Family Time

I realize that my first few posts make my life seem very different from everyone else, but be assured, we have fun, too! We’re a family that does a lot of near-home adventuring. I have a great capacity for excitement when it comes to special events, parades, and tourist attractions, so it’s easy for us to find awesome things to do without taking long flights or spending horrendous amounts of money.

We met a sand person!

This past weekend we went as a family to Calgary for the Comic Expo. Ayce was an absolute doll! Everyone always comments on his eyelashes (we say that he thinks his name is Eyelashes because he hears it so much), but this time around, we got comments for other reasons. Check out our awesome family costume!  Joel and I had been to a convention before, but never in costume.  I’ve got to say, it is AWESOME!  People kept stopping us to ask for pictures or to comment on how cute/awesome it was to see Tintin!

Who doesn’t love a tiny Tintin?

Ayce is generally a really laid-back kid. He loves people and cuddles and as long as he is in someone’s arms he’s usually happy! Joel and I were brave and decided to venture out to non-family restaurants with the boy during our little holiday. He did amazingly well. First we had a nice early dinner at a sushi place, and when we saw how well that went, we decided to take him to our hotel restaurant for a more romantic meal. He garnered some attention from the waitstaff and our fellow diners, but only positive! We were careful to keep him calm, and handed him off to each other if he started to become fussy, all in all I don’t think anyone could report us to http://www.stfuparentsblog.com/ and that is a win in my book!
