Ups and Downs

This weekend was a mix of highs and lows.
Saturday was Violet's second birthday party and we had a sugar fueled toddler rampage at our house. Jamie made sugar cookies and the kids all decorated them while the parents tried to keep tiny hands out of giant tubs of icing. So much fun. Pictures are on Violet's blog.
Sunday was 6 months since Oliver was born and we stopped by the cemetery to see him in the morning. It's a difficult thing to hear your child say hello to her brother through a grave stone.
Today was a beautiful Vancouver day with typical flaky West Coast weather. It was hailing at the Y when Violet and I finished swimming and by the time we drove the 15 minutes to the beach it was almost too warm for my hoodie. Spent the rest of the morning throwing rocks into the ocean and saying hello to seagulls. Violet leaned the new word 'creatures' to describe what you find when you turn over a rock at the shoreline.
The most important part of training is the recovery so now we're both off for a nap!
