I cannot believe it is August 15th! I love summer but fall is my favourite so I am already a tad excited for that. As well this week marks my half way point in my maternity leave – SO crazy!
We went out to Ellis Bird Farm with my Grandma. Long story short, we were there still at nap time and that did not go over well for anyone. But Avery still had a ton of fun, from petting goats and catching minnows (with her bare hands – YUCK).
That afternoon we returned some stuff to Old Navy, and tried to find some things for myself which was a fail. I feel like all their clothes doubled in size or the styles are really baggy. Even Avery said “too big, maybe not Mom” to everything I tried on. Boo.
A beautiful evening called for a walk and park trip:
My brother hooked us up with Netflix so after the girls were in bed we watched The Do Over which turned out to be a good movie.
We made an early trip to the market and once I got there I remembered the hummus guy was not there 🙁 Avery got mini donuts and picked out flowers for her Grandma since it was her birthday party later on.
Oh and total Mom win – I semi did her hair with a cute side braid. This is a big deal to me, I cannot do hair whatsoever so this made my day:
The rest of our Saturday was filled with parties, first a friend’s daughter turned one and then Chad’s step-mom turned 60.
It was a great afternoon and evening and by the time we got home it was after 9pm so we called it a night!
My training plan called for a long run of 18km, I told Chad he and the girls did not need to join for all but he was up for it so off we went. We had no idea how far to go and when to turn around so we ended up doing 19.92km! Poor Chad pushed the girls up the massive hill (below) and then I made him take a photo with me at the top, wife of the year 😉
I was SO proud of Chad and the girls – such great training partners!
Our Sunday was then filled with garage organizing now that our shed is built, house chores and having my Mom for supper – and no photos!
