Helping to Built the Spice Rack

Dad's project this week was a spice rack on the back of the pantry door.

Silas watched carefully.

Used to power tools when possible.

And did pretty well at avoiding hitting daddy's fingers with the hammer.
"pretty well..."

I just wanted to post this nice picture of Silas with Oma.
Her patience with this messy little guy is amazing.

Silas was having a good laugh looking at this old photo.

We laughed at his goofy smile, so now that's all he wants to do!

Time to Rest

After all that moving, it was time to rest.

And wrestle.

Fun even when exhausted!

Moving House

Moving into our new house, Silas tried to help.

It was often in a supervisory role.

And he often just got bored.

So we invited some friends over to help.

Silas was having fun now!

Ok.... TOO MUCH FUN!!!

A common sight on Saturday mornings is now papa and Silas building with MegaBlocks.

Usually this involves dad building and Silas jumping on dad's back.

Very fun!!!

Calvary Camp

Our church had a camp weekend and Silas really enjoyed himself.
He had fun with the other kids.

The bonfire was great.

We even had someone do a fire dance show.
Great fun.

With Silas' allergies, we have to be careful with treats.
Here we made some home-made icecream.
I think he likes it!

Silas Bike Ride

Tina picked up this little bike at an thrift store.
Little did we know that Silas would be too big for it on day 1!!!
Since then, we've picked up another bike.

Here is a video showing him trying to ride.

Oma sent a Bruder brand rubbish trick for Silas.
Why? Because Silas started to use the toilet for poos!
Thanks Oma

Birthday Water Fun

A little 'slip-n-slide' fun on Silas' birthday.

3rd Birthday

Please note, I am catching up on a bunch of old photos!!!

Here is the cake Tina made for Silas' 3rd birthday.

What a work of art.  Silas was ALMOST as excited about the trucks as he was about the cake.

We have a few people over for the party.

Silas loves construction and was very happy to get the
new Bruder brand Cement truck.

Smiles all day....  Happy birthday buddy.
