In August, Aunty Nicola and cousin Max were kind enough to visit us from England.
It really felt like a long trip, because we did so much every day that we really made the most of our time.
There was a jetboat ride on the Willamette, wine tasting, waterfalls, beaches, mountains, lakes, roses, playing around, snuggling, barbecues, stories and more. Continue reading “A visit from Aunty Nicola and Max”
One of Jack’s favourite books is “Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site“, so when he was offered the opportunity to reuse one of Ellie’s former Halloween costumes and be a construction worker, he jumped on the opportunity.
Despite saying that he was a “construction site” for Halloween, he looked adorable and we were blessed to live in an amazing neighbourhood for Halloween and the kids had an amazing time together. Continue reading “Halloween 2017”
As autumn gets into full swing, we still made sure to get out of the house, rain or shine. Continue reading “October – November 2017”
We spent a lot of time exploring Oregon during the summer and making the most of the nice weather.
Marti, Ellie & Jack also enjoyed a trip back to Florida, while I had to stay back and work. Continue reading “June – September 2017”
Well, it didn’t take him long. I would have put good money on Jack being the first to break a bone, but what was perhaps more surprising was that he wasn’t horsing around or doing something he shouldn’t. In fact, he came to break his arm at the hand of Ellie.
Ellie and Jack were having a… disagreement, and in the course of events, Jack came to fall off of the bench that they were both on perhaps (definitely) because of Ellie’s hand that pushed him off of it. Continue reading “Jack’s first broken bone”
So much are we loving life in Oregon that we haven’t stopped for an hour or more to be able to put up a few pictures. But with Marti away for the weekend and winter setting in, I’m taking the opportunity to catch up.
Here’s a variety of photos from April to June this year. Continue reading “April – June 2017”
As was the case in January, it’s been a bit manic lately with our move to Portland, so we haven’t had much time to do updates on the website here.
But, rather than deprive you all of Jack’s cuteness, here’s another little compilation from the last couple of months. Continue reading “February – April 2017”
It turns out that Jack knows a lot more body parts than I thought.
Watch him adorably show me where his body parts are with fairly good accuracy. Continue reading “Jack’s body parts [VIDEO]”
There haven’t been many updates lately because we’ve been busy moving to our new home in Portland, OR. Expect more about that in another post later.
The other day, we had the difficult task of going to a wine release party at one of favourite local wineries. The kids were so well behaved and let us enjoy ourselves and while they were there, they meet there resident dog, Sigmund. Continue reading “Doggy? Doggy! [VIDEO]”
With our move to Portland coming up very quickly, we’ve had little time to update the site of late. So, rather than neglect to provide an update, I figured I’d do a quick compilation of the best pictures of Jack that we have from the past month.
