Some photos from Walter's bday party, the Science Centre, and the Cremona Aggie Days.


Full size
I bought the boys mini-golf season passes again as it's something they quite like. Here they
are playing mini-golf and having a blast.


Full size
I'd say it's less golfing than playing with golf clubs and doing things like sticking golf
balls into PVC pipes, but it's a fun outing regardless.


Full size
Henry teeing off with his putter at the driving range while Walter plays with the golf ball vacuum.

Henry working the golf ball vacuum too.

Big Box for Walter's bday


Full size
After we all recovered from COVID, Walter was able to host his bday party at Big Box in Calgary.
For the unitiated, this is the closest thing to Red Deer in Calgary. But, the boys loved it
as you can see at this climber.


Full size
Walter was pretty excited to be with his friend Grayson at Big Box.


Full size
On the big slides.


Full size
And the climbing walls.


Full size
Pretty happy boys to be playing together for the day.


Full size
Henry and his friend Rhys also got to come along for the party.


Full size
Rhys thought Big Box was pretty fun.


Full size
Jumping across big blown up balloons. What could possibly go wrong?


Full size
Walter liked this air guns as he could shoot little balls at his friend Grayson (and
anyone else in the general area).


Full size
Time for presents and treats!


Full size
Opening presents from Rhys and Grayson.


Full size
Walter was so excited to find this drawing tablet.


Full size
Although you'd never know it from this photo.


Full size
Natalia managed to get the Save-On bakery to make custom green cupcakes for his party.
Do you think Walter likes icing?


Full size
All kids like icing but I feel like our kids REALLY like icing.


Full size

Full size
Walter and Grayson show me their tongues.

All green, all the time.

Walter got to drive his own bumper car and he was pretty excited about it.

The boys finished their session with some arcade time. Weirdly, Henry enjoyed the bowling
game the most.


Full size
Walter preferred the Space Invaders game where he proceeded to dominate it.


Full size
Rhys and Grayson riding mini bikes.


Full size
Henry playing the Metallica pinball game.


Full size
Due to Walter's dominance of Space Invaders, Walter had >600 tickets to spend on treats and toys.


Full size
Henry had less tickets but he was still excited by his haul.


Full size
Henry and Rhys sliding a bit more before we call it for the day.


Full size
After crushing it for the day at Big Box, we decided to have a quieter day the next day and go to
the Science Centre. Here the boys are putting motors together.


Full size
The boys working on their spelling.


Full size
Both boys have always enjoyed the bubble piano.


Full size
We took Mommy to Moxie's for Mother's Day since she had such a great dinner there on her birthday
at West Edmonton Mall. Here Walter is excited for the opportunity to play with his drawing tablet.

without having to go to the US for it.

Walter photo bombing.


Full size
The boys being crazy as they're getting their ice creams with dry ice.


Full size
Walter is in sportball soccer since we thought a 5 year old didn't need 4 soccer sessions a week.
He loves it and is very attentive to the instructor.


Full size
Working on kicking.


Full size
And listening well while sitting inside his hoop.

Full size
Walter legit roped a steer head here.


Full size
Pretty excited boy with his first branding name.


Full size
Walter was jacked to get up on this tractor and use the controls. The horn was ridiculously
loud so of course Walter wanted to hammer on it.


Full size
At the end of the day, the farmer drove the tractor back onto his trailer which Walter loved
but Henry found too loud.


Full size
Henry got his own brand too, but I had to circular saw the last 'P'.


Full size
Family ice cream stop in Cremona since the pizza place from Water Valley has moved here now.

JUST having an ice cream.

Yup, Walter got one too!

A look at the starting lineup for game 5 against the Stars



Full size
Seeing the Canadian flag making its rounds always makes my neck hair tingle.


Full size
Amazingly, I was able to get my buddy Kurt away from his chaos to join me for a game of playoff hockey.


Full size
I took a tour to Canmore to see my life-hero Andy in Canmore and go for a rip on the MTB. Here he
is in his sweet Bike Cochrane jersey up on Montane.


Full size
Wild horses on the highway coming back from Canmore.
