Weekends Together Are My Favourite


Disclaimer: Sam had a dandy night last night. He was up all night again so if at the end of this post, it doesn’t make any sense. That is why. I feel like a zombie.

This weekend was awesome. Why do the weekends that don’t have extravagant plans feel like the most special?  Even though the calendar doesn’t say it yet, it’s fall to me. It kind of felt that way too. The colder nights and rainy days made me bundle up in a jean jacket, sweaters and scarves. Fall has always been a favourite season!

The storms on Friday knocked down a few trees and power lines along the roads which made Ryan get home 2 hours later then normal. I put Sam to bed and then when Ry finally got home we had our Friday pizza. Ryan went to bed right after but I decided to stay up for a bit and have a “Movie Night in Beechgrove” by myself.

Saturday morning it as hard to roll out of bed because the rainclouds were making the house very dark and cozy! Once we all got rolling, we decided to go have breakfast out somewhere and grab a few groceries! It was the first time Sam was in his new car seat which was exciting but the start of a whole new phase. We had to bring him into the restaurant on Saturday and ask for a highchair….and they didn’t have a spare one available. So…we improvised and he sat at the table!

Thankfully, before out meals came out, a high chair became available! He loved sitting at the table and looking at the people in the booth beside us.

After getting our groceries we headed home. Sam went down for a 2 hour nap and Ryan went to the garage. What is a girl to do on a rainy Saturday? Well put on some comfy pants and get knitting! Ha ha! I turned on a movie and picked up my knitting needles for the first time in forever! I had a head wrap idea taken from Pinterest that I wanted to attempt.

Finally, I got ready to head out to the city with girlfriends for friend/cousin Stacy’s birthday! We ate at one of my favourite restaurants, Montana’s!

All was quiet when I got home and Sam continued to sleep all night until 8 AM! While Sam is an great sleeper, he is an early bird like his Momma and usually never sleeps past 7. I was sitting in bed wide awake so I decided to take a nice long shower while all was quiet. I guess someone had woken up because when I went back into our bedroom this is what I found…

My silly boys! ha ha!

We all got ready for church, headed to my parents for coffee and then went to a great service. It was a special one because it was my adorable new cousins first service! It was so nice to have Shannon and Rylie there! After church we went out for a fundraiser breakfast!

We put Sam down for another nap and got some stuff done around the house. We had to wake our sleepy head to hit the road to his Nana and Grandpa’s house for a visit and supper!

We had a relaxing afternoon sitting in the sun on the patio visiting with everyone and enjoying a yummy (and maybe last BBQ meal of the year) steak supper!

Grandpa with his grandbabies!

It was such a great weekend spent together and with friends and family! It’s a weekend like that, that makes me feel rejuvenated and ready to have a great week ahead!

How was your weekend?



  1. the head wrap was AWESOME...and if the last time you picked up the knitting needles was 7 years ago when you made Maddy a hat...well you certainly have improved!!

  2. Ha, ha, Stacy, can you hear me laughing? Now we want picture of the head wrap. Thanks, Lindsay, it was a special service with little Riley and Shannon there too. I think Sam looks a bit like his cousin Sophie, some family resemblance for sure. The weekend was great, aside from the scary storms and power going off. Best part was when Reg got home from Men's Retreat.

  3. Oh my god, that picture of the two of them in bed is HILARIOUS, I love it. And it seems like John has told Sam about his night routine! Hopefully babies start sleeping through the night again. I'm dying!

  4. Sounds like a great weekend! Can't believe he's big enough to sit in a high chair already!
