Weekend Adventures, Pre-teen Attitude and Meal Prep for the Week

Took the kids to Canada’s Wonderland last weekend on a whim, and took advantage of our season passes and the 19-degree fall weather. The day started off rocky with my pre-teen son being in a moooooood. But by the end, everyone pulled through and we finished the day strong with a few rides and funnel cakes!  We're excited to go back and experience Halloween Haunt in a few weeks! This coming week will be busy so I've pre-tracked some meals in my WW app to keep me on track.  A few things I prepped for easy grab-and-go meals: I made some WW Vegetable Soup. Baked some portobello mushrooms for a meatless main dish.  Made some hard-boiled eggs. Cooked some quinoa and chopped veggies to make some quick salads. Washed and chopped lettuce, cucumbers and peppers for easy meals and snacks. What's on your to-do list this week? On our favourite ride!

Weekend Vibes: Saturday Walks with My Crew

This weekend started like every other weekend around here. My husband had to work Saturday morning, we had no groceries, no clean underwear, and there was the all too familiar stench of boy farts and sweat coming from my son's room. Don't I just paint the prettiest of pictures?

I can't say I tackled the day's chores right away. Or the state of my son's room. But what I can tell you, is that I drank 3 cups of coffee, and ignored the kids for about 2 hours while I lost myself in my blog before I decided to get moving on my very glamorous Saturday morning to-do list. 

I'm sure you all have a similar list: strip the beds/wash the sheets, do 1 million loads of laundry, fantasize about living on the beach in Malibu with a gorgeous man servant who scrubs the toilets so you don't have to. Then pull yourself together, swear under your breath that you live with a bunch of effing wild animals...and promptly put off the rest of the house cleaning and toilet bowl cleaning 'till Sunday.

After I got that out of the way, I tricked my kids into coming out for a hike with me by telling them we were going to Costco and I'd buy them some ice cream. I softened the blow by getting them some hot chocolate before thrusting them out into the cold fall air for our brisk walk. Luckily they were so distracted by the hot chocolate they didn't complain too much about the walk. Overall we walked for over an hour, and they didn't really start complaining that their legs were going to fall off until the last 15 minutes. Overall it was a success and I already told them to rest up 'cause we're doing it again tomorrow! hahahahaha

Some highlights from our walk today:
