The Easter Bunny is always very good to us and this year was no exception. Oliver had a blast searching through all the clues and limericks the ‘Ol Bunny left for him to find some treats. As you can see from the last photo, Dash wasn’t too impressed Ha! Cheers! trevor.

Oliver and I decided to take a little walk in downtown Brampton to see what kind of trouble we could get in to. Since it was still early in the Spring season, our favourite Ice Cream shop was still closed (boo!) so we got the next best thing: SLURPEES! We enjoyed them in the square […]

More drawing and colouring characters. This time around Oliver was drawing some of his favourite youtube personalities from his most favourite video game: Minecraft. Not to be left out of the fun, Dash decided to get up on the fireplace mantle and strike a couple of fun poses. That cat never ceases to get a […]

Drawing and colouring are BIG parts of our lives at home. Oliver loves to create new characters, cut them out, and act out his own imaginary scenes with them. At any given time you’ll find literally hundreds of Oliver’s creations around our house. We love it! Here are a few photos of Oliver making his […]

Christmas Day is such a fun time at our house. Santa is always very good to us. We have a lot to be thankful for at this time of year. This year we spent Christmas morning at home, just the three of us and then we headed up to Oliver’s Grandma and Grandpa’s house for […]

Here are some photos from our annual trip to Downey’s Farm in North Brampton. We always have a blast visiting this place just before Hallowe’en and this year was no exception. Oliver had fun playing a bit of mini-golf, running on the hay bails, and challenging us to races on the large go-cart-type-tricycles. The afternoon […]

We’re cat people. There, I said it. I’ve always thought of myself as a dog person until I owned a cat as a pet. I was converted. Sold. So, when we lost both of our elder cats within the same year, it hit us hard. But we slowly got ready to become pet owners again. […]

Everyone that knows me knows that I love to eat. You can definitely win your way to my heart if you provide me with a good (ok great) meal. So it makes a lot of sense that when the organizers of the Food Truck Festival of Ontario announced that they were doing the event all […]

While we were at Wasaga Beach having a wonderful time enjoying the warm summer air, I took a few videos of Oliver playing. They are below. Cheers! trevor.

Our annual trip to Wasaga Beach as a family is always a great time. We pine for the beach a lot and we always leave wondering why we don’t make time to get up there more. We enjoyed the day eating junk food, building sand castles in the sun and swimming in the wonderfully warm […]

These two videos are really crappy quality-wise (I held the camera upright which is a big no-no plus there isn’t much light and everything is shaky) but I love the freedom to just “have fun” Oliver exerts. He makes me smile every day but even more so when I can look back on videos like […]

It’s no secret that we love taking road-trips. Long or short, multiple day or just an afternoon, it’s a cheap way to get out and spend some time together as a family. We sometimes have a destination, others we just get in the car and drive. On this particular weekend, we decided to take a […]

Just a few black and white photos of Oliver as he lounges on the couch. This was probably one of our sleepy, laid-back Sundays where we enjoy hanging out as a family. Cheers! trevor.

It’s no secret that Oliver really loves Lego. Santa was really generous this year and he brought the Lego Star Wars Ewok Village to our household. I’m surprised Oliver could contain his excitement when he opened the gift, let alone wait two days to put it together. I believe the set has a couple of […]

We always have some fun decorating our Christmas tree. It’s usually a two-step process over the course of a weekend: (1) we go and get our real tree and (2) we decorate it the following day. The last couple of years I’ve taken to capturing some of the moments with my trusty Fuji X-E2 because […]

We were a little late getting our Christmas tree this year. It was just one of those years where we got super busy the first couple of weeks of December and there was no time to get out and get one – let alone trim it. And with Oliver’s birthday so close to Christmas, we […]
