Both of us exploring pastel chalk drawings at StrongStart.
With the arrival of summer recently, my wife created this wonderful drawing for Jade.
We only have small carrot sprouts poking out now … but one day sooooon !!!
On the other hand, our beans and peas are really growing.
All joking aside, Jade and I had a blast at StrongStart yesterday.
StrongStart is a FREE early education program in BC, Canada.
The top drawing is a fun doodle from our pressed plants (shown below).
Jade really loved being in the trails and picking leaves and flowers.
And I really liked drawing from our exploration.
This exercise helped me focus on unique details and shapes of our local plants.
All the insects parading around outside … gotta love this season.
The lion and plant are very happy after the rain … (cue the rainbow).
A goofy creation of mine during our “Art Time” with my nieces and nephews at Grandma’s.
My wife created this kooky drawing during the cousin “art time” at grandma’s.
While at Grandma’s place, Jade and I looked at old photo albums.
Jade especially loved our wedding album.
After we paged through it, Jade immediately started drawing.
It was so cool seeing her so excited about this magical day.

Tomorrow is our family’s 13th wedding anniversary.
I’m so grateful for our lifetime of love together.
Here’s a photograph of our first dance as husband and wife.
At Grandma’s place, Jade had some exciting moments with her cousin Liam.
Liam loves to “splatter paint” and he created this wonderful autumn image (above).
My wife also created this “edgy” snake for Liam’s arm with face paints (below).
Liam’s hamming it up to scare his mom (my sister).
