LOMAH - Land of Milk and Honey

Just living life here in the Promised Land, Southern Alberta. Where the Mountains meet the prairie in a stunning sunset, surrounded in fields of gold

Kayking - S Bend

An old picture, surfing the S Bend on the Red Deer River with Denali keeping a watchful eye. It was a perfect day, surrounded by perfect friends.

Family in Waterton

A summer hike with the family and Grandparents. It was a typical Waterton day with some wind and sun. Logan hiked the whole way in to Bertha Falls

Loves of my Life

The first two loves of my life together in one picture. I remember when they came into my life, making me whole.

Me in the Broken Group

I think this is my favourite picture from last year. We did a sea kayaking trip to the Broken Group and had 4 glorious days of sun. It was a capped off with the company of great friends.

Green & White!

Well I know what your going to say... You... a football fan?!? Well the fact is it's not about being a fan, it about a "fan"tastic experience. Grey Cup weekend has been a tradition at the in laws for about as long as I can remember (which for those who know me might be just last year since I tend to forget things). This year was probably the most anticipated since Dora's dad is a Saskatchewan import and as members of LOMAH, I'm sure you'll agree there's always something about where you were raised that stays with you!

Well, we love to support Grandpa, so here we are all dressed up up for game day!

2 for 2!

I can't believe it! I actually made it out to Waterton for two weekends in a row. Athough one could argue that the level of activity is not up to my usual standards, I must say that if your feeling old and weak, then this is actually not so bad!
We grabbed the baby carrier and did Lineham falls. It's a nice 8km hike round trip that has a nice gradual incline for the first half. Nice if your not carrying 20 plus pounds of kid on your back. It's not that I can't lug the load, it's just that I feel like Rocky after a few rounds with Apollo Creed. I can do it, I just don't look so good.

It was a pretty nice hike and Dora and her mom were along for moral support. "You can do it!" they would chant as I slogged my way to the falls. There was some neat slide activity over the winter or spring as evident from the picture.

In spite of my endless whining, I got my second wind just in time to let Logan out the walk the last 10 seconds. I think I'm ready for another hike!
Oh wait I did go for another hike! My good buddy king daddy corn stalk came back to LOMAH for a visit and wanted to go for a hike.
We debated the choices of boundary bay and Rowe lakes. Flat one. Not that it wasn't a difficult hike as it was around 12km which is no walk in the park, more like a walk around the lake. It was a great time and I enjoyed the discussions about; gear, watches, more gear, the merits of old man muscles and our dislike of bears. Which of course was even more interesting when the dog got spooked and my bear spray accidentally leaked. Luckily it was minor and no tears! I will say that it does taste spicy!Nothing like a bit of adventure to finish a hike. I'll leave you with this closing shot and if you look closely you can see the gear! Mammut pants from Switzerland, somewhere rugged I suspect.


Well our first Halloween has come and gone and I must say that at least 2 people in this family can pull off some wicked costumes!
I sadly did not dress up unless you count looking like I'm unemployed as a costume. Dora and Logan looked stellar I must say and should have won a prize, not that either of them should have candy...

We took a trip out to see the folks and they were excited to see the "little monkey" as usual. He did slow down enough for a few pics.
We also zipped out to see Dora's folks and of course the Marj was dressed to the nines! I personally thought she looked like Michael Jackson in smooth criminal but I was wrong.... again.... She is the missing blues brother! Can you tell?
