Our readers have been thoroughly enjoying the end of summer. From dancing the night away at the Made in America festival in Philadelphia to hiking in Washington state, co-piloting planes to Minnesota and brunching with friends, it was a busy Labor Day weekend all around!
As a reminder, the premise of "Best Weekend Ever" is that as much as you look forward to the weekend, it's also fun to look back on the amazing couple of days you just had and appreciate that time.
Next weekend, snap a picture and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll feature it here on Monday's Best Weekend Ever slideshow, and add our favorite weekly submission to our "Best Weekend Ever" Pinterest Board.
I led a group to the summit of Second Burroughs, elev 7400'. It's the site of one of the best - and closest - views of Mt. Rainier, in the background. It was a glorious day of wildflowers, stunning views, great exercise and fabulous friends!
This Atlanta girl was treated to some golf in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The scenery was amazing and I was very girlie in my pink!

Spent the weekend with my four beautiful aunts who were on their "sisters weekend" at Mexico Beach, FL. Mama died several years ago so since I am the oldest niece too, I got invited on this trip. My Aunt Earlene, second from left, is currently going thru chemo. I'm thankful and very blessed to have these women in my life.

I am a co-producer for an independent travel show Give and Getaway: Volunteer Vacations. My co-producer and I both live and DC, but we've currently been traveling throughout Southeast Asia filming two episodes for our show. The show's concept is to show true experiences of what it's like to volunteer abroad.We've just finished filming an episode in Thailand where we volunteered and filmed an organization where we helped teach English and computer skills, We are currently in Sri Lanka volunteering at an elephant rescue site. We spent our weekend filming an elephant named Bandara with an injured foot that is currently receiving treatment. It was fascinating to watch the doctor at work. I've passed along some production skills, but we'd also really love to talk about our trip to whoever is willing to hear it!
