Weekend Recap

I think this was the first rainy weekend in almost a month, lets hope it stays that way for the next month πŸ˜‰


We had the day off and went hiking with the girls. We plan to do one month through to September and some longer ones so thought this would be a test run. We went to Bragg Creek and did the Fullerton Loop. It was 6.4km roundtrip and family-friendly according to the online description. I would say it was an easy hike but the part we missed was the 600 foot elevation gain – both carrying 25-35lbs – OY. It was a semi cloudy day so worked out well for the way up and just as we came down out came the sun and blue skies!

Lunch in the truck before the hike:

After we explored Bragg Creek – it is a cute town! We had ice cream, bought rocks, and got coffee to go.

Both girls slept the entire drive home, so since Avery had a lateΒ nap we watched Lego Batman after Chloe was in bed.


We woke up to rain and spent the morning running errands.

In the afternoon Avery and I went to a birthday party at the gymnastics club and she loved it. She surprised me by hanging from the rings and dropping into the foam pit and bouncing off the trampoline in the pit!

We spent the rest of the day baking and hanging out at home.


It was a cloudy morning but long runs don’t care about weather so off we went for 16km.

The cool weather was fine but the humidity was hard a couple times! We ended up running 16.5km to get coffee after then walked home – perfect cool down πŸ˜‰

Sunday is chores day, so i even put the girls to work sweeping the spider webs off the railings on the porch:

My Mom bought A the cutest romper at a market so even though it was a cloudy day she had to wear it:

Some days the girls fight over whose photo I am taking so now if they are both willing both get photos…Chloe’s “ootd πŸ˜‰

My crew:

We later went to my sister-in-law’s to meet our 3 week old nephew and visit.

He was so alert! Chad loves babies (no joke) so got his cuddles in.

And that was a wrap to our weekend!

    Looks like you guys had an awesome long weekend. I will have to keep that hike in mind for Liam and I. I absolutely love that romper on Avery! It's SO cute!

    Very cool that you are going hiking as a family! And very impressed that you & Chad are carrying both girls! Even Abel feels too heavy for me now beyond 1-2 miles.

    That's one of our favorite hikes. I just love Bragg. That romper really is adorable, love it! Sounds like a great weekend for sure.

      It was a great one! I would not say it was family friendly in the sense a little one could do it, or at least I know A would not yet! lol. And I am paranoid with the down part and clumsy kids lol..
