A mixed bag of photos and videos from skiing at Nakiska and hanging out in Cochrane.

Walter telling us what happens when you swallow a dime a la Landon

Henry trying out glasses at the Calgary Science Centre.


Full size
I think these ones look like Aunty Maria's glasses.


Full size
Although these ones are hilarious.


Full size
Henry, Natalia, and Walter with glasses on.


Full size
I love the intensity in this picture. I think Walter will love electronics or at least destruction of them.


Full size
Henry playing with a motor and batteries.


Full size
Henry telling Walter to drink from the toilet at the Science Centre.

Henry and Walter in their Christmas sweaters.


Full size
The Fireside school has an outstanding playground where our boys had a blast.

Henry steering the ship.


Full size
Walter playing with the music maker.

Video of Walter on the music maker



Full size
How much does this little guy love playing at playgrounds??


Full size
We found a teeter totter that seats four.


Full size
Crushing each other and giggling on the slide.


Full size
Yup, they're having fun, until someone's crying.


Full size
We went to Cochrane Light-up this year, which the boys loved. Here are Henry, Rhys, and Ty enjoying the
free snacks and hot chocolate.

Skiing at Nakiska


Full size
Henry wanted to show me how much he remembered from last year's ski lessons together so we took out his new (to him)
helmet and goggles are enjoyed some sunshine at Nakiska.

Walter trying out skiing


Walter at Nakiska 1


Walter at Nakiska 2



Full size
Walter in the chair lift line, just owning skiing like a boss.


Full size
He kept saying 'Daddy, MORE!' and went down the magic carpet at least 10 times. I think this one will be hucking
his meat by the time he's 5.


Full size
Since the tubing park isn't up yet, there's a big mound of snow that the boys were playing on.

This wound up with Rhys knocking his front teeth out


So, of course Henry had to try it



Full size
Setting up the Christmas tree - the boys LOVED playing with the ornaments again. We had to institute an
'Ornaments ONLY ON THE TREE' rule since they love playing with the toys.


Full size
And, of course, the train around the tree is back in operation this year, much to my chagrin.


Full size
Look at these two LOVING the train though!


Full size
The boys loving the nativity we got last year from Rick and Janet.

Walter having fun at Canadian Tire



Full size
Trying to climb on the bear at Canadian Tire. Their buyer is hilarious and tries to buy the most obnoxious
craziest items so that the 'half-way' items don't seem so crazy.


Full size
Henry and I made a sweet train track one afternoon downstairs.


Full size
Our friends Kurt and Ana made the trip over for a visit with baby Kristina, what a cutie!


Full size
Henry being kind with baby Kristina.


Full size
Walter playing ping-pong with Daddy at Spray Lakes.


Full size
Again, the intensity is serious when he's watching a zamboni clean the ice.

Henry loving his new drone


I was super proud of Henry skiing enroute to the Bronze Chair at Nakiska here



Full size
Henry and I taking a selfie on the Bronze Chair. He was SUPER happy to ride the chair again.


Full size
This trip to Nakiska was also Henry's first one on the tubes, something he'll do again soon I'm sure.


Full size
Walter really likes to wait for Henry to get off the bus and then give him a big hug when he gets off.


Full size
The boys being cute.


Full size
Walter playing with the parts of the vehicle kit.

Quick zip into West Bragg


Full size
Louis and I went for a tour out to West Bragg since the conditions weren't optimal for ski touring.
It turns out they were excellent for cross-country skiing and we put on 20 km.


Full size
Check out the size of the snow crystals though. Thanks surface hoar!


Full size
Better macro shot of more than 1 cm surface hoar.
