It was after 11pm on the Easter Long Weekend. My ringer was off, so it wouldn’t wake the boys, but I could hear the quiet vibration as my iPhone started to ring. The call display showed that it was Linds, … Continue reading
It’s my brother’s birthday today. He’s the best brother I could ever ask for, and the best Unk to his nephews.
The contest theme for this week is Orange. Which is perfect timing since I just managed to finish up on my client sessions and spend some time editing our family Halloween pictures.One of our annual traditions, is a trip to the Pumpkin Patch at Galey Farms. We’ve been going since Tadpole’s first Halloween, and this was the first year that he’s actually really enjoyed himself. Unk and Winnie came with us, and we all had a great time. Part of the contest rules state that we’re only allowed to enter one photo, so Mister helped me choose this one.
If you’re interested in seeing more from our visit to the patch, check back tomorrow.
It’s magic for so many reasons. I can’t explain enough, just how much I love Christmastime… and then we added a Tadpole to the mix and it got even better! Here’s our 1st Christmas morning as a happy little family…
Last weekend, Mister and I met up with Unk and Winnie and we all took Tadpole out skating for the 2nd time. At less than 23 mo’s old, I just can’t get over how much he LOVES to go to the arena and go skating! He’s improved so much in just two outings… his little ankles are already strong enough to support all of his running around the arena lobby in his adorable baby skates.
On the 3rd Sunday in November, we trouped up to Grumpy & Granny’s for breakfast, and our annual Xmas tree hunt. The weather had been horrible since returning from Mexico, but it held out the entire time we were up island. Tadpole was a bit unsure at first, wandering around through all of the trees, but he liked it soon enough, despite falling down more times than I care to count… but I guess that’s bound to happen when your gum boots come up past your little knees.
I figure it’s about time I do a little catch-up blogging… A few months ago, Tadpole had some playtime at the park with his Unk and Winnie. He loves playing outside… and I love being able to catch memories like these:
Unk bought Tadpole his first pair of skates when he was less than a year old… and his first helmet for his 1st birthday. But it took us until Thanksgiving weekend to actually get him out on the ice. Boy, was it ever worth the wait!!
