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.

Weekend Recap

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend & Mother’s Day 🙂

Friday

I promised Avery a movie night so we went to the video store after work. Bur first some Fri-Yay photos. I had to share the whole “series: of Chloe:

We watched some movie Avery picked out then called it a night.

Saturday

We spent the morning at the annual local Mother’s Day race that we go to every year. We walked/ran the 5km with my Mom and the girls and then Avery did the 100m run – next year Chloe can do it and Avery does the 250m!

It was pretty chilly but we had some sun still.

Avery ran the whole race this year and did not cry so that was a win 😉

We were taking photos and I asked her to pose – of course she did a yoga pose:

Later we walked to the park, Avery rode her bike – she is bike obsessed now!

I think I was asleep by 9:30pm – haha

Sunday

Chad got a gym membership after not having one for 1.5 years and since the gym opened Saturday he wanted to go so I decided to take the girls for a run. Wow 6 months of not running with them plus some extra weight, I think 50lbs total plus the stroller left me tired and humbled. It was a tough 7km!

Oh yes and my Mother’s Day gifts, new Instagram magnets, flowers, crafts the girls made at dayhome and sign my Mom and a Starbucks gift card – I have the best family and dayhome 🙂

I needed coffee after my run so we walked (again Avery ride her bike) and we went for coffee and treats. Avery is cake pop obsessed and loves when they get new ones, it was a pirate one today:

During Chloe’s nap I cleaned house, we made a craft for my Mom and Grandma then packed up for a picnic with my family. Once she was up we met my Mom, Grandma, her boyfriend, my one brother and girlfriend for a picnic.

Easy crafts are the best 🙂

It was the perfect way to wrap up the weekend and the rain came just as we were about to go.

I am so blessed to be a Mom, have the best Mom who I admire more and more every day that I am doing this gig.

Now I am more than ready for a couple short work weeks!

Weekend Recap

Since my brain seems to be drawing a blank right now, jumping into the weekend recap:

Friday

I left my run for this day since it was supposed to be really nice. But it turned out windy and cloudy, after Chloe was in bed Avery decided to join me versus watching hockey with Chad. We did a quick 6km:

Running with the BOB is so much nicer than the double stroller!

Saturday

Since Avery gets to stay up later than Chloe me and Chloe have a morning tradition where we cuddle in bed for 5-10 minutes before we start our day:

We met up with some of Chad’s co-workers to pick garbage for the morning bright and early. It is the annual city clean up so we make sure to do our part. The girls and I spent 90 minutes picking garbage before calling it a day and heading home.

I think Chad said total (about 10 of us) we did 20 bags!

We had lunch before heading to the backyard to play for a bit:

Later on we went to have a BBQ with my family then my Mom, Avery and I headed to a local market. I usually am on top of it and know what vendors are going to be there that I follow on Instagram but did not and was happy to see a few favourites – even if I did not recognize some of the ladies! Mom brain! I promised myself that I would buy myself something and not the girls, which I did and will share later this week 🙂

I did pick up some cookies and this juice for the girls though:

Once Avery was in bed Chad and I watched The Accountant – two thumbs up!

Sunday

It was not as near as nice as Saturday but keeping with my promise to run outside I went out for a run. About a minute in I regretted my clothing choice of shorts and a t-shirt but decided I would warm up – WRONG. I had a cold head wind and was so cold! No photo since I ran my butt off just to get home!

Our day was spent doing chores, planting out front porch flowers and visiting the SPCA:

And that is a wrap to our weekend!

Weekend Recap

Oh hi May – you better bring us more sunshine 😉 This weekend was great, we were productive but still had a lot of fun time too.

Friday

The sun came out so I knew that if it stayed nice I wanted to run in the evening. Once Chloe was in bed I went for a quick 6km run.

I got home and Chad went to watch the hockey game with friends so Avery and I had a movie night, we watched Sing for the 100th time (its her fav). After she went to bed I caught up on our family Mixbook album for 2017 since I had not done any months past January!

Saturday

My Mom and I went to the craft sale in the morning and met up with my friend, her baby, and Mom. I was super pleased (my wallet was not though…) with the sale and got quite a few things, soup mixes, veggie chips, the cutest dress and fox socks from Mini Street, hair clips & headband for Chloe and a planter for the deck.

The cat in my planter:

Avery in the dress – can I get one in my size?!

Chad took the girls to an indoor playground while we were at the craft sale and they had a ton of fun by the sounds of it. And like a good Instagram husband (ha) he took photos for the blog, well one photo:

In the afternoon we cleaned up the yard and started to wash windows, Avery washed her water table:

Chloe got up from her nap and joined in:

We went out to Famoso for supper with my Mom, all ready to go and looking too cool 😉

This one ate pizza and did not get sick!! So hopefully we can add in some more dairy slowly 🙂

On the way home we saw a scary accident right beside us when someone pulled out onto the road and hit another car which then flipped a few times before landing upright. We were the second people to the SUV and thankfully everyone was ok.

Later Chad and I watched La La Land and I loved it – I want to watch it again and that never happens!

Sunday

It was a nice morning so we went out for a family run – first one in months! We did 9km:

I met my Mom and Grandma for lunch with the girls while Chad stayed home to finish some house and yard work. Both girls fell asleep on my way home so I got them transferred into the house before washing floors and light fixtures – yes, we are in spring cleaning mode 😉

I took no photos all day but we made cookies, visited with Chad’s Dad & Step-Mom and looked at a show home we bought tickets for. I wanted to get out to the park but ti started to rain and of course as I type this at 8pm the sun is out and bright 😉

Wait I lie, I did take on other photo. Avery in her room, listening to the iPod and playing on the iPad, 3 going on 13 😉

Weekend Recap

Such a fun weekend! But before I get into it I forgot I took some photos of the girls Tuesday morning (Chloe’s birthday), I actually thought I might get a good one of them together…HA

Back to the weekend.

Friday

After work my Mom came over to watch the girls so we could go to a gala event with my work, it was so much fun (as it always is) and it was alos fun to get all dressed up:

It was a later night than we are used to but totally worth it 🙂

Saturday

Of course both girls were up at 6am…yawn, so we had a lazy morning until we headed to a birthday party for a couple hours. The girls had a ton of fun and it is always great to get together with friends and their little ones.

During Chloe’s nap we decorated eggs with Avery:

The final product:

Later we walked over to a spin-a-thon for my spin studio, I really should’ve planned it out better to jump on a bike but didn’t – next year!

I lucked out with going out two nights in a row 😉 I met up with friends for supper and drinks, these girls are some of my longest friends (18+ years!):

I got home and Chad left to a friend’s party so Avery and I stayed up reading books and watched some TV before she went to bed. I was pretty tired too but waited up until Chad got home to go to bed.

Sunday

We all slept until 7am – much better! I did a 8km treadmill run, I really need to run outside more but am loving watching This Is Us on my runs 😉 Soon I will find the motivation to get outside and run more than one day a week!

Our day was pretty quiet, we baked, played dress up & house (Avery’s current favourite), I started some Spring cleaning, we hung out on the deck in the sun and then walked over for Avery’s haircut – just a trim.

I just got word dayhome is closed tomorrow due to illness and since Chad and I both cannot get away for the entire day my brother is rescuing us and coming over for a few hours so we can get to our meetings. It really does take a village most days!
