Since we had a busy weekend I am going to jump right into it and share too many photos 😉
We played outside after work since the sun was out and I was feeling a tad tired and hoped the sun would help me too.
After supper I started to feel a headache coming on so I went for a run in hopes it would help – and it did! We ended the night with a movie which I did not even finish and then went to bed early.
We left mid morning to head to Calgary to see some friends and their kids and babies – insert squeal here – it had been WAY too long since I saw them all so I was so happy to make the trip and meet the newest additions. The kids had so much fun together, a huge thank you to Alison for hosting!
We got home, had more backyard time then had my Mom over for supper before heading to a local market and getting some awesome goodies – I forgot to take photos but we got hair bows, a little wood picnic table for girls and Avery got a mala bracelet.

Hanging out on the picnic table:
We came home and visited with my brother, his girlfriend and Mom before getting the girls to bed. Since we did not want to stay up late we watched some Netflix and called it a night.
We had a 18km run on the agenda. No matter how many of these do I find anything over 17km to intimidate me! It was a perfect morning for a run though we were not sure how it would go since the storm took out a lot of trees on the trails.
These two goofs before our run:
A few kilometers in we came across a race, which we have many times before. The first volunteer said there was a race on and to stay on the sidewalk which we were. The next one repeated that and semi hinted we should not be on the path. Then a guy came up on a bike saying he was on the organizing committee and we had to leave the path – UMM WHAT? Chad basically told him it was a public path and we were being respectful, but he kept following us and harassing us. I have never been so angry at a race organizer. Anyways we shared the path with them for 500m and only saw 4 runners which we kept pace with. Okay rant over 😉
We had a great run and saw some really sad areas where the trees were leveled by the storm. This area below a tree took out the fence on the path and we had go under and around it carrying the double stroller!
After we made our way for iced coffees & pancakes for the girls then walked home.
I gave Avery three options for the afternoon, the beach, a bike ride & new parks or set up the pool in the yard. She picked the beach so after C napped we headed out. We had a great couple of hours and Chloe loved the lake (and eating mud!).
We stopped for ice cream on the way home and ran into my Grandma – small world!
And that was our weekend!
