Some fun photos and videos of the boys out skiing and sledding in Feb 2021, and just overall
having fun playing together.


Full size
Here are Henry and Walter lugging their sleds up for laps at St Tim's hill.

This was an interesting day - Walter LOVE LOVE LOVES his pillowcase that Grandma G made for him, but loved
it a little too much and eventually loved it to shreds. We were worried that he'd struggle to give it up.
But here it is after he threw it out. "It had holes Daddy. It was done." Attaboy - don't keep garbage!

Ski trip to Castle Mountain


Full size
Since our KHMR trip fell by the wayside due to COVID rules not allowing child care for us, we decided
to take the boys and go to Castle Mountain instead. Here's our amazing arrival dinner care of
Stacey and Alf's friends who make Indian food. Yummy!

Here's the sweet inside of our condo DIRECTLY next to the green chair.

Some of the individual treasures in the condo - I like the M and M guy.

Sweet sign above the exit, complete with typo.

One of my favourite pieces of art in the condo. This makes me smile that a group of 4 ladies
with bikini tops are just out for a tour hucking their beavers with long straight skis.

So, it wasn't warm the week we were at Castle. This was what we woke up to one morning and I'm sure it
was even colder overnight. They had to wait for it to warm up before they could turn on the chairs.

Gorgeous morning looking at Mt Haig.

This is Henry and Walter at ~-30 deg C (although in the sun) IMMEDIATELY out the back door of
our condo or 'holiday house'. This is true 'ski-in, ski-out' and great to be able to bring the
boys in to warm-up.


Full size
The upside to cold weather is short line-ups!


Full size
Walter insisted on going all the way to the Huckleberry Chair (which meant Daddy had a sore back).
Walter was most excited about this snowcat though. I borrowed Stacey's hula hoop which made it much
easier to come down with Walter as I hadn't brought the Edgie-Wedgie for this trip. He's making
pretty good progress though!

I absolutely love this picture Henry drew - it's the 1A/22 intersection in Cochrane and it has three dump
trucks and one car at it. So awesome!

Ridiculously long video of Walter opening presents

Building train tracks is much more my style - less mess!

We had our first family restaurant outing in 6 months at the Georgetown Inn. Henry was jacked to
have a welsh rabbit sandwich (grilled cheese) and ice cream for dessert!

I took the boys for a playground outing to Jumping Pound where they were most excited by the snow pile.

And with the penguin too.


Full size
Henry found a 'Fart Launcher 3000' at our first visit to Toys R Us in months. It's funny because Walter
commonly tells us he's invented something and it always has a '3000' at the end of the name.


Full size
I took the boys for a snowshoe into the ravine by our house.

Some fun photos from me outside

My buddy Andrew coming down a chute at Nakiska. See - there can be good snow there too!

We went fat biking with Shanna and Kevin and it went from -9 and sunny to -20 and a blizzard in
about the span of an hour.
