I'm not sure if you know that Brian and I play Dodgeball once a week on a recreational team. It seems silly I know but the reason I like it is that you never bump into anyone or know anyone who was a Dodgeball star in High School. Whereas there are plenty of people out there that played and excelled at Football, Basketball, Volleyball etc. And I find that they have something to prove when they are out there on the court, I know I would too if I were playing basketball. BUT no one played Dodgeball competitively so I find the large majority is there to have fun playing a silly sport and get some exercise.

Koba entertainment generously allowed Grady and I to attend the live action show of Richard Scarry's Busytown. I had tried to get tickets since Huckle has become one of Grady's favorite characters but when I looked for tickets all that was left was far away from the stage and I learned from going to the Wiggles that it is more worth it to be where they can see it! So when I had the opportunity to get some tickets I jumped at it!

Pretty cool right? Have you been before? We never have but I have heard it is a pretty good event!

As you know the Thornton family has recently grown. Grams (Shelley's mom) was in town for a couple weeks after Henry was born to help out and of course cuddle her first grandson! Last week Grams headed back to Ontario and Auntie Shelley, Isabel and Henry were looking to hangout with us for a bit rather than head straight back to Red Deer.We decided on the zoo although the weather decided to not be so nice out. We bundled up in blanket etc since we had already packed away the winter gear (a little early I guess!)
|The one good thing about cold weather? No line up for the penguins! We walked right in.|

Henry John Thornton is 4 weeks old now and I think I haven't yet really shared pics of him and his big cousin Grady :D It was hard to get a pic with Big Sis Isabel as she is still getting used to the idea of having someone else around!
If you want to see pre-Henry pics you'll have to check out Ultraviolet Photo's Blog. And there are also even better baby pics there too AND Bryan and Shelley have shared some over on their blog also...
We went up to meet Henry while Grady was down in Idaho. Here he is with Uncle Brian.
I think he likes his new blanket?
|Me and my surfer dude nephew|
|see? impossible to get a good one with Isabel!|
Here are some more from when Grady finally got to meet Henry at Easter:
|Another blanket for my nephew, this one is a 1lb weighted blanket from Hippo Hug|
|Double the John Deere Blanket fun makes Henry sleepy!|
|Grady has been talking about making a funny face for Henry for months!|
|Hmmm maybe two kids looks good on me?|

When we booked our trip to Montana this year we also booked a bonus week at Pend Oreille Resort in Hope Idaho. We thought it was a great deal and chances were we would be able to make the extra trip at the end of March no problem. It also happened to work out that it was spring break. Something we didn't know when we booked because we just took whatever week at any resort within driving distance that we could get and Pend Oreille Resort was the only one with any availability.

I realized that the other week I promised to post the photos from our visit to Telus Spark in Calgary aka the new Science Centre but then I never did! Oops!
In any case better late then never ;) We went to the Spark while Auntie Amanda was here doing some baby pics for our friends. She has an annual pass to the Edmonton Telus World of Science and we had some discounted tickets (I don't know that I would pay full price to go).

We are featured over on Family Fun Calgary today (actually that is a lie they put it up a while ago I just haven't been in the basement to link up and post more photos until today :D) So check out our second visit (we finally got in even though the line ups are still about an hour!) to Calgary Zoo's Penguin Plunge. I am going to be brief here and mostly just share pictures and a bit about our trip on the weekend to the Calgary Zoo's Eggstravaganza went :D I guess I am in time to link up with Wordless Wednesday Here and Here so since I am being brief I will do that too :D
