Labor Day

I hope everyone's having a great Labor Day. There was really pretty weather here except for some much-needed rain during the night.

In Cincinnati, the day before Labor Day means fireworks on the river. I stayed overnight in one of the hotels with Steph and Mike and the kids. There was a nice river view from the hotel room and the kids really loved looking out at the boats.

And the swimming. They really loved the swimming.

Nora tried out the hot tub too. Aaron would have liked to, but it was hotter than most, too hot for his little(?) two-year-old body.

In the afternoon, boats and people started gathering at the riverfront to get a good spot for the big event. I'm sure it was even more crowded further down.

You never know what kids will enjoy the most. Aaron liked trying out this brownie, hated waiting, rode the glass elevators again and again, and "liked the boom" when the fireworks started.

And Nora? She was so enchanted with the glow-in-the-dark bracelets like the one on Steph's wrist that she paid minimal attention to the fireworks. The bracelets could be linked together and she tried all kinds of configurations. I've got to see if I can find more for her.
