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!

Easter hike

Yesterday the boys and I escaped to Crystal crescent for a nice walk and time at the beach. It was a beautiful day – the first day we have had where you can really believe spring is on its way.

We have swam here before but never hiked. We walked and scrambled over the rocks along the shoreline for a while, looking for sea glass and sea creatures in the tidal pools.

After a while we stopped and ate our lunch on the rocks.

We sent daddy a selfie to make him jealous.

We walked the trail back.

And then we just enjoyed the main beach, looking for more sea glass and listening to the waves on the shore.

It was such a soul-feeding time. Ore than once Oliver said, “I love nature!” as we were walking, so I think even they were feeling the sun and warmth seep into their bones.

Pockwock Falls in Spring

This is becoming my new favorite spot!

The boys and I went to pockwock falls in the winter, but this time we took daddy and eleanor too because the trail in was mostly clear of snow.  And this time there was a ton of water coming over the falls!  20170415_134336It was a warm day so we packed a picnic lunch and hung out for a while!  20170415_130118The only thing better than a picnic lunch is a picnic lunch in a hammock!  20170415_130528
The only thing better than a picnic lunch in a hammock is having a picnic lunch and sharing a hammock!   20170415_133753

This time we followed the path upstream a bit. ¬†I love these woods – mossy and¬†big boulders. ¬†I’d love to bring a fishing rod back here soon!
