Would You Believe That This is My 500th Post?!

Wow, 500 posts! Thank you to everyone who has been here since the beginning of this blog! And of course a hearty thank you to all those who have picked up this blog somewhere in between! I hope you've been enjoying all that you've seen, read and heard on the ol' blog!

Now for a quick explanation about the whole Lion Hunt video. (if you haven't watched it yet, you really should go do that first! Believe me it's worth it!) When we (that is the Hopes) were a younger family, my father used to entertain all the nieces and nephews with his hearty rendition of the Lion Hunt. He was so good at it, that even as adults our cousins still clamour for Uncle Garry to do the Lion Hunt. So it was in good Hope tradition that we took Sean on his first Lion Hunt. Now, what you didn't see on the video was once that was done, Sean wanted to do it again! And would you believe that Grampa went through that whole thing again!! And this time Sean did the actions all by himself! It was a hoot!

Here are some random shots from today:

"Please Sir, could I have some more?"

Fun in the water tub!

This pose was Sean's idea. He got up there and told me to take a picture! How cute!

"Sometimes you feel like a nut..."

"Listen dude, you're just getting too close for comfort. Back off!"

"Somebody STOP this thing!!"
