Weekend Recap

I do not care what anyone thinks but even with the sunny skies I felt fall in the air this weekend! As much as I love summer I am now ready for the season change and all that it will bring with it.


It was a low key night for us, I watched an episode of The Good Witch and then called it an (early) night.


I wanted to go to Once Upon A Child first thing for their Halloween/winter season kick off to look for a few things for Avery. As usual we made off too good! I brand new Gap coat that will be perfect for the carseat this winter, snowpants, mitts, a Halloween costume and a couple tops for $50!

We grabbed sushi for lunch since I had been wanting it for awhile and headed home for nap time. I got to work on some much needed blog stuff during Avery’s nap. Once she was up we headed out to my Grandma’s and to see some friends that were camping.

All ready to go!


My loves:


The kids playing at the campground! Don’t worry they were not “caged” the entire time 😉


We headed home for bedtime then we watched The Theory of Everything which I really liked!


I was wide awake at 6am so finished my book club book before Avery and Chad got up. We had a fun morning ahead – a family fun run – The Chocolate Chase! A friend of mine organized the race and it was an awesome time! They had everything for kids, free face painting, bouncy houses, balloon animals, activity booths and more!

Before the race (5km):


The race was not timed but we came in around 27 minutes hen headed to get our treats – gelato from Famoso, cupcakes from Babycakes and of course chocolate from Bernard Callebaut. Plus more goodies!



We stuck around after for some door prizes and Avery got a balloon flower made. We also talked to the Sportball booth since Avery liked their little set up and now we have to decide between it or gymnastics in January!


The rest of the day was pretty chill, chores, laundry, more garden harvesting, a SPCA visit (my Mom misses her kitty!). Oh and I have Avery a “little” haircut, I could no stand the mullet/strangly ends any longer! The good news? She is sporting a cute bob!

    Sounds like a great weekend. Chocolate Chase looked like such a blast!! i'm trying to decide if i should put Liam in sport ball too or if we will just stick to swimming for now.

    I meant to go to Once Upon a Child this weekend to check out the sale, but we were out of town and busy 🙁 Nice job on the finds though! And nice job on the race too 🙂 My niece who is 3 has gone to sportball and really liked it apparently. She's a bundle full of energy so it was perfect for her

    We need a race like that here!! I would totally sign up for it! Good time too!

    You cut Avery's hair? Impressive? I'm too afraid to do A's. She really needs a trim though!

      I do cut it! She does not love the salon and I figured I would save $20 for now. She sits really still (surprisingly!) and I just put a bib on backwards to catch the hair! It probably is not the most even but it looks good!

    What a fun weekend!!! I just love that pic of A with her back pack on 🙂 So cute!!! That run sounds like it was a blast, especially the treats afterwards; )

    That is my kinda race!!! YUM! Nice work on the hair cut, D needs a trim, it's so long. She is so cute with her shades and Chad!! Good haul at Once upon a child, I need to get over there!

  7. Ashley

    I need to figure out how to cut Noah's hair, it's a constant concern with how quick and often I need to get cuts done for him! Good job at Once Upon A Child!! I wish we had one close!! Love all the goodies offered at the race!! Can't believe how big A is getting!!
