Here’s a short video that I took of our first night with Dash. If you listen closely you can hear Dash purring for the first time. It was such a great moment for all of us. Cheers! trevor.

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.

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 […]

This is a short video of Oliver playing with his cousin at a family event last summer. Cousins are the best aren’t they? Cheers! trevor.

So, since there is snow on the ground in these photos, I’d say I am tad bit behind in posting these images. Ah well, here they are now. If I remember correctly, Dana got a new jacket/outfit and she wanted some fun photos of her walking in the middle of the street. Of course that […]

As a Dad, there are some things in life that you want your son to experience for the first time with you and no one else. When I grew up, the Toronto Maple Leafs were a staple in our household. If there was a Leaf’s game on, that’s what you were watching. Now I haven’t […]

Oliver likes to put together Lego figurines and pretend they are some of this favourite super heroes. I am sure there are Lego branded super hero figurines but this way is so much better in my opinion. Oliver allowed me just a glimpse of his imaginative world that he was building one afternoon and never […]

video short : how can you not laugh?

Ok so this video may not be for everyone. But Oliver was just too funny not to film. We were having a serious conversation about eating healthily and how you can’t just have sweets and other “treats” without their being consequences to your health. In true Oliver fashion, he decided to break out into a […]

Just before Christmas, Oliver’s class participated in their yearly winter concert. His class sang two songs this year. Even though Oliver was buried in the far back corner, it’s still fun to have these little performances on video. Cheers! t. Song #1: Jingle Bells Song #2: Santa Can You Bring Me New Teeth

Another summer was half way done and another Lacelle family picnic was upon us. Dana works hard to make this event a success every year. She also took these photos and as you can see, it was beautiful and everyone enjoyed themselves. It’s a great tradition to get everyone together at least once a year, […]

A few photos taken by Dana of Oliver. As you can see – Oliver is becoming more and more of a goofball in front of the camera. He loves to make funny faces instead of just smiling like the rest of us. Well – I guess who could blame him right? Cheers! t.

Oliver really can’t get enough singing right now. Here’s his version of “Pets” by Porno for Pyros…

Dana got a CD of classic Disney songs for the car. Oliver’s done pretty good at learning the songs. This one is one of his favs…

Another year and another Easter was upon us. This year, the Easter weekend fell on the same weekend as Oliver’s Papa’s birthday so we had two things to celebrate. So, we headed up to Victoria Harbour for another memorable visit full of good eats, presents and good company. It was such a beautiful day, we spent a good chunk….

It’s no secret that Oliver loves chocolate. I have no idea where he gets it from (Dana) but I would aptly call this post of images: “The Many (chocolate) Faces of Oliver.” I think you’ll especially enjoy his “growling” face…

Another set of fun images of Oliver and I goofing around. This time, we were testing a new lens, the Lensbaby Composer with Sweet 35 Optics. It’s a lens that allows you to tilt and shift your perspective to get some pretty crazy blurred edges. It’s a manual focusing…

I’m not really a morning person. Never have been and frankly, I doubt I ever will. But something that makes mornings a lot more bearable is having Oliver come up to our room and cuddle with us in bed. When he was younger, we never really brought him into our bed. Honestly, he wasn’t a baby that wanted to be…

Oliver continues to get better at writing his name. It’s still a work in progress, but he’s happy to try and we’re happy that he is just….trying. He certainly loves his chalkboard. He’s also getting better at taking photos of us. He has a hard time holding the DSLR and looking through the viewfinder (what 3-year-old wouldn’t?) but…

has been in swimming lessons at the Making Waves Swimming School for a couple of years now. He’s learning so much and is becoming so comfortable in the water that how can we not continue to enroll him year after year?
