There's some new stuff here....I have been adding posts that I previous only recorded in my journal in a effort to fill in some blank spots from the past six months...I intend to try to keep up with this little man's comings and goings - if that is possible! Enjoy...

As we travelled from one beautiful spot to another, Silas took it all in and loved every minute. he keeps himself entertained and laughing as long as he is in our arms. I Love this pic of the two guys in my life.

Making Friends

Silas had a great time being a part of the gang of kids that was roaming around and playing. Here, he is taking Parker and Willow for a ride. And here is Liam and Silas sharing some baby bonding time together. He is an incredibly social guy, joining into any kind of play with a huge smile and tons of enthusiasm. I guess he takes after him Mom.....

The Real Thing!

....and you thought that the first beach was awesome....Galiano, with it's pristine sand and warm water was the perfect playground for any little hands. Silas had his first look at starfish and his first real dip in the salty water.

A wonderful day spent at Stanley Park, re-visiting the place that five years ago we tied the knot...with our two kids in tow! And today, Silas saw for the first time, the vast and beautiful Pacific Ocean. From the vantage point of second beach, he dug through the sand, picking up shells and tasting the salt. The waves lapped up onto his little feet. He loved it completely.

Having fun in East Van

After three days driving in the car, it is easy to see the relief and joy on the face of our little guy hanging out in our favorite East Vancouver park, Trout Lake. The wading pool, the picnic in the shade and meeting his little cousin Jasmine was making Silas smile!

Well, yesterday we hit the road for the West Coast. It's gonna take a few days to get there 'cause we are just taking our time. Here is a picture from our brief little stop in Enderby. Dad and Silas are enjoying a few rays. So far, Silas is a great traveller, mostly snoozing or generally being entertained by staring out the window or watching his older sister while in the car.

Wagon Rides

Silas and Annelie enjoy a little wagon-ride action in the backyard. This week I am teaching kids clay clasees in the mornings while Liz watches the three little rugrats...then afternoons she teaches and I've got them....It's definitely a handful....I think we'll stick to two!
