I love summer...and I love you Uber H!

“Summer is kind of like the ultimate one-night stand: hot as hell, totally thrilling, and gone before you know it.” Cosmopolitan

Québec IS we learn to love it :)

But we DO summer with passion :) 

Here are only a few of the things I did this week...

Spent one whole day on my bike...(as did many others).
Short stop at the falls

We're all waiting to let the boats through at the canal

A stop to pick up fresh veggies at the market

A short break at the Fort

We went for a family run...13K
Me, my bro P, and my Super SIL 

Here we are surrounding my Uber H

A wonderful post-run snack

Running continues to rock and I am really excited! 
On the program next Saturday is a half-marathon (training run) and we plan on doing it as a family...I love that :)

Last, but far from least...I spent today at the spa with Uber H to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. Yes, we got married on July 4th...I thought that Independence Day seemed like the perfect day to tie the knot! :)
We had an amazing day!

I was 22 and you were 24 
You and I, we grew up together, we raised three wonderful children, who are now amazing adults, and I love you to are my rock and my soft place to fall!
Enjoying every moment!
Happy 4th of July!

Happy 30th wedding anniversary, Anne! It is easy to see why you had such a relaxing time in that beautiful environ: biking, running and spa.

I always buy fresh veggies at local markets!

Enjoy your half-marathon!

Happy Anniversary. 30 years is fantastic and you're still talking about him in pleasant terms. Congratulations.

Johann said...

Happy anniversary! 30 awesome years for sure! Running the half as a family will be fantastic! When I read your blog I always get reminded to be grateful for the weather we have here in Johannesburg.

Jennifer said...

Happy anniversary! Now that's a long hard journey that requires fortitude and patience, never mind this running stuff!


Happy Anniversary! 30 is such an amazing milestone! Congrats!

Not only did we get married on the same day, we were the same AGE! That is freaky!!

Love that you run with your brother... I wish my brother or sister were close enough to run with. I would probably chose to run with my sister because I could never see my brother running:P

Oh, and we have three wonderful children too ;)

Make it a great day!

I just noticed you are in quebec and was wondering what/ where is the half marathon you are doing? I'm going to Montreal tomorrow until Sunday and was trying to find a race to do. Any suggestions? (I realize Quebec is quite large though)

Jill said...

I could live in Quebec. In the summer. I think I'd have to slit my wrists if I lived there in the winter. ;)

Happy Happy 30th to you and Uber H - that is such an amazing feat these days to make it that long - how blessed you are!! :) :) :)
