Here are some photos and video from living in Cochrane this month.

Walter looking dapper.

Henry playing with his friend Ben at Gracie's bday party.


Full size
I stopped in to see baby Katrina at Kurt and Ana's. What a sweetie!


Full size
All she did was sleep and snuggle. Good times!


Full size
I took Walter and Henry for a walk to the Kimmer for a treat. It looks like Walter will be an
ice cream sandwich kind of kid.


Full size
Henry of course loves popsicles and fudgsicles.

Video of Walter at the bouncers

Walter with a ridiculously cute sweater eating Tim Bits.


Full size
My sister Danielle got Henry a 'find the gemstone' plaster game. Needless to say, lots of hammering
using a wooden dowel, and he got a few gems, but he loved it.

Video of Walter saying 'OWL':

Walter and Henry enjoying popsicles surrounding ice cream pops.

Video of Walter saying 'pop'



Full size
Walter LOVES playing hockey! "PUCK" he'll yell and then go running around for it.

Video of Walter and Henry giggling



Full size
Henry is making the jump from 'I'm hanging out at Nakiska' to 'Let's go skiing Daddy!'. Here he is
even trying to carry his skis in the parking lot.

Full size
I think what finally moved the progress here was when I took Henry onto the bronze chair, an actual
chairlift. I had to basically snowplow the whole way down, but he was hooked. "Daddy, I want to go
back on the Bronze Chair!"


Full size
The best usher in the Saddledome (Duncan) got Justin and I upgraded for the third period against the
red wings. Not bad seats I'd say for the big win!


Full size
Crazy Carl and Jen got the boys a snow penguin mold. Yes, I know it's ridiculous, but the boys love
making penguins and then stomping on them.


Full size
Henry got to take his GT out for the first time of the year. We're way behind on snow this year,
if only so Henry can rock out the snowracer.


Full size
After making a few snow penguins, Henry's friend Emilia wanted one too.


Full size
And naturally, what do you do once you make snow penguins? You clearly have to paint them.
Yes, I married a grade 1 teacher.


Full size
Henry is making his 'Mommy' - "Daddy I have to make sure she has a nice pink necklace."


Full size
Henry and our 'snow penguin family'. Yes, I made mine into Crosby.


Full size
A classy Oilers fan after the Flames crushed them again. He paid big money for those seats just to let
Monahan know what he thinks.

Henry and Walter at the Science Centre


Walter trying out the air column



Full size
A nice look at the Bugaboos from 30,000 feet enroute to Victoria for work. I'll get back there soon.


Full size
Walter has shown early interest in the climbing wall, which is good.


Full size
We went to Spray Lakes for Henry's friend Ty's bday party. Walter got to come and enjoy the open
gym time.


Full size
This was Henry this morning showing me his shorts - "Daddy, my kneecaps needed some air". I called him a
'token' from a US college basketball team, but he didn't really get it. I think it's also funny since
Henry's socks look like sandals.


Full size
The boys decided to cover themselves in stickers.

The boys playing playdoh.

Hanging out in Vegas for CES


Full size
Since we're second-class citizens, we stayed at the Stratosphere instead of our corporate hotel.
Not a bad view though.


Full size
Selfie at 107 stories off the Strip.


Full size
Not the worst spot in the city.


Full size
I rode the Big Shot, since I'm a big shot. It's actually really awesome for a quick ride.


Full size
This guy likes it! This might be my last photo in these shades since I'm an idiot and forgot them
in my front jacket pocket for one of the other rides.


Full size
We went back up to the Big Shot as well as the other two rides for a late night session with Danny,
Brian, and Eric.


Full size
This was the ride I broke my sunglasses on. It's actually really awesome.


Full size
Looking at the Big Shot at night.

Making fun of Brian at the Stratosphere



Full size
Danny and I went on this one, which was cool since it basically swings out with ~900 feet of nothing
below you.


Full size
Danny says 'Oh yeah Baby!'


Full size
I ran into my good friend Steve Ranta at an ADI event. Man, he needs to come back to the fold...


Full size
This was one of my favourite inventions at CES - if you need 24 loaves of fresh bread an hour.


Full size
While we didn't get to watch the opening event for the game, just walking to the game was a fair
amount of an event. Check out the sculpture in the 'Park'.


Full size
I thought this guy's homemade jean jacket was pretty awesome.


Full size
T-Mobile Arena is definitely one of the loudest rinks I've been to.


Full size
We wound up going for a ride on the roller coaster at NY, NY, one of my favourite roller coasters.
Of course, we can't take photos on it, but I did like this Jelly Belly sculpture of Lady Liberty.


Full size
My buddy Eric from the nicest view of any meeting room we went to for CES.

One of our ads up on the convention centre. Pretty serious signage actually this year for us, which is cool.
