Finally!


Hello! Well, it took some time, and a lot of wrangling, but I finally got my new camera! And I should have it paid off by the end of summer, so soon it will be well and truly mine. I think I might name it. Griffin and I had to drive into the city this weekend to pick it up, so we took the opportunity the next morning to head to the beach with Grandma and her dog, Kaslo.


Griffin had super fun digging in the sand.

It was pretty cold and damp, but I'm happy with how the pics turned out.

Plus, I couldn't resist sneaking one of this little family. If anyone out there knows who they are, let me know, and I'll send them a copy!

When we got home we were finally treated to some nice weather. Finally! We celebrated with ice cream cones. This is Griffin's first ice cream cone ever.

He picked it up fast.

He even showed Daddy how to do it.

And we capped it all off with a trip to the park.


It was one of those days when you look around and say to yourself, "look where we live!"

Newborn Session Posted

Hey, just wanted to pop over and let anyone who's interested know, I posted a new session of newborn photos over on the Lauren Kaye Photography blog (www.laurenkayephotography.com)
Cute kids - I almost wish they were mine so I could hang some of these photos on my walls!

Playing Catch-Up (plus some Big News at the end, for those who read that far)


Oh, hello! What a lot there is to catch up on. Hmmm... It may be time to resort to numbered points...
1. Jai and I had a great time in Mexico. It's not the vacation we would have chosen for ourselves, but we did enjoy it thoroughly. The beaches were spectacular, and it was such a wonderful feeling to go swimming in an ocean that is warm. And full of giant fish. Okay, the first time the fish swarmed me, I was a little freaked, but we worked it out in the end.

2. Griffin turned two!!! Happy Birthday, little G! You light up our lives every single day. He had a great time visiting with Grandma and Grandpa, and did just fine without the two of us - though I think we were all mutually glad to see each other when we got home!

This is the present he got from Jai and I - an awesome $2 Frenchy's find that we spent a day fixing up, just for him (scraping off the pink nail polish "Tina"s with hearts above the "i"s - as tempting as it was to leave those on!)
2b.) Oh yeah, and Easter happened (it has been a while, hasn't it?) Griffin loved the whole thing - bunnies and baskets and eggs.

3. Life has returned to it's usual, crazy, hectic-ness. The weather has been abysmal lately, but we did manage to sneak a day out to visit the public gardens in Annapolis Royal.

4. The Really Big News - for those who haven't guessed it. Baby #2 is on it's way! Oh yes, I knew there was a reason I couldn't find any extra energy for anything lately. There you go, the oldest excuse in the book. I'm feeling much better now, though, and so I'm slowly but surely returning to all the usual activities (i.e. blog posting!) I'm sure there will be lots more talk of this as time passes, so we'll just leave it at that for now. Till next time:)
