Labor Day Weekend

The long weekend was mostly spent with friends, hanging out and having fun. K went to her friend Tiff’s bachelorette party/lingerie shower, and had a great time celebrating her upcoming wedding. (However, pictures from that evening are classified.) Labor Day Monday was our friend Gregor’s birthday, and we had all made plans to spend the afternoon at the Del Mar races together for him, so we donned our big hats and cheered on the horses for several hours before re-convening at a beachy pizza place for dinner. It was a most excellent way to kick off fall 2011.

Did I mention we saw an amazing sunset? The pictures don’t do it justice, but still…

Labor Day Weekend

While we didn’t have anything hugely exciting planned for this Labor Day weekend, we still managed to celebrate the holiday in true American fashion: baseball and hot dogs! (Veggie dogs for K.) We got cheap seats for a San Diego Padres game on Saturday and took the trolley downtown to Petco Park. Even though the Padres lost, it was a fun afternoon, and a gorgeous day for baseball. 

We even got to see the Famous San Diego Chicken! We had no idea what the big deal was, but when he climbed over the home run wall, the crowd seriously went wild! Apparently the Chicken has been around for decades, making appearances at various sporting events, and so it’s not a regular event to see him at a game. In fact, when I looked him up, I didn’t see this particular game listed on his official schedule, so it’s possible this was a “surprise” visit! Regardless, it was a lot of fun to watch his antics — as well as the antics of his clearly adoring fans!

Oh yeah — and the hot dogs were quite yummy, too.
