French photographer and father of six Alain Laboile has dedicated his artistic energy to documenting the everyday life of his beautiful family. Even though many parents photograph their children as they grow up and become familiar with the world around them, there‘s something peculiar and deeply gripping about Laboile‘s black and white photographs. His pictures are realistic, raw, intimate, hippy-like and somehow familiar. His keen photographer’s eye captures all the mundane tenderness and delight of life. Source here.

Last Wednesday was all about Lola’s 7th Birthday. A friend of mine pointed me in to a great direction: Spyctive Crime Games (Spyctive Misdaad Spellen). A Dutch website where you can buy a spy/detective game to play indoors or outside. I tell you, this game was fantastic! 10 kids where fully committed to solve the bank robbery: a classic who done it.
When you buy the game, you get printed and most secretive invitations to the party, a classified envelop with lots of documentation and material, a dvd with instructions and a real secret agent that will accompany you on the telephone during the entire game. The kids (age 7 to 10) where so into this game, not quite certain if this was actually real or a game, that they followed thru till the end with extreme focus and excitement.
If you like a unique theme for your kids party, Spyctive it the way to go!
