Some fun photos and videos of our little 2.5 year old.

The 1,000 mile weekend


Full size
We took a trip to visit my grandma Perrault in Ponteix and got some visiting in with my brother and
his wife and son enroute. Here Denis is showing Henry his latest investment - a box of chicks. Apparently
these show up via Canada Post which I can't get over.


Full size
Henry got to spend some time with my Grandma Perrault which thrilled him to punch, partially
since she gave him a sucker every time he came by.


Full size
Henry was pretty excited to get to take a ride in grandma's walker.


Full size
Our next stop was the Moose Jaw spa to get some hot water therapy. Henry LOVED the spa along with
the puddles around and the elevated walkway to the spa.

Here's Henry working on his trashy reading. Thanks to Natalia's brother Eric for lending us his chariot.


Full size
I decided to try to cook the beef heart that's been in my freezer all winter. This is a spinach,
mushroom, and garlic stuffed recipe, but I still wasn't super pleased with it. Maybe a brining
next time?


Full size
Henry likes to help Natalia in the kitchen. It generally takes about six times as long, but
he does really enjoy it.

A super back-lit photo, but this shows the participants in the 'Beef Heart Romance Party'. Natalia,
Louis and Jeanna, Carl and Jen.

Grace and Renee spent the night with us in late April. Grace enjoys spending time at our house
since she always eats like a champ.

Camping at Bow Valley PP


Full size
We managed to get a single night of camping in April this year. Considering how crazy warm it's been
so far this season, it seems a bit weak to get only one night, but it's still impressive to get out
at all in April! This is a sweet hat that Aunty Maria got for Henry.


Full size
Henry discovered that he likes eating the graham cookies with chocolate on their own along with eating
marshmallows on their own too.


Full size
Henry loves playing with water, even if it's almost freezing water coming out of the faucet.

Aunty Maria and Natalia taking Henry for a walk. One of my favourite moments of this trip was sitting
on the side of the Bow River with Henry throwing rocks into the river. He was stoked.

Hiking Middle Lake


Full size
We took a short hike in the morning around the Middle Lake Interpretive Loop. Here's Henry walking
with his Mommy.


Full size
Henry literally stopping to smell the flowers - this time a crocus.


Full size
Henry and Natalia on the shores of Middle Lake looking up at Goat Mountain. I really like this photo.


Full size
Henry is definitely my son as he was more than happy to point out the interpretive diamonds and call
out the number on the post. Then we'd have Natalia read out the note from the guide.


Full size
Henry lasted about 10 minutes on foot and then into the backpack. He likes hanging out in the pack.


Full size
A happy day is a PB&J day.


Full size
Henry spending a bit of daddy time in the backyard. How funny is this hat on him?


Full size
Henry's so funny on the swings because he loves the speed and he loves to ride with Natalia or I.


Full size
Until he doesn't. Then he's scared and ironically not holding on at all.


Full size
Some repair work on our driveway. Let's see whether it lasts.

Before

After ~3 hours of yanking, digging, and tearing to get the space ready for hedges.


Full size
Henry loves the snow, even when he's in his sleeper with winter boots and a winter jacket.
This is another example of why most people don't plant their vegetables until May long weekend.
