Masters Home Improvement

Once again, Silas and Papa find themselves at the home improvement store.

Silas, smile for a picture.

No!  I want a real smile.

Not a funny face...

I will tickle you until you smile!

Close enough.

Museum of Printing

Part of Silas' school was to visit a local museum of printing.

Silas wasn't too excited, but we still got two thumbs up.

Wow.  We've come a long way with our colour laser printers.

Secret Garden

One of the shopping centres here has a special Secret Garden where Silas likes to enjoy his lunch.

Hot chips and a burger.  Yum.

I love this boy.

At camp, there are two trampolines.
Silas loves bouncing, walking, jumping, and even standing on them.

Camp Snake

Tina, Silas and I were asked to help at a youth camp.
We were welcomed on the first day with this!

They say it is harmless, but...

We may need to sleep in the car!

Silas' 4th Birthday Party

This was Silas' 4th birthday party

I think he has more adult friends than kids.

He is having so much fun with is construction cake.

Well done mum.

Playing with his best friend Thomas.

And, opening a few gifts.  Yes, he does get excited!

New Toys

One new toy Silas received at Christmas was Magnaformers.
Yet another excuse to build cool things.

We also found a girder-panel building set.  This was one of our first masterpieces.

Christmas Photo

This was our attempt to get a good Christmas photo.
We were all gritting our teeth as we tickled Silas to get a reasonable smile.

Megablocks Garage

We built a Mega Blocks garage today.

Complete with a light!

Ok Silas.  Smile.

Oh no... not that fake smile again!

Sometimes it is like pulling teeth.

Helping Dad with Work

My "job" requires me to play with some interesting toys.  In this case, I'm doing "work" with a toy called "Anki Overdrive."  Silas loves to help Papa!

Poinsettia for Dr Lee

Silas was not feeling well today.
Our awesome doctor, Dr Lee, made the time to see him without an appointment.

Silas wanted to say "thank you" and picked out this Poinsettia plant for him.

He was VERY excited to give this plant to Dr Lee.

However, we were reminded that most of the time we have to wait a long time to see the doctor!!!

Photo Moment

It would seem Silas often doesn't want his picture taken.

But sometimes he DOES!

What a silly, silly boy.
