We were invited to camp at group site 7 (4 spots) with our friends Christina/Mike, Erin/Blaine, and
Gord/Monica and their families. Here are some photos and videos from the weekend in July.


Full size
First some funny photos from home - Henry told Natalia that he wanted to make gingerbread men cookies
in July, so that's what they did.

Nice iced finished product.

I tried to take a photo when we stopped in at D's house in Red Deer, but you can see what we wound up with.


Full size
As expected.

At Old Macdonald Farm


Full size
Here is Henry and his friend Ben hanging out having a bite to eat with their bike helmets on.


Full size
One of Henry's favourite friends is his friend Gracie and they got to ride bikes and spend a lot
of time together on this trip. Here they are on the swing at the park.


Full size
Ben, Gracie, and Henry at the park.


Full size
One of the reasons Old Macdonald Farm is such a hit with families is they have a ridiculous number
of fun things for kids to do, like ride the train. This is Henry, Gracie, and Walter waiting in line to
ride the 'Triple Nickel'.

Gracie, Henry, and Ben got to ride the horsie at the arcade for 25 cents.

The kids got to play some cool arcade games like Ms Pacman.

And some fun pinball games too.

And race some fun car arcade games.

In spite of the rain we got when we first arrived, we actually got two smoking beach days.
Both Henry and Gracie like to bury their feet in the sand.

Full size
I took a quad bike out for a spin and the boys loved watching from the front seat.

This was on Gord's birthday and he took his son George on the lawnmower-powered swings, again for 25 cents.

And yes, there are two different places to get ice cream at Old Macdonald Farm, one at the beach!

Ditto.

Again this year, we've been camping with Walter in the big tent in his Pack and Play and that seems
to be working better.

It turns out jazzy Walter likes ice cream

Our little Walter is definitely a jazzy little man and is full of P and V every day.

Back in Cochrane

This should be Walter's first soccer card. He's not even registered for soccer but he thinks he is.
His monster socks just add to this one.


Full size
Henry and his soccer ball.

Henry at SportBall with his coach. Too bad they all have James Neal's number though.

The boys insisted on a trip to Calaway Park when we got home, so that's what we did.
