This was a clever device used by the A.W.A.N.A. team at the local church to keep the kids together as they move from the classroom to the gymnasium.

Building Blocks

Back home, Silas and I often build using Legos or Megablocks.
Unfortunately these were not available to as in Hawaii.
But that didn't stop us!!!

And there is always time to destroy...

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.

Hot chips and a burger.  Yum.

I love this boy.

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!
