Weekend Recap

I cannot get over the weather we have had lately, makes March so much better when you can get out and enjoy the sun!


We rented a couple movies after work, The Good Dinosaur and Fast and Furious 7. Supper was enjoyed while watching The Good Dinosaur which Avery loved.


The morning was spent running errands, and a pit stop for Booster Juice (I am on a smoothie kick in this warmer weather).


During Avery’s nap Chad and I worked on our little projects (livingroom tables) and once she was up we headed to a birthday party.

Avery LOVES parties, mainly because of the cake…


Becky and I tried to get a photo of Avery and Liam and this was as good as I got:


It was a fun afternoon!

By the time we got home it was time to start supper, then after Avery was in bed we watched Fast and Furious 7 – which had me confused since I am not sure I watched 5 or 6!


Daylight Savings Time made me feel like I slept in until after 7am – woot woot! Avery was up just after me, then we woke Chad up around 8am 😉

My Sunday workout was a 4km treadmill incline walk and some weights. Miss. C is sitting quite low so walking too fast is just not possible these days!


When I was done Avery and I had our weekly baking date. This one got a tad messy…

We made oatmeal fudge bars and chocolate chip banana yogurt bars.


Brunch (not pictured) was Pillsbury cinnamon rolls and Avocado Sunrise Smoothies – might be a new favourtie! All was good until Avery dropped hers and it went everywhere! Sigh.

I think I jinxed Avery’s good napping abilities lately since she did not nap, we put her in her room at 11:45am and she played in her bed until 1pm when she came out. While she does still need to nap I was fine with this since it still was quiet time and she did not whine or anything. And I got my house cleaning done in peace 🙂

After a snack we headed out for a walk and to the park.

Like I said above walking can suck right now so we did not make it too far! We came home and played outside for a bit so we could finish up our painting on the tables – just have final touch ups now!


The rest of the day was spent BBQ’ing, installing carseat bases, doing laundry and blogging 🙂

    Mmm those bars sound delicious! I've been wanting to see The Good Dinosaur – I showed Sully the trailer on the computer and afterwards he started signing "more" frantically while also saying it lol. (That's when I know he really wants something!). I think I stopped watching Fast and Furious after the third movie lol!

      They are both really good and easy to make! I liked the movie, I was not sure if A would like it but she did!
      I have no idea the last fast and Furious I watched, this was Chad's movie pick 😉

    I still haven't seen The Good Dinosaur. I tried to put it on for Liam one day but he just wanted to watched The Lego Movie. Always the Lego Movie.

    I thought the good dinosaur was kind of depressing 🙁 I am checking out both of those bar recipes!!!

    Sounds like a busy weekend!! Yay for baby being low – sort of haha. Mine is still high, but I have a lot of pressure on my pelvis, likely from my extra fluid. We are getting lots of rain. Is, but it's better than snow, so no complaints haha! It will be soo nice having a spring baby vs winter!!

      It can literally feel like someone is stabbing me with a knife when I walk – sorry for the description!
      I agree I would take rain over snow and cannot wait to have a spring baby so we can get out more!

    Sounds like a great weekend 🙂 Love the shot of Liam and Avery- so cute! I had a lot of pain while walking near the end too…it would be fine for a few steps and then feel like someone was stabbing me

    Sounds like a great weekend and the countdown is on!! SO exciting! I've been meaning to show D The Good Dino, she is so picky with what shows she will watch!!
