Long Weekend Recap

I should say extra long weekend since I had four days off 🙂 I took way too many photos this weekend – be warne

Friday

I had the day off work so we started our morning with a run, then got ready and went to my work for lunch since we had a food truck coming by.

We got home by 1pm for Chloe’s nap, she napped and I washed floors and did some cleaning.

Once she was up we went to a greenhouse to get our garden plants:

Then got stuck in a down pour while trying to get groceries. After supper that night Chad and I went to a movie (Guardians of the Galaxy 2) for a date night.

Saturday

We started the day with the first market of the year, then we packed up and headed out to the zoo for the day. We had a ton of fun. It was busy but still seemed okay. Chloe loved it, squealed and clicked (she clicks her tongue at animals for some reason) at all the animals and walked around so happy – even though she missed a nap by 2.5 hours. Avery was being a threeanger for a bit but still came around 😉

We stopped at Village Ice Cream before coming home:

We had a light supper then decided to watch the new Beauty and the Beast with Avery – I think we fell asleep but she did not – HA!

Sunday

Day one of Sea Wheeze training so we did a 12km run which was not the best between us not running double digits for months and the girls fighting – but hey we did it!

My goal for the day was getting my garden boxes ready so we spent the day doing that.

We decided to eat on the deck since it was so nice out – might not have been the best idea since both of the girls were very distracted. We will work on that for this summer 🙂

Oh and Chloe got her first head wound – she fell into the deck:

Monday

Since I skipped making brunch Sunday I made pancakes for breakfast then Chad headed to the gym. The girls and I attempted to paint on the deck which turned into Chloe getting paint everywhere and Avery’s (and mine) OCD kicking into high gear over it.

When Chad got home I headed out for a 30 minute run. It was nice to get out solo!

It was another beautiful day so I made it my mission to stay outside all day. We planted the garden, played in the water table, had lunch outside, played every game we came up with, went to the park, on a bike ride… and got slushes. By 4pm I needed out of the sun!

And that was out long weekend, it was so much fun and I really enjoyed the extra days off with my family.
