Some photos from my BB in June and July 2015.

Video of Henry giggling


Video of Henry saying 'pickle'



Full size
I took Henry to an indoor playground in Cochrane and he quite liked it.


Full size
Here he is rocking out on the rocker thingy.


Full size
After the indoor playground and a bit of Walmart action, we trashed it up and went to McD's. Henry LOVES cheeseburgers
so what are you gonna do?


Full size
Visiting Sask, this is at a play area with his cousin Luc called Mad Hatter's.


Full size
Here's my sales guy Carl in shorts and cowboy boots. Seriously.

Touring Dublin


Full size
I took this photo of a sign since I had found my son's street - Henry Street in Dublin, Ireland.


Full size
Check this out - who goes to TGI Friday's for a communion??? How weird is this?


Full size
My first meal in Ireland - curry chips and chicken! Yummy!


Full size
Here's my buddy Danny at the Temple Bar enjoying a Guinness.



Full size
Here's Danny again looking classy outside the Oliver St John Gogarty.



Full size
Danny and I wound up in the middle of a pub when a stagette attacked the bar. You can see
a young lady in the lower right with a person-sized inflatable c0ck. Good times!



Full size
Since the events of 20 years ago were still in people's minds, the England/Ireland friendly was held at 1pm
and no beer was served before the match. In the event, there were no issues, but it's interesting that the
police would go to that extreme caution. More information about the early riot is HERE .


Full size
Here's my friend Rene and his girlfriend Michelle at the Aviva Stadium.



Full size
The early events prior to the match.


Full size
Rene being a gentleman.


Full size
A much nicer photo of Rene and Michelle.

Michelle joined a few of our colleagues out for Indian food. Here are Michelle and Reem with double glasses.

Full size
Out for a hike in Dublin's hills to the south.


Full size

Full size
Another look at us in the foggy mist.


Full size
Michelle wasn't sure about this 'hiking' business.


Full size
Rene getting punched in the junk. He likely deserves it.


Full size
A nice photo of Rene and Michelle after a cool hike in the woods.


Full size
After driving awhile on the wrong side of the road, we randomly wound up in a waterfall area. Check out the 'no climbing' sign.


Full size
The waterfall was neat.


Full size
We found our way to the highest bar in Ireland - Johnnie Fox's. Many celebrities and politicians have eaten and drank here.


Full size
One of the best bar signs I've ever seen.


Full size
The last Irish breakfast I'll have for awhile - at Dublin airport.


Full size
This is the Irish snack - white bread with butter and potato chips. Seriously.

More photos of Henry


Full size
I dressed Henry up as a little German boy and pulled up his socks.


Full size
Here's our little monster at a wedding in Cochrane.

More Henry photos


Full size
Henry playing foosball in our basement. He quite likes playing and scored his first goal - although he threw the ball in the net.


Full size
Henry quite likes eating ice cream.


Full size
Henry was less interested in me for Father's Day, and more interested in his ice cream.


Full size
Henry eating a mini ice cream sandwich at Mel's house.

Henry in Ottawa, ON

Henry on the plane ride home, loving his glow worm and looking out the window.

My brother-in-law Justin at the Brewster's Kananaskis golf course. Not bad! Good value for money at $65 a round.

Canada Day in Cochrane, AB


Full size
Natalia's sister Maria came up to Cochrane to join in our Canada Day fun. Here she is learning how to fly fish.

She got a beaver tattoo.


Full size

We got a free bag of chips with our entry and Henry loved salt and vinegar (kind of surprised).

Full size
How happy is our little Canadian!


Full size
My mom came to visit us and she got to spent time with Henry. Here they are on our porch.


Full size
And here they are on the train to the Stampede parade.


Full size
While you see little of the parade, this proves Henry and my mom were there for their first Stampede parades.


Full size
Natalia and I at Stampede - Nati with a frozen pineapple drink and me with fried pickles.


Full size
And, of course, my Mom got a hot dog.


Full size
Henry found a fun play area to run out some energy.


Full size
My mom helped him sort out how to use this toy.

Henry and I, Kirk M, and my Mom outside Guy's Cafe and Bakery (not Gee's).


Full size
Henry loves riding swings at our parks. He wants to go faster.


Full size
"MORE" says Henry.


Full size
This picture got more critical acclaim on Facebook than almost anything else I've ever posted. I think it's funny
since Henry will feel like he would have kicked his own ass if he sees this photo in 10 years.


Full size
Canoeing on Ghost Lake with my wife. This is 10 mins from our house. It's pretty awesome.


Full size
Henry had his first boating experience in my parents' old canoe, at almost 40 years old.


Full size
Natalia, Henry, Ghost Lake, and the Canadian Rocky Mountains, 5 July 2015.

Henry likes using his bubble mower when I'm mowing. Nati thinks this is funny.
