Superhero Daddy!

He is indeed our HERO.  SuperDad without a doubt.
Everyday really... but this past weekend was extra SUPER for Dad.

Mountain bike racing for 24 Hours straight with 4 other buddies, no sleep.... 
Not sure how many years he has done this race but we are already looking forward to next year.

If you think this race sounds like no biggy... think again, it is, honest.
I've done it.... it was BRUTALLY hard (and I'll never attempt again).
A fun, HOT, dirty, busy weekend spent with biking families.
A few tantrums, filthy clothes, sunburns, and 57 juice boxes later... AWESOME!

Way to go Daddy Darcy, we are so impressed and so proud of you!

Cue lump in my throat.  I teared up here seeing him on course.
I can't help it, being competitive and seeing that smile was awesome... and this is on his last 30mins of the race.

I couldn't tell who was more nervous here for the last lap?

The Famous and selfless volunteer.

Exploring Reader Rock Garden

So very peaceful!
Reader Rock Garden is a wee oasis in the middle of a crazy busy city.
If you live in or near Calgary and have not been.... you must.  Simple as that.
My dear friend has been involved with this Heritage Garden for many years and we talk about it a lot.

I can see why she puts her heart and mind into helping promote and preserve this gorgeous piece of history.  It is heavenly and the story of this stunning legacy is one you really must read over.

Today Bean and I took a tour through the beautiful garden.  We climbed stairs, smelt flowers, found secret pathways and put our imagination to the test.  What a fun place to take an almost 3 year old who loves to climb, explore, and breathe fresh air.  I can't wait to go back and spend more time exploring. The Tea House there is quaint and classy.  It is officially on my list of places to take my Mom on a special date.  SIGH.

Oh how I wish I had a macro lens.

Project 365 in July ...

I've stayed strong and loved my Project 365!
One photo, everyday, all year long....
A few from July so far.

Clearly my favorite subjects are my boys!

So thankful each day for what we have and what we are able to do.
This world is becoming crazy, and busy, and oh so unpredictable.

I never miss a day with as many hugs as the day is long.

Happy July!
My favorite month of the year!
