Christmas LEGO village. // Alice destroying that LEGO village. // Big girl by the tree.
Another major upside of no longer living in Boston is the significantly less travel time it takes for us to get from Salt Lake City to my in-laws house in Edmonton, AB, Canada. Because Lee didn't come with us on our trip here over the summer, he hadn't seen his parents and family since last March, just a few weeks before Alice's first birthday. And with Alice's second birthday rapidly approaching and her ability to fly free coming to an end, we decided to fly rather than drive as we had previously planned.
So we flew here just in time for Boxing Day!
Let me start by saying that I had a wonderful time at Boxing Day. But it really did just feel like an extension of Christmas with a tree and presents and even Santa paying a visit. So I may not have figured out what that holiday is meant to celebrate but if family and drinks and good food are involved, sign me up.
Weekly Workouts: Monday - Run! Flats. 3.6 miles/27:37. Tuesday - CrossFit! We ended up doing The 12 Day of Christmas WOD instead (23:15 time; 65 lbs for cleans, sumo DL + high-pull, DL; 14 lb wall ball; 1 ab-mat for HSPU; 20 inch box, K2E). Wednesday & Thursday - Rest + travel days. Friday - Run! 4 miles/34 minutes. Damn, it's cold here.
