A little of the weekend & Drumheller

On Saturday, we headed to Edmonton because our niece was having her 2nd birthday party on Sunday. In the afternoon on Saturday, I took Harley for a long and hot walk. It was so hot and muggy! The rest of the afternoon/night was spent hanging out with Mr.D's parents. Sunday was the birthday party, which included lots of little kids! 

Since I am off this week too, we decided to drive back to Calgary on Monday. Instead of coming straight home, we decided to take a detour to Drumheller. I had never been before, so I decided it would be fun to do while I was still on holidays. We got to Drumheller around 1pm and it was so hot out! We parked at the Royal Tyrrell Museum and did a quick loop around the pathways since we had Harley with us.

After that quick loop, we drove to the Hoodoo Trail. We expected a bit more of a hike, but it worked out since it was so hot and so many mosquitoes. This was a great spot to see the hoodoos.

Overall, a fun afternoon seeing something new. We will definitely be back when we have kids to go into the museum.

Five on Friday

{one} happy Friday everyone! My first week of vacation is almost over...not really sure where the days went, but it was nice not having to do anything in particular. 

{two} thank you for all of the anniversary wishes yesterday. We had a relaxed, but nice day together :) In the afternoon, we went out to Glenbow Ranch. It's crazy that it's ten minutes from our house and we had never been before. I think we ran into 4 people the whole time we were walking around. 

When we were almost at the end, we were coming up a hill and I thought I saw a dogs head...turns out it was a baby bear! We also the deer in the picture above on the ridge just watching us.

{three} for our anniversary dinner, we went to The Lake House. It was so, so good! 

{four} we are heading down to the Taste of Calgary today. We have never been to the one in Calgary, but have been to the one in Edmonton before. Hopefully it's not too crazy busy!

{five} have a fabulous weekend everyone!

Four years

It's crazy to think that four years ago we were walking down the aisle, saying our vows and celebrating our wedding day with our family and friends.

The last four years have flown by and it's crazy how much change is about to happen in the next year. Good change of course! 

Mr.D- thank you for being such a loving, caring, supportive, funny husband. I can't wait to see you change roles from husband/doggie dad to husband/doggie dad/baby dad in January. I know you are going to be nothing but amazing!

{baby d}: week sixteen

Just a friendly reminder that I am posting my weekly recaps a week behind

a rare regular clothing shot

Feeling: overall, pretty good this week. Headaches are becoming less and less, which I am so happy about

Workouts: my memory has failed me and I barely recorded any of my workouts last week. So let's just say I walked lots and got in a couple of workouts

Other: I had my 16 week appointment at the maternity clinic and got to hear the heart beat again! It was 147 this time (the last two times it's been in the 150's). Otherwise, everything looked good

12 weeks on the left and 16 weeks on the right
Looking forward to: our next ultrasound next week. Fingers crossed that baby cooperates and we can find out the sex!

Scenes from the weekend

Happy Tuesday everyone! I meant to post about our weekend yesterday, but got busy napping on Sunday night and then had a busy day yesterday. It's a good thing I'm on holidays now :)

{friday} on Friday afternoon, Mr.D finally got home from his road trip. Once I was home from work and we packed up, we were on the road to Alison's family's cabin for the weekend. We had a lot of storms rolling through that day, so the sky was pretty crazy on the drive there. 

We got there around 9pm, which meant just hanging out for the rest of the night. Oh and a swim for Harley! He apparently loves water and jumped right in. Silly dog!

{saturday} the morning started early at 7:30am and was on the chilly side. Once everyone was up, Mr.D and I made brunch. After brunch, the boys went out on the boat for a ski, so Alison, Delainey, the pups and I went for a walk. We ventured to a garage sale down the road, but I'm guessing all the good stuff was already bought ;) The afternoon was spent in the sunshine and competing in the Olympics that Alison's dad put together. It included kayaking/SUP, kan jam, washers, bocce and golf. I was paired up with Alison's brother Jeff and we somehow didn't come in last....still not sure how that happened even with my two of my golf balls going off the kids play house. Haha, golf is not one of my talents. 

Harley's first boat ride

The rest of the day was spent enjoying a delicious dinner, going for a boat ride {Harley wasn't quite sure what to think of it} and having a camp fire under the super moon.

{sunday} we woke up to a beautiful day, but unfortunately all that lake water meant an upset stomach for Harley :( After breakfast, we packed up the car and headed home.

Someone slept the whole way home!        

Thank you again to Alison and her parent's for inviting us to their cabin for the weekend! We had so much fun :)
