proud moments

i apologize for the big silence yesterday, but our weekend was as full as ever! sunday both owen and i had races to run, and then off quick to a bday party, then zooming along after that to a bbq! i kind of needed the quiet yesterday.

we are actually headed away for holidays on wednesday night until the next week (wednesday) it's our first trip of the summer, and we're looking forward to seeing family. this trip we're headed to alberta. we aren't headed into calgary this time. (thankfully we don't have to deal with the flooding, but also i feel so much heartache for the devistation for the city...) instead we're flying into edmonton, but we'll actually be camping most of the trip i think.

as owen gets older, spending time with cousins is so very important.. and we live so far away from them! we're really excited to spend time with the newest addition to the family. owen's little cousin ethan. guys. trust me. he's cuuuuuuute! and has so. much. hair! i love it!

the fact that we'll be out at the campground most of the time doesn't guarentee me any wifi though to pop in for posts... so i'm not sure how often if at all i can be here... i do promise to take heaps of pics... and guys, you know i'll be getting epics amount of knitting done. a serious metric buttload of knitting. and here's an exciting point, a lot of this knitting i'll be able to show you!! wahoo!

my needles will be on fire! yes of course, i'll still be busy with other things, but i love that knitting is so portable and that with a lot of projects, i don't really have to look at what i'm doing.... so yippee!!!

but would you like to see my really proud mama moment from the weekend?




ever since i started running again, owen has been my biggest supporter, and encourager... and i couldn't ask for a better cheerleader. (apart from my hubby) those two are awesome. and when owen asked to run in a race, i was more than excited for him. i think he was kind of terrified at the sound of the horn. hahah but he did so well! yes. i'm a very proud mommy.

so today i'm trying to finish some projects that should be completed before our trip... and getting ready to pack some yummy yarn for other knits! what are you working on today? any exciting plans for summer travel? come chat! i've missed you! xo

  1. The flooding in Calgary is crazy isn't it? Our old neighborhood definitely got evacuated and I so wish we could fly back to help with clean-up! Have a great trip to Edmonton! ~Stephanie

  2. What a great picture of you and Owen! You look really fantastic! I think it's really neat that you started running again and that Owen even asked to join in and run in the race too! It's so great when kids ask to do stuff and then follow all the way through and finish it - so rewarding. I hope you have a wonderful trip! It sounds like a whole bunch of fun hanging out camping, knitting, chatting, fires, playing with cousins - wow it's going to be so nice. Enjoy!!! xox
