Birthday Party

We had fun at Bella's western themed third birthday party this weekend. They even got to pan for gold! I think that the juice box was Kellan's favourite bit though. Juice, the forbidden fruit, quite literally.

Another day, another trip to the park

At the Park with Carmen

Flying to San Diego of course. Kellan kept landing in San Diego, at which point Carmen would start chattering on about "Go Diego Go!". Very silly.

Try to get these two to both look at the camera and smile at the same time. Try it. I dare you.

Welcome back, Springtime!

Last week, spring returned. At last. These first photos are from the evening that things first warmed up. We spent some time outside getting all of the toys out, balls pumped, and bicycle tires ready for the next morning's ride.

Kellan loves this new sit-on bouncing ball thing. Weird, but good exercise. It exhausts me just watching him try to get around the yard on it.


Look at this face. A goal scoring face.

And the next day spring had truly set in. It was hot! And about time, too.

Ice Cream for a Sore Throat

We had a bit of a something going around the family last weekend. Sore throats. Not sure what it was, but everybody is healthy now. And, hey, it was a great excuse for two days of extreme ice cream consumption!

This is one of the "Car Buddies" that Kellan is currently working towards each day. Potty training. What else? We backed down a bit after a few very stressful days in which we thought we'd go all out and just "get it done". Didn't happen. Obviously. In defense of our lack in judgement I can only say that we don't get much sleep. So, Kellan goes as many times a day as he sees fit. We ask him to sit throughout the day, and if he does so without complaint, he gets a "Car Buddy" at the end of the day. He picks a new one each morning which sits in the bathroom as incentive. When we're out and about, he has special stickers. He's doing really well. Not interested in taking the initiative himself yet, no internal motivation, and until he gets that, we're only in training. Here's hoping that the real deal isn't too far off!

Happy Easter!

We actually waited in the arctic wind for TEN minutes so that he could have his turn with the Easter Bunny. And this is as close as he'd get! Worth the frostbite just for the photo though.

The Last Warm Day

We enjoyed a walk by the lake before the storm rolled in and took spring away with it. Come back soon, please!

A Windy Day at the Park

He really did not want to go solo with the kite. Very worried. But, he did a great job!
