Scenes from the weekend

The sun shone on us all weekend. We were outside a lot, and very little housework got done. Sometimes that's just the way it has to be! The boys gave away apples for Scouts Canada's Apple Day on Saturday morning and were very excited when my mom and dad turned up to support them in their first Beaver fundraiser {how cute are they in those uniforms?} In the afternoon, Alan and I took them to the Blackberry Tea at St Mary's Church hall. I wish my grandpa could have been with us. Blackberry pie was his favourite, and the tea was a tradition we enjoyed together for many years. From now on, I'll go in his memory, and my grandma's, too. I think they'd like that.





Sunday was the Run for the Cure, and it was perfect. What an absolutely gorgeous morning to get all decked out in pink and raise a hell of a lot of money {half a million dollars at the Victoria run alone!} for a very worthy cause. The best part was the text I got from Em as I was waiting at the start line. Even if it meant I started the run in tears... We had fun, and enjoyed the crowds and the music, and the overwhelming sea of pink! I was proud of myself, and it felt so good to see my mom, Alan and the boys cheering for me as I crossed the finish line.





It was the last weekend in September and you could tell. The leaves are beautiful and there are pumpkins everywhere! Fall is here, and I'm so glad. It's my favourite.




Happy First of October, friends. Here's hoping it's a glorious month, full of all good things.
