Happy Birthaday Isla!!

Friday was Isla's 1st Birthday. After work we had a quick supper and went to the Movies on the Beach (see post). We had a Birthday party (with just family) for Isla on sunday (I haven't downloaded the pictures yet)
This was Isla's cake on Friday night:
Yummy Jam/Lemon cupcakes

Some Pics

Friday night we went to "Movies on the Beach" a promotion put on by a local radio station. They inflate a giant screen and show a movie at a local beach, and best of all it is FREE!!!
Here is the giant screen before the movie started

It was very popular, there was at least 500 people there

Keir had a blast playing in the sand and rolling down the hill, here he is caught in the act

Keir waiting for the movie

We brought some popcorn for Keir

Even Isla enjoyed the showed

Sunset and flying Isla

Eventually Isla fell asleep, I had to take her for a little walk to get away from the noise of the movie, but once she was asleep we just put her in the chariot(baby carrier)

Movie Night

Keir and I went to see the new Star Wars Movie last night!!! The Movie is called The Clone Wars and it takes place between Episode II and III. Yes I am an admitted “Star Wars Geek” and proud off it :-)
The Movie is a spin off of the Cartoon Series of the same name. It was created by the Cartoon Network, originally they had a bunch of short chapters that aired on TV and are now available as DVD.
If you are a “Star Wars Geek” you will like this movie but I suspect there will be some people that don’t like it (a couple of the characters are “interesting choices”)
Enough of the review, Keir really enjoyed himself and he didn’t even leave the theatre to go to the bathroom for the duration of the movie. Those of you with small children will know that this is no feat!

Here is another video of Isla

Paging the Hardies.... are you there Mr Hardie?

Ok, I keep saying I will post more... but this time I mean it ;-)
Things have been really busy for us with the move, summer, and two kids.
I feel like we are finally settling into the new home. we really like the neighbourhood and the yard is amazing, the house needs a little work to bring it around to our tastes but that is what the weekend and Home Depot are for! We have already done some mini projects (ripped up the old flooring in Keir's room) changed some light fixtures, so things are a changing at the house.
We haven't had much of a chance to get to the cottage this summer, but we did manage to get up there last weekend. Here are a couple of pics from the week we spent up there.
