Photos of Henry at the Calgary Corn Maze, Natalia and I at Oktoberfest, at the Fallentimber Meadery,
in Red Deer for Thanksgiving, hiking with my Mom, and Henry photos.

Here's a photo of Henry and our neighbour Emilia colouring in our living room.


Full size
Some nice sunset colours at our house.

Henry hanging out at the local indoor play place. Thank you Government of Alberta for funding this
facility - Henry LOVES it!


Full size
We went to the Fallentimber Meadery Celebration Event, but it wound up being pretty cold and Henry was
a bit of a monster so we didn't stay late. Here are Natalia and Maria enjoying some hopped mead in the
car on a warm-up break.


Full size
Henry was fascinated by the bees.


Full size
Some funny photos I found of my friend Lindsey.


Full size
Some winners of Erik O and I.


Full size
Natalia and I went to the Gluten-free Oktoberfest for my birthday this year and we dressed up. How cute is
my wife?!


Full size
We won the costume award, which entailed more beer. Thanks to our friend Jen for taking Henry for the night,
and to Carl for the cab ride to the train.


Full size
Our friends Lindsey and JRo showing how full they are.


Full size
We had a really interesting sunset one night during a chinook in October. This is looking EAST from Cochrane
and the sky was totally lit up.


Full size
Some really wild interesting clouds as the sun was going down on the OTHER SIDE of the sky.


Full size
I think it had something to do with having a big cloud bank on the west side and so the sun was lighting its
way to the other horizon line.

Grace's birthday and Thanksgiving


Full size
Grace invited us to her first birthday family party at an indoor playpark in Red Deer. Here's Grace in the
ball pit having fun.


Full size
Henry enjoyed pushing trains around amongst other things at this play place.


Full size
Henry pushing the train with Kale on it.

Henry finally on the train.

Henry and Grace on the train with Grandma G pushing.


Full size
Grace says, "I love this!"


Full size
They have a 'Ruckers-like' game section as well. Henry likes dunking basketballs.


Full size
Here he is driving Batman's car (kind of).


Full size
Landon playing with Grandma G in the ball pit and a dinosaur.


Full size
This little clownshow was going on right by the coffee shop. I just caught him as he had removed his hand.
Apparently, very 'North Red Deer'.


Full size
Luc, Henry, and Kale on Grace's hang-out couch.

Grace opening her first birthday present from us.


Full size
The 'Kissing Booth' got another life as a Mickey/Minnie booth. Grace had a hoot.


Full size
Grace hanging out in her rocker that was custom-made for her.


Full size
My brother treated us to a deep-fried turkey, although he had to hard-wire the safety to an 'off' position.


Full size
Natalia found a turkey centerpiece that Henry liked.


Full size
Henry trying out a hula hoop.

Grandma G and Henry go to Grotto Canyon


Full size
My mom joined us as we went for a short stroll near Canmore at Grotto Canyon.


Full size
Grandma G and Henry on the trail.


Full size
Grandma G, Henry, and I looking across the Bow River valley and seeing Wind Tower and Mt Lougheed.


Full size
Henry and I in the canyon at Grotto. Since the floods, this creek drainage is still in need of repair,
so this was as far as we made it on this outing.


Full size
Henry loves playing with diggers and throwing rocks in water. To do both at once is pretty sweet.


Full size
My mom and Natalia at Grotto Canyon.


Full size
We had lunch at Communitea (the yoga restaurant) and Henry enjoyed playing with their kitchen.


Full size
My mom thought this was a natural photo op in Canmore. Henry wasn't so sure.


Full size
This was the closest we got with the fire-red branches.


Full size
Our friend Mel and her son Owen are moving back to the city so we had them over for dinner and ice cream cake.
It's sad since visiting Mel for dinner one night was the reason we built in Cochrane.


Full size
I had a conference in Banff so took the opportunity for a quick stroll up Tunnel Mountain (under an hour
car-to-car). The fall has been really gorgeous here in southern Alberta this year.


Full size
I took Natalia's dad to the Flames-Oilers game. The Oilers looked a lot better than last season with
the addition of McJesus. Carl and I are enjoying our malted ice creams.


Full size
My mom bought Henry a kitchen and this was the box it came in. He likes hanging out in the box,
reading stories in there, and using markers in there.


Full size
You can see some of the stickers and colouring he's done in here.


Full size
Look Mom, the markers write on me too!


Henry at the Calgary Corn Maze


Full size
Natalia had found out about the Calgary Corn Maze so we took Henry, along with Maria and Grandpa Carl.
The maze itself is a bit out of scope for Henry, but he enjoyed the many activities here. Here he is
looking out at the corn maze.


Full size
Henry, Natalia, and Maria at the Calgary Corn Maze 18 Oct 2015.


Full size
Maria and Henry in the corn. Would you say they are Children of the Corn???


Full size
Henry in the corn in his new John Deere cowboy boots.


Full size
Henry on a tricycle.


Full size
Henry LOVED the big corn ball.

Another one of Henry and the corn ball.

Video of Maria and Henry on the slide



Full size
Henry really enjoys playing in dirt. I think like most boys.


Full size
This tractor was the highlight of Henry's trip to the Corn Maze. The tractor pulls along people for
a ride at roughlt 2.5 miles/hour.


Full size
Henry was thrilled.


Full size
Henry, Natalia, and Grandpa Carl as Henry is trying to get a closer look at the tractor.


Full size
Maria taking Henry on another slide.


Full size
The Corn Maze folks do an outstanding job of having activities for all ages. This was a water pump station
with hand pumps at either side and you drop ducks into the water that the pump brings up. Again,
Henry LOVED it.


Full size
Natalia, Henry, Grandpa Carl, and Maria on a big chair. This was the best photo I could take as Henry
wanted to get back on another slide. At least Maria's looking!
