Happy birthday to Canada (and me!)

I love long weekends!
Especially Canada Day long weekend.

My birthday + Fireworks= Happy Danielle! I'm pretty sure my parents had me convinced tat the fireworks were for me until I was old enough to wonder why all these people that I didn't know were at my birthday party!

We had a pretty chill weekend. On Friday I went to Fernie with my mom and sister for my cousin's grad. Before we went to Fernie, I went to crossfit to do my final measure-in (?) and Fight Gone Bad workout to finish off the Paleo challenge. I was super happy with the results of both and I promise I'll have a post up tomorrow with my results.

Saturday was great, Will and I hit the farmers market in the morning. We ended up getting eggs, pickled carrots, and a smokey honey garlic salsa (that was paleo, yay!) that I'm super excited to try out on chicken this week. We got to go for dinner with Will's brother and his fiancee, we went to Pedal and Tap in Kimberley and it was seriously amazing. If you are ever in the Cranbrook/Kimberley area, it is the place to eat!

I woke up on Sunday morning at 6:00, and I had the urge to go for a run, so I jumped right on that! I went out for a quick 5km with the dogs, and it felt great!!

We spent the rest of the day hanging out with Will's family, and going to his parent's place for his grandpa's 90th birthday dinner.

I woke up early on Monday and couldn't go back to sleep- did I mention I'm like a 5 year old when it comes to my birthday? I just love it!! When I finally got Will out of bed we went out for breakfast, then went for a quad ride with my parents. It was a gorgeous day, so we stopped at a creek for a quick cool off before riding home.
My Willy!

We had birthday dinner at my parents place with my family, Will's family, my gramma, my aunt and uncle, and a bunch of friends! Baby Eli was there too, so that was super exciting.

We ended the day by driving into town to watch the fireworks- a perfect ending to a perfect long weekend!!
I hope everyone had an amazing long weekend!!
