Pictures of my boys...

For the last few days the weather has been hot and sunny in Calgary so we have tried to take advantage of a few of the lovely parks we have.

Here are a few of my favorites at Nose Hill park last night....

Tom Baker Park tonight....

We are very fortunate to live in a city that has so many beautiful parks that we can enjoy during the summer time.

A day out with Thomas the Train

On Saturday, May 12th we got to spend the day at Heritage Park and enjoy a day out with Thomas the Train.

We got the tickets back in February and not to many days went by that he didn't ask if it was the day we were going to meet Thomas.

We got to the park early enough to walk down and see Thomas before he went out on the ride before hours. He was so excited and couldn't believe that Thomas was there in real life.

The weather was amazing and the crowd was actually very manageable because of the size of the park.

We had our train ride then went to explore the other activities...We shopped a little, ate a little then got to see Sir Topham Hat.

All in all it was a wonderful day and I'm just so glad that Hayden was able to meet Thomas the of his most favorite things in the world.

Enjoying Spring...

I'm not sure where the time goes but it's already May 7th...Soccer and gymnastics are in full swing. Both activities seem to be a hit.

Although, we are thinking that Hayden is actually going to have a little more fun with golf. A friend of ours runs the Callaway Golf Performance Center here in Calgary and invited Faruq & Hayden out to practice on the simulator machine this past Saturday. I guess Hayden was having so much fun he wouldn't let Faruq have a try. He hit balls for over an hour and didn't want to leave when they were done and has continued to ask to go back.

I was meeting a friend for some lunch and retail therapy yesterday so the boys went to the mini-putt center close to our house. I love that Hayden is so in love with's a sport that Faruq and I have enjoyed for many years !

I'm still busy with my Photography course...3 classes left to I complete the my 3rd course. I have one final course this session "Photoshop for Photographers" which wraps up on July 4th. While the courses have been great I'm looking forward to a little break this summer. I plan to take at least one more course this coming fall...then we shall see.

Here are a few of the shots I'm submitting as part of a "food" assignment. My choice of food was a huge hit with Hayden...he was just mad I wouldn't let him eat any until I was done photographing them.

Landscapers are back hard at work. They figure that with good weather they will be done in a few weeks. I'm so tired of having the ugliest yard on the will be nice to have grass and plants again !!

We are looking forward to this weekend as Thomas the Train makes a return visit to Calgary and we managed to snag tickets for a ride. I'm sure it will be a big hit and I will post some pictures after the ride.

Chow !!!
