I love Saturdays...I love that its busy and chaotic, today was no exception.
          Todays Saturday went a little like this.

Up and to the barn for Miss. Taylor to ride. Two hours spent at the barn, led to a quick trip to the ER. Today was the first ever horse related injury. She got her foot stepped on by the horse she was riding today. No worries its not broken...but tonight she is still in a lot of pain.

While we were at the ER, Gary took Sophie to dance, she dances every Saturday for two hours. During this time I usually run errands go back to the studio and change her over from tap to ballet, go home unload groceries then back to pick her up.

This afternoon we had a lot of chores to do in the house to get ready for Sunday, fed the kids supper and they are off to bed. I am headed out for a girls night (so excited to get out tonight). 

Not a super exciting post but a post none the less.

Where to Start...

I can't believe that it has been so long since I last posted on my poor lonely blog. I use to worry that no one wanted to read what I had to say, that it didn't matter to anyone but me...and for some reason feeling like no one wanted to read what I had to say made be stop blogging. 

Crazy I know, but time has evolved and so have I and really the real purpose of this blog is for me and my family. If you stop by and read it leave some love. But really I one day want my kids to be able to go back and look at this and it be a history of our family.

Should I Blog....

Gunna admit I check everyday to see if people have blogged and feel dissapointed when they haven't. Yet I am the worlds worst blogger. Which leads me to think maybe I should give up my blog. But today I re-read some posts and it made me realise that I miss my blog and the memories I have written here that I had forgotten about. So some deep thinking and re evaluation and the blog is back. I want to make it cute so I like looking at it. And fill it with memories of our family.

If any of you have any favorite blog background websites, and can tell me how to add acute font please let me know.

Our first family Vacation

So we have done it. We actually went on and survived our first family vacation (that wasn't to familys houses) since the triplets where born.

We went up to Kimberley to stay in our friends condo. It was awesome. The 6 hour drive consisted of Luke pointing out every cow, horse and bird along the way. Seriously the kid didn't sleep so we got a recap of all the animals, if there wasn't animals around then we were informed of every truck that went by. Taylor kept asking when will we be there and commenting on the fact that we were in the mountains, then asking if we were still in the mountains. Livie tried to escape her car seat the whole drive and when daddy actually wired the clip shut she screamed the rest of the way. Darling sweet Sophie is my favorite traveller, she played quietly with her baby and ate her snacks.

On the way home we stopped at the Radium Hotsprings, where I was reminded that it doesn't matter how bad you look in your swimming suit. Some tourist is going to have an outfit/swimsuit combo that makes you look like a model. I kid you not.

It was nice to be able to go on a vacation with our kids, it was a reminder of how far we have come in 3 years. We were able to go on walks with out the wagon or the stroller, look in shops, go swimming with just the 6 of us. Spent time listening to our kids babble (and they babble a lot), and just kick back and relax and enjoy one another.
