Wow. What a crazy week. I apologize for the weird order of posts this past week, but I have been pretty busy lately with visits both at home and away. We are finally back from our travels, so I wanted to fill you in on week 3 of the DSF 30 x 30 Challenge.
On Friday the Dreamboat started getting ready for his trip down south to Muskoka to help his friend M with a kitchen renovation. At the same time I was getting ready for M’s girlfriend L to come to our house with her little one LD. It was a pretty busy day, but Little Man and I managed some time outside in the backyard.
Because we are away from our neck of the woods for my Dad’s wedding (congrats Dad!), I figured I would pre-write this post just in case I couldn’t get a chance to write an update of week 3 of the 30 x 30 challenge. If you are reading this I am far away from my precious Mac. I will get back to reality soon. In the meantime enjoy THIS post:

Little Man was a lot more energetic, although this time there were no kids around to play with. He settled for watching some geese and goslings that were nested nearby (you can’t really see them in the picture below, but I promise they are there).
What a week. I was sick. Little Man had a fever of 103 degrees Fahrenheit on Monday, and general poopiness the rest of the week. And the Dreamboat had a huge project at work that took up most of his time and finally finished on Thursday.
We are all spread so thin right now I am sure we are translucent.
To fight back on the sick and tired, we tried our best to get outside as much as possible, even if it was only for a short time. I promised pictures and an update on week one of the David Suzuki Foundation 30 x 30 Challenge. Here is what happened: Continue reading →
