Oliver went through a phase recently where he wanted to create Play Doh models of all the characters he’s grown to know and love. On this particular day, he was creating models of Angry Birds Rio characters. It is so much fun to see your son be creative and even better to be able to […]

It’s no secret that Oliver loves his treats. He doesn’t have more than the next kid but on some days, it feels like that’s all he’s eaten. So when Oliver’s mouth and lips turned blue from eating a lolly pop, and stayed blue for most of the day – I couldn’t help but make a […]

Oliver and I had a blast going to the Toronto International Autoshow a couple of years ago and we decided to make another trip this year. I am a sucker for looking at all the new models of vehicles they have out and Oliver loves to climb in and out of all the cars/trucks/SUVs he […]

Dana was out one afternoon and Oliver and I decided to goof around a bit (are you seeing a theme here?) with some props and the camera. We dressed up, we made silly faces and oh did we laugh! A great way to spend an afternoon. *note: most of the photos taken of me in […]

Oliver’s school had a Valentine’s Day dance for parents and their children. Oliver was super excited to go because his girlfriend Lily was going to be there. So, we went with Oliver and sure enough, things didn’t play out the way Oliver would have liked. Lily ended up not being able to make it and […]

As you can tell by now from this blog, Oliver and I goof around with the camera quite often. Whether it be one of our lazy Sunday mornings or another day, we like to make photographs of each other. On this day, we decided to take a couple photos of his Disney Infinity characters, Mr. […]

Dana is training to be an Interior Decorator and she really wanted to go to the Toronto Interior Design show this year. So we packed up the car and all three of us went to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre to check things out. It was great because the show had something for everyone. I […]

For Christmas, I found a little Lego digital camera for Oliver. It’s called the “nanoblock lego camera” and it has little Lego pieces that you can use to customize the camera. It doesn’t have a display on the back, nor does it have very good low light capabilities but it was a fun little surprise […]

Our second of two Christmases happened on Boxing Day this year at Grandma and Grandpa Connell’s house. Unfortunately, we were all still fighting off colds, and I came down with the flu which really put a damper on things. We took some photos of Oliver opening his gifts but then the camera got left in […]

Christmas this year was overshadowed by the Ice Storm that we went through at home. With the destruction of so many 100-year-old trees; the loss of power for seven days; and the damage done to our house, it was hard to get in to the Christmas spirit. Luckily enough, Oliver’s Christmas was quite a great […]

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 […]

We went to the Bramalea City Centre again this year to have our annual family photos taken with Santa. The previous year’s photos can be seen here, here, here & here. It’s continued to be a good gauge as to how big Oliver is getting. It’s easy to overlook how much your son has changed […]

Continuing with the theme of the last post (i.e. Star Wars), Oliver wanted a Star Wars themed birthday party this year. So we had Star Wars themed decorations, games, cupcakes, presents and loot bags. Oliver invited some of his school friends over to play and enjoy the birthday celebrations. It was a lot of fun […]

Oliver has been obsessed with Star Wars for quite a while now. It should come as no surprise that he wanted to be Luke Skywalker for Hallowe’en this year. Dana, the wonderfully-obliging Mum that she is, dug out her old Princess Leia costume (why have I never seen this before?) and dressed up with Oliver […]

Took a few photos of Oliver in the front yard. Was testing a old film camera with some Ilford Black and White film and decided to make a few photos using my DSLR as well. Love these quick and fun snaps of Oliver just being a kid. These are some of the best memories that […]

We took our annual trip to Downey’s Farm where we took some photos in the pumpkin patch and enjoyed the afternoon as a family. We’ve done this every year since we had Oliver and it’s a great tradition. We always have a fabulous time and there is so much to do for both the kids […]

We took a much needed family day and went to Wasaga Beach for some fun in the sun. Oliver thought it would be fun to bring all of his Smurfs figurines and luckily none were left behind in the sand. It was a great day with very few photos taken (we just brought Dana’s camera) […]

–Part three of three– Here’s the last post of images from our cottage vacation this past summer. As you can see from these photos, we had some fun in the boat, took some photos of great textures and colours, found a really cool cross-section of a wasp’s hive, and did a little work too. Dana […]

– Post one of three – We spent a week at the family cottage this year. It’s a long trek to get there (roughly 7 hours give or take) but it’s always worth it when you get to spend a week playing on the beach, fishing, eating outside, and reuniting with close family friends. That’s […]

It was a great summer for sports in our family. I’ve been playing Masters lacrosse in Brampton for the past 5+ years and this year I played for the Brampton representative team, winning the provincial championships for the first time. Oliver also played lacrosse for the first time and enjoyed it immensely. It was so […]

Canada Day is always such a big celebration day with us. We’ve been a part of the Rosedale Neighbourhood Street Party for a couple of years now – celebrating Canada Day with friends and neighbours. Oliver especially loves it because there are so many fun activities for the kids to do: jump on the trampoline, […]
