Weekend Snapshots

It felt like a winter weekend over here! And to be honest we all have cabin fever despite getting out – we miss summer!

Saturday we took the girls to Wingfest then afterwards my Mom, Avery and I went to our favourite market – All Things Pretty market.

Our afternoon at home we baked and coloured:

Chloe is oddly obsessed with playing in the bathtub these days:

Wingfest – desptire being cold we enjoyed the event!

I forgot to take photos of what we got but the girls got outfits from Mini Street, some bath bombs, hair clips, hooded towels (Christmas gift for them) – I am realizing they got all the good stuff!!! haha

Sunday we woke up to more snow, I had my last long run to do and after 10km called ti quits as it was getting slushy and slippery in areas.

Chloe in her Mini Street outfit – yes, those are pleather pants.

Afternoon of my crafting and PlayDoh:

I am realizing we have to keep these girls a lot busier come these colder months so need to brainstorm some ideas!


Weekend Snapshots

This weekend I busted out my camera – something I try to do once a month or so versus always having phone photos – though they are great too!

Friday night we had a get together at my co-workers – these kids all get along so well!

Saturday’s highlight was checking out a new park and visiting our favourite park:

Two hours later and neither girl wanted to go home!

That night I had a girls night – axe throwing (three bullseyes!) and supper with three of my girlfriends from high school:

Sunday morning was our long run – 16km – almost taper time!

So many beautiful fall colours – which made me decide to take photos of the girls after nap time – which went okay, I got some good ones for sure but not the ones I wanted – of course! So just means another day out for more photos 😉 haha. I decided to attempt our own photos of Christmas cards this year so this was attempt #1.

How I had to take photos for awhile – Chloe attached to my leg!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!


Long Weekend Snapshots

While I dreamt of one last beach weekend with hot weather we had quite the opposite and it definitely felt like the last weekend of summer.

Friday night the girls and I had a girls movie night. I lost and we watched a Veggie Tales movie but they did share the popcorn 😉

On Saturday we spent the afternoon at the Kraay Farm and corn maze. This place is so fun – and you could spend an entire day there – there is so much to do!

Lets play find Chloe – outfit fail!

So excited that she could write her name on the truck!

Our best attempts at a family photo – Chloe just wanted to run!

Sunday was a 19km run, coffee at McDonalds in princess dresses, chores then one last time out at the river property for a hot dog roast.

Yesterday was spent baking, hanging out at home, decorating for fall, sorting summer and fall clothes and a few errands,

And taking photos of Princess Chloe – she is obsessed with playing dress -up these days so I had to document it 🙂


I squeezed in a run later, which despite the sun being out was chilly!

Another late post! For me it feels like summer is gone, we have had another cool weekend so I think it is time to accept fall 😉

Before we get into the weekend post, Thursday night we went to a drive-in movie (the girls first!) that I was on the planning committee for. It was such a fun night and event and we exceeded our attendance goal by a 100 vehicles!

Friday, Avery had a haircut and decided to cut 4″ off her hair!

I think it brought out more of her natural curl!

We spent some time at Chad’s Mom’s Saturday, the girls loved playing outside, with the cat (of course) and getting too dirty (Chloe):

Sunday was a quiet day spent at home after a 20km run for me!

After she took marker to her chairs, table and her face – as you can see:

It was supposed rain all day and why we stayed home but of course it didn’t and started right before our neighbourhood movie! Despite the rain and cold we set up large tents and had over 60 people attend!

Now we are officially in the first week of school 🙁

A day late! We got home later than expected Sunday evening & rathering than rushing around to get this post done I decided to put if off until today 🙂

The smokey skies continued Saturday so we stayed indoors except for a visit to a local nursery to see a small petting zoo.

One of the employees got the girls to pose for a photo:

Sunday morning we woke up to almost blue skies and a decent air quality which meant my long run was a go! After running Friday evening I got a bad headache so was not sure if I would run if the smoke stayed around.

I did 9km solo then had the gang join me for another 10km 🙂

We spent the rest of the day at Chad’s family’s property celebrating his Grandma’s 90th birthday! The girls love it there, between the other kids, playhouse, golf carts and the below wagon they run in circles!

Family handprints on the playhouse:

I am hoping we can soak up some sunshine this week before we officially enter the last week of summer – how is this possible?!
