It's been a few months since I linked up with Katie, do I thought it was about time we celebrated a few marvelous things that have happened in my life over the past week


Celebrating 14 awesome years with my other half. We are so blessed, and we certainly don't ever take that for granted


Friday night we were finally able to take my mom out for her "Christmas" present dinner. We all got gussied up and went out for a prime rib dinner - it was delicious, and it was also a great time of fellowship together


Saturday was a little cool up at the cottage, so we took the kids to get some crafts for them to do - can you guess which one of them made


I was able to get out for 2 great runs with my MIL over the weekend...we even negative split our last km on our 10k!!! (Something I have never been able to do before!)


Yesterday for Father's Day Mike decided he was teaching J how to ride his bike with no training wheels...and it ended up being a in the afternoon, we even got to take a family bike ride along the beach


The kids decided that they were going to celebrate Father's Day last night, by creating memories with their Daddy - by taking him bowling. (Another first for he had never been before). We all had a great time spending the day together as a family - and slowing down to enjoy the "moments"

Thanks Katie for hosting today!

So tell me something you did this weekend

How did you celebrate Father's Day?

How old were you when you learned to ride a bike?


  1. Bowling is always a fun idea! Glad you had such a fun and eventful weekend!

  2. Saturday the boys did the yard (most of the work anyway) for Chris - nice because then yesterday we could just hang out!!

  3. Thanks Kate. Kennedy had wanted to take him to play laser quest...but we settled on bowling since J is too little to play laser quest...maybe another year. But we all had a great time bowling!

  4. It's nice that the boys are old enough to be able to do things like that. Hope you guys had a great day together yesterday :)

  5. I love that you ran with your mother in law! Sounds like an eventful wknd for sure!

  7. Boy oh had a "dad" filled day :)

  8. We had a great time - I see you got to enjoy the weekend with your daddio :)

  9. Ah shucks Heidi - thanks :)...didn't you just make my day!!! Although there were lots of tears, when he finally could do it - he was so happy and proud of himself!

  10. Looks like you had the perfect weekend! Happy Father's Day to Mike! I have not been bowling in years!!!!
