Well haven't I just been about the worst blogger ever?! Here are my reasons for not blogging since March:

1. I was on tour with the RCA Band to Myrtle Beach for 10 days in March
2. Went on tour with the Air Command Band to Flin Flon, The Pas, Saskatoon and Souris in April.
3. Went on tour with the Air Command Band to Thunder Bay in May, and right after that we went on our House Hunting Trip to Edmonton.
4. Moved from Winnipeg to Edmonton in June.
5. Almost as soon as we moved, we had to go to Calgary to play in the Stampede parade and Spruce Meadows. We also went to Medicine Hat on that trip for a Change of Command parade.
6. In July after we got back home from the Stampede, we had a week before we took off again, this time to The Netherlands for 10 days. We got back from there, had 2 days at home and then went to Shilo for a Change of Command parade. Finished that, came home, went to Calgary to pick up Keiran from Brians parents house. Started summer leave right after that and 5 days later went to Lethbridge for Mike and Karens wedding reception.

We are now finally home and hope to stay home for a few months!!! We've been so busy that I don't have much else to report other than we haven't been home, Keiran is a cute kid and we are just starting to get used to our new house. More news to come as it happens! Pictures too!

Moms Surprise Birthday Party - part two - at the playground

Saturday late morning we took Savannah and Keiran to the playground at the beach. They're still a little small for most of the stuff but had fun anyways. My mom gave Keiran a duck hat that looked really cute on him. It is now officially called the duckman hat.

My little man on the swing. I think it was his favourite part of the playground! Some good drool coming out of his mouth too.

Playing with Savannah on the little turn-around thingy. He liked that part too.

On the teeter-totter. Dave was on the other side with Savannah. Not quite ready for this one yet. He only lasted about a minute on it before he'd had enough.

Moms Surprise Birthday Party - part one

My mom turned 50 this past weekend! Woohoo! My sister decided that my mom needed a surprise party and so we somehow managed to pull it off! I don't know how, but it was great! She knew I was going to be out there (how could I go out for the party and not let her see Keiran as much as possible???!!!) but didn't know about Lindsay and Mike being out there (and the party itself of course).
So anyways, Keiran and I flew half way across the country for the weekend and it was great! He was sooo good on the plane. I had been really worried that the plane ride would be a nightmare but thankfully he managed to keep himself nicely occupied.
Here he is on the day we left (friday), about 10 minutes before we needed to leave for the airport. He didn't get a great nap that afternoon, poor kid. He looked cute when he was sleeping though!

On the plane. The guy you see sleeping in the background was about the nicest man ever! He let Keiran climb all over him and he played with him and was just so good natured. At the stop over in Calgary, he got off the plane and bought Keiran a donut from Timmies. Sooo nice! It turns out that he's the chief of the Air Force squadron in Comox! cool.

Eating and watching TV standing up.

Saturday morning we went out for breakfast with Dave. We had Savannah for the day so the cousins got to hang out together. Keiran sure enjoyed his pancakes that morning!

Keirans latest thing has been to walk around as often as he can with a finger in his bellybutton. He is obssessed with the thing! He loves to lift up his shirt and get tickled and show off the button. In the tub, he'll have one hand on a toy and one on his bellybutton. Too cute!
So here's Daddy with the little monkey:

One of their favourite games to play together:

I think Keiran is almost done with picture face! Now Daddy is the only one to make it!!!!

This kiddo is going to grow up to be a computer nerd like his parents. He is already obssessed with them! He especially loves it when I show him little videos of himself on my computer!

A few random pictures from the past couple of days. Here is cute little Simon sitting on Brians lap. It's been awhile since I've put pictures up that haven't been of Keiran!!!

Taken this afternoon. Maybe he's hinting that we don't give him enough to drink??!! He's actually pretty obssessed with carrying around his bottles whenever he can find them.

Playing in the tub last night. He makes up new games all the time!

On one of his first days of daycare. He is adjusting pretty well but still screams like crazy every time I leave. Poor kid! Poor Laura!!! It's great that he has a few kids to play with every day too. He already says NO! whenever he doesn't want something. Didn't take too long to learn that one!!!

I haven't been able to upload much lately, especially videos. For some reason they just don't want to load so I'll have to stick to pictures for now!
Right before New Years, Keiran got his first major head bump. He was playing a chasing game with Daddy and fell straight into the door jamb. Poor kiddo!!!! Much screaming ensued but about 5 minutes later he was totally fine. Here is the progression of his bump for the first 3 days after it happened.
Day 1: about 10 minutes after the "incident". (you can tell he is totally fine by the appearance of "picture face")

Day 2 at tub time: (what?!?!?!?! "picture face" again?!?!?!?)

Day 3 at St. Vital mall. Unsurprisingly we again get to see "picture face".

Still day 3, just a close up. We would have seen "picture face" if my camera had reacted just a tad quicker!
