We decided to take our Remembrance Day long weekend to go see my Grandma Perrault and to
do some family visiting. We got to see my nephew Luc, my brother and his wife, along with
my cousin Kali and her parents, and my aunty Paulette and uncle Dan.

We drove to Swift Current to spend some time with my brother Denis, his wife Leah, and my god-son Luc.
We decided to drive the rest of the way to Ponteix to go see my grandma Perrault along with my aunt and
uncle. We were treated to an excellent dinner of souvlaki and a bit of a naked baby show. Here is Luc
shortly after Denis realized he forgot to pack diapers so Luc went in the tub for a cleaning.

This starts the photo series of Luc getting re-diapered, but without diapers. The executive decision
was made to make him a towel diaper, wrapped in packing tape, and finished with a Walmart bag.
Here you see the Priority Courier (only the best!) tape and the towel work.

Luc wasn't that thrilled during this portion. Possibly because Denis kept getting tape on his skin.

Here you see Natalia working on the Walmart bag.

I like how you can read 'walmart.ca' on the front of Luc's 'diaper'.


Full size
Again, he seems happy enough. Who would have thought his father is so forgetful?

This might be my favourite photo. All class Denis.

Luc, walking around with a full bottom, was pretty entertaining. The swishing sound of the plastic bag
was pretty funny as well.

So, Denis volunteered us to take Luc to the spa with us after Natalia successfully found a
cancellation for the sold-out weekend at Temple Garden Spa. We were excited for the opportunity to spend
time with our nephew, although we were a little surprised at the amount of stuff one child needs! Here
he is in his playpen.

Luc has his eye teeth coming in so his cheeks were a little red. Here is Natalia with him in the elevator
heading to the pools.


Full size
Luc really enjoyed being in the hot pools. Here he is in the portion of the pool that is outside.


Full size
Look how happy he is playing in the pool.


Full size
Nati was pleased to have Luc time in the pool.


Full size
I like the look on his face here.


Full size
I positioned my camera here so that it looks like he's peeing.

Why yes, that is a 'chevron' I'm sporting on my upper lip. Thanks for noticing! You can feel free to
donate HERE .


Full size
I think that Luc really enjoyed spending time with his Aunty Nati.


Full size
Since we didn't have an eating chair, we improvised and Natalia used the office chair pulled in close
to the office desk in our room. As long as he stayed sitting, he did really well. The yogurt on his face
is pretty funny.


Full size
Once Luc found the remote control, it was all over. I think this look on his face is quality.

After seeing how much fun Luc had at my aunty Paulette and uncle Dan's using Robin's Dora couch,
Natalia had to buy him one too. After a local Walmart run, we were now one couch richer.
For whatever reason, Luc seemed to enjoy driving his head into the couch. I don't get it.

Natalia and Luc reading a book in bed. I might note here that Luc fell asleep while lounging around
8:30pm and promptly woke up at 7am, with only a small amount of moving around through the night. This
baby business is EASY! (just kidding).


Full size
Sunday morning, we went for another pool session and Luc discovered the fountain again.


Full size
He had fun learning about pressure and playing in the water.


Full size
I tried to take a group photo in the pool.


Full size
This is a little better, but Luc isn't looking.

We had a nice lunch of smoked salmon, homemade soup, and veggies with Denis and Leah before
making our way back to Alberta. Luc tried on the toque Nati found him in Seattle but kept it on
for roughly 1 second.
