August, 2010 Photo Wrap-Up

It was a huge August and the kids have only gotten more busy, not less. We’ve had birthday parties, sleep-overs, soccer finals, dress-up days at school, martial arts Jedi training and more. Here are some of the highlights!

Dad took LR and RJ on the train into the city to look for a present for Mum's birthday.

RJ and Dad worked together to build this little robot. Mum loves the screeching electronic noises it makes, as well as the fact that it responds to voice commands, but only when shouted at THE TOP OF YOUR LUNGS.
