Weekend with Adele

This weekend was a busy weekend for Adele and I. With Don working on Saturday.. it was a mama and daughter day. So this is what we did...
Went to the beach and fed the birds - remind Swans are HUGE and are taller then child.. 

Beach is a much nicer place to enjoy the morning.

After sending text messages back and forth to my friend Andrea, she informed me that her and the kids were going to go berry picking! DONE DONE and DONE.. 
Upon arriving we discovered that it was a berry festival, so the girls got to enjoy getting their face painted while the older boys enjoyed the maze. 

Adele was a fantastic berry picker.. uhm I think to that more berries went into her mouth then the basket.. We had so much fun. There was also live music, and lots of entertainment for the entire family

Adele and Kara - they pretty much have known each other since birth, and it's always awesome to get the two girls together. 

Adele decided to demonstrate her artistic skills.. her  version of the Jolly Roger... arrrggggg

Sunday we watch little man Grayson! Adele learnt very quickly that babies are a lot of work, and was good experience for her, as her father and wife are expecting their child in Nov.

It was an awesome week and weekend with Adele.. it was very hard to let go this morning for both mama and daughter.. but in 7 sleeps she comes home and then we are off to our Alberta Adventure!!!!!

As some of you may be aware of, I will be partaking in Boomer's Legacy ride for 2013.
And to start fundraising I have decided that my ladybugs will become Boomer's Ladybugs. 
Which means for every ladybug I sell $5 will go towards the ride.  
If you would like to buy a ladybug, please click here  (Ladybugs sell for $15)

Also to help me get started and train for this ride, Goldstream Cycle in Langford BC is graciously helping me in this journey.  I am very lucky and humbled by the amazing generosity that these guys and gal are doing for me. 

So if your in need a bicycle for all your needs, these are the guys to go to. They will find the right bike and the right fit for you.  Whether your young, old or just starting to ride a bike. They will be with you every step of your cycling adventure!!!!

Adventure with Adele

This weekend was an amazing weekend with friends and my little family.

Here are just some of my favorite moments.

Adele the mighty fossil hunter!

She had so much fun.. and she wasn't afraid to get dirty or get her running shoes and socks wet.. normally this is a real problem!  Made mama very proud!

On a side note: This little event would have made my dad proud as well. I know that while she was searching, he was guiding her..
Maybe when we head up north we will take her fossil hunting..
