Labor Day

My eyes flutter open to the flapping sound of the strings of pennet flags being hung from house to house. A smile spreads across my face. It’s Labor Day weekend…the best beach weekend of the year.

This was years ago. Sadly, there are no longer pennet flags to wake me in the morning but other traditions still continue…

  • Memorial walks
  • Three-legged and potato sack races
  • Egg toss
  • A block party full of bad music and dancing
  • Belgium waffle breakfast
  • A family costume parade
  • Hot dogs and hamburgers
  • Pizza frite
  • Ice cream
  • And of course lots of family time
