Labor Day weekend marks the unofficial end of summer in New England and thus is the last hurrah before school starts and work gets (more) serious again. My birthday typically falls during or near Labor Day, so I always treat it as an excuse to celebrate for three days instead of a measly one. We kicked off the weekend at the freshly renovated Aquarium,
then took an inaugural ride on the new Greenway Carousel.
After adventures with our animal friends, we moved on to finding an appropriate birthday meal before the weekend is out.
