Here are some fun photos of Grace and Logan visiting Cochrane, and the boys just
generally loving life.

Henry pulling Grace around Spray Lakes



Full size
Grace convinced Henry to pull her around the Spray Lakes turf time. He was so excited to
see his cousin that he was zipping all over the place with her.


Full size
Logan also really enjoyed the turf time party too.

Walter zipping around on wheelie carts like a maniac


Having a race at turf time



Full size
Walter LOVES playing with equipment in my lab and digital multi meters are no exception.
Here he is testing batteries with me.


Full size
Walter using my oscilloscope in the lab.


Full size
Adjusting the trigger timing on my scope.


Full size
I took Walter for his first skiing of the season at Nakiska as it opened in early November.


Full size
Walter yearns to ride on the big ski lifts, but he needs to decide to want to stop before that happens
or it's a LONG ski down.

Walter working on skiing



Full size
Walter killing it on some playground equipment near our house.


Full size
Walter found my Xbox 360 controllers and he thinks they're pretty awesome to play with.


Full size
This little happy man was pretty excited to go sledding with Rhys and Grayson without Henry.

Happy times with Walter and friends on their sleds.


Full size
More happy times with Walter.


Full size
Having snacks at the clubhouse with friends.


Full size
Rhys really likes hot chocolate with coloured marshmallows in it!


Full size
Ty also loves his hot cocoa.


Full size
A pretty sweet spot to sled.


Full size
I think I counted Walter climbing back up the hill at least 35 times on this day and
carried his sled the whole time.


Full size
Natalia has far more patience with our boys than I do and she does crafts with the boys.
Here's Walter being diligent with his painting of a nutcracker.


Full size
I took the boys for a wander around the river valley which Henry loved.


Full size
I think it's hilarious that Walter was out in his Muddy Buddy (his yellow suit).


Full size
This ice chunk is actually bigger than Walter.


Full size
Henry likes throwing rocks and ice into the river.


Full size
This little Muddy Buddy on the ice working on his skating.

Full size
Look at this smile coming down the slide at a local playground.


Full size
These two little monsters were so tired after spinning that they 'needed a break'.


Full size
They were riding down the slide 'together.


Full size
We played hockey at our house and Walter got to try out his new hockey stick.


Full size
Natalia got a gnome for her godparents and the boys painted sections of it each.


Full size
Results of Natalia's crafting circle.


Full size
Back of Boris. My contribution was the sweater and the lightning bolt.


Full size
Henry painted the gnome's hat.


Full size
I took the boys back to turf time for more fun. Here's Henry enjoying the worm.


Full size
Walter trying to get 'wormy' to ride the wheelie carts.


Full size
And then falling off 'wormy'.


Full size
This is how Walter likes to ride around.

Full size
Brandt singing karaoke (a bit backlit), but he was REALLY happy to find this microphone.


Full size
Getting Natalia snuggles.

Henry skating 'SUPER FAST'!



Full size
Walter managed to get his first chin scar, a bit later than I was expecting. Amazingly it wasn't from
flying off playground equipment, but actually falling and splitting it on the toilet.


Full size
Natalia was totally on top of it though and brought snacks and everything to keep him amused.


Full size
Walter proud of his chin scar and his Steri-strips to keep his chin closed.


Full size
I gave in slightly early this year and allowed the tree to go up on November 29th. And the train
made another appearance this year too, which the boys LOVE.


Full size
And here's the train.


Full size
Christmas in our living room.


Full size
Playing with friends Gracie and Jackson at Henry's school park.


Full size
They pulled books out of the mini library and read on the picnic table.


Full size
And then having snacks in the back of the car.


Full size
Having a car party with Gracie in the front seat, thinking they're ruling the world.


Full size
Natalia's friend Janice often gets the boys a gingerbread house, and this year was no different.
These two monkeys were thrilled to be eating candy and decorating a house.


Full size
One of Walter's favourite Christmas decorations is the nutcracker.


Full size
Filling the house with candy.


Full size
Look at the intensity of focus.


Full size
Henry was proud of his little tree.


Full size
Both boys thrilled with their decorated gingerbread house.

Full size
I went for a fat bike ride with Bike Cochrane's secretary Shanna.


Full size
Fat bikes with the Man of Vision.


Full size
Shanna riding around Sunset with me.


Full size
Our trail remediation project has held up through the first of the winter.


Full size
Me riding a fat bike in the sunshine.


Full size
Look at this little hockey player, already with a chin scar!


Full size
Walter chasing the puck. The other half of the ice had two Edge skaters and they shared pucks with us
and played pass with Walter too.

Leaning into a slap shot.
