2017 Review

This has to be one of my favourite posts to write, I love looking back on the year and all the memories!

January

Marked my first month back to work after having Chloe. I went back 3 months early and have to admit loved it. The girls adjusted into dayhome great and all around it was the best decision for us.

February-March

We went on our first flight as a family of 4 to Arizona! While there Chad and I PR’ed at the Phoenix Half Marathon:

We spent our days visiting with family & friends, swimming and enjoying the sun. The 2 weeks went by way too fast!

April

Chloe turned ONE!

Easter is my second favourite holiday to Christmas and it is was even more fun with these two. I think this was the first year Avery really got into the whole “Easter egg hunt”:

May

May greeted us with some really nice weather and we started to spend all the time we could outside. Including the zoo, a Mother’s Day race and planting our garden!

June

Our first family hike that was great even with less than ideal weather! A family 10km race and a visit to our favourite little farm:

July

Canada Day, the fair & parade, fires & s’mores, beautiful sunny runs – take me back!

 

August

We took a short week of holidays that was spent in Banff for a few days for a wedding, then home for a few days and then our FIRST holiday since becoming parents without kids!

Chad and I Went to Vancouver to run the Lululemon Sea Wheeze half marathon with friends for three days, it was great to get away and we enjoyed every minute but agreed 3-4 days was our max!

Another family race!

September 

Another hike to end of summer, the corn maze, beautiful fall walks and nights AND Avery started pre-school!

October

We hosted Thanksgiving, my crazy fall work schedule started, we went to Canmore to have family photos taken and we celebrated a chilly Halloween!

November

Miss.Avery turns 4! We went to West Ed to celebrate, Avery tried skating on real skates, and we started to celebrate all things Christmas!

December

December 1st feels like yesterday! I had my Christmas party, Avery and I went to a princess tea, we baked Christmas cookies, made ornaments and of course had the best Christmas yet!

While I am sad to see 2017 go I always look forward to what is to come. I know this year is going to be even better with all the fun things we already have planned!
