Post-Calgary Stampede 2010 Reflection – Calgary Children’s Photographer

Well, the 2010 edition of The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth is now in the books.  It’s funny how one’s participation in the Stampede can change depending on your stage in life.  When I was working downtown and without the responsibility that comes with having very young children, the Stampede was a bit…wilder.  Let’s leave it at that!

But with two young boys, our Stampede experience has become a tamer beast.  We took the kids to the Stampede grounds on Kid’s Day, and Aidan (our oldest) had a blast, primarily because he’s a bit taller and therefore can ride on more rides alone than compared to the prior year.  He absolutely loved the Agri exhibits and seeing all of the farm animals (I don’t know how he gets past the smell!).  Meaghan and I had a good laugh when Aidan saw the Clydesdales and remarked out loud, “Mama, those horses have big bums!”.  Yes indeed.

A photoblog post is not complete without photos.  Here are several just before we headed out to one of the local community pancake breakfasts.  The first two pictures depict two very different stares from our sons.  The third picture explains why.  Don’t worry Nicky.  One day you’ll get your turn on Mommy’s iPhone.  Until next year…
