Summer slow down! Only a couple summer weekends left Do not get me wrong I love fall and September is my favourite month BUT this fall means I go back to work and then yes, winter…
Lets chat about our weekend…
Me and Avery went to Sylvan Lake to meet a friend and her boys at the market, it was bigger than the last time I went and so much there I wanted to buy but seeing as we leave this week on holidays I restrained.
Avery at the playground:
After the market we went back to their cabin to meet up with Chad and her husband. We made supper (or I should say our hosts did!) before heading out for a boat ride. Chad was brave and wake surfed:
I am not a water gal, so stayed dry on the boat cuddling this beauty:
She was SO good all day and night, we were up way past her bedtime (10pm) and she did not even fuss. The little boys adore her and are so great with her. I love it. They even helped feed her supper
We all slept in past 7am, took our time getting ready before heading out to run errands, Costco, Target ad groceries. At Costco I found some awesome workout leggings and found Chad an outfit for our family photos this fall. Anyone else have great luck for their husbands there? We always do! But all their clothes for me (besides workout ones) are all way too big
We chilled out at home till the late afternoon when we had to leave to Calgary to GlobalFest. This was out second year going and it once again was great. However, this year we bought VIP tickets at twice the cost thinking we could sit in a tent and on chairs…not the case. All the tents and chairs were for sponsors, but we did get a great view:
Miss. Avery was really good too, she cuddled up on Chad’s lap with her headphones and enjoyed the show:
It was another late night for us, we did not get home till midnight. Ack.
My alarm went off at 7am to wake me for my long run, Chad and Avery stayed asleep till 7:45am when I woke them up so I could feed Avery before my run. As I said last week I hate long runs these days, so I was so happy when my friend, Heather, texted me Friday to see if I wanted company for part of my run!
We met at 8am and did one of my favourite longer loops, it is along main drags but it keeps your mind off the time. At 15km Heather headed home and I finished another 4km. 19km for the win! I felt really good, just a tad tired. I am so surprised at how well training has gone for me this year since prior to that I had not trained in a couple years. *Knocks on wood* T-minus 3 weeks till my next half!
When I got home Chad rode her bike to the gym, I did some laundry and prepped brunch while Avery napped. Brunch was French Toast today – my favourite and apparently Avery’s too, she could not get enough!
I have been putting off buying new runners for a while now. I bought some Nike’s a couple months ago and turns out my feet HATE them, I have high arches and these have little support there. My Mizuno’s cost me a pretty penny so I really did not want to spend more money on running shoes. But we all know that having good running shoes that are not too worn is very important so I grabbed these beauties today:
I am thinking I might try and sell my Nike’s now since I have only worn them a few times, all indoors.
Since Avery was so good all weekend with the late nights and all we took her for ice cream afterwards. Yes, it was all for her
The rest of our day was spent doing chores, and keeping Avery entertained, she is so busy these days!
