After all, it is Alberta

So us Albertans still don't get that summer does not exist until AFTER May long weekend. Regardless of how nice April, March and even February can be, winter can still happen at a moment's notice. And happen it did.

Driving to work this morning. Slippery roads, snow everywhere. Yup, May is good.

Look at the bright side! The farmers need the moisture, and whether it comes in soothing rain or white frozen precipitation, moisture is moisture. And man, does humidity ever make -3 Celsius seem cold! Or maybe the +20 we had a few days ago makes it seem like that.

Oooooh, artistic... Keep your hands on the wheel mister!

Oooooh, even more artistic. I call this one, Objects in Mirror aren't even there....

The back road to work was even icier. I guess I should have been driving and not taking photos.

And compared to 2 days ago, my car is upset with me for parking it in the snow out in the cold. Poor thing...

Hey Baby Baby!

So we are having a baby, right? And my parents are going to be grandparents right? Well they've been helping us set up baby room and waiting for little arrival to, well, arrive. So the other day my parents sent out this crib to us! Handmade by Oongabba himself! So after unboxing it, we have set it up and just need to fill it with something other than Rudy and Ellie-

That's moi! Crazy hippy hair and awesome blanket and pillow case made by mom. Thanks mom!

There it is! All nicely set up and de-squeaked! The teddy bear on the left is a build-a-bear (owl) and the other is from my wife's parents! The frog actually hugs back when you hug it. How nice :-)

Rudy, occupying the baby's bed. Bad Rudy!!! He even looks guilty.

Nevermind, he's a good boy. Ears up Rudy!

Hey there Rudy, what exactly are you doing?

Yes Rudy, she's allowed in there too. Don't look so perturbed.

Our Build-A-Bear (owl). Years ago, my wife and I and came to visit Calgary. We stayed in a hotel and went to Chinook Mall, where the Build-A-Bear had just opened. We said to eachother, someday when we are pregnant, we're gonna build one of those for our baby before it's born and then give it to him/her when its old enough to have it. Well, that time has come and we now have a Build-A-Bear (owl) anxiously awaiting it's new master. Come quickly little baby, come quick, Honky-Tonk-McHootle Boots is a waitin' with his geetar (so is dad).
