Playing with Helayna

Family Day weekend was the perfect time to head to Calgary for a visit with our son and daughter. We met up with Darrin and Kelsey, Heather, Jonathan and Helayna and had supper at the Thai Chili Club House last night. The food was delicious, even if the Basil Beef and Mushrooms made our eyes water! I got to see Darrin's house for the first time (he's only been there about 10 months!) and we stayed over at Kelsey's parents' condo (it's the best 'hotel' in town - thanks H & R!). Today we hung out with Helayna for awhile before heading home. Our visits to Calgary are always too short, it seems to me. Hopefully we'll be back soon.

Heather and Helayna cuddling

Grampa and Helayna had lots of fun playing together today. She is so responsive and we had a great time talking and hanging out. Jonathan captured these awesome pictures!

We were dazzled by this sweet smile so many times! I just can't get enough of it!

More smiles as Grampa flew her by!

While Mommy went for a run and Daddy and Grampa were moving some stuff, Helayna and I went for a walk. It was so bright outside today - we definitely need to get some baby sunglasses.

We had lots of fun while Mommy had a nap!

These two did lots of 'talking' today! Gotta love those wide open mouths!


  1. Wow! I can't believe how much Helayna looks like you! What a cutie...
    Thanks for the nice comments you left on my blog. The Deck of Me challenge has been a lot of fun so far;)

  2. Awe, Mom! She's changing and growing so much. Her smile melts me every time. I'm so glad you had time to spend in Calgary with both your kids. I can see you love being a grandma! Hopefully you'll have many more to play with and babysit, while Moms get some rest.

  3. Beautiful pictures .... what a sweet little girl! Aww!!

  4. oh gosh what cute photos!! I love that you get to go visit your grandbabies so often! I grew up 10 hours away from mine, and I know how special my time was with them!

  5. What a perfect way to spend Family day, I so miss this holiday now that I live in BC. I loved hanging out with my family on this holiday.

  6. Helayna is looking more like her daddy every day! What a cutie - she is getting soooooo big!!! You are such a proud gramma!

  7. Great pictures Crystal! You have such a beautiful family.
