Family movie day today. I think the last time we went to the movie theater was when we went to see Beauty and the Beast last year. ❤❤ Love time together. Today we saw Peter Rabbit, and it was so cute!
Have you seen it? What did you think?
I don’t take these small moments of cuddling and watching movies. I had different plans for today but my baby has been wanting to watch a movie together so here we are indoors on a beautiful day in our pjs spending some quality time together. They don’t stay little long. Even though it feels that way sometimes lol they grow far too quickly. You have to grab the memories and hold them tight as they come ❤️ #alwaysmybaby#rainbowbaby
Today we ignored the cold crappy weather and headed out on a little family adventure. We pet sweet animals, went on a hayride, and capped it off with hot chocolate and donuts. It was chilly, but it was worth it! (SWIPE left to see more of our fun day)▪️ Vancouver peeps, next weekend you can experience your own family fun at @aldoracres ▪️ To celebrate the 30th anniversary, the Anderson family of @aldoracres farm is offering entrance by donation at their famous Easter weekend event, March 30 to April 2 from 10am-4pm.

There's a six year age gap between my eldest and youngest.
Like almost exactly 6 because their birthdays are within a week.
And I've watched this relationship grow just as I've watched them grow.
I've observed playfulness, frustration, fun, pining, joy, annoyance... But mostly, love.
They really love each other.
And this is simply the greatest.
When two humans, that I was a part of making, love each other.
Today I forgot for a moment that I was recording my workout. Most of the time, I try so hard to be so strong for my babies and my family and the truth is I don’t cry. I bottle up most of the pain I feel. Exercising is my outlet to calm my nerves, to let out those deep feelings I don’t know how to express. We are dealing with some pretty heavy stuff lately and the truth is I have been on the receiving end of a lot. I need a place to let the steam out so I can be here for the three most precious little people on the planet. Exercising helps me unload enough so I can be my best for them. So yes it was a raw vulnerable moment and I wasn’t sure I wanted to share it. But at the end of the day, I won’t pretend to be something I’m not. I’m just a woman, a mom, a wife, with a lot of pain trying to make it through each day a better person than yesterday. And fitness has been the tool I have been using to become that better version of me.
Everyday we’re each given a choice to be a role model. The choices we make change so much more than just our own lives!! If you know me, I love to imitate.. usually it’s to make people laugh or smile.. I can only hope that this life I’ve created teaches my kids to imitate... Hard work, dedication, commitment and perseverance and to know the importance of not only loving yourself but taking care of yourself!!!
