A weekend to remember!

Happy Monday!
We had a great weekend. Full of family time, friends and fun. That sounds super cliche but it's true! ha.
Friday: We had a showing so we went to visit Justin's Mom who was looking after Emerson - bonus. She kept us entertained by dancing for us (Emerson - not Debbie! ha ha). It is so cute, she bends her knees and bounces her butt. Hard to explain but oh so cute - and she knows it! Then we caught up on tv shows.

Saturday: It was gloomy out (and calling for rain) but we had plans to head out to Canmore with Mom and Dad for a mountain bike ride so we headed out anyways.

It rained most of the way out there and a bit at the beginning but we were lucky it quit and actually turned out to be a perfect temperature (it was 3C when we arrived!).

We posed! Riding in the rain is FUN!

Mom's chain broke not once but twice! Good thing Justin is handy.

The fall colors were so pretty.
 Typical Mom!

Then Justin and Dad did another trail while Mom and I rode back to the truck and drove to the pick up spot.
The trail Justin took Dad on was an 'Expert' and 'Black Diamond' trail.
Nice Justin! Dad had a few choice words for him - ha ha but enjoyed it none the less. And there was only a little blood.
Then we stopped for a bagel sandwhich at the Rocky Mountain Bagel Shop. So delicious.
It was a really fun day, the terrain was wet which made the rocks and roots very slippery so it was a little scary at time but the up hill climb makes up for the fun decent!

And then raced home as we needed to get ready for our dinner date.
AND I still had to make a dessert!
I had been eyeing these Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries on pinterest for a few weeks now so I whipped them up to take to Dustin and Whit's. They didn't love the ride over there in the car, it would have helped if they had time to set in the fridge..but they still turned out good. Recipe here.

Delish and super quick and easy.
We had a great visit with Dust, Whit and Easton. And dinner was amazing.
We even roasted marshmellows in the house! They have a wood burning fire place.

 Easton and I.
 Dust and Cruz playing tug.
 The beautiful Whit!

We worked on getting Whit's Photography blog started! It is going to be so great, can't wait.

Oh and we also got a call from our realtor with an offer... and we ACCEPTED!

So as long as all goes as planned with their finances we SOLD our house! YAY.
I'm SO happy to not have to have anymore showings! 
So tonight we are off to look at places. This is the fun part!

Sunday: We signed the offer with our realtor and Emerson came over.

We played, read books and then we went for a hour long walk while Justin went for a bike ride. She talked the whole time - it was too funny.

And yesterday Jeff got a call requesting him to go try out for a hockey team in Ontario, California!

So what does he do? Accepts, packs his bags, books a flight and he was gone by 6:00am this morning!
So we had a family dinner at our place last night before he left. Mom brought the meal!
(I made more of those strawberries!)
Emerson ate like a champ and even had a baby ice cream cone for dessert. She LOVED it and wanted to eat it much faster than I would let her!

 Cruz wanted in on it too.

 Jeff and Emerson have lots of fun together!

Holy long post batman! Hope everyone had a great weekend too.
And enjoy your Monday!
