BC: Tanner's last day of Kindergarten June 24th 2010
2: What Fun!!! The bitterly cold winter weather has finally broken! We were able to get outside after a long cold spell. Tanner pulled Audrey almost all the way around Cranna Lake and then we stopped at the sledding hill. Even after all that work Tanner had plenty of energy to go up and down the hill plenty of times!
5: Tanner gets up so early in the morning! It's so dark out when he rises it's a little spooky so on more than one occasion I found him huddled beside Sam's bed playing his new DS. Sam is such a good protector! | Now that Audrey is almost walking, you two are starting to play together more often. Audrey thinks it's great when Tanner runs away, throws pillows, laughs...anything!!
6: ALL BUNDLED UP | A very special event for Audrey's birthday! We were so lucky to have the Olympic Torch run come through Lacombe on the way to Vancouver! We all bundled up and went down to mainstreet to watch. A very proud Canadian moment!
7: Olympic Torch Run comes to Lacombe! January 15th 2010
8: Now you are ONE!!
9: Make a Wish! | It's Audrey's 1st birthday! You loved your banana cake with chocolate icing and were so excited about your new baby stroller!
11: What better way to spend a cold winter day?!! I decided to vacuum under the couches and the cushions...who knew how much fun this could be?! | Tanner calls this a "free run out" ... not quite sure why but hey, it works!
13: Nothing makes me smile the way you two do!
14: "A Baby's Love Is Best Of All" | The year has gone by so quickly with so many "firsts" and big changes. We cannot imagine our lives without Audrey! Such a happy girl! | Growing up so fast!
15: Learning to Walk! Audrey keeps using her nose as a landing pad! Poor nose!
16: I cannot resist Tanner snuggled up in his puppy blanket. He is turning into such a little man and I try to catch these moments before they are gone.! | HANDSOME
17: Motor Bike show \Skating with school | Olympic Day
18: "A truly rich man is one who's children run into his arms when his hands are empty."
20: When Irish eyes are smiling, 'Tis like a morn in spring. With a lilt of Irish laughter You can hear the angels sing. | 2010
21: So Happy to finally be able to play outside! | Oh No She Didn't! | Oh Yes She Did! | How audrey spends her time while Tanner is at school....
22: What Happened?! On the 18th of March Tanner fell backwards off the living room bench right onto his elbow. He was so scared to go for x-rays so we didn't go to the hospital. After a whole day of being in so much pain Daddy took him and sure enough the tip of his elbow was broken. It was too swollen to cast so they put on a splint. When he went back in two weeks for the cast it was healing so well they were able to just leave it in a splint. Of course, that was after we talked up how fun it would be to get a cast and have his friends sign it!! We had all his friends sign his splint instead. It healed so nicely and was off completely after only four weeks.
23: Beaver's sleepover at the Tyrrell Museum | Whoever heard of sleeping under the dinosaurs?!
24: The Calgary Zoo -March 28, 2010
25: Audrey's first trip to the Zoo!
26: Bunnies are brown. Bunnies are white. Bunnies are always An Easter delight. Bunnies are cuddly The large and the small. But I like chocolate one The best of them all.
27: Easter April 4th, 2010 Audrey ate her first chocolate bunny and Tanner found all the eggs! So spoiled by the Bunny this year! You both had so much fun going through your baskets and looking for eggs. After you put on your Easter clothes we went outside to blow bubbles! FUN!
29: Tanner's first dance The end of April brought the J.S. McCormick Spring dance. We got all dressed up and ready to dance the night away. Audrey and Austin had a blast but the music was too loud for Tanner. We still had a good time.!
30: spring May 2010 | Audrey loves to dress up in shoes and hats! And absolutely loves to be outside! | bloom
33: I cannot get enough of you guys all snuggling and cuddling! I am so lucky to have such an affectionate family! Here Audrey has discovered Daddy's nose and Tanner's DS!

37: welcome to the Truck Room! You were both surprised and so excited when we walked into our hotel room! A real truck to sleep in! And a firetruck bunk bed with working lights! Even the streetlights changed! You had so much fun playing in the cab of the truck and climbing up into the truck "bed". We thought we might not even need to leave the room to check out the mall!!
38: We were so excited to meet up with the Blackburns! We always have a blast with them! | Galaxyland!
41: Doin' the MALL! So much to see and do! We spent lots of time just wandering around and checking out the stores...Build a Bear being a definite fave! Tanner and Daddy enjoyed WEM's mini-golf while mommy and Audrey did some shopping!
42: Bumper Boats!! Tanner and Mommy LOVED the bumper boats! It took us a few minutes to figure out the steering... | By the time we got that sorted out it was too late! Some kid was on the attack and would not be deterred! We got soaked!
43: Who needs a pool when you have an ENORMOUS hot tub right in your room?!
44: Lacombe Fly in Breakfast June 6th, 2010 We had the perfect day for the airport breakfast! We rode our bikes all the way to the airport and enjoyed the hearty meal.
