Most people that read this blog have come to know that Kyron loves to dance!  Becky and I got the cutest video of Kyron dancing near the stage at Disney World a few weeks ago.  Even at 16 months old, Kyron has quite the outgoing personality and is never shy to show off his sweet dance moves!

 Take a look at this video and let me know your thoughts!

Is that cute or what?

Happy Monday!

Kyron's Imaginary Phone Conversations!

8:30 AM Posted by CalgaryDaddy

  Our 16 month old son Kyron already has quite the imagination.  One of his favorite games is to pretend to talk on the phone!  If you ask Kyron, "are you calling Grandpa?", he will put his hand to his ear and say hello!

I caught him a few weeks ago on camera with the actual phone, pretending to talk.  I am not sure who he was "talking to", but it looks like a great conversation.

Happy Friday!

Kyron's Trip to Victoria and Seattle

10:41 AM Posted by CalgaryDaddy

  We had the good fortune to travel to Victoria and Seattle last month and I thought I would share some pictures.  Becky's Grandma, Aunt and cousins live in Victoria and this was the first time I had been able to travel there.  It really was a beautiful city ( and has the mildest climate in Canada) and I cannot wait to go back.


Here are some pictures:

At the petting zoo!  Kyron loves animals so much. 

Look Mommy....a spider! ( at the Victoria Bug Zoo!)

A couple of prairie boys at the ocean!

This is outside of the Empress Tea Room.  I love the contrast as the vines have not started blooming on the side of the hotel yet.


Since we were so close to Seattle, we decided to jump on the "clipper" ( its like a passenger boat...think bus, not a ferry) and head to Seattle for a few days also.  I have never been to Seattle and I was super excited.  This is also a beautiful, clean city and I had a great time.  The shopping was amazing and we love the fact that they waived the Washington State sales tax to residents of Alberta!

We did the typical "touristy" things while there:

The Space Needle of course!  I am ashamed to admit that I have not been up the Calgary Tower since I was in grade six and this really made me want to check it out again!

The Experience Music Project!  This was a cool, interactive music "museum".  While focusing on all music, it played tribute to Seattle's famous music scene and had extensive exhibitions on Nirvana and Jimi Hendrix among others. 

The Pike Place Market was one of the coolest markets I have ever been to.  It really is an adventure in itself and I am envious that Calgary is lacking such a cool landmark.  The market is over 100 years old and is packed with different vendors.  Definitely a sight to see.

I cannot wait to head back to Seattle one day to catch a Seahawks and Mariners game!
