It has been a full and enjoyable weekend. It went a bit like this:
Saturday morning found me trail running with my cohorts. Thanks to L (pictured below) for organising and rallying everyone each week - it has really become a highlight for me. Quite something to be up and running by 0815 on a Saturday morning!
Saturday lunchtime found my family hiking up to Elephants Eye in the
Silvermine Reserve. Running has shown me so many beautiful places so I
am so eager to take my whole family and share the beauty with them. The
kids were phenomenal - they all walked (some wanted to RUN the whole
way....) with very little moaning and groaning. Lulu skipped, danced and
twirled her way up and down the mountain. It was a very rewarding
Saturday afternoon was a very special time for me. My dear sweet Lulu
at the ripe age of 7 went to a birthday party. For many years we have
had to graciously decline invitations (unless a VERY close friend) as
she just did not enjoy the unpredicatability of parties.
afternoon she went to a BOY party (she is practically allergic to
boys!) and dressed up like a pirate! I did not know my child - she was a
total hooligan and declared it the best party EVER. Cannot tell you how that made my day! She has another party next friday....much excitement!
Sunday morn found us hanging out with friends and then we slept Sunday afternoon away while the kids did whatever kids do when grownups sleep!
How was your weekend?
