Alasdair's Second Birthday

Saturday was Alasdair's Second birthday. We decided to have a fun day with all of his favourite foods. In the afternoon, when he took his new present outside, all the neighour kids came over to try it out. There wasn't too much fighting and crying, and luckily Nikki had baked some cupcakes which distracted them. There are some photos from the day below, or follow this link for larger size.

Holiday snaps

We got back from the UK last night. Thanks to continuous shooting mode, which seems to be the best way to capture my extremely mobile son, I had about 1800, but I'm down 750 already.

A Busy Day

Alasdair had a very busy day yesterday. He started in the morning at William's birthday party. Things needed to be dug:
Then in the afternoon a little bit of swinging was in order, all, of course, while looking super cool:
Then it was time to jump into the pool:
And of course, put all that swimming training to good use:

And of course, there's always time to beat Daddy up:

I bought a new camera in preparation for our holiday. It's a complicated beast, luckily I have a willing model who works for snacks.

Catching Up

Those of you who are on facebook may already have seen these pics. This is a catch up post for the people who are wise enough to have not joined there yet.

Let's start with Fireman Al, enjoying some yogurt. Everyone knows Firemen need to eat lots of yogurt to give them energy:

Next up, here's Prince Alasdair off to woo the Princesses at his daycare's Prince and Princess day:

Getting ready to go swimming. The lessons are going great and he loves being in the pool:

On Saturday he decided to climb from the back seat into the front, I better start being more careful about where I leave my keys or he'll be off: Finally, Nikki made a delicious rack of lamb on Sunday. Alasdair, as you can see, was in complete agreement:
