out west.

We're in BC!

My idea of a vacation is to sleep in without an alarm clock,
eating lunch (that I did not have to prepare myself)
and going back to sleep.

So can I call it a vacation if I've been getting even less sleep than usual?
A little girl refuses to sleep unless she's literally on top of her mama
can be cause for some serious sleep deprivation...
At least I don't have to cook.
My girl.  Lover of fast rides and heights.

that kind of week.

The kind of week where the neighbour's dog wakes up Bean in the middle of the night,
and 5min after she's finally gone back down, the (false) fire alarm goes off for 20min
and it takes me the next 2hrs to put her back to sleep.
And then it goes off again the next day - during nap time of course. 
And I get two giant bruises from mom related injuries. 
And I get 2hrs of sleep on Thursday night. 
And by Friday, I'm contemplating drinking wine at 10am. 
So hallelujah for the weekend. 

Hope you have a good one!

the zoo part two.

Hope you had a good weekend!
I woke up this morning with a hangover... (?!)
Apparently this is what happens to me when I've had a 2 year hiatus 
from alcohol and have more than one drink.  
I just skip the buzz, the flush, all of it, and head straight to the best part.

But I digress.

We went back to the zoo this weekend.
I hoped that it wouldn't be too busy, since I imagined everyone out of town, at their cottages.
I was wrong.
All of the like-minded cottage-less people decided to go see some pandas too.
 "what are we looking at?"
Pointing at the pandas.  
Or maybe at all of the people who are blocking her view of the pandas.
(I feel the latter, based on that pout...)
You have to wonder where she gets that expression from.


Checking out the giraffes.
And the elephants.
It was even better than the first time because she was even more alert and aware, and was super excitedly pointing at all the animals.
She even went on the merry-go-round.  Which if you saw my Instagram video,
was about the best $3 we have ever spent.
Blowing me kisses.  I die.
I know this is turning into a total photo dump, but two more.
Because on the way back to the car, I took one of my favourite shots as of late (and maybe ever).
Perfectly epitomizes our girl right now.
I hope she stays this happy forever.

Ok, Now I'm done.
Thanks for stopping by!

it's friday, so we're having a dance party.

In the ever wise words of Liz Lemon...
"aaaaahhhhhh things are happeningggggg"
To say we're "busy" may be a slight understatement.
But it's Friday, it's the long weekend, and we are celebrating the fact that 
we are going to take a break, relax,
and calm the * down.

Now please enjoy a clip of our child grooving to her summer jam.  Waving a rag and everything.
It's in her blood I tell ya.

Happy Weekend!
