I was barely home except to sleep!
Friday was the quietest day of the weekend. Audrey and I played all late afternoon while hubby worked late. After a quick dinner of leftovers (thanks to dinner the previous night and a potluck at work that day), we headed over to the park to tire her out. She loves going down the slides and shouts 'down' when she reaches the bottom. She could go up and down the slide all day if we let her. We chatted with another mother who was out also trying to tired her kids out before bed.
Saturday morning I managed to get in a strength training workout while Audrey napped- Jillian Michael's Shred It with Weights that Alison lent to me. It was quite the workout! I liked the pace of it and since the workout called for kettle bells (I used dumb bells) it was quite different from the 30 Day Shred workouts which was a nice change. Let's just say that my hamstrings are still sore from the workout 2 days ago! Ouch!
In the afternoon, I left hubby and Audrey at home while I went to my nephew's high school graduation. I am not sure how he managed to grow up so quickly- I certainly don't feel old enough to have a nephew entering University in a few short months! It was a nice, small and intimate ceremony and I shed my fair share of tears! In some ways he is more like my little brother. I am so proud of him!

They went over to his parents' house since C&L were hosting a BBQ. I joined them when I was done at the graduation ceremony. It was nice to catch up with a few friends and family for a casual evening. Audrey was right played out and quickly fell asleep when we got home.
I started watching Something Borrowed (I read the book eons ago) but fell asleep close to the end. I was pretty bummed that I missed the ending so I will have to re-watch it. This girl just can't stay up late anymore!
Sunday morning we did not go running. I woke up ridiculously sore from the previous day's workout and I didn't think running was going to be any fun with super tight hamstrings. Instead, I did a yoga video workout from the SeaWheeze training app. It was actually pretty good- it's geared towards runners so I think it helps my poor hamstrings. I'm looking forward to doing more of their videos.
We had our goddaughter's 2nd birthday party at a children's play centre. Audrey had a blast! Even the adults had fun. There were tons of kids running around so it was a bit chaotic.

Yup, we managed to pack that all into 2 days! It was lots of fun but I definitely could have used another day off!
** On a side note- I know I've said it before but I really need to use the dSLR more often. I even brought the darn thing to all the events this weekend and didn't pull it out once. The iphone is so much more convenient but the quality just doesn't compare so I need to stop being lazy (and shy)!
