Saturday am I was up bright and early for running club. It was actually more of a conditioning day. It was great, we did sprint intervals, these stretching/skipping/running things.... all in all... I really enjoyed it.
Saturday afternoon we went to Brett and Bonnie's place to celebration my nephews birthday. A few years ago, I started getting creative in how I give them money... and it just keeps going.
This year Bennett's money was embedded in soap and Braden got a money umbrella!
It's all in good fun and it makes it more entertaining than just giving plain old cash...
We generally have dinner, but this time we only had cake and drinks. Which is totally fine, but because we got there at 6pm, we hadn't eaten yet and we were starving by the end of the night. So we stopped on the way home and got a bite for the kids and us.
Sunday was all about the renos. Brad fixed the upstairs bathroom door ( decided to move the basement bathroom door upstairs and then just replace the bathroom door downstairs because it doesn't matter as much if this one matches everything), we worked and replaced the cracked tile in the front entrance... awesome. We then took out the old mosiac tile in the main bathroom and hit up Home Depot to buy replacement tile and a new door for downstairs.
I need to buy some artwork for the space at the end of the hall. I went to Michaels to check out their posters, but with the cost of framing, I think it will be cheaper just to hit up IKEA. I'm leaning toward this one because it will be an inside joke to us moving to Twickenham (named after a British stadium, home of English Rugby).
My Mum and Dad stopped by to wish Brad a Happy Birthday (birthday is tomorrow). We got to talking about what to do with the boys this summer as they will be taking care of them. Holy Crap. I give my parents a lot of grief, but they have AMAZING plans for the kids! They are going to take them to Drumheller to see the Dinosaur museum, West Edmonton Mall, Lower Fort Garry, Waterparks, Overnight Camping trips, Fishing, Canoeing... so cool.
My Dad is even going to build life size Kerplunk and Jenga as outdoor activities for the cabin!
I am affectionately calling it Camp Preston. We have decided tonot bring their DS's and ipods and just kick it old school this summer. Mum and Dad are talking about moving out to the cabin full time and even selling the house! That's huge. As of yesterday they were thinking of putting the house up for sale in the fall. Wow... talk about the end of an era.
After M&D left I got started on dinner. I had plans on making Taco Salad. But then in a moment of pure whimsy, I decided to make some guacamole to go with it.
HOW.... How have I never realized how easy it is to make guacamole? Seriously. It was orgasmically good. Will never buy guacamole ever again now that I know.
So another weekend in the books... and woke up to a balmy -17C.
