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 […]
We joke that Dash is Oliver’s little brother. Ok, I think we are only really half joking. Dash really is Oliver’s little brother. The two are so awesome together. Dash let’s Oliver basically do anything to him. Cuddles, kisses and carrying him around in awkward positions are pretty much the norm around our house. They […]
David and I got way back. “High school days” way back. He’s actually one of my oldest friends that I still keep in contact with. But it had been multiple years since we were able to get our families together and that truly is a shame. So when they were in Canada over the Christmas […]
An equally awesome day/evening was Boxing day when we spent some time with the Ruprechts. We opened presents, had a wonderful meal and even played Cards Against Humanity (sans kids of course). It was a fabulous way to finish up the Christmas festivities. Cheers! trevor.
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 […]
Every year we make it a point to go and see Santa at the Bramalea City Centre. It’s literally one of the only photos we get done of all three of us each year. I know, I know, I’m a photographer and family photos should come easy to me. I get it. But it’s tough […]
In early December, we celebrated both Oliver’s 7th birthday and Julia’s 9th birthday together with the rest of the Ruprecht clan. Since Oliver’s birthday is the end of November and Julia’s is the end of December, picking a date to celebrate somewhere in the middle of the month (before Christmas preparations get really crazy) is […]
Just a couple images from the day after Oliver’s birthday party. The one on the right I particularly love. Gives me a good chuckle every time I see it. Cheers! trevor.
Here are a couple of short videos that I took of Oliver and his friends dancing up a storm for Oliver’s seventh birthday. Cheers! trevor.
It shouldn’t shock you that Oliver is a rock star. He owns everything he does in only the way a rock star can. It was with this in mind that Oliver and Dana came up with the dance party theme for his seventh birthday party. Dana took care of the decorations (of course), the props […]
Oliver’s Grandma and Grandpa are excellent at providing yummy desserts for Oliver to eat. We went up for a visit to their place and to celebrate his birthday, then had a birthday cake for him, complete with sprinkles and other delicious toppings. Oliver didn’t disappoint by digging right in! He also got to do what […]
Hallowe’en is one celebration that ranks highly in Oliver’s books. I think he takes after his Mum that way as she LOVES Hallowe’en. As a boy, I didn’t really get that “into” Hallowe’en. I did the normal dress-up/trick or treating that most kids do. But what I remember most about Hallowe’en is being in a […]
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.
Here are two short videos of Oliver having some fun with us at dinnertime. 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 […]
