Weekend Recap

Our weekend was almost identical to last weekend.  We ordered food on Friday night and then watched the first part of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire since E had just finished reading the book.  When the kids went to bed Dave and I watched the movie King Richard (Will Smith movie about Venus and Serena Williams).  

I "slept in" until 8:00 and had plans of doing a workout or something else productive but instead I sat down to watch a movie with Dave while the kids were playing video games in the basement.  I then dragged them upstairs to get dressed and get outside for some skating.  The temperature was about -18 Celsius but the sun was out and it was actually a beautiful day to be skating.  The kids had a great time despite their initial protests. 

Taking a break!

Q is just learning to skate but he is improving each week.  Our friends brought hockey sticks for everyone and Q liked playing with the puck and his skating improved even more (but we're still not putting him in hockey!).


We stayed for over an hour, then home for lunch.  I got groceries and did some laundry.  I made French Onion Soup for supper which always takes awhile but is worth it.  After supper we watched the rest of Harry Potter. 

Sunday was Race Day for E on the slopes.   It was also perfect snow conditions and slightly warmer than it has been. 

E did well racing but didn't come in the top three.  It was really busy at the lift lines but we stayed after lunch anyway and did a few runs.  It was a great day.

  1. Now I want French Onion Soup! And I have been considering buying hockey sticks even though we also won't put our kids in hockey.
