Westerner Days 2014

fair 3 2014

This past week was Westerner Days in our city. The first day of the week-long celebration included a parade. My oldest was in it with cheer, so that means we were out the door pretty much when the sun rose. Then, we took in the Westerner Days Fair right after. I was surprised at my oldest, taking on the biggest rides for the first time. She literally could not get enough {of everything that made me dizzy just to … [Read more...]

Fireworks {Kind of} Captured

canada-day-fireworks

We spent a few days at our creek property last week, and celebrated Canada Day there. It was an incredible camping trip, and for a very specific reasons {but, more on that later}.  Of course, the highlight after the sun fully set, was the fireworks! Not long at all and it wasn't an intense and dramatic show - but they were one of the best ever.  A family chose them, invited neighbours and we … [Read more...]

HAPPY SUMMER EVERYONE!  {said with so much excitement I could burst} We had a remarkable weekend and a wonderful start to summer 2014!  Friday was the twins last day of Kindergarten {sniff}, so after some morning festivities at the school we went to 'Food Truck Fridays' downtown with some friends and ate lunch in the park. Some of the best food is served out the side of a truck. Just … [Read more...]

It's moments like this, while out camping, that make all the bug bites totally worth it. Solitude, peace, reflection and all the time in the world to watch my babies grow.   . … [Read more...]

Bittersweet

For the first time ever, I walked into the twins bedroom to find this ... They used to share a crib when they were first born, yet since have always slept in their own beds {there's two in the room that they share}. So, this event truly warmed my heart. This is love, true sisterly love. I will cherish this photo always. .... but That very same night the twins asked to have separate baths. Again, another … [Read more...]

Our Easter 2014

easter-2014-6

Hope you had a wonderful Easter! Our weekend festivities began with the dying of the eggs. Usually we do this a few days before Easter weekend, yet this year we decorated on Good Friday. The girls LOVE dying eggs!               Isabelle wrote a cute note for the bunny, so a couple eggs disappeared from the bowl later that night. I'm … [Read more...]

Spring Break

IMG_1730

PSA: We are in the middle of Spring Break, and enjoying every moment! Sleeping in, lazy days, baking ... and while my kids feel the need to dress like they're going to a party everyday, I balance that by spending as much time as I can in my PJ's. Yet, to prevent me from becoming a total sloth thanks to the break, I'm also doing some much needed de-cluttering of the house. In small doses though, since I am in … [Read more...]

Weekend Staycation

This past weekend the family and I went to Calgary for a weekend staycation. My oldest was in a cheer competition, so why not take the opportunity and stay for the weekend? Here are just a few quick phone snapshots from this weekend. A bit of randomness from much fun, food, laughter and shopping! How often do you take little staycations?     . . . … [Read more...]
