Christmas!

Waiting for James (and Emma and Joseph)
I can't believe it! Let's go for a ride.
I also got a front loader. I love it!
A motorcycle chocolate. Let's eat!
Helping Granma with the candles.

A big Tuesday

Wow, that's a nice frontloader! Can I see it close?
The operator let me work the front loader by myself.
That was great! Now a walk in Beacon Hill Park with Granma.
And then some play time in the Empress hotel where we saw lots of Christmas trees.

A visit with Santa

Today I went to see Santa at Maddox Farm. No problemo! Gave him my list and now it's up to him.

A cool Tuesday

Today was not my best day. I was feeling a bit under the weather. But I still had some fun in Beacon Hill Park.

Here I come.And there you go!
And in the Bay Center.

Monday with James

I found this "noisy" in the cupboard. I love it - it's my new favorite.Grandpa showed me "frost." I'm not sure I understand. But it's a chilly day and somehow this is some kind of water.

Monday with Mr. Jim Jam

Today was a bit nippy weather-wise so Granpa and I went to several different parks. In Cadboro Bay I discovered a stairway that went way up. Granpa wanted to help but I said no, I can do it myself!Yes it was very hard, many big steps, but I did it myself!

The Annual Lighted Truck Parade

Lighting up the streets, and the lives of those less fortunate with the Annual Lighted Truck Parade and Food Drive. The route goes right near our home!

It's a bit chilly waiting for the trucks.

Finally, with blaring sirens and honking horns...here they come!

There they go. All done!

Tuesday with James


When I blow my birdie whistle like a police officer, Granma has to stop. That's very funny.
The last day of my art class at the Victoria Art Gallery. Teacher is showing off my masterpiece which will be exhibited May 31st in the gallery.
Picasso might as well put his brushes away.
The singer.

In Vic West

It was supposed to rain today - but it didn't. So we went to my favorite park in West Victoria. Here I go to find my favorite steering wheel in the park. There's a brief moment when Granpa puts on my mittens because I couldn't do it myself.

Starbucks or Crumsby's (a terrific kid friendly cupcake shop)?
video

Chasing Granpa is also fun.
video

Where should we go next? Jennifer's house?
video

Now that's what I like. The bulldozer at the Cascades paper recycling depot.
video

And the backhoe!
video

And the amazing bulldozer seen through a gap in the hedge! He does this everyday. It's his work.
video

Now I'm tired. This was our walk:

Time to go home.

A trip to Goldstream Park

Today we took a trip to Goldstream Park to see the salmon jumping.

Come on! Let's go!

The salmon are hard to see in the water...until they make a splash.
With Mummy and Granma.
Hmmm, I wonder what's in here?
It's a tree house!
A tree chair.
I didn't understand "dead."
