Slide Video

Another short one: a little video from a few weeks ago of Samuel playing on the slide (there’s a head, shoulders, knees & toes segment, too), when he first started climbing the ladder on his own. Again, video from the still camera, so not great quality and no audio. There’s a small version (33 MB) […]

Flashback #3

One more for today – there are two more prepared videos, which I might get to tomorrow. This is a little flashback to when Samuel first started walking. The video quality isn’t great, since it was taken with the still camera rather than the video camera (and whoever was shooting it – I don’t remember […]

50 x 4

Samuel’s grandparents are all 50+ now, with Nana’s birthday on the 28th of December. We squeezed in two days of birthday events in between the Point Wells Christmas and the Whangarei one, which made everything that much tighter, but these events don’t come often! We bought her a digital photo frame (which we also did […]

Coffee Group Christmas

Things have been pretty busy recently, so not much in the way of updates, although there’s a backlog of video/photos to upload that I’m gradually getting to, along with an account of the festive season. We hosted the coffee group Christmas party this year, and it went really well. Amazinly, the weather held out, so […]

Sam playing in Taupo

One last entry for our recent Taupo trip: here’s a short (3 minute) video (33MB, or there’s a 19MB version) of Sam at the playground and having a swim in the resort pool. The quality’s not great – the video is all taken with the still camera, which takes nice still photos, but pretty terrible […]

Taupō-nui-a-Tia

We had a week-long holiday in Taupo a couple of weeks ago – a Christmas present from (Great) Aunty Beryl. We stayed at Taupo Ika Nui, which was quite nice (certainly very conveniently located, right across the road from the lake, and a very short walk to the shops). The start had a bit of […]

Sam, photo-music-video style

Here’s a short (~ 2 minutes) summary of Sam in the first quarter of 2008 (or here’s a more relaxed version, if you prefer). These are somewhat large (17.4MB and 21.4MB) – if anyone wants to see them and doesn’t have that much bandwidth free then let me know and I’ll put up some smaller […]
