God Bless Landyn


Happy Monday everyone! It’s hard to believe that this awesome weekend is over already. Kind of makes me a little sad. I’m sort of looking forward to the next two weeks but again, not wanting to wish the days away!

The weekend passed by in a blink! Friday evening was spent putting new furniture together by Dad and Ryan. Mom and I tried to help too but were more in the way so we went and picked up pizza instead!

Saturday morning Ryan and I were up with the birds and headed to Pembroke for the 2nd annual Snowmobile Ride of Dads. Ryan attended it last year all by himself because it was something we felt strongly about. I agreed to go with him this year as his passenger.

The army was out in full force for safety reasons and to support the cause!


All 180 snowmobiles lined up and then hit the trails to Chalk River. There, we had a yummy (and warm) lunch then detoured back to Pembroke.

Once back they handed out the door prizes and announced the total of what was raised. This year we raised $60,000!! All going towards prostate cancer research!

We loaded up the sled and then headed to Ryan’s parents place for supper! It was special supper because his Aunt Lynn, cousin Michelle and the two girls Charlotte and Amelia came from North Bay for a visit!

The girls surprised us with a fashion show before supper.


We celebrated Bev’s birthday, ate delicious stew and Ryan and I got our butt’s kicked at Rummoli!

Sunday morning I was off to church and then headed to another church for a very special baptism!

Evan and Josee had invited us all to watch the baptism of their baby boy, Landyn. It was a great service and yummy luncheon afterwards but the best part was being able to watch this important step in Landyn’s life!

So looking forward to many life milestones with him down the road!!

It was a whirl wind of a weekend but I am so thankful to have today off! I feel rejuvenated, rested and ready to take on another busy week!

Happy Monday!
