Maaaaayyyybe time to update the old blog, hey?
We went camping again at Dutch Creek last weekend, and once again the weather was out of this world. We had just a small group this time, but got the same spot and had a blast.
Tuesday night, Ty headed out to our friends cabin in Saskatchewan and due to me mixing up the dates we were suppose to go, I stayed home. It was my week of day shift, and we already had childcare arranged so I told Ty to go without me.
Work has been increasingly busy throughout the week, and to be honest I have been pooped. I try my hardest to do things that are fun when Ty is away, but pretty much would have liked to mail it in.
On Canada Day, there were lots of festivities happening in the park and around town. After work I offered the girls the choice of checking those out, or going to see Inside Out after dinner. Thankfully, after a day at the lake with my girlfriend (who watched them during the day), they opted for the movie.
I am glad the girls made the decision instead of me, because I felt like a terrible Mom for not wanting to navigate the crowds and stand in line.
The next day we invited my mom to go for dinner with us because we hadn’t seen her in about a week (too long in my opinion). She then watched them for about an hour while I grabbed a few groceries. I dont remember the last time I got groceries solo…it was a weird experience!
Friday we went over to my girlfriend’s house to watch her almost 6 month old while she and her hubby went to a movie. This little man is SO smiley, and the girls love him so much (even Abby, who claims she doesn’t care much for babies).
Saturday we checked out the Coaldale Candy Parade for the first time. The girls loved it, and it was the perfect length of time, and not crowded. Other than a lot of sidewalk smokers (major pet peeve: I know we are outside but it is an event geared towards kids) it was a great experience. We will definitely check it out again next year!
We did a little shopping and had lunch at the mall, and then as the girls rested I prepped a salad. The girls and I got ready and head out for the Faust’s Gender Reveal.
The party was a great get together, and I am thrilled for this expanding family. They are announcing the gender in person to a few people, so I won’t spill the beans yet!
A sudden thunderstorm hit, and the rain was absolutely dumping. The girls decided that was the moment they wanted to leave, and we got drenched in two seconds flat. We were seriously soaked, through our clothes and even the car seats had puddles in them just from having the doors open. A little water never hurt anyone, right?
We changed into warm jammies, popped some popcorn and had a movie night in the basement before settling into my bed for a sleep over. Tyler and I are always pretty adamant that our bed is just for us, but when he is away I bend the rules a bit!
So that was our week! Nothing too wild or crazy, but we got through our time without Daddy with lots of smiles and laughs :-)
