Here are some photos and video from the long weekend (without the Cochrane rodeo)
in Cochrane and in Red Deer.

Whenever we can, the boys love riding their bikes at the Launchpad, our amazing new bike park
in Cochrane, courtesy of Bike Cochrane .

Henry's first day of Grade 1.

This seems appropriate for this year.

Henry and Walter dropping Henry off for his first day of school. The nice thing this year is that they
started with a staggered entry giving kids a chance to sort out the new rules.


Full size
When one of the boys starts or ends a school year, Natalia takes them for ice cream. These
two boys are mighty excited about that.


Full size
We went out to Gooseberry to go hang out with Henry's friends Rhys and Grayson. This is near the
playground in the campground and the boys thought it was fun to see this teepee.


Full size
Henry and Rhys came for a walk to explore the Elbow River a bit and throw rocks.


Full size
Throwing rocks into the river is fun for any boy. I love that they still have their helmets on
as we had biked around the campground.


Full size
Walter had no interest in pooping in an outhouse, so this is what Natalia cooked up as an idea.
This will be funny in a few years I'm sure.


Full size
We took the boys back to the river so Walter and Grayson could play too.


Full size
Walter loves to cast his fishing rod even if all he has on there is a plastic fish.

Full size
Our neighbourhood did a fall get together and one of our neighbours opened up their small business
that makes cotton candy for everyone. One of our neighbours had three cones!


Full size
So did Henry.


Full size
In addition to our bike park, the boys also enjoy riding their bikes at the skate park.
This is the inside of the 'pool'.

Another day riding at the Launchpad is always an awesome day.

After riding bikes, the boys are super happy to have a Wendy's Frosty.

Labour Day fun with cousins


Full size
Since the weather looked terrible, I took the boys for tour up to Red Deer. This is the new
setup in Danielle's basement.


Full size
We took the boys to a park to play and found this sweet new playground, complete with a giggle box.

After playing for awhile, the boys needed a snack and were stoked to get Ring Pops.

Walter also had a blast playing with Grace and Logan's toys.

Walter's favourite PJ Mask character is Gecko. Logan has a mask from Gecko and Walter thought it was cool.

Yummy blue cheese burgers for dinner

Grace and Henry went to Grace's pre-kindergarten class to play.

After taking formal family photos, we took the boys to the Forge and Smoke for dinner. They were
super happy to get pop and get to watch wrestling on TV.


Full size
We got convinced to do a photo shoot for the town to show how to transport a bike on our new bus
so the boys got to have a private ride on the bus.

Henry thinks he's cool at the back of the bus.
