We’re home from our first official mini-vaca of the year. Highlight was Annika and Selena’s first every mini kids of steel triathlon – swim (wading pool) 10 meters – bike 100 meters – run 50 meters.
Annika proudly and successfully did the entire race unassisted, all by herself :) Selena (I believe the youngest ever Loaring to complete a triathlon)did the race with mommy’s help, walked the bike portion (wasn’t feeling her helmet that morning…) and both girls got awesome little metals! Such a fun atmosphere, and Annika’s super excited to do another!!
We had some good family time at the cottage – lots of trampoline time, rock picking (inherited their love of rocks from daddy), fruit-stand and cupcake shopping with auntie char, and blueberry picking. We also went to the inaugural colchester villagefest, played at the park and splash pad and got an underwear full of mucky sand after playing in the waves down at the beach.
I think we’ll all sleep well tonight!

hard-core blueberry picking action!
Mavie loves the view!
Selena was in the third wave, and Annika fourth wave

Fruit-stand outting with auntie
with a special treat, too!
She really likes cupcakes….out of 50 different choices, she told the painter the cupcake was her favourite!
