How To Spend Labor Day Weekend

It’s almost Labor Day weekend! It’s time to soak in the last sounds of summer, kick back, relax, and enjoy the long weekend with these activities.

One Last Road Trip

If you didn’t travel as much as you would have liked to this summer, now is your chance. The kids are out of school on Monday, and most adults aren’t required to work. Whether you are a fan of the beach, lake, or mountains, go make one last summertime memory.

Run Through the Sprinkler

While it’s almost September, that doesn’t mean it’s not still beaming hot. The summer heat is here to stay in Kentucky, so if you are staying home, bring out the sprinkler for the kiddos. The neighborhood pool is bound to be crowded, so cool off at home with this hack.

Decorate for Fall

It doesn’t have to be chilly to get in the fall spirit. If you are a pumpkin-loving, flannel-crazed kind of family, now is your chance to use your day off work to decorate the house. Put pumpkins out front, light the pumpkin spice candle, and hang a harvest-themed wreath on your front door.

Have a Cookout

The long weekend calls for a cookout. Invite your friends and family over for hot dogs, hamburgers, macaroni and cheese, baked beans – you name it! Enjoy the warm climate while you can with some tasty treats out back. Set up a few lawn games to keep everyone entertained while you grill.

Set Up a Movie in the Backyard

Have you always wanted to be a Pinterest-worthy family but you never had the time? Entertain the kiddos this summer with a backyard movie. Pop the popcorn, throw up a projector screen, and lay down plenty of blankets and pillows so everyone can get comfy. If you want to turn it into a full evening event, roast marshmallows and spend the night in a tent as a family. Now, that’s what we call a staycation!
