Weekend Recap

Our heat wave continued all weekend long – nobody can say we did not have a good summer this year!


I took the day off since I had a couple appointments and my mother-in-law was visiting from B.C. I had a pedicure in the morning and a hair appointment in the afternoon = day made. In between we went for lunch and took the girls to a park/spray park area but neither wanted in their bathing suits.

Not even sure what we did that night now! I think it must’ve been an early bedtime ๐Ÿ™‚


We escaped kid free to do our grocery shopping thanks to Grandma!

We spent the afternoon our at Ellis Bird Farm for their festival with my mother-in-law, my mom, Grandma, Chad’s Grandma and Aunt!

It was hot but the girls had fun, we saw goats, chickens, fished for minnows, built a birdhouse and other crafts too!

Just realized I made it in no photos – fail!

We got home to a finished patio in our backyard! We had landscapers start Friday after work and work their butts off to get it done in 10 hours, so happy with it! This is probably all we will get done this year and finish the rest next year:

Later I headed to a stagette, we did a paint night at a friend’s house then supper.

We called it a night at 11pm – mom life ๐Ÿ˜‰


Thanks to Grandma again we escaped for a run without the girls! 20km was on the agenda and it was humid! We stopped at 10km, got more water and tossed some on our face which helped a ton. But by 20km we were done.

I thought we might go for a bike ride or the spray park for the afternoon but with storm warnings in place we stuck around home.

I finally broke my camera out for a few photos – I have to do this more!

And that was our weekend!

    The new patio is beautiful!
    The farm looks like so much fun – I wish there was something similar close to me – I know the kids would love it!

    Sounds like a great weekend! We had insane storms up here as well. Especially yesterday afternoon. Bet it felt to get out for a run without the huge jogging stroller!

    You guys have so many fun things to do in Red Deer! Might just have to make some trips up there ๐Ÿ™‚ That is my kind of stagette, way better than dressing up in goofy penis shaped things. Your patio turned out great!

      Thank you! Chad almost died at the money but it is worth it.
