Silas Also Plays Drums

Here we see Silas doesn't just play guitar.

He seems to be getting more and more comfortable with momma's drums.

Silas On A Slide

Silas loves slides now.  We found this fun enclosed one at the park.

No fear...
Here's a video.

This was a cute display where we could show off how tall Silas is getting.
Remember, this was 6 months ago.  He is now 3ft-3in.

Silas And The Koalas

It was great to see him enjoy the koalas

It was not so great trying to get
mom, dad, Silas AND the koala to smile at the same time!

Silas And The Wallabies

Here is Silas at Featherdale Wildlife Park

He really enjoyed the wallabies.

Give them a little pat on their backs.

And a video of him feeding them

Silas loves to play his ukulele.

No time to wash the dishes dad... I must play my guitar.

Eat, Play, Sleep... what a life.

Silas' New Table

Silas first eats at the table...

Ok, so it is a very short table.

And he is in his PJs.

Lots of Blogging To Do

It has been too long since I blogged.
Our long vacation has me way out of sync!!!!

Also, Picasa->BlogSpot integration is broken.  Ugg.

No more excuses.

I'm starting about 6 months back.  Here is Silas driving a big red car.

Good thing there is a steering wheel on both sides.  I didn't want to have to explain the differences between US & Aussie cars.

He looks so young in these photos.... I need to catch up.

Silas' 2nd Birthday

I'm a bit behind on the other photos, but I wanted to blog his birthday photos today.

It was a dinosaur-themed 2nd birthday for Silas.

Silas is completely fascinated with rubbish trucks.  Since it happened to be rubbish day on his birthday, we hopped in the car and drove SJ around the neighbourhood so he could watch the bins being lifted and dumped.

 There's the truck.

Picking up the rubbish bin.

Then it was time to see how tall he was 97cm (38 in / 3ft-2in)

After dinner at Red Lobster, we had AWESOME chocolate cake and mint ice cream.

No Silas, don't touch the candles.  Blow them out!

Well done.

Don't eat the cake yet! (Notice a new shirt was required for the rest of the night as Silas managed to wear a lot of  frosting.)

"Sorry Papa, no time to smile.  I'm too busy devouring."

We tried some silly string, but Silas was not impressed.


It was such a wonderful day.  He didn't get to bed until 9 pm!

Happy Birthday Silas

Crocodile Dundee

Right next to the Sydney Aquarium is a wax museum. Silas slept through most of it, but he woke up in time for this crocodile.

Don't worry, this croc is perfectly safe.

But perhaps it is a bad idea to teach Silas he can ride on one!

Here is Dundee in the background.  Silas just sticks out his tongue at him.

Sydney Aquarium

We took Silas to the Sydney Aquarium.

I think he likes the fish.

I don't think you could have paid me enough money to do this type of thing before Silas came along!

I love seeing mum teaching Silas.  How beautiful.

Happy day at the aquarium.  Silas.... smile!

Walking With Silas on Rubbish Bin Day

We take Silas for walks right after the rubbish has been collected because he loves to play with bins.

Growing TOOO Fast

A few days after Silas was born, I blogged this photo under the title "Room To Grow."

Just under two years later, I'm worried about getting a new bed!!!
Silas, you are growing up WAY too fast.

In the Cabinet

Are you able to spot Silas?
All the crashing of items out of the cabinet were our clue...

Saturday, November 30, 2013


Perhaps we've reached a point where Silas is no longer allowed in the front seat!!!

Silas just loves guitars. He found this one in an op-shop.
It doesn't work, but that doesn't matter. It's still a prize possession.

Just having some fun with a bubble machine.

I don't think Silas knows what to think.

How much fun.

Boy in a bubble.
