Spring 2016 Cowtown

Stunt Dummy they call him.  Got the idea from library book.  Looks rather life like don't you think?

Overlooking the still frozen Glenmore Resevoir in March


Cheap tix from the CBE for the Calgary Roughnecks lacrosse game at the Saddledome.

Last days of the season at Nakiska





Warm and slushy.....



New skateboard/BMX/scooter park a couple of blocks away from home.




The little man seems to love soccer more than any other activity.....next to reading that is.





Such concentration




25 years after 'Scrambles in the Canadian Rockies' was published, Al Kane just came out with a 3rd and final? edition.  Went to catch up with Al at the book 'unveiling' at Indigo books.  Amazing the number of people who wanted to meet him, to let him know what a positive impact the book has had on their lives.  Myself included!

So apparently I'm now a 'veteran'  My kids use more blunt term to describe me.




Hanging under the stately cottonwood trees at Pearce Estates by the Bow

Not sure how much longer they'll eat those veggie dogs.....



Dad's little goose :)

Ramon and Carla's first communion

Ramon and Carla's first communion.  NOTE:  As the writer of this blog I feel I need to add a disclaimer.  I have no faith/belief in the whole Christian/Catholic thing, yet I feel the need to be respectful of Maria's beliefs.  Gotta have balance in a marriage.  The kids will get to hear my own agnositic/animist (if I have to put a label on myself) thoughts soon enuf....






Ramon sure isn't as shy as his dad....



Insert Studley joke here: "the priest explaining that the upcoming paintball activity is going to make quite a mess of the children's white outfits"
