Father’s Day was once again upon us. We spent the day on the water up at Dana’s parent’s place. it’s always so nice to be able to get out on the water again. It’s like we wait an entire year for just 3 months of nice enough weather. Of course, I wouldn’t trade summers in […]

Back in June we decided it was time to clear out some of the junk old stuff we had in the basement and have a yard sale. Oliver came up with the idea that he wanted to hold a Lemonade Stand at the same time. Dana created a little cheat sheet of what change would […]

Oliver’s favourite cousin Julia had her 1st Communion a little while back. Being the good Uncle I am, I brought my Fuji X-E2 and a couple of lenses and took some photos for her. Not being an overly religious family, it’s interesting to attend events like this and see what they are all about. Congratulations […]

Enjoying another great day at home, Oliver was looking mighty fine in his Spiderman mask. He’s just so adorable when he uses his imagination (and all those facial expressions). I can’t remember why he was wearing his straw hat while he was watching a video on the iPad, but it was a cute moment so […]

Oliver was expecting the Easter Bunny to bring him treats but he also got surprised with a few new Skylander toys. The Easter Bunny even stopped at Grandma and Grandpa’s house and left a few goodies in their capable hands. I love his expression in the photos below as he’s opening the gifts. Oliver’s Grandma […]

Oliver has been really getting in to Skylanders lately. Some of his friends at school have them and his interest has really been peeked by the characters and how you can “upload” them into the game. So the Easter bunny was kind enough to bring him a couple of new characters. In the style of […]

One of our new favourite burger joints in downtown Brampton is The WORKS Gourmet Burger Bistro. Even for the non-red-meat-or-pork eaters, they have some great food. On this evening, Oliver got so into his dessert (served in a measuring cup which is totally cool), that he was rockin’ out to the tunes while he ate. […]
