Growing Out On A Limb

First Bike Ride

The plan was to bike to Hubbard’s on the trans Canada trail. We were heading there to check out the market that we have heard is really nice.

In hindsight it was a lofty goal, both for Emery who who needed many breaks and for me, who hasn’t really biked since I was a teenager.

But we biked about 11 km, stopping for breaks and chatting the whole way. The morning was beautiful, the trail was great, and the company was even better.

We got bailed out and headed to the market anyway. We enjoyed some coffee and treats and will definitely be going back… maybe next time on our bikes?

A Friday Night

This isn’t necessarily what I used to think of as a great Friday night, but it suit us just fine tonight! I looked forward to this all day.

A friend told us of this beautiful spot. We had some small success but will definitely go back another day!

Bluenose!

It was a great weekend for a couple of marathon events!

We started with the 2 km youth run, which all of the kids participated in – the boys ran with papa while Eleanor and I came behind. It was a beautiful day!

Eleanor was a little nervous leading up to the race and didn’t care for all the noise, but she took off running and finished the course running, so she got into the spirit of it after all!

And post-race ice cream just tastes better!

On a rainy Sunday morning nana, papa, and I took off for the 10 km race – papa ran while nana and I walked. (I am always amazed at my mom and dad and their energy!)

The sun never shone but the rain cleared off once the race started.

At the finish line…

And here we all are, feeling proud of our medals! It was a great weekend and a great event!

Video Games Live

A couple of weeks ago Oliver and I went to see Video Games Live… a mash up of the NS symphony and music from classic and current video games. It is a city by city tour created by a famous video games composer and I thought it was the coolest possible way to introduce Oliver to the symphony.

He didn’t recognize some of the older games (not did I) but he still enjoyed the videos and when I pointed out the different instruments.

It was high energy and a lot of fun, complete with giant bouncing pokeballs at the end. The symphony was amazing as always – it’s the coolest job ever, right? – and was super fun for both of us.
