Heck Of A Labor Day Weekend - 2021

 

obligatory selfie!

Just like most other weekends I'm off work, I spent Labor Day weekend at our campsite at Woodyz Acres Campground in Missouri.  The place and its people have become our second home and family.  Because the owners were busy with their daughter's birthday parties, me and another friend took over operations of Activity Directors.  The schedule was packed full!

The owners, Marty and Kasi, with their three girls.  They were dressed up for the middle child's birthday party.

Friday night was pretty low-key.  We just hung around, gabbed with friends, ate a ton of food, and rode the trails on our Side by Side.  Saturday was a whirlwind of activities.  Throughout the day were cornhole tournaments and scavenger hunts.  Tammy and I entertained the kids with a Cake Walk.  Later in the day was Candy Bar Bingo for the kids, followed by regular Bingo for the adults.

Sunday was a Poker Run for kids and adults, a water balloon fight for the kids, and a "Pick A Duck for a Prize" game for the kids.  It was followed with Candy Bar Bingo, regular Bingo, and a movie for kids on the outdoor projector.  Sunday also included an outdoor church service on TV and a large inflatable water slide.

I think it all went over well.  There wasn't much time to relax, considering I was busy with a bunch of stuff to do.  But, I have no complaints.  Now we're planning on how to make next year even bigger and better!

The water slide was wildly popular.

How did you celebrate Labor Day weekend?

Sounds like a perfect way to spend Labor Day. I'd even try that water slide (though I'd probably fall off and break my neck LOL)
