Weekend Recap

We had a long weekend here, a holiday Monday for Family Day.  The kids also had no school on Friday.  Q went to the YMCA for the morning but then I picked him up mid-afternoon so he could have a friend over. They finally got out to use the sleds.  E had been outside all day with his friends so by this time he was inside.

He also had a friend over, and he stayed for supper.  We ordered from Pizzaiolo, it was good!

Dave was away this weekend, so it was just me and the boys up at the ski hill. I skied with our friend Gayle all Saturday morning.  It was cold but the snow conditions were pretty great.

This was our afternoon crew.

When we go home I had to change the batteries in the smoke detector because it was beeping.  And I had filled up the windshield washer fluid.  Look at me adulting without Dave around!! Haha.

We rested on the couch for a bit and then I made macaroni and cheese for supper.

Then I set up the laptop in our room and we watched a movie upstairs.  It made getting to bed afterwards easier.

We left early for skiing on Sunday morning because snow was expected.  It did snow but the roads were fine.

This is Q with one of his buddies.

Leftover pizza and leftover macaroni and cheese when we got home.  Do I look tired after two days of solo parenting on the hill!?!  It was early to bed for me.

On Monday we got to sleep in and take it easy in the morning.  The boys watched a few movies and I did some puzzles (crossword and jigsaw) but also vacuumed and did laundry. 

We went to Tim Horton's for lunch.

And then a walk in High Park.

As usual these kids did not want to leave the house, but then did not want to get back in the car to go home.

I wanted to go out for dinner.  There were a few places that were closed (since Monday is their usual night to be closed, even though it was a holiday) so we ended up at the Crooked Cue.

Then home for a somewhat early bedtime.


  1. You're way more productive when you're solo parenting than I am!!! We go out to eat A LOT!!!

  2. You rocked the solo parenting for sure!

  3. You and the boys did so many fun things! Haha, I laughed at how you 'adulted', well done!

  4. Looks like a fun winter weekend. I hate adulting things like beeping smoke detectors...haha I feel like they always start beeping in the middle of the night!
