A Squared: Labor Day Weekend Forecast

Labor Day Weekend Forecast

Labor Day weekend is upon us already.  I can't believe that summer is really wrapping up-- It feels like it just started!  Unlike the past few Labor Day weekends we actually don't have a wedding to attend this year, however the weekend will still be just as busy.  I'm also a little concerned as it sounds like the remnants of Hurricane Isaac will be headed our way and we can expect some big rainstorms on Saturday-- just in time for a day full of nonrefundable outdoor activities that we have had planned for months.  I'm trying not to dwell on it too much though as we certainly aren't seeing the worst of it.  Check out my friend Julie's most recent post over at Holy City Confessions.  She lives in Charleston and definitely received much more of a weather beating than we are expecting here!

So, what do we have planned for this weekend, you ask?  On Saturday we are embarking on a walking food tour of the Bucktown and Wicker Park neighborhoods-- a wedding gift from our good friends Brad and Kristen.  I'll be wearing my wellies for that, no doubt!  And then that evening we are off to the North Shore for our very first concert at Ravinia.  We have lawn seats.  This will be interesting.  And wet.


On Sunday morning we are off to Rhode Island for a little end of summer R&R.  Actually, I have to (conveniently) be there for work on Tuesday and Wednesday so I decided to drag my husband along to enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend with me there. 

I'm hoping that Isaac has already bid farewell to New England so that we can enjoy some pool time...

And I'm also hoping to visit with this little munchkin.  Did I tell you she's moving to Michigan?  She'll be only a few hours drive from Aunt Annie and Uncle Alex now.  :)

Obviously, we'll be posting some post-weeked updates that will likely include some great stories and funny pictures of us wearing rain ponchos and rocking out to Hall & Oates.  In the meatime though, have a safe, fun, and relaxing holiday weekend!

P.S. A Squared got a bit of a makeover this week... what do you think of our new look?
