…make a winning combination Here’s Blake and three of his big friends. They are very good to him and he holds his own with the bigger kids. We hope you can watch this one, Grandma! Cleet, Wrenzi, Stina and Blake on the tramp:
It’s my birthday. The Shanghai sun shone down on us and we had a beautiful day. It started with a run, moved on to a breakfast with the family, next there was a Links family fun day followed by an afternoon in our friend’s backyard complete with slip and slide. Here are some pictures and … Continue reading
We spent the afternoon at a friends house today and Blake found some nail polish. Next thing we knew… and then this… When (if) it’s time to take it off, we’ll have to head back to Chele’s house, because we don’t have any nail polish remover at our house.

He raced through the course at record speed, barely allowing the ball to stop. He also was … Continue reading
Peg, Dad, Scott, Blake and myself took a trip to the Ontario Science Center to take our minds off things. To say Blake LOVED it, is a huge understatement.
