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.

10,000 Lights

We spent last night looking at lights, from two rather different places.  First we stopped by a house that had a light show synced to music.  I'm not sure what was more interesting, the house or the kids dancing to the music.  My brother had planned the evening and we joined him so it turned into a pretty fun event.

After some dancing and hot chocolate, we headed to the observatory for an open house.  The younger of the kids got bored after a bit, but the older ones were pretty engaged.  Other than some clouds, it was a pretty good night for star gazing.

Sunsets & Sunrises

We have been pretty lucky this fall and have been treated to a few fine sunsets.  Here are a few of my favorites.

Lethbridge Fires

As some of you might have heard in the news, we had a pretty big grass fire in the Lethbridge area in September.  So big in fact that my In-laws had to evacuate from Coalhurst.  I was taking pictures from one side of the fire,

While the grandparents were taking pictures from the other side of the fire.

Luckily Coalhurst was spared any damage and as far as I heard, damage was kept to a minimal.  Crazy thing is this happened last year as well.  Hoping there isn't going to be a third time next year.

Best Americano

I hate to say it, but for 25 bucks, this thing makes a better Americano than my $800 espresso machine.  I origninally got this thing for camping, but I enjoy using it so much that I've kept it in the kitchen.

I honestly have to reccommend this to all my friends who enjoy a good cup of joe while camping.  It's the bomb.

So in rather short notice, I carved 4 pumpkins for the house.  Personally I liked the one that looked like Jack the most.

I know that out there in Internet land, one of you has turned a pumpkin into an apple, your talents and innovation are legen.... wait for it....dary!

This year was special for a different reason.  For the first time Dora and I had matching costumes.

It was pretty fun, I think we should do it again next year.

The boys had similar costumes.  Dora had them try on some different costumes  but after you put them in superhero costumes, how can you expect them to want to be anything else?

Who can't love a holiday when you get to dress up?

Remembrance Day Weekend.

With a few days off we decided to make a good weekend out of our time off.  We headed to Calgary, with what we thought would be a quick stop at IKEA.  We find the restaurant a pretty good deal for feeding the kids.

Well, after 2hr (don't ask) we hit the road and made it to the hotel.  The next day we hit the zoo. We purchased season passes last time we were there, so a quick stop at the zoo is nice, knowing you don't need to make a whole day of it.  It was nice to walk right into the penguin exhibit without any waiting.  Last time we were at the zoo it was a 45min wait.

After a few hours we hit the road for Drumheller.  It's been years since we've been to the Tyrell Museum so we figured it was about time.  I can't believe how excited Evan was.  He loved the big Dinosaurs in the entrance.

It was a pretty good weekend I managed to stop at horsethief canyon, something I've wanted to do and we took a new way home.  I always enjoy driving this beautiful province and seeing something new.


November Blitz

Well, I got skunked in October.  No posts.  I am hoping to make the rest of November the best of the Year.

Here we go.
