Moving Rubbish Bins

One of Silas' Favourite Pass-times.

Moving rubbish bins from one part of our driveway to another.

Push them in place Silas.

Use those mussels.

Now the red one.

Go quick, you are being timed.

Very nice, put it next to the green one.

A job, well done.

Helping Mum with the Groceries

I don't know if this actually counts as 'helping!'

I just hope the eggs are in the top section.

How fun.

This has become a common Saturday morning event for Silas and Papa.
We build huge buildings with mega-blocks.

Each week I see Silas being more and more creative.

And, it's pretty fun for Papa too.

Mum loves to keep Silas entertained.
Today we are making rain.

The idea is simple enough.
Glass of water.
Shaving cream.
Coloured water in a dropper.
Once the 'cloud' gets too full, it rains.

We are starting to see some odd cloud formations already.

Silas is captivated.

And having lots of fun.

And making a big mess!

Here in Australia they call a fire man a firee or fire-ie.
Silas looks like he would be a good one.

He likes the megaphone.

Tina taught him to yell "Everyone out of the building!"

Silas, now that you've gotten everyone out, time to put out the fire.

Well done.  Now he has his fire hose.

He even knows 

He is so cute, he might start more fires than he puts out.

Climbing a Tree

I guess it was just a matter of time until Silas wanted to climb our tree.

He is doing too well.

Perhaps you can come down now.

He is having fun.

King of the world.

Yummy blueberries.

Bubble Bath

The obligatory bath photo album.

Silas isn't sure what to do once he gets some on his face.

Daddy is no help at all.

Nice beard Silas.

Shake and Eat - Ice Cream

Tina found a fun way to make ice cream.

First, get some ice.

Next... get some cream. (This sounds so simple)

Looking good Silas.

Add cream to ice.


Ohhhh that's cold!

Keep shaking.

Time to give it a try.

Silas volunteers to take the first bite.

Silas and Papa love building trains.

Boys Will Be Messy

Since we know boys will be messy anyway,
we might as well control things a bit.

This looks fun.

Very interesting goop.

Silas is all boy.
