What do you have planned for Labor Day Weekend!?!?!?
Labor Day is often regarded simply as a day of rest and or end of summer celebrations that include picnics, barbecues, fireworks, parades, water sports, and public art events. Families with school-age children take it as the last chance to travel before the end of summer. In 2012, Labor Day will be celebrated on Monday, September 3rd.
My Family and I will be off today on our roadtrip to enjoying a nice weekend away in Canada. Fun filled mini vacation with the wife and kids, can it get any better than that?
I found some fun activities being held in New Jersey for anyone who still isn’t sure what to do. Don’t stay home! Make sure to go out and have fun saying goodbye to the summer. There’s no reason to stay indoors with so many things going on!!!!! Here are some great options for you.
