Natalie shooting water at daddy!
And me, playing around with some underwater self-portrait shots.
While I picked it up mainly as an affordable method for taking underwater still and video while I am SCUBA diving, this housing has also come in handy for me in the pool!
The kids are happy to be in the water!

She is beloved Nanny to grandchildren Justin Dalling (Ashley Rioux) and Aidan and Natalie London.

The cement walkway in front of the house needed to be replaced because one of the pads had cracked and a couple had shifted. So, manual labour was called for!
During our summer vacation to Ontario, we visited Parliament Hill in Ottawa, to see where all the decisions are made and the politicians act like schoolchildren.
Aidan was playing around and taking pictures with his camera, when this guy came and started talking to him. He gave me his card and told Aidan if he came back in the Fall when government was sitting, he would take him to lunch in the Parliamentary restaurant!
I didn’t recognize him, but after I read his card, I found out he was Senator Rod Zimmer, from Manitoba. Of course, because he was so nice to Aidan, I knew he couldn’t be a Conservative and HAD to be a Liberal! Sorry, couldn’t resist!
Thought this one turned out nice, considering the clear cloudy sky in the background.
Leaving McDonald’s with his new (and overpriced) ‘Night at the Museum‘ Albert Einstein bobblehead toy, Aidan starts reading the information sheet that comes with it:
Aidan: “In the movie, the Einstein bobblehead helps Larry unlock the mystery of the tablet. The real Albert Einstein was born in Germany and is best known for his Theory of Relativity”
(yes, he is just finishing Kindergarten, and the only word on that info sheet he had trouble with was ‘relativity‘…)
Mommy: “Very Good! Did you know that Albert Einstein was one of the smartest people who ever lived?”
Aidan: (without missing a beat…) “Is that why they make toys that look like him?”
The way the mind of a kid works is just hilarious!
