So while I'm always home, and my husband does have work today, I'm still calling today the start to a long holiday weekend! Not only is it a new month and a holiday (Canada Day), but it's also the first day you can link up with our 2nd Annual Star Spangled Kids! Chances are you have something red, white, and blue for your kids to wear this weekend, so if you haven't already done so, grab your camera and take some photos! In addition to linking up here (you have until July 7th!), make sure to tag all your social media shares with #StarSpangledKids !!!
Last weekend, I got Noah all dressed up, had Chris ready to encourage some smiles with his goofy antics, bribed Noah to smile for a few photos and went outside for a mini patriotic photo session. Noah was more excited to swing the flag than really look at me, but I was trying to make it work. We had some overcast skies which I was loving, but then the clouds shifted and it was getting a little too sunny. Since we had only taken a few photos, I suggested we move to the backyard where there is more open shade. I was hoping to take a few more photos in this shirt and take even more with another flag shirt Noah has. All these plans went out the window when I saw a bear walking through my backyard as I was walking back there with Noah and Chris following behind me. Boy was I scared! I turned around, told Chris to grab Noah and we ran inside. We were all a little shaken up, and our photo shoot was obviously over. While we could have gone out again this week, I have to admit that I was a little nervous to do so on my own, so these will have to do. Hopefully I will get a few more this weekend... maybe a few with Noah's cousins even!
And in honor of Canada Day, here's a photo of Noah in his "Team Canada" shirt from last summer. I'm hoping I can get another photo of him wearing it this year as well (I bought it in two sizes last year for this exact reason!). Recently it's been acting as his Superman cape, but I think I'll try to talk Noah into wearing it the "normal way" today ;)
Don't forget to stop by my lovely co-hosts' blogs to see their little firecrackers too!
