Weekend Recap

Friday was my last day at work but I was still there for most of the day.  I was treated to lunch, wrote a few transfer memos, and made my rounds to say goodbye to everyone.  I picked up the kids from school and we had leftovers for supper.  

On Saturday morning Q and I skipped swimming lessons and we all headed to the ski hill.  We decided to put Q on some skis and see if he liked it.  He was excited to get suited up with his helmet, boots, and skis. 

We took him over to the bunny hill and set up him up on the magic carpet.  Dave jus wore his ski boots and guided him down the hill.

He did okay but did not love it.  He started saying "too tight" when we presumed was his boots.  I mean, ski boots are supposed to be tight, but he doesn't know that and it's not like you could reason with him.  Dave decided to try and get him some bigger boots, so E and I took off to do a few runs. 

We caught up with them after a couple of runs, and we tried getting Q back out on his skis.  He just screamed and said "too tight" and although we hate giving up, he was basically just torturing everyone around us (along with us torturing him) we we stopped trying.  We aren't sure if he just didn't like being bound into the skis, since he was walking around fine with just his boots, but he got it in his head that something was "too tight" and that's all he said.  Dave took him inside while E and I did some more runs before lunch. 

Happier guy inside.

So not a great day for Q (or for Dave who didn't get to do any skiing) but E and I had some great runs and conditions were perfect.  We will try Q in lessons next year and I'm sure it will be more successful once he understands a bit more.

We headed home, made supper, and then got settled in to watch Christopher Robin. We gathered together every Winnie the Pooh stuffy we have and they joined us. 

We let E stay up late with us to watch the NBA All-Star Skills Competitions, our favourite part of All-Star weekend. 

On Sunday morning we hit up Rennie Park for some sledding.  It was very icy but we found a spot that wasn't so steep and was pretty smooth.  It was really fun.

Home for lunch and a nap.  I went to get my haircut and when I got back, we went to the movies to see the new Lego Movie.   We weren't sure how Q would do but he paid attention to the whole movie, ate his popcorn, and alternated between sitting in his own seat, with Dave, and with me. 

We were full after eating all that popcorn so the boys had grilled cheese sandwiches for supper and I had scrambled eggs on toast rather than making a big meal.  I went to yoga and the boys got to bed at a decent hour.

Q and I began our Family Day holiday watching Paw Patrol (I read my book actually).

It had snowed overnight so when Dave and E got up we went outside to shovel, and then did some sledding right by our house.

We came inside to watch Planes and then did some tidying up, while E practiced some writing. 

After lunch, Q napped, Dave did a Pelaton workout, E played his video game, and I made muffins and meatballs.  

After some curling, we went to Terroni on Queen for supper.   We had a delicious meal and everyone was well behaved.

Ryder got in on some gelato.

Great family day weekend spent with my family!
