Disneyland 2016

Despite coming home with colds, the family had a great time in California. The kids were fearless in their attack of all the big attractions at Disneyland and California Adventure Park. The weather was fantastic with sunshine everyday and warm temperatures everyday. Lots of great memories.

Here's the slideshow:

Climbing and stuff...

Last weekend was Carter's 4th birthday. We went to a climbing facility just across the bridge called Funtopia. It was really great. Melody's competitive nature had a chance to surface with competitions of who could get the up wall the fastest happening at every turn. Maybe this will be an activity she can focus on.

Here are some pics from Carter's party:

Parenting is hard.

Most days there are still blow-ups and maybe that's normal, but we'd be lying if we said it's easy. Ultimately, you try your best to do the right thing and hope that things will eventually sink in and turn around. We know that we're lucky to have what we have, but again it's not easy. The constant refereeing can become so tiresome and stressful. On their own the kids are so fantastic. They are both doing well in school, seem to have a very normal social existence and most importantly seem to be developing well. If Tracey and Roger were to eliminate the one main issue in the house it would be the sibling rivalry and the general mean spiritedness that continues to rear its ugly head. Despite all of this, they still try and give the very best to these two kids. Here's our little trip to the park followed by some pictures from Auntie Shannon's birthday last weekend. Games night was a lot of fun, it was the first time that Roger and Tracey convinced Grandma to actually go to bed and not wait up on the couch.
