Tricky Elf

Filed under: Just Everyday — Dad @ 7:44 pm

Cezanne was quite upset when we discovered that we got a rather busy little elf this year, last year the “elf on the shelf” just sat there and kept an eye on the kids and reported back to Santa each night and then returned to a new spot each day. This year our elf was a real trickster, he tried to catch the fish in our fish tank, then he fished for goldfish in the toilet and made a snow angel in sugar. Cezanne really did not like him very much when she caught him writing a letter to Santa saying that she and Etienne had been naughty ! 😉

Lanelle made bubbles and went out into the backyard and played with the kids. They really love it when she does this but it makes them both a little crazy, the photos say it all…

We finally took the camera to the pool for some shots of the kids splashing and swimming.

Cezanne had been watching the Olympics and decided that her new hero was Missy Franklin.

The summer swim lessons were showing evidence of a great improvement in Cezanne’s confidence in the water.

We got so busy swimming each moment we had we never really got a chance to drive out into the desert at sunset for a great “sunset with cactus” photo that Lanelle wanted. This was the best we could manage…

Summer Vacation 2012 – Arizona

Filed under: Just Everyday,Places Visited,Special Events — Dad @ 5:41 pm

We took a short vacation in the middle of summer to the desert of Arizona – the idea being go some where super hot and be 100% sure you can swim each and every day for pretty much as many hours as you want to ! Mission accomplished ! We found a great deal on a week long vacation in Phoenix / Scottsdale at a Water park Resort Hotel. We swam so much that we did not spend really any time at the side of the pool so we left the camera in the room for most of the vacation. We did have to throw in the towel most days over lunch time due to the extreme heat and during one such break from the pool we went to an aquarium at a nearby mall.

Christmas Gift in July

Filed under: Just Everyday,Places Visited — Dad @ 5:35 pm

Celeste gave us a photo session with San Francisco photographer Dinno Kovic. We tried once before but the weather really did not play along so we rescheduled and today was the day. We did an early morning shoot at Crissy Fields in San Francisco with the Golden Gate Bridge in the backdrop and Dinno did a wonderful job getting some really amazing natural photos along with some more formal posed photos. If you are looking for some great outdoor on location photos then I suggest you contact Dinno ( http://www.dinnokovic.com ).

Ice Skating Class

Cezanne had asked to do ice skating and we were able to find her a class local to us here. She did very well and took to the ice with cautious confidence. It took her a few weeks to get the “balance” and “falling” and “getting back up” skills figured out but then she was at ease and had a good time making friends almost immediately and chatting and giggling her way through two sessions before passing and moving on up to the next level.

Etienne @ School

Filed under: Just Everyday — Dad @ 5:50 pm

I had to take some photos at school so had the camera on hand and got these shots of Cezanne’s little baby brother – yes that big boy in the orange t-shirt that looks like just another one of the kindergartners on the playground. He really loves coming to school with us to drop her off or fetch her in the afternoon. Cezanne loves it too.
