How Do You Celebrate Labor Day?

Like turning pages in your favorite book, Labor Day symbolizes the end of the Summer chapter and the beginning of Autumn.  This year I'm planning a drive to the Mississippi River to photograph the leaves in their brilliant Fall colors.  I will be spending more family time in the Amana Colonies where Autumn is the highlight of the year.  Today is the perfect day to host a family barbecue.  I'm firing up the Weber grille to make cheeseburgers.  My wife will be baking oatmeal cranberry cookies for dessert.  We're celebrating the progress we're making in our quest to become debt free.  It seems ironic that we're commemorating our jobs on a day we're both paid to be away from work, however, this Labor Day feels extra special.  How wonderful it is to be with all three of our adult children to savor this amazing day. 

How will you celebrate this Labor Day?  Do you have any special plans for Autumn?  Please share in the comments section below.  Happy Labor Day!
