Henry tries out cross-country skiing


Full size
While Henry has ridden in my backpack skiing for awhile, we figured it was time to try it out on his own.
Armed with skis from kijiji, Henry gave it a shot at West Bragg Creek Trailhead.


Full size
His skis mostly stayed on, and he seemed to enjoy it, for at least 10 minutes.

Henry, I Spy, and a lollipop.

This little gem was found by Natalia and Henry can not get enough of it. It's like a hot wheels track
for mini trains, but it's not as giant and obnoxious. Definite parent win.


Full size
It's like the penguin elevator old toy from the 80s but updated and more fun. Henry loved the penguin toy at
West Edmonton Mall, but this is better. Sadly, it chews up batteries.


Full size
The back of Mom's mini-train kit for Henry also has a track, which provides hours of entertainment.

Climbing with our bosses

Dennis and Chuck came to the city for Christmas so we decided to try something new and take them climbing.
Here they are at the Hanger, the best gym in the city.

Chuck's first wall climbing experience.

In the event, he got to the top and froze, trusting his rope only when his arms failed.
