Some photos from Luc's first communion, along with visiting
in Sask


Full size
We made the drive to Sask this May to see Luc celebrate his first Eucharist, Reconciliation, and Confirmation.
Here's 'Phil Kessel' at the Brooks McD's, who both our boys absolutely hated.


Full size
Once we arrived, Henry joined in on the waterslide party (thanks Danielle and Dalen for hosting in
the Bronco suite). Then, they got to have a pizza party at the suite, which the kids just LOVED.


Full size
Grace still really likes to hold Walter and tried to get some snuggles here.


Full size
At the hotel in the bunk bed room, the kids were going bananas.

Singing Happy Birthday in the Bronco Suite

After a little sleep night, the kids were still raring to go, and Grace and Henry joined forces at a
local park.

On the spider netting.


Full size
Henry had found Luc's binoculars (they called them vinoculars) and Walter wanted to check them out.


Full size
Here are the 2017 babies - Logan, Jack, then Walter. Hard to believe that Walter is the oldest.


Full size
Here are my Mom's grandchildren - all 8 of them. From L to R - Grace, Henry, Walter, Luc holding
Logan, Kale, Landon holding Jack.


Full size
Grandma G and all of the littles, dressed for church.


Full size
Colette and Rick also made the tour to Swift and got in on baby snuggles.

Visiting Great Grandma P


Full size
We made the trip down to Ponteix to see my Grandma P. Here's Walter rocking out in her walker.


Full size
He thought it was pretty cool.


Full size
Henry had to show Grandma P that he could do a 'jelly roll' like his Mom.

Walter, Henry, and Grandma P


Full size
Walter thought this puzzle holder was pretty cool.


Full size
After being up for a walk before 5am on this day, Walter needed a nap, but he pushed through it,
and got some snuggles with Grandma in.

In Saskatoon visiting Grandma G


Full size
One of Henry's favourite spots at my Mom's is her fountain outside. It turns out that Walter likes it too.


Full size
We got to have a visit with Carl and Wendy at their place. Here is Carl showing Henry how he can
put on an extra pair of pants without taking off his shoes.


Full size
Our for a walk in the neighbourhood.


Full size
Henry and Carl on the 'Buddy Bench'.

Full size
A little better look at Walter's face.


Full size
My mom invited us into her school so that Henry could see baby ducks. He thought it was pretty
awesome and giggled the whole time.


Full size
Henry, Grandma G, Duckzilla, and Tyrone (seriously the ducks' names).


Full size
Henry, Grandma G, and the ducks.


Full size
Henry and I at my mom's school as we're feeding the ducks.


Full size
Henry got to play at my Mom's neighbour's house. This is Kale driving Henry around on his tractor.


Full size
Henry loves to play with the toys and bikes in my Mom's garage. Here he is on a trike with his
brother coming along for the ride.


Full size
For Mother's Day, we took my Mom to the Saskatoon Inn for the most decadent brunch I've ever seen.
They had standard brunch fare, then a poutine station, roast beef station, turkey station, crepe
station, massive dessert station, taco station, along with a dude making custom drinks with fire.
They also had a clown making balloon animals, a clown on a unicycle, a magician, and bouncy castles
for the kids. Seriously. It was something.

Kinsmen Park


Full size
Henry really enjoyed the Ferris wheel here.


Full size
Saskatoon is pretty flat so you can see a long ways from the top of this thing.


Full size
Sarah, Logan, Natalia, Henry, Walter, and I enjoying the train ride at Kinsmen Park courtesy of my mom.


Full size

Full size
Henry and I doing a selfie.


Full size
I was kind of amazed that Henry wanted to try this. This is the mini zip line and he's waiting his turn.


Full size
Yup, he killed it.


Full size
And then wanted to do the high one!


Full size
Henry on the carousel, and actually riding a horse!


Full size
And I rode a chicken - Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

My mom laughing so hard she runs out of breath - the Wheeze


Drumheller


Full size
On the long drive home, we pulled into Drumheller and Henry actually wanted to walk up into the
T-rex's mouth! Here he is looking out over the Badlands.


Full size
Henry and Walter hanging out in a T-rex's mouth.


Full size
Yes, it's tacky, but the boys loved it.


Full size
Walter thought this was pretty cool too, and enjoyed touching the bones inside the walkway too.


Full size
Henry running around the spray park under the big T Rex.


Full size
This is what he thought was awesome - spraying people, but not getting sprayed himself.


Full size
Here's the microscope that Janet and Rick got Henry, but Walter thinks it's cool.


Full size
More water table fun.


Full size
Walter thinks it's fun too.
