Photos and videos from family visiting in Red Deer and visiting our friends at WEM.

First some skating with Henry

Henry had an afternoon skating with his friend Rhys at our local outdoor rink.

He decided he wanted to play goal.

And now with icing.

Christmas with my family

Singing Jingle Bells with Grandma G and cousins


Walter opening his present from Grandma G



Full size
For Christmas this year, we got together with my family in Red Deer. Henry is helping Walter open his gift.


Full size
Grandma G with all of her grandkids. I don't really know what face Landon is making here. It should be
said that Walter had just grabbed a candy cane off aunty Renee's tree prior to the photo.


Full size
Our little light-sensitive Henry about to blow out the candles on his shuttle cake.

Henry and Grace on tubes

Grace and Henry lugging their tubes uphill. More accurately, Grace convinced Henry to bring hers up the hill too.

Henry skating at a section of flooded ground at the park by Grace's house.

Grandma G wanted a photo that looked like a Christmas tree and she got it.

West Edmonton Mall with Scott and Amy


Full size
After checking in (and not getting our actual room for an hour), I took the boys for a zip in the mall.
They found this peacock made from petals.


Full size
They really liked these remote control boats and using the steering wheels.


Full size
Martin using the photo board and being Gretz.


Full size
Henry and Lucy doing the same.


Full size
The kids all loved their day at the World Waterpark. Here's Walter telling us he REALLY likes free
pop at the waterpark. No kidding.


Full size
Henry having a break from the waterpark. Henry went on exactly one waterslide on this trip.


Full size
Henry, Martin, and Lucy on the little train together.


Full size
Natalia and Walter on the train too.


Full size
Amy waving hello on the train.


Full size
Amy successfully convinced Lucy to go on the spinny yellow roller coaster, and after being initially
terrified, she loved it so much she went again a second time.


Full size
Scott and Amy on the yellow roller coaster that Scott's legs almost got stuck inside.


Full size
Scott and Amy and I on the yellow roller coaster.


Full size
If I could have gotten my shirt up, I would have done that too. Scotty and I also got to go on the
Mind Bender, the triple loop coaster which gave Scott whiplash since he can't follow directions.


Full size
Henry and I rode the animal go karts.


Full size
Natalia and Walter rode one of the animal stuffies too.


Full size
Our family at Galaxyland riding the stuffy gokarts.


Full size
The boys know to do the Calaway Park thumbs-up safety check. Yes, Walter puts up his pointer finger
but it's still awesome.

Full size
We played a bit of mini-golf as well, which was mostly just the boys throwing golf balls into the water.


Full size
I need to make some comment about the ball washer here, but I'm not going to.

Skiing with Walter at Nakiska


Full size
Due to Henry coming home from our Red Deer/Edmonton trip sick (shocking given the amount of germs), I took
Walter to ski at Nakiska, which he LOVED. Look at this smile - 'Daddy - again!' He skied the magic carpet
easily 15 times although really what he wanted to do was 'ski Walter self'. Once you learn to turn buddy.
