Grace and her parents and my Mom came to join us for the Cochrane Labour Day Rodeo Weekend.
First the solar eclipse
Southern Alberta wound up being ~90% for the viewing of the solar eclipse in Aug 2017. It
happened to be a day that I was taking a long weekend so Henry and I decided to go to the
Science Centre in Calgary to see the eclipse through a telescope. Well, we would been better
served by going to the Mitford Park event instead as it was a clown show at the Telus centre.
Here's a view of the line-up to see the telescope. Craziness.
After the moon had passed out of the sun's path, the line-up came down a lot and Henry and I lined
up to look at the sun anyway.
"Daddy, I got to see spots on the sun." Pretty cool for a three-year-old.
And then afterwards we got to hit up Peter's Drive-in. Yummy! And Henry ate like a real human
instead of having his bites cut up first.
Some Henry and Walter photos
Walter hanging out at our house. Check out the smiles!
Susi came down for a visit from Edmonton to meet Walter.
Susi brought Henry an abacus and he was pretty excited about it.
What a funny little guy! Thanks to Sus for this photo.
