Friday night we kept it low-key and hung out at home after work. Hubby made a delicious cedar plank salmon for dinner which we all devoured. Yes, even picky Audrey! Usually Friday is a rest day but I missed my Shred workout on Wednesday so I made it up that night.
Saturday I had a massage which was good but not very relaxing. Apparently my shoulders and traps are very tight. Guess where I hold all my stress?!??
After my massage we headed to Banff for the day. We bought a hiking backpack for Audrey that we plan to use a lot this summer. The sky looked a little iffy and we didn't have a rain cover for Audrey so we just did a short hike around Cave and Basin, which only opened up after being closed for a 3 year renovation the day before. It is the birth place of Canada's national parks so that's a neat part of history. It was a pretty tame hike- more of a walk but it was nice to get out and be in the wilderness.

Miss A fell asleep in the Chariot around 5K and rather than wake her (Never wake a sleeping baby!), I took the Chariot into Tim Horton's for our post-run re-fuel. It was a pain to maneuver and it was packed in there. She slept for over an hour which surprised me since she normally wakes up as soon as you stop moving and it was pretty noisy in there.
She did wake up after awhile, hungry as a bear and she quickly gobbled down the orange and carrot muffin.
Hubby actual ran home as part of his long run so we met him back there when he was done. We spent the rest of the day playing in the yard, doing our meal plan and grocery shopping and more chores.
Audrey's new favourite word is GO!! She shouts it at the door when she wants to go outside. She wasn't very happy when she was left inside with me while Daddy was out working in the yard. Unfortunately she just wants to dig in the garden and even had her first taste of dirt as she shoved a handful into her mouth. I actually think she liked it too!

At my request, hubby made some sangria. Yum!! Sangria reminds me of Barcelona, one of my favourite cities in the whole world. I may have had a few glasses there. Sadly, I didn't take any pictures of this deliciousness. I may have been a bit preoccupied drinking it!
Monday was a lazy no-plans day. The weather was gorgeous again so we hung outside again as much as we could. I drank some more sangria, hubby worked out in the yard and Audrey ran around where ever she was. That girl sure is busy!
Sadly the weekend came to an end BUT it's a short week!! Yay!!
