Sonia’s Strawberry Dream

Strawberry

At Grandma’s, Jade had a chance to re-connect with her older cousin Sonia.

Lots of times, I’ll see an expression on Jade’s face and I’ll think of Sonia.

Above is a surreal drawing made by Sonia.

Below is a photo of Sonia when we went to a favourite Vietnamese restaurant.

Generational Journey with Bert & Ernie

Bert and Ernie / Retro Toy

Bert and Ernie / Drawing

Jade really enjoys the chemistry between Bert and Ernie.

Growing up, my wife was also a big fan and still loves drawing them.

It’s really cool when both parents and kids can compare and create their own fun memories.

For example, my wife still has her Sesame Street building from her childhood (photo above).

Jade loves playing with it just as much as we do (haha).

Happy Birds; Turning Frowns Upside Down

Happy Birds
One can’t be angry all the time (haha).

Last year, Jade’s cousin came over … He LOVES the “Angry Birds” game.

Jade kept wondering “Why do they have to be soooo angry all the time.”

I said the pigs never learned “to play” growing up.

New Discovery — Galapagos Birds and Toilet Rolls

Bird Toilet Paper Rolls

Little known fact …

These are the famous Toilet Roll Galapagos Birds (image above).

Darwin originally linked the evolution of birds with common toilet rolls.

My wife presented and unearthed this startling, new discovery today!

Remember, DON’T throw away your old toilet paper rolls.

Give them the love, care and creativity to evolve into a beautiful bird.

Waiting For Her

Waiting For Her

It’s always exciting when my wife and daughter come home!

A New Year … A New Start

Peaceful New Year

Last year’s resolution:  Draw & document images for my daughter Jade.

I’m really proud I accomplished last year’s vision.

I wasn’t sure if my project would ever get off the ground.

I had a backlog of images & it took a long to time to photograph everything.

I’m glad WordPress has the technology and helped me reach my goal.

It’s been such a joy creating this project and I hope to continue for some time.

Thanks to my wife, all my friends, and my extended family for their love & support.

Happy New Year to everyone.

May you all have peace, love and prosperity in 2013.

Let’s Go Fishing !

Spawning salmon season near our place … And the birds are hungry !!!

I Will Never Leaf You

It’s raining outside but we’re still having fun.

An overview of our “play station.”

Jade named the drawing and she also “wrote” the caption in red.

A fun snail detail from our final drawing.

“I’ll Never Leaf You” … the final drawing.

My Baby Chick

Jade often pretends she’s a baby chick. She still needs her “soo-soo” and blanket to go “Mimi” (chinese for sleep).

Autumn Leafs

Jade & I collaborated on a fun leaf project during StrongStart.

All the leaves were collected during our nature walk. Very fun!!
