Weekend Round Up

Well another busy weekend for people who have a new born. We started off on Friday, with the new term fun day Fridays. On fun day fridays we have to do something fun, no chores, no sitting around at home. Something fun. So on Friday we headed off to Heritage Park, which is a fun Calgary historical village. Beth if you ever come to Calgary, there is an old steam train there that rides around the park. It's Lucas's favorite thing. So we rode the train a bunch, also went for a boat ride and did the merry go round. After all that adventure we headed over for a treat at the old fashioned candy store and then home. Lucas feel asleep in the car, so I had a couple of hours to myself on Friday afternoon. Yeah!!

Saturday, we planned to head out to the mountains to visit friends of ours, but plans changed when one of neighbors (the crazy ones) wanted to put up a fence. So Darryl helped while I was a mother again. Although Lucas was quite entertained by the neighboors bobcat he got from work. Amazing they did all of their landscaping in about 2 days and did most of the fence building. I guess I really shouldn't call them crazy anymore. Then we headed to my parents house for dinner.

Thank god for my parents. Darryl has been sick this week, so he's been going to bed early and I've been with the kids a lot. My parents have been incredible about coming over and helping. I don't think I've given Lucas a bath or read him books in the last 5 days. It is amazing to have them around and I thank god everyday.

Sunday we went to a new fun Calgary find. Had a delicious breakfast and then looked around at the store, flowers, Daisy the pig and the family of roosters. Afterwards my sister and went shopping and got some good deals. It's funny how the first day of summer all summer stuff seems to go on sale.

As I sit here writing this it is raining, thank god! It has been hot here and with no air conditioning the boys have not been sleeping well. Cool off a little. I don't like 30 degrees!

Hope you all had a fun weekend.

Till Tomorrow...... Jenn

We miss Heritage Park so much!! We would always go for the pancake breakfast and ride the horse drawn wagons about a bajillion times. The train was a novelty too, but Splinter and Shredder have won an eternal spot in Kaelen's heart. Sadly, Fort Steele just doesn't cut the mustard for Kaelen down here.

But hey ... we are coming up at the end of August and have promised the little man a trip to Heritage Park. Perhaps we can meet up?

Your weekend sounded so lovely! Great pictures too!!
