“Spring Break”

Switching things up with a walk in Fish Creek park between dinner and bedtime.

For a long time, I've wanted to visit Calgary's new central library. The girls and I went with my mom and it did not disappoint! What an amazing building. I love libraries and books.

Nothing brings me more satisfaction than making Conor pay expensive admission to places like a zoo. Haha. I love zoos and I really appreciate what an awesome zoo Calgary has. We really enjoyed ourselves! Extra bonus, we got special Auntie time with Conor's sister, Nicole.

On our Calgary trip, we prioritized getting out for a hike. The Cranmers took us to Troll Falls in Kanaskis country and it was perfect! I really enjoyed getting out in nature and this is me reminding myself that I'd like to do that more. I was really impressed at how well Maeve did and of course, Ira didn't fall asleep until the last 5-10 minutes. He was completely enthralled the entire time leaning his body so that he could see around my shoulder and take in everything around him.

We're at the end of spring break and it's been a surprisingly really great break! I'm really proud of Conor and myself for giving the girls a great time and some great memories. Conor took the girls mountain biking for the first time and then took them a couple more times. Holly and Greta had a couple play dates with friends. They cleaned and performed maintenance on their bikes. And we went hiking with friends. Next weekend, I'm going to drop them off in Idaho with their bikes and they're going to bike back to Spokane along the Centennial Trail. Conor and I are dividing and conquering and I often miss him by the time we get to the end of the day. It's a tricky balance having bigs and littles (and a Maeve island in the middle!), but we're doing our best!

Hiking with friends was really nice. It wasn't strenuous (although I was wiped out!) and we had a picnic lunch and a fire afterwards. It was one of those 1 hour hike, 3 hours socializing kind of adventures. And it was awesome!

When we arrived home, I changed into my pajamas, got into bed to feed Ira and didn't get out of bed until two and a half hours later. Ira and I snuggled and rested together and it was heavenly!
