Happy Tuesday. I was thankful for an extra day off yesterday with my 2 hooligans even if Ryder was a stage 5 clinger all afternoon and Delainey only spoke in "whine", Holy moly. Annnyways!
We had a great week and weekend - rewinding back.  
The usual park stops and ravine walks...Delainey loves "walking her dog Ryder" he plays along most of the time.



Some days were a little rainy. Note: Ryder needs an umbrella. Having to walk under your sisters is not fun.


But very cute on my end. :)


Thursday Delainey had gymnastics so Ma, Pa & Nana all came to watch.



From there the kids and I headed back to Nana's for lunch and that tricky Easter bunny made an early stop at her place while we at gymnastics. The kids were thrilled of course.



Ryder proved you can eat a chocolate with the foil on it and still enjoy it.



We played with eggs while Ryder napped. Hiding eggs might be one of her favorite activities!

A rainy, snowy walk with lots of worms = tons of fun! Delainey was instructing Ry to pick them up and put them in a pile to make a worm family or she would pick them up and hand them to him. Good thing they love washing their hands. After every walk now we walk in the door and Ry yells "hans" and runs to the washroom!


Mom and Dad came over to have dinner with the kids so Justin could come to my Surf class again! :) I do love having him there. And then we snuck to the watering hole for appies afterwards.


Friday was a holiday and Justin was home so I went to Telara's Hot Flow class in the morning and loved it. I have said hot yoga isn't my favorite workout but I would definitely go to this class again. The kids and I got groceries after that while Justin and Brian worked on their bikes.
After naps the kids went to Ma & Pa's for a sleepover! {YAY for Ma & Pa being home from their trip.}
As always the kids had fun and did lots and lots of activities!


Justin and I went to Trolley 5 for dinner and it was delicious. It's a new-er craft brewery in Calgary so we tried a few different beers and had a great meal. I learned I do not like IPAs at all. ick.


We spotted this wall on the way home and naturally Justin just knew he was to take my photo with it. It's near our hair salon so you bet I am stopping to get a photo of Delainey with it after our appointment on Sunday. I wish it was in our backyard. :)


Saturday morning my cousin Ashley stopped by with little Sawyer so we could {finally} meet him! Mom and Dad brought the kids back then too so they could visit and Jolie & Nana came as well. He is the sweetest and I got a good snuggle in but as always can't wait until the next. Ryder was pretty cute with him too.


I had some excellent helpers to make carrot cake for our Easter dinner on Sunday.



Delainey was VERY excited that the Easter bunny arrived and was so cute telling Ryder what to do before she scurried off to find eggs.



The Easter bunny also left treasure hunt clues to find a few goodies.


She really wanted to leave the Easter bunny a treat - the aftermath. 


Delainey and I finished the carrot cake while Ryder napped.


More egg play before bath time. And then I made the mistake of letting them take these in the bath and they are no longer metallic! Whoops.

I got a few photos of Ryder in his new floral outfit from a little shop in the Comox Valley - she asked if Ryder would show off a floral outfit and I think he can totally pull it off! :)






Playing with their new Boogie Boards from the Easter bunny. 


All ready for Easter dinner #2. We had a delicious dinner and family night with Ma, Pa, Auntie Jolie, Uncle Jeff and Nana. And you guessed it - another egg hunt!



I was off yesterday as well so we hit up the library for new books and probably their favorite thing is playing eye spy with this wall and just running the hallways after each other!


This outfit Delainey was wearing was hilarious. I'm pretty sure she was wearing every color and pattern. :)



We had a picnic lunch inside as it didn't warm up enough by lunch to be outside {even though Delainey insisted we try and then she lasted 3 seconds until it was too cold}! 
Thankfully by after Ryder's nap it was beautiful out. New outfits because picnics are MESSY!

Even did some biking! Justin took Ryder's seat off and put a piece of a pool noodle for a seat and it's way better for his short little legs! 


Both kids were in bed early because dinner was a gong show and Justin fell asleep on the couch not 5 minutes after that! :)


We've had one of those weeks so I am ready for the weekend and some family time.We lost an incredibly special man in Justin's family this week. Uncle Gary was a father figure in Justin's life and I am forever grateful for the time I was able to spend with him, get to know him and hear his stories about little Justin. He taught Justin to ride a bike.
He was one of those people that was always trying to make others laugh, he had the best {& goofiest} sense of humor, was always teasing on someone {usually Debbie} and all round was just an awesome guy. Our trips to Vernon just won't be the same and I am sending all my love out there right now. Asbestos sucks. Cancer sucks.

Moving on the lighter topics...outfits from the last few weeks!




If you are local to Calgary and reading this and have yet to visit Glamorgan Bakery, you must go. They have the more amazing cheese buns. They are likely a billion calories but I guarantee you they are 100% worth it. You'll want to eat the whole bag actually. And if we are being honest, the cinnamon buns are incredible as well. I may have eaten both yesterday. Damn staff room snacks.


Michelle from Michelle Anne of Vancouver Island, BC has a cute new line of tees that include 3 variations of this shirt...classy, sassy and + badassy, not at at badassy or a little bit badassy. When she contacted me about showing off one off I was going to go with the logical pick and choose not at all badassy but decided to live a little. I mean I do stay up past 10pm on occasion and I tell Delainey I am eating almonds when in fact it's M&Ms I found stashed in the basement freezer from Halloween. ;) {And I wonder why I don't have abs}

tee: Michelle Anne, kimono: Urban Cowgirl

Always a blooper when Justin is my photographer! :) She offers free shipping too!


Portage and Main has a new Limited Edition Collection to celebrate Canada's 150th and we LOVE it.




These joggers are SO soft and cozy{Ryder is wearing size 6-12 months and his tee is 2T}. I mean they do have hockey sticks on them and that's one of his favorite things. And yes, he is still obsessed with these glasses from Valentine's Day!

Kristina Benson Art also has a Canada 150 collection live on her site and they are beautiful! There is plenty to choose from including leggings, crops, scarves, beanies, kimono, dresses, crop top, kids leggings, cell phone case and more - all with free shipping!



Happy Shopping!
