I love love love long weekends. The extra day off (ok, well only off for Tyler) allows us to get way more done around the house AND have a little bit of relax-time!
Friday: I took Wes to Crossroads Market. I had never been to this farmer’s market before and was excited to see what they had to offer and how they compared to the others in Calgary. PLUS, Tyler messaged me saying he saw an ad in the paper that Taber corn was back! Yum..local corn= THE BEST. I ended up getting a bunch of corn, chocolate chip cookie dough fudge, BC peaches and some bison burger patties.
Tyler made steak for dinner and all was well with the world.
Saturday: We headed down to Inglewood for Sunfest. It was awesome weather and I was really excited for the three of us to get out of the house together, but the fest was the same as every other one we’ve been to before so we only did a quick lap and left. We attempted to have lunch at one of the restaurants, but they had no more shaded seating.
We opted to head to Craft for lunch. We were practically the only people in there which was for the better since Wes decided to be a bit vocal. I’m guessing if the place was full no one would have noticed, but we were able to grab lunch and a beer and get out of there in under an hour.
The sun and the afternoon beer knocked us both out, so Tyler and I took turns taking naps when we got home. I also managed to do my workout before we settled down to watch a couple episodes of True Detectives.
Sunday: Tyler had daddy duty while I headed out to Canmore with Susie to hike Ha Ling. Funny story: we did this hike in August of last year and I was a few weeks pregnant and had no idea! Explains the fatigue. This time, it was MUCH easier to climb. I think it’s about 2.5 miles and 2,500 ft climb? Something like that. Beautiful view at the top.
As we got towards the top- there’s a portion of scrambling and you can see and hear people having difficulty with their footing since it can get a bit tricky. The really brave will shuffle their way down (not my cup of tea since my center of gravity is pretty high). A few passed us as we were still climbing and one girl was gaining so much speed she lost control and totally face planted right in front of us. She was covered in dust and had scrapes all over her arms and legs and we quickly went to help her up. The excitement/fear of the fall caused her to freak out and she was convinced she broke both ankles, but we tried to calm her down and eventually her friend caught up and assured her she was fine. A) That was scary B) I tried to cheer her up by mentioning that her manicure still looked great.
When I got home, we had bison burgers for dinner and watched a few episodes of Ballers. (Anyone watching this? I love it!)
Monday: I made Tyler chocolate chip pancakes then handed him the baby so I could do my 21 day fix extreme workout for the day (1 of 2 since I didn’t do the designated workout on Sunday. Had to double up!) We did a ton of house-stuff, I took Wes for a long walk, did my second 21dfx workout, took the dogs for a long walk, then ate a fajita wrap. The end.
How was your weekend?
I ALWAYS order the fish tacos at Craft. So good!
I’ve never been to Sunfest, nor have I hiked in Canmore. I kind of suck at living in Calgary 😉
It’s my go to when I can’t make up my mind. Don’t hate it! haha
Gorg hiking photos!!
I want to go to Craft. Looks like a great weekend.
You’d like Craft. Lots of good and different beers. A bit pricey for some of them though
sounds like a really nice weekend! love that you guys keep so active with a baby. That last picture of him is amazing!
Oh that hike looks awesome! I totally want to do it. I watched the first two episodes of Ballers when I was visiting my mom, but we don’t have cable so not sure when I’ll be able to pick it back up, but I liked it so far!
Do that hike! It’s really fun and the view is worth it. Bring lots of snacks/water for the top!
I haven’t been to Craft in Calgary yet! I drink beer now so I should probably go soon.
I haven’t heard of Ballers, but it’s HBO so it must be good! I need a new show to watch.
Craft is pretty good. I wouldn’t go there if you’re looking to be social, kind of a dud. The food/beer selection is on point and if you get a good bartender they can help you pick!
