Some photos of Henry and early season hiking April 2016

It turns out that in addition to ice cream, Henry really likes popsicles and creamsicles. In this case,
he specifically likes the blue creamsicles. I know, it's ridiculous.

Grace, Henry's cousin, joined us at the zoo for a fun cousin outing with Landon and Kale.


Full size
A very moody photo of Kale, along with Grace at the entrance to the dinosaur area. Henry and Landon
are quite scared of the dinosaurs as of late.


Full size
In addition to the meerkats, Henry also now quite likes the baby tortoises.

Henry and Kale in the playground.

I got dragged up into the kids' playground since the boys wanted to climb up this wall. That's Henry
making his way to the slide.

Full size
Yeah, Henry knows what to do with this stuff.


Full size
Henry is the proud owner of a used bike. He also likes to try out bikes at Canadian Tire.


Full size
Henry also really likes globes. This one is at the Cochrane library and it's a hit. There is also a moon
globe there that he likes to play with.


Full size
Going to my car dealership with Henry is pretty easy since they have a sweet train table along with a
really well-stocked kids' kitchen.


Full size
Henry making his way through a foot-long hot dog. He did pretty well.


Full size
And of course, if we go to a Flames game, Henry wants ice cream.


Full size
Henry playing on his train table with the new configuration. I mostly took this picture so that
I can piece together the table when he wrecks it.

My friend Rene and new colleague Jordan chowing down at Mike's Pastry in Boston. I love cannolis!

Carl and I started our hiking season with a strong first hike. Our initial plan for a short hike went sideways
with a wildlife closure and we wound up on a different trail. Here is a look at the sisters behind Carl.


Full size
We definitely found some snow on the trail. But it was to get much worse before it got better.


Full size
A look at a mountain Carl called Mt Colonblow.


Full size
A look at Centennial Ridge.

Carl looking back at the Bow Valley and Pigeon Mountain.

This meadow seemed good until we started sinking into our waist in snow on the trail.

Video look around from the ridge where the snow finally stopped

An idea of the depth of snow in some places.


Full size
Yes, that is up to high shorts level.


Full size
Up to hips.


Full size
Thank God I borrowed Carl's gaiters.
