Henry and Walter playing, along with a visit from Grace


Full size
I took the boys to the newly-refreshed red park for a play. It's pretty nice!

Henry with no shirt and Natalia and I celebrating Mother's Day. Thank to my mom for getting the cake!


Full size
A hilarious book I found at our local library. It seems fitting for my buddy Rene.

Walter playing with a typewriter at the library.


Full size
Grace and Henry giving the 'thumbs up 3 second safety check' from Calaway Park, even though they're
driving Grace's car in Red Deer.


Full size
Henry, Walter, and their friends Rhys and Grayson went to Calaway for opening Sunday even though
the weather was terrible. They still had lots of fun.


Full size
Henry and Rhys on the airplanes.


Full size
How much fun are they having here?


Full size
Walter came with me and he's not too sure what to say here.


Full size
Henry and Rhys on the trucks.


Full size
Walter killing it with the steering wheel at the trucks.


Full size
This might be my new favourite photo of Rhys. Henry insisted on going on the new Bumble Blast roller coaster
ride and even though his buddy Rhys doesn't really like rides, he hopped on. His dad Alf doesn't appear to
be too thrilled with managing a melting down toddler though...

Full size
Henry loves his outdoor school where he winds up at least this muddy at the end of it.


Full size
When we were working on our backyard, the highlight for Henry was finding worms. Note the ball of worms
he just put onto the table from his cup of worms he was collecting.


Full size
Henry and I took a C-train ride to the Devonian Gardens to have a fun Daddy-Henry outing when it was raining
cats and dogs in Calgary.


Full size
Henry and I got slurpees.


Full size
And we went to the new Calgary library, which had a great kids' area, complete with Lego table.


Full size
We went for a play date with our friends Graham and Kayla and their kids Fisher and Lillian. Of course
the highlight is always jumping in the creek or water source of any kind.

Grace comes to visit


Full size
In return for having Henry a couple of weekends before, we graciously hosted Grace for the weekend. Here, she
and Henry are bringing her bag upstairs, which I found funny.


Full size
Of course, we had to go to Calaway Park. This is at the opening of the park. Henry would never take a picture
with a mascot, but Grace was full speed ahead.

Walter on the carousel. He LOVED choosing and then riding on his horse.


Full size
Grace and Henry on the log ride with Mommy. I was actually kind of impressed that Henry went on this since
he hasn't done it since he was little. See the last time here HERE .

On the train giving the 'Calaway Park two thumb safety check'. Walter can't quite do it but he puts his
thumb and forefinger out that's pretty close.

Walter on the trucks



Full size
After Calaway Park, I took Grace and Henry to mini golf while Walter napped. They were pretty excited to
pick out their own golf balls by colour and it's FREE for under 12! Thanks Cochrane Riverview Golf Course!

Installing my photo panel


Full size
My talented brother-in-law Justin agreed to help me figure out a mounting strategy for my panoramic photo
panel that I've been working on for a few years. He had the presence of mind to figure we'd need a
scaffold so he brought one.


Full size
Sorting out the exact position of the screw holes.


Full size
Our deck with no glass on the panels.


Full size
The one big unknown was what we wound find when we took the railing off. Of course, there was a cap
that we didn't know and it meant that Justin's custom threaded mount couldn't fit. Out came the Dremel!


Full size
Panel mounted in position.


Full size
Justin with the panel mounted. Thanks Justin!


Full size
Panel complete!


Full size
On Henry's last outdoor school day, I was able to come see where they've been having a party for the last
few months. Here are Rhys, Henry, and Ty having rice krispie cake.
