Mowing the property and a Labor Day Celebration

It's been a busy few days around here.  Thursday we went out to the property to mow.  It was a beautiful day.  There was a breeze blowing and in the shade, it was very comfortable.
 I love the shape of this old dead tree.  I am enjoying in now because I believe it is destined to be removed.
 You can see Doug mowing in this one.  It didn't take long for the grass to get out of control.
                                            I like the shape of this one too, but it's a goner.
                                                               It's looking better out here.
 It was so quiet out here until Doug ran over a paint can that was left in the tall grass.  It made the loudest boom!  It scared me half to death.  I can't imagine what it did to Doug since he was on top of it.  It looks like someone was murdered out there.  LOL

                                                                     Yep, there it is again.
 I don't know what kind of wild flowers these are, but there are a lot of them growing at the bases of the trees.
 After about 3 hours of mowing, we left to head home.  We are still learning our way around and we decided to go home a different route.  Coming down we had taken Hwy 6.  It is a very easy way but it takes you through a lot of small towns that have a kazillion red lights.  Doug and Mike had taken
different route using one of the tollways.  We thought we could figure it out without using the GPS.
So we got on Hwy 288 and headed back towards Houston.  We were suppose to get on Beltway 8.  Instead we wound up on I610.
 yes, the dreaded 610 and it's now 4:00.  Did I say it was also a Friday.  Blow this picture up and look
at all the cars.  Doug said we took the scenic route because we were going so slow, even he could look around.
The traffic was so bad that I cut it all off in this picture so that you can just enjoy the beautiful sky.
We didn't get home that night until 6:00.  Big mistake we made.. yep BIG mistake.  No more 610!

Today, Saturday, the RV park we are staying at had a cookout for everyone to celebrate Labor Day.
Can you tell this is a Mother/Daugher?  On the right is Kristi.  She and her husband, Dave were our hosts.

                                       Dave, her husband is on the left.  We call him the Sheriff.
 The two ladies on the right are also employees of the Resort.  It looks like they are plotting something.

 It seems that some of frogs had gotten into the pool and the girls had to go get them out.
                                              That was their story and they are sticking to it!  
                                             Someone can sure throw that horse shoe!
                                   Looks like he gave up and went back to eat some more.

I think everyone had a good time.  There was talk about a chili cook-off in October.  I think I can win that.  

                                                             Happy Labor Day folks!
