor Day is truly about:

Labor Day: What it Means

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the first observance of Labor Day was likely on Sept. 5, 1882 when 10,000 workers gathered in New York for a parade. The parade inspired similar events across the country and, by 1894, more than half the states were observing a “workingman’s holiday” on one day or another.

Later that year, Congress passed legislation and President Grover Cleveland signed a bill designating the first Monday in September as “Labor Day.”
