Weekend Recap

Is it possible that a weekend can leave one so exhausteed yet satisfied? Because that is how I feel these days. We pack a lot into two days since during the week our family fun time is limited.


Not much exciting to share, I went for a run & Chad assembled our new patio furniture.


We swapped our long run for Saturday morning and boy did our legs struggle – we will blame the Friday run and Thursday leg workouts 😉

The girls looking too cute for a run:

We ran 14.5km before calling it quits.

Our afternoon was spent biking just over 15km to a little farm in our city (Sunnybrook for locals). It is easily one of our favourite summer places to visit. We met my Mom, brother and his girlfriend there too.

The animals are all so good with kids, both girls love animals so they were in their element.

After supper Avery and I cleaned up to go to a Peter Pan musical that a youth theater group put on.

I was beyond impressed and will be going to their future shows for sure!


We had a semi slow Sunday morning until we headed to the neighbourhood clean up and BBQ. I helped with set-up while Chad and Avery did clean up. It is so awesome to be part of a great neighbourhood that puts these things together. I sit on the community board and love being able to plan these event with like-minded neighbours. We had a bouncy castle for the kids, face painting and the free BBQ.

I only took one photo of Avery’s face painting:

The rest of the day was spent visiting with my brother and his girlfriend, going to get Chloe a helmet and looking at stain for an outdoor project.

And that was our weekend! We have another busy week, Chad has a work event, I am out of town for work one day, have a dentist appointment a work luncheon and Friday we are off work and as long as the weather holds we are heading out on a hike for the day.
