Some photos from hanging out in Cochrane, June 2018.

Here is my brother's house as he turns 40.


Full size
In the wind with the family as well.


Full size
Henry took Natalia's sunglasses at our sushi place in town - "The Bubble Wall" that Henry likes.


Full size
I'm not sure what he's considering here but he's definitely pondering something.


Full size
We went to Calaway the day it opened for the year since Henry had marked it on the calendar. He
can't wait until he can ride the big roller coaster, although after having ridden a big coaster at
Disney now, I'm not sure he likes roller coasters.

Henry on the kid swings.


Full size
Natalia and Walter on his first ride - the Baja Buggies.


Full size
Our whole family on the airplanes at Calaway Park.

Natalia, Henry, and Walter on a ride at Calaway.


Full size
This is actually from last month in Swift Current at the Broncos suite.


Full size
Henry and I pulled out my telescope to play with one day when Mommy wasn't home and Walter was napping.


Full size
Henry and Walter playing with the water table in the back yard.


Full size
One of Henry's recent discoveries at the Kimmer.


Full size
It turns out Walter LOVES ice cream sandwiches.


Full size
Walter playing with Henry's microscope.


Full size
The neighbours over playing with the water table.

Walter and one of the neighbours hanging out in the back yard.

Natalia helping Henry learn to ride a bike.


Full size
Henry and Emilia looking at clouds one afternoon and deciding which one looked like puppies.


Full size
I think this is amazing that one of our members of Parliament used the phrase 'gong show' in Question Period.

Grace and Henry go to Calaway


Full size
Grace and her family came down to hang out with Henry and go to Calaway Park.


Full size
Grace and Henry taking funny Calaway pictures.


Full size
Grace wears a larger hat so in order to see, she has to look down the brim, which I find hilarious.
Here they are on the airplanes with my sister Renee.


Full size
Renee, Grace, and Henry from our plane with Walter.


Full size
Walter and Henry on the loopy ride across from the planes. I don't think Henry is too pleased that he
has to share his seat with his brother.


Full size
Henry and Grace in the new dino ride.


Full size
Grace and Henry give the thumbs up on Grace's first ride on the kid's roller coaster.


Full size
Grace and Henry on the trucks.


Full size
Grace, Henry, and Walter on the boats. This is about 20 seconds before Walter tries to make a break
for it and I had to take him off the ride.


Full size
Another highlight of Grace's visit was playing water balloons in the backyard.


Full size
Henry showed Grace how these balloons worked (fill them all up off the hose and throw them).


Full size
Grace and Henry with the water table and the water backpack.

Video of Grace and Henry playing



Full size
We figured Walter was old enough now, we pulled out our custom Muppets. Here is Walter with
Professor Mustache.


Full size
And here's Henry with the Chef.


Full size
Both Muppets came with a clingy sticker book to make your own Muppet and this is the guy Henry made.
Walter is waving his light saber for good measure.

A tour into Big Hill Springs


Full size
We decided to take a walk into Big Hill Springs to enjoy a bit of spring time sunshine. Here's Henry
on a bridge.


Full size
This was the first time we tried Walter in the backpack and he did pretty well.


Full size
Here's Walter chasing Henry on the trail. Highlights for Henry were seeing some worms and caterpillars
on trees. For Walter, it was mostly just walking on trail and trying to chase his brother.


Full size
Since we were planning a visit to Kennedy Space Centre, we've been watching a lot of rocket launches.
Henry said, "Daddy, this is a Falcon 9 rocket".


Full size
I took Walter to the Parent Link for the first time and he loved it. Here he is killing it with the
hammer and the cups.


Full size
Here's Walter enjoying some space at Chapters in Calgary at the train table.


Full size
Henry was pretty jacked to find a pumping station clearing out the silt from our local pond park.


Full size
Henry getting stories from Grandma Wendy and Grandpa Carl.

Video of Henry making Walter giggle



Full size
I happened to be in Victoria and needed to be in Seattle so I took the float plane down.


Full size
Check out the size of these pontoons.


Full size
The tiny cockpit. This plane sat 10 passengers with one up front.


Full size
This is the Hood Canal bridge in Washington state.


Full size
A waste water treatment plant as I'm landing in Seattle.


Full size
Downtown Seattle from the air.


Full size
The Space Needle from the air.


Full size
The best luggage storage on the plane.


Full size
Since hotels were loser expensive, I took an airbnb on a boat in Lake Union. This is the inside.


Full size
The queen sized bed.


Full size
The tiny bathroom or 'head' as it's called on a boat.


Full size
The Sharon Lee in Seattle.


Full size
Not a bad place to call home, although I think in rainy winter it would suck.


Full size
I went for a neat run around Lake Union, although I screwed up and missed my bridge back. This is a
cool old gas works on the north end of Lake Union.


Full size
I think this was the bridge I missed to U W.


Full size
My plane back to Canada.


Full size
I don't know whether it'll ever stop being cool to ride a pontoon aircraft.


Full size
Coming into downtown Vancouver over Stanley Park.


Full size
A look into Stanley Park.

Landing by the convention centre.
