Wow...we have been busy! Who isn't though?!

Lots and lots of taking photos and therefore lots and lots of editing. Did a last minute wedding yesterday and have an engagement session downtown tomorrow night...I like to be busy but I still do need to find a bit more of a balance:)

I know once I get to November/December/January it will slow down so then I will have more/some down time:) It's just `easy' to work now with Gary home to help out so much.

Today I ran the Tynehead Perimeter Trail with Ali. It's supposed to be 4.8km so we did an extra 200m to make it 5km but it seemed like it was less than 5km. Oh well, still an awesome half hour run! I loved doing the 6 week program and it's crazy how I've gone from just running 1 minute at a time to running 30 minutes straight, no problem. The ridiculous thing is that after running 3 days a week for 6 weeks, I've lost maybe only 2lbs. I think my body is holding on to the weight until I'm done breastfeeding. It did that with Koen too. In the meantime, I'll keep wearing my maternity clothes?!

This evening we went swimming as a family. Gary has been great at taking the boys to the free outdoor pool a couple times a week. They were much better swimmers last summer so we're trying to get that back. Today Nya went in the pool for the first time and she loved it. I'm thinking we're going to have to take her a few more times as she has 3 different bathing suits. So ridiculous, I realize, but I didn't buy any of them!

Hope you are having a great weekend!
Love, Louise
