Matt and Nic drove down to Calgary with their boys Evan and Andrew for the weekend.
Since Nic had a bachelorette party, the boys (and Natalia) made a day trip out of going
to Calaway Park.

Here are Natalia and Andrew making their way into Calaway Park.

Evan and Matt took a ride on some old cars with Evan driving!


Full size
Evan looks like he's having a hoot driving the old car with the Dream Machine swing ride behind them.


Full size
Evan was JUST barely tall enough to join Natalia on the Dream Machine swings. Little did he know that
Natalia would have ridden that ride without him!

Evan and Natalia are waving to us from their swing ride.

If you look closely, you can see Natalia's pink and blue striped top and Evan holding on for a fun
ride. He said, "This ride was high!"


Full size
Matt and Evan next hopped on another ride. Evan wasn't appreciating having his photo taken, but he held
still for a few minutes. Hey Matt, how come this ride is sagging to the left?


Full size
This ride also got a big smile from Evan.


Full size
I rode the planes with Evan and he seemed to also enjoy that one. Check out how seriously he took the
security precautions with both hands on the bar.


Full size
The safety precautions relaxed a little bit as we got closer to the ground.


Full size
With Natalia helping out extensively, Matt was able to enjoy the rides with both Evan and Andrew.
Here's Andrew showing off his drooling skills.

After a relatively slow balloon Ferris wheel with Natalia, Evan sacked up and hopped on the pirate ship with
his dad. He looks a little concerned as they get started here.


Full size
There's that same security regulations follower.

Here's Evan burying his head into Matt's chest.


Full size
We went on a train ride that Andrew could actually enjoy too. Surprisingly, after a solid 3 hours, the
boys both did really well.

As Matt went to go change Andrew, Natalia and I took Evan to try out the 'Stinky Feet' game where you try to
shoot water guns at targets. Here's Evan getting set up for it.


Full size
Natalia helped Evan aim a little bit here.


Full size
Through a combination of luck (and a very generous other player), Evan won a stuffed Banana Ninja he named
"Banannie". Yup, creative just like his old man.

Because it was the second last weekend for Calaway Park to be open, they set up the whole park in Hallowe'en
theme. Evan thought the skeletons were pretty neat.
