Labor Day and Mexican Food
So Labor Day on Monday was so nice. We were able to stay in bed and watch Chity Chity Bang Bang, which I guess is a classic I had never seen growing up. It is 2 1/2 hours long. Needless to say it took 2 days to finish it. Then we cooked hashbrowns, eggs, and pancakes. :) That afternoon we went to Garfield Park which is so beautiful. I should have taken a picture. It has a beautiful garden, a lot of walking trails, and a fun play ground where we could swing. I love fall! It feels like it right now. I wore a sweat shirt. I love to crunch the leaves as I walk. I guess that's something that you don't grow out of. However, Ryan likes to sleep with the windows open at night so I bundle up like it's winter. LOL! :)
Then we came back home watched Men in Black which we've wanted to watch since our honeymoon at Orlando Florida. We had a BBQ with hamburgers on the grill, corn on the cob, watermelon, and green beans. YUMMY! Yep it was a full holiday with great food, movies, and having fun at the park.
I also forgot to say how much we love our friend Joe and Liz! They had us over for dinner one night and introduced us to some mexican food. This is a sandwich that we made trying to duplicate it but you have refried beans, mexican rice, fried chicken,jalapinos, sour cream, and goodness :)
