  • Family Pictures 2015

  • We recently got family pictures back from the talented Kinsey Holt. We hadn't had family pictures taken since Harper was a baby, so it was nice to have some current ones. Despite the rain and the wind which wreaked havoc on my hair, I think they turned out pretty good. [...]
  • Testing out the 35mm.

  • Lee spoiled me with a new lens for my birthday, so I spent the day playing around with it.   ^^bed head^^ ^^Playing with Legos^^ ^^Wren and Jenna^^ ^^I love those freckles^^ ^^Grandma Marj^^
  • Hiking in the Heat

  • Despite our best efforts and well laid plans to get out of the house early to beat the heat of the desert, it didn't happen. The kids were troopers though, and Harper only asked to get carried once. And while I can appreciate the landscape and the view from the top, it isn't the Rockies. [...]
  • Grandma's House Part 2

  • One of the funnest things from our weekend in edmonton was watching Wren and her 2 week older cousin Jayna hangout with each other. It was so hilarious and adorable. ^^It's almost impossible to get a picture of her sitting still anymore^^ ^^Jack is so good with the babies^^ ^^My only bl [...]
  • Trampoline Park

  • We made a pilgrimage to the Oviatt homeland this weekend. Despite leaving 17 degrees and ending up at -10 with 4 feet of snow, we had a blast. One of the things I miss the most about big cities is all of the indoor amenities for families. We took the kids to a trampoline park on Saturday and it wa [...]
  • Jack Turns 5

  • So my baby turned 5 on Friday. How crazy is that? I think there's always something special about each child, and what they represents for you as a parent. Jack is our first. He's the one that made us parents. He's the one that gets to be the subject of all our parenthood method testing. He has to [...]
  • Halloween

  • I have to confess: I hate Halloween. It is by far my least favourite holiday. It requires so much work and effort to get costumes etc for less than an hour of wear. Then there's the sugar overload. I'm not one of those parents who are all "candy is bad, you can't have any", but how do i have any [...]
  • Texas

  • Lee had a conference in Austin, TX last week, so we packed up the kids and headed south to enjoy the warm weather, the BBQ and the TexMex. The kids travelled great. We have been enjoying flying only carry-on to AZ, so we really wanted to see if we could do it to texas too. The problem was we needed [...]
  • Fort Edmonton Park

  • Last weekend, the Oviatt clan converged on Sherwood Park for my niece Jayna's baby blessing. We spent saturday at Fort Edmonton.  ^^Water Pump^^ ^^Lining up for chores^^ ^^The reward for chores was getting to pick chives. Lame.^^ ^^Ice Cream Stop^^ ^^Mini Golf^^ [...]
  • Happy Father's Day

  • Happy Father's day to the father of my children. He is such a rockstar. I love him for being willing to go on bike rides after being at the hospital for 24 hours. For being able to whip up some tasty japanese food in a pinch. For changing diapers, and cleaning up vomit. For finding patience when I [...]
  • Basement Camping

  • So...Lee and I both kind of forget it was a long weekend until it was already Friday afternoon. Since we had the weekend  at home, we filled it doing all kinds of boring lazy activities. We went out for breakfast, semi-organized the car etc. On sunday night, we let the kids stay up late, watch a mov [...]
