Perhaps the biggest event of this year so far has been a visit from Aunty Shelly and Granny. They came in the middle of September to see our new home in Oregon and spend some time Jack and Ellie, which they haven’t done since June 2016.
Well, we didn’t waste any time. Since Ellie had started school, Jack got to spend some special one-on-one time with Granny and Shelly. We did a fair amount of wine tasting, exploring Portland, activities like bowling and eating out.
Jack has really been coming into his element since turning three. He’s definitely come to be known as a “goofball” or a “joker” and I think that these photos really prove that out.
In these three months, Jack laughed and played a lot. In fact, he played so hard that he also fell from the play equipment at the park and gave himself a black eye/nose/cheek/lip. He really took it like a champ though.

One of Jack’s favourite books is “Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site“, so when he was offered the opportunity to reuse one of Ellie’s former Halloween costumes and be a construction worker, he jumped on the opportunity.
Despite saying that he was a “construction site” for Halloween, he looked adorable and we were blessed to live in an amazing neighbourhood for Halloween and the kids had an amazing time together. Continue reading “Halloween 2017”
With our move to Portland coming up very quickly, we’ve had little time to update the site of late. So, rather than neglect to provide an update, I figured I’d do a quick compilation of the best pictures of Jack that we have from the past month.
