Vacation Photos, A Video & Run Recap

Well that week went by way too fast! I'm blogging from my phone as we drive the 7 hours home from Saskatchewan.

Before I get into the recap... Here's a super cute video of London practicing his name. He's so proud of himself and thinks he is hilarious!! (<I agree!)

Jarod and I have spent a week at my Inlaws cabin, every July, for the past 8 years.  It's a great place to relax and unwind. The cell service isn't great and they don't have the internet so it forces you to be technology free (for the most part!)

We drove out Friday and arrived at the cabin Friday night. We spent most of the week playing cards, reading books, in the yard, on the beach and riding around in the boat. 

I ran 6/8 days for about 28 miles. It was nice to be able to get up and leave whenever I wanted because the grandparents were always willing to help. I usually ran after breakfast while it was still somewhat cool and the Mosquitos weren't as bad...

I also got to spend some time with my best friend and her family who live about twenty minutes away from the cabin. That was easily the highlight of my trip! 

We also:

1. Picked Saskatoon Berries

2. Roasted S'mores

3. Played Ladder-Ball 

4. Played in our friend's bouncy castle

5. Went on lots of walks

6. Celebrated My Father-In-Law's 53rd birthday

7. Co-slept Again

8. Visited With Uncle Colton

9. Learned To Honk The Boat Horn

10. Ate... A LOT!

It was an awesome vacation filled with lots of great memories. Here are some more random photos. (I know, photo overload!!) 

And, my favourite :) 

Hope you're having a great weekend!!! 


  1. Good for you for doing so much running while on vacation! I was off this week and did no workouts :(

    Looks like you had a great trip!

    1. It sounds like you had a great week too! Too bad we couldn't have planned to be in the same spot and hung out! Must plan a zoo day soon please!!!!!!!

  2. Aw, it looks like you guys had such a fun, relaxing family trip. Can I come next time? I'd like to play cards & go for boat rides with London. I could be his nanny? Omg this sounds so creepy. I don't mind.


    1. Sounds great! Clear your schedule for next July! Can I pay you in cheese ball and devilled eggs?
