Weekend Recap

So remind me not to say “we have a quiet weekend and no plans” and jinx it! Our quiet weekend was anything but…


After a long day and 2 hours at walk in, I am fine, just swimmers ear again – irony of that is that I do not swim but get these infections yearly I did not feel like running but had an interval run on the plan so off I went once Chloe was in bed.

It is never as bad once you are out there running! I came home and we watched Wolverine (I think that was the title – HA) and did not like it at all!


We started our day with a market trip:

Then Costco and another grocery store with a pit stop at the Cool Beans bus for coffee and a snack:

We came home, Chloe napped and I did my usual power clean session. After her nap we headed out of town to the nearby city my Grandma lives in and went to a park.

My Grandma made them dandelion necklaces:

We left there and made a pit stop at home before heading back out to Chad’s Dad’s for supper there since his Aunt and Grandma were in town. Chloe was in a crazy mood- what’s new and by the time we left I was exhausted so basically called it a night.


We were out by 8:30am for our 14km run:

This was a much better run from last week and the girls did not fight – win!

We spent the new few hours picking up a rug from our deck, having lunch (sushi!) and then more chores, while Avery played outside – she ended up in her bathing suit shortly after this photo:

The rest of the afternoon was spent at a small fair that was set up for the weekend. Since I drive by it on the way home Avery had asked to go but I had not made up my mind until a friend asked us to join them there since their little girl is a couple years older than Avery. It was perfect – they had so much fun!

I think Chloe felt left out 😉

Our weekend wrapped up BBQ’ing supper, hanging out on the deck and of course with ice cream. Chad took this photo and Chloe posed like this – while not at all a flattering photo of me I had to share of Chloe, sums her up these days.

    Oh man that photo of Chloe is SO cute!!! Love it.Sounds a very busy weekend! I feel like that's what happens when summer comes!! Crazy. But that sunshine though!? So nice.

    Haha i'll say you guys had a busy weekend! That little fair is so fun but I made the mistake of not buying a wristband for $30, we blew through 20 tickets way too fast and were there less than an hour.

      We did not get one either but it turned out ok. A couple times they did not take the girls tickets and let them ride twice a few times lol. I think we estimated they got 4 free rides!

    Sounds like a great weekend! Minus your ear of course! Do they give you anything to treat your swimmers ear, or does it go away on its own? Your pictures are fabulous! Chloe is growing so much! She is just a doll ❤ Can't wait to see you guys at the end of June!

      Yeah I get Ciprodex drops. I actually have a standing prescription but it was only good for 2 years so needed to renew it. Then when I do get one I just go to the pharmacy vs the Dr too.
      Awe thank you – I am so excited to see you guys too!

    That photo of Chloe is too cute! In some photos she is starting to look so much like a little girl vs a baby.
    We had a fair here this weekend & I would have liked to try a couple rides with Swede but the only option was a $20 wristband each & I just didn't think we'd get our money's worth…
    Looks like a really fun weekend all around though. 🙂

      I know, she is looking more like a little girl – and like Avey some days too!
      This was $20 in coupons which was about 9 rides since some did not charge the kids tickets lol. Avery would go on rides for hours if I let her, not me – I hate rides!
