merry christmas

Merry Christmas all!! Even though these are traditionally my shorter posts, I love that after six years, I am still here to wish everyone a happy holiday! It’s an honour to still be writing my blog and hearing from those who are kind enough to comment.

We were able to go on a few outings this holiday season. The first one that we took Remy and Wilder to was called Glow.

Glow is an indoor light festival located at Prairieland Park. This was its first year in Saskatoon, and I’m guessing will have many more to come. It featured light gardens, a treasure hunt, food, playground, Santa Claus, live entertainment, and over one million lights!

A little more on the expensive side, it was still worth going at least once.

Next, we were able to go to the Enchanted Forest at the Forestry Farm.

This drive-thru holiday light tour is in its 21st year and has over 80,000 visitors per year. Every year features one new display.

Visiting the Enchanted Forest is something that Geoffrey and I have done every year since dating! Remy enjoys it immensely, but Wilder is still too young to understand what is going on. This was her fourth time going, and his second (we took him last year when he was two weeks old). She has already asked to go back again, so I think that we will go once more before they take it down in January.

Finally, we visited the walking light display at Pike Lake Provincial Park on Saturday. It was our first time going and it was just so much fun! The weather was somewhat warm and the displays, although not many, were very well done. You could also go ice skating, play crokicurl, gather around the bonfire, and have hot dogs and hot chocolate afterwards. Too cute.

Our family seems to change with nearly every Christmas picture. From a beardless husband and two dogs and a cat in 2013, to hair extensions and masks in 2014, a first pregnancy in 2015, our first baby in 2016, a second pregnancy and miscarriage in 2017, and finally, another new baby in 2018. Life has certainly been exciting over these last few years! I only hope that we will continue to love, learn, and grow in the New Year. You as well!

Happy holidays, and enjoy your time with friends and family!!

img_6620Hey guys! You may have noticed that I took a little break from blogging. The fact of the matter is that I have a teething baby at home, and it took all of my energy to keep her content during the day. She recently went from one nightly feeding to waking up three to four times throughout the night. Taking care of her fussiness, all the while not being allowed to consume caffeine was exhausting. But she seems to be doing much better now, so I can return to blogging.

img_6623Last week we were able to steal some family time and visit the annual food festival that occurs in the city every summer. Over thirty vendors and sixty bands attend this event. Each restaurant generally offers around three of their bestselling and unique dishes. The idea is to go and try as many as you can.

img_6624I was boring and just got fish and chips from Joey’s. Geoffrey was a little more adventurous and tried dishes from Saskatoon Asian and The Canadian Brewhouse. We’ve gone to Taste of Saskatchewan a few times in the past. I wasn’t sure how it would be this time with a four month old baby, but Remy did amazingly well. As long as we’re outdoors and there are things or people to see, she’s a content little girl.

img_6618The weather was also really beautiful that evening. After grabbing our food, we went and sat alongside the river. There we watched the skidoos and listened to the live music. Afterwards, we went for a walk. 

img_6619I think that this was our first official outing/date as a family of three. I can’t believe that we have waited this long, but in reality, it doesn’t really bother me. It was such a special evening. I really do love my new family.
