But first, we watched the final hours of the Olympics - couldn't miss the men's marathon!
|Now, that's what I call finishing with a smile. |
Loved how Kiprotich was smiling non-stop for the last 1.5K when he knew he had the gold.
Speaking of smiling - my other favourite London 2012 moment was Tom Daley's team jumping in the pool with him after he won the bronze for diving. And how ecstatic he was to have won a medal.
Anyway - the Olympics was followed by family walk around High Park...
|Willow trees are her favourite.|
The next day, we packed our bags and hit the road. A few highlights -
We spent a relaxing day at the wonderful Bowmanville Zoo -
|Catching a ride from the lovely Limba. |
She gets to swim in the creek every morning before the zoo opens, one of the reasons why I love this place.
Back home for a serious workout enlarging and joining two corner gardens -
|The butterfly garden we planted last year grew bigger than we expected and needed more space!|
An IRL meetup at an amusement park with Deb, Spud and Sweetpea - on vacation following her stellar half-Ironman!
|Kids begged us to be horses for a covered wagon|
|An impressive web climber|
|What a nice son I have - he's so pleased with how absolutely terrified I am. |
The ride operator laughed at me when I got off.
An overnight trip to my mom's -
|STELLA WHAT ARE YOU ROLLING IN NOW??|
And our annual camping week with my cousin and her kids -
It's been a very busy and fun two weeks, but I'm feeling the effects of too much food and too little focused exercise. Better head out for a run...but first I need to tackle a mountain of laundry...
