Summer 2013 so far...

I just don't know what to tell you... I took some time off. I find unplugging every once and a while really clears the head, especially when the weather's awesome. Also, I'm a lot busier now that I'm five... it's a lot of responsibility. As a result, I've let my update responsibilities slide a bit, but I'll try and cover the main points (in little more than points and pics).
I finished Montessori and am set to head to Kindergarten at General Gordon Elementary in September!
Here's me walking to my last day, and at my graduation...

My Grandma got married which was great fun. I wore a bow tie and a classy shirt.
We had the best Canada Day Weekend! We went to Deep Cove, and had a Barbecue, went to a bunch of beaches, and hung out with family. 

Lastly, we just spent a week in Parksville. I rode my bike every chance I got, and Ollie learned to ride the scooter so we tore it up! I even made some new friends who taught me how to play BINGO.
I could show you more pictures of all those things, except I don't take a lot of pictures. What I do a great job of is loving life, and helping my brother whenever he needs it. It's like we're the Next Generation without the Pepsi.

5 Years Old!

A lot has happened since I last wrote, but the biggest thing has to be that I am finally now 5 years old! I feel like I've waited most of my life for this age, and now it's finally here. With it comes a lot of new responsibilities (Dad tells me I've got to get a job), and I'm trying to embrace them all.

I had a wonderful party that started with a Saturday morning game with my t-ball team 'The Night Furries!' Grandpa brought me over a new helmet which was awesome. Then I had a party with all my friends at the indoor soccer park. It too was awesome!

After that Dad, Grandpa, Dex and I went to the Whitecaps game where they beat the LA Galaxy 3 - 1! It was a great birthday that seemed to last for days. Five promises to be the best yet, filled with song and dance, sports and schools, and family and friends. I can't wait!!

Happy Easter!

Hi Everyone, I hope all your  Springtimes have been off to a great start! It's gotten much warmer in Vancouver, and we sure hope it stays now - last Spring my Winter jacket was still seeing action on Canada Day! This will be my last Spring at Montessori so here I am showing Ollie the ropes.

Soccer's over now, and I got my first medal. Being a Hornet was awesome! I can't wait until next year!

We're spending Easter in Palm Springs at the moment and it's been so much fun!

My Dad and I spent an afternoon at Boomers where we played 18 holes of mini golf, played games in the arcade and went on the bumper boats - it was pretty terrific.

We (Mum, Dad, Ollie, Nanna & Grandpa and I) spend almost all our time at The Ace, where they have a pool, action, and a constant DJ. I've decided we're going to build a pool in the backyard at home. I just can't get enough.

Anyway, I must go as it's our last day. I hope you and yours are all having a wonderful Easter!!

Get ready for Spring 2013!

How exciting is it now that it's light when we wake up and almost stays light until bedtime!? As much as I like a good cartoon, I'm excited about more outside time and warmer weather. March is right around the corner, but February was awesome. Who doesn't like Valentines day? And Ollie and I had Nanna and Grandpa all to ourselves while Mum and Dad went away.

I'm starting to really get a handle on LEGO - I just can't imagine a life without it. My parents are pretty good, but I might be the best in the world at it now. Our Vancouver United Season is coming to an end this weekend, just as the Whitecaps Season kicks off, but there will be some camps in the Spring and Summer to be sure.

We've started really exercising the gears on the bike I got for Christmas (4th is my favourite). Dad says we're going to ride through Pacific Rim Park (Endowment Lands) a few times a month now. It's awesome in there - plus I have new riding gloves (only for riding).

And, in case you guys don't recognize me, this is how I look after my haircut at VICTORY Barbers.

Denver... Gorgeous

I hope everyone's had a great start to the new year! This month was off to a bit of a slow start, but on the 10th of January, I went on a work trip with my Dad to Denver! We took 2 planes to get there and 2 planes to get back, and we had a big hotel room and shared a huge bed. Get this, the hotel had free breakfast in the mornings, and cookies and milk (and tea for Dad) every night between 8 and 10pm.

My Dad did have the occasional 'meeting' (yawn) but we managed to eat all our meals together and we even went to a Denver Nuggets Basketball Game!! We got seats right close to the floor and sat beside a family who were clearly big fans, and really well connected. I even did 'rocks' with the shooting guard Corey Brewer (he's my favourite player).

We thought we were going to be late for the game, but we hopped in a pedicab and were there in a flash. It was so neat to weave in and out of traffic (although a little cold).

The next day we took a drive to Boulder, and that's where I saw a life size Spiderman! He wasn't real, but it was hard to tell for sure at first. My memory of Boulder? Great Pizza, Spiderman and Coooold.

On our way back to Denver that afternoon we stopped by an old friend of my Dad's place for dinner. More awesome pizza, but more importantly... three kids!! I mean my Dad's fine and all, but after a few days, I needed to be around some people that speak my language: LEGO, bouncy castles, funny jokes, jumping etc.

The next day we took our two planes and made it home in one piece. I was so happy to see my brother again. We were both so excited to be reunited.
All in all, Denver is great, The Nuggets rule, Spiderman is real and it's nice to be home.
