Hanging out in Cochrane during the beginning of summer. Really, it's just a lot of Henry and
Walter photos though.

Playing in Water Valley


Full size
We spent the day with Henry's friend Ty in Water Valley with Kristen and Mike. Here are the kids having
fun with a slip and slide.

And then playing with water balloons.

Walter having a nap.


Full size
We went to Bowness Park and Henry really liked the big spinning netty thing.


Full size
Henry REALLY liked the train that goes around the park.

Full size
Natalia is such an impressive Mom that she's feeding WHILE on the train with Henry and Walter!


Full size
Walter at 2 months.


Full size
The neighbours brought over some water balloons. Hilarity ensued.


Full size
This is me trying to take a picture of Walter and then he sneezed. It's funny.

Climbing with Levi


Full size
My friend Levi took the opportunity to spend July in Canmore with his family. It's a LOT better
than summer in Toronto, that's for sure! We took an afternoon to get some climbing in, although we
spent more time trying to find the climb than actual climbing. Here was a beautiful tiger lily in the
Kid Goat area as we searched for a climb called The Bell Route that we never found.


Full size
Here's Levi with Yam behind him.


Full size
We did actually find some bolts and climbed three pitches although for the life of us, we can't sort out
what route it was. There was more above us, it had a reasonably stiff start (like 5.9 or more), but
most of it was ~5.8-ish. Here's the link to our outing on Garmin Connect: HERE .

Henry and Walter having brother tummy time.


Full size
Henry enjoys playing with wheel barrows and lawn mowers at Canadian Tire.


Full size
We had a bit of an outing with Walter going by ambulance to Children's. It turns out he had a virus
and was dehydrated, but no other major problems. Phew!

Walter in an ambulance gurney.


Full size
The next day, Walter was a LOT happier!

Grandma G comes to visit


Full size
Grandma G came to help us out just after Canada Day. Here she is with a very happy Walter. My mom has
'magic baby arms' that can put any baby to sleep and we took advantage!

Walter in his Grandma Magnet shirt.


Full size
Walter in an alligator outfit from my Mom.


Full size
We had friends over for dinner while my Mom was here. There's Sarah (due any minute'), Bud, Levi, his
son Corbin, my Mom and Walter.


Full size
Nice shot of Bud and Sarah.

Henry wanted to play chess while at the local coffee shop.


Full size
We went to Spray Lakes Rec Centre for bouncy castle time and Henry wanted to play in the hockey nets.

Calgary Stampede time


Full size
While the boys didn't go to Stampede this year, that didn't stop them dressing up. Here's Walter's
first adventure with a cowboy hat.


Full size
Possibly the best photo of Natalia, Walter, and Henry. They're all smiling!


Full size
Henry with a cowboy hat and Mr Potato Head with a cowboy hat too.

for Natalia.

Full size
I took Carl to try outdoor rock climbing for the first time at Heart Creek.


Full size
Here he is, terrified for his life, trying to get over a bulge.


Full size
He made it to the top - it just took about 10 takes.
