Natalie went to work this morning looking like this. Matthew was too afraid to get dressed with her in the room. Plus most likely the school would not have liked it too much if Natalie dropped him off so I did. Looks like I am picking him up too.
Hey everyone. Well as you can see it has been a while since our last update. Partially I have been working on Daisy Creative Photo post as well we lost NatSteveAndFamily.ca for about two months because my register failed to send me email notifications for the renewal.
Any way it is fix. It’s been register under a new company and I will now get the notices. Mean while I have a bit of catching up to do. So check back soon.
So tonight we enjoyed the company of good friends and of course enjoyed some great wine. I have to say the Amarone was my pick of the night and was a hard to fine 2007. My second pick was the Patales and a close second was the Decoy. Actually the decoy was a pick from a while back and just rereleased this week so I picked up some more.
The Crossbarn was a fav amongst our guest as well. The Charles Chimickey both signature and reserva were great too.
Each wine was let to breath for at least ten minutes except the Amarone which was given a good 30 minutes. All these wines had great tastes to them and combined with our meal they varied in taste.
Matthew after his first bike crash. Oddly, it has been almost three weeks since he has been riding a two-wheel bike.
Yesterday after school my son, as he usually does, yells down the hall to us that he is going out to play with his friend. Of course Natalie goes to remind him of what not to do on the street. When she returns she tells me that the neighbor’s boy is learning how to ride a bike, he is 7, and Matthew wants to try too.

This year is Natalie and I’s 5th anniversary and we decided to go to Orlando for the September long weekend. Since we wanted to do something different we choose to hit some amusement parks. We found a great package deal that allowed us to go to Busch Gardens, Sea World and Discovery Cove.
Discovery Cove was a snorkelling park where you can snorkel with tropical fish, sting rays and catch sharks in action. At Sea World we caught a few aquatic shows featuring dolphins in one and killer whales in another. At Busch Gardens we spent half the day photographing the animals and then the rest riding roller coasters. This worked out great since I love to snorkel and Natalie loves roller coasters.

This year for Matthew’s birthday we went to Calypso water park. Since the weather called for rain no one went and there were no lines. In the end it rained for 30 seconds and was cloudy for half the day. It was still warm and it was great not to have to line up. This year Nat and I got to try a lot more slides and had a blast.
