The World’s Largest Dinosaur

The scene is Sunday morning. Tomorrow’s a holiday.

Lauren: “So what should we do today?”

Rob: “We could go somewhere. How about Drumheller?”

Lauren: “Hmm, a 3 hour drive with a rambunctious toddler and a 2 month old who has recently decided he hates his car seat? Sounds awesome!”

Rob: “And let’s do it as a day trip, just for fun!”

You’d think we would have realized this was a foolhardy plan…But we did it anyway. Sometimes we have pretty silly ideas. But that’s how we find ourselves on some pretty great adventures! And, y’know, it builds character and all that.

Family Self-Portraits with Oliver!

So in this post I’ll share how we went about taking some family self-portraits during a recent vacation to the beautiful Hawaiian island of Kauai, and some tips you can use to take your own family photos!

Last Copies of Our Fine Art Book

We recently went digging into our closet to pull out some more copies of our fine art book – Lobster Island – to send out, and realized that we’re down to the final boxes!

Holy smokes! It’s been a pretty amazing sight to see these go off into the mail, sharing our experience documenting lobster fishing in Prince Edward Island. It’s not something we ever thought we’d actually witness – a book of our own, being shared with others. And to say it’s been a rewarding journey is to put it mildly!
