{week + end rewind}

 We got home from the lake on Wednesday and got right back into the swing of things here. Park hopping, walks and backyard fun. We were excited to get home to see our newly landscaped backyard and we are so happy with it. Photos just don't so it justice but as soon as Delainey saw it she said "Mommy you got to come look, it's beautiful!"
Thursday we got groceries, did a workout and then headed out to a park near us that we hadn't been to all summer.

I taught a full and super fun surf class before grabbing Blizzards for Miracle Treat Day. They went into the freezer and we enjoyed them the next day as when I get home from surf it's time for stories with the kids and bed.

{I definitely told all my surfers to meet me at DQ :) Quite a few listened!}

Friday morning we met up with Nicole and her 3 at Bowness Park for a play date. We arrived a bit early so of course Delainey asked to throw rocks.

We played at the park for a while before making the trek over to the new wading pool. {Big busy playgrounds aren't the best spot to catch up with friends I am learning because with 2 busy kids to keep an eye on I find it stressful to chat and make sure I know where both kids are.}

The wading pool is awesome. So clean and such a pretty spot right by the river. All our kids loved it!

That night we enjoyed the backyard and warm night while Justin BBQ's us dinner.

Saturday morning we headed out to meet Whit and the kids at the Millarville Market for our annual trip there. We had a great time and as always enjoyed a delicious lunch and came home with lots of fresh fruits and veggies.

That lemonade though!

While we were gone Justin finished the insulation in the garage. We then enjoyed the backyard some more. The kids love the new rocks!

Sunday morning we dropped the kids off bright and early at Gramma's and we headed to Jeff and Jolie's so we could drive to Red Deer together for Mud Hero. Mom, Dad, Wes, Steve and Lindsey were meeting us from Seba to run as well.

 We had SO much fun! A few new obstacles that last year - including a warp wall!! We all stayed together and helped each other along the way as needed and finished covered in mud and oh so happy! I could have layed out in that mud!! It's amazing. ha

Thank you to Jolie for being our photographer! :)

Miracle treat day is a must - we went a day early since I was not convinced we would see a DQ in downtown Vancouver and then we did!
Your yard looks great!
I will be here for Mud Hero next year - no way I will miss it again and there was great weather for it :)

You have been having an awesome summer with the kids! I wish the outside of the wading pool wasn't so darn slippery! Mud Hero looks like so much fun! How long did it take to get all the mud off?

We had DQ this week, too, as a birthday treat for Phi's birthday as it's his bday today. I so could not do that mud hero race. I have a sensory issue with being dirty so just thinking about being covered in mud makes me honestly cringe! But it looks like a fun day!!

Oooh I can't wait to see more of your backyard!
I want to do Mud Hero with you next year, haha! I have no reason not to be in town that day :) Do you drive home all muddy? I mean, I'm assuming they have firehoses/hoses to spray down, but that's not the most fun ;)
