This past weekend, Marti and I took a much-needed trip away from the kids. On the second night, we got an incredibly sweet video from Jack as he was going to bed, telling us how much he loved us. It made us think how much we missed him, even though we were enjoying time away from the kids. Continue reading “Sweet pleas from Jack [VIDEO]”
We live in such a cool place. The local government puts on a Big Truck Day every year, where kids get to tour and sit in all sorts of big trucks, like cranes, dump trucks, fire trucks, garbage trucks and 18-wheelers. Jack was in Heaven!

In August, Aunty Nicola and cousin Max were kind enough to visit us from England.
It really felt like a long trip, because we did so much every day that we really made the most of our time.
There was a jetboat ride on the Willamette, wine tasting, waterfalls, beaches, mountains, lakes, roses, playing around, snuggling, barbecues, stories and more. Continue reading “A visit from Aunty Nicola and Max”
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.

Here’s a variety of photos from April to June this year. Continue reading “April – June 2017”
As was the case in January, it’s been a bit manic lately with our move to Portland, so we haven’t had much time to do updates on the website here.
But, rather than deprive you all of Jack’s cuteness, here’s another little compilation from the last couple of months. Continue reading “February – April 2017”
It turns out that Jack knows a lot more body parts than I thought.
Watch him adorably show me where his body parts are with fairly good accuracy. Continue reading “Jack’s body parts [VIDEO]”
There haven’t been many updates lately because we’ve been busy moving to our new home in Portland, OR. Expect more about that in another post later.
The other day, we had the difficult task of going to a wine release party at one of favourite local wineries. The kids were so well behaved and let us enjoy ourselves and while they were there, they meet there resident dog, Sigmund. Continue reading “Doggy? Doggy! [VIDEO]”
Jack is at the perfect age where he’s a lot of fun, likes to play and is exploring new things, while not being old enough to be grumpy for no good reason or demanding things.
It was a really fun, low-key Christmas. Continue reading “Jack’s second Christmas”
