The first Labor Day was celebrated on a Tuesday, September 5th, 1882 in New York City. It is now celebrated on the first Monday in September and most people have the day off from work.
We celebrated early today by working in the morning, unpacking box after box and catching up with laundry, load after load. After lunch, we headed outdoors for some entertainment at the Stanford Soccer Stadium, watching a Men’s soccer game with my parents.
The weather was warm and not too hot, with a slight breeze, making it a perfect day.
The kids enjoyed traditional stadium snacks including popcorn, ice cream, and French fries with catsup and not mayonnaise.
Look how this kid eats his popcorn. Oh, to be a kid!!
The game was so exciting and we had front row, general admission seats. Too bad Stanford lost to Georgetown, 0-2 but we had a good time, nevertheless.
Afterwards, we headed to Downtown Mountain View for our favorite Thai food and ambiance and to celebrate my day’s birthday this week. Dinner was fabulous and we left content and satiated. We decided to stroll a bit to walk off our dinner.
We ran into our friends and enjoyed chatting for probably longer than we spent eating dinner. This is one of the things I love about being back home and helps me to feel more settled. I love the weather, being in my neighborhood, and running into friends.
Life is good. I hope you’re relaxing and enjoying a long, holiday weekend in America or in spirit wherever you are.
