Poncho Poppie

Filed under: Just Everyday — Dad @ 6:37 pm

Cezanne got all dressed up for her Tot Rock class. As you can see from the first shot – she is so busy all we see most of the time is a blur 😉

The doctor says…

Filed under: Doctor Visits — Dad @ 5:12 pm

…good job Mommy & Daddy !

15 month visit today and Cezanne is doing well. The doctor says she in developing beautifully, but we don’t really need a doctor to tell us that now do we 😉

Her specs are : 31.5 inches in length, 22 lbs in weight and her head has grown ever so slightly to a circumference of 17.75 inches.

She did have to have 2 shots which she did not enjoy at all, but recovered well and forgot that they ever happened by the time we got home.

15 Months

Filed under: Milestones — Dad @ 9:48 pm

Finally made it to another milestone… 15 months… It seems so short yet I can’t really think back to a time before Cezanne…

Today the little girl went to her first Tot Rock class and her mother tells me she was a little shell shocked by the 20+ other kids, plus she had just worken up from an early morning nap, I guess still recovering from a bit of jet lag…

We also went for a bit of a swim in the bigger pool we bought since we are enjoying a bit of a warm week – got to get those last few swims in before the chill sets in 🙂

Cezanne now clearly displays her mood and it can range from very talkative and active (her cutest) to still and sleepy to “the world is ending” tatrum… Oh the joys…

Home Again !

Filed under: Just Everyday — Dad @ 12:16 pm

Hello All

Just a very quick posting to let you all know we are home again from our trip to France. It was wonderful and Cezanne really is a great world traveller ! Here is a quick picture of her standing in the shadows of the remains of Châteauneuf du Pape. (we even managed to bring back a couple of bottles of wine in our checked baggage without any breakage).

I will post more details of the trip hopefully this weekend, but enjoy the photos below for now…

France 2007: Pont du Gard

Filed under: Places Visited — Dad @ 12:40 am

On our last day in Provence we worked our way back from Carpentras via Avignon to the famous Pont du Gard, an ancient Roman aquaduct which is over 2000 years old and still standing as it did when it was built in 1AD. Check the link above for some rather amazing facts about this World heritage site.

France 2007: On the 6th day I discovered Ice Cream & Chocolate

Filed under: Places Visited — Dad @ 12:33 am

Do I even need to provide commentary ?


We found Magnum ice creams at the local grocery store and I just had to have one, when Cezanne saw it she just had to have one of her own… I think she likes it…

France 2007: Roussillon

Filed under: Places Visited — Dad @ 12:28 am

The ocre-red village of Roussillonwas next on our list of small towns in Provence to see and this one was quite spectacular – all the buildings are red due to the ocre found in the soil surrounding the town. There is a church on top of the hill from which we took these photos of Ouma and Cezanne on the street below. ( Notice the wave )

France 2007: Carpentras Market & Châteauneuf du Pape

Filed under: Places Visited — Dad @ 11:49 pm

The town near our farm house – Carpentras – is know for its fresh strawberries and so we set off early to try find some at the local market which pretty much takes over the entire town center from early morning until noon. Lanelle, Celeste & Ouma were in heaven, shopping at all the little stalls while I kept a keen eye on Cezanne who was very eager to explore the market with or without me. We did find the strawberries which are quite small but oh so juicy and delicious. I carried Cezanne in the one arm while trying to get strawberries to her but I was not fast enough and so rather than waiting for me to bite off the green stem, Cezanne helped herself and ate a few stem and all…


After the morning madness at the market we drove to the town of Châteauneuf du Pape which is famous for a well known specialist wine in the Côtes du Rhône (Rhone Valley) region. One of the keys to the success of the wine from this region is said to be the very stoney ground that the vines grow in.

France 2007: Gordes & Fontaine de Vaucluse

Filed under: Places Visited — Dad @ 11:12 pm

Sept 13, 2007 – Our 10 year wedding anniversary spent in the south of France, we must be doing something right 😉 

The town of Gordes is really quite something – it seems to cling to the side of the mountain range known as the Luberon

On to the town of Fontaine de Vaucluse where we decided to picnic next to the river Sorgue. We had hoped to get out and swim but the water was icy. Cezanne was really the only one of us “brave” enough to take a dip – you can’t keep here away from water. There were also a lot of “Duck Duck” sightings which we all enjoyed !

France 2007: L’Isle sur la Sorgue

Filed under: Places Visited — Dad @ 11:05 pm

The afternoon of the 12th we spent strolling around in the little town of L’Isle sur la Sorgue which is known as the “Venice of Provence” with canals and waterwheels, many of which still in working order.
