I realized that I have never photographed an entire day of our life as a family. It’s on my list of things to do. I did shoot many moments from our Canada Day celebrations this year. It was a very busy, fun filled day, and I hope that these memories are ones that our children remember.
This year the boys made their own Canada Day t-shirts. I pretty sure I saw this idea on pinterest… if not someone can feel free to pin it. They traced their hands as maple leaves and then added the rectangles for the sides of the Canadian flag. They both signed their names and for good measure Liam added a cow, sheep and horse to his. This is the shot I got just before Liam pulled down his pants and mooned me. Sigh. Boys!
We then headed into town in the afternoon to join in the Canada Day celebrations. We met up with my sisters and brother-in-laws, and my adorable one year old nephew. (We snuck in that monthly family photo!)
Things got goofy.
These are moose antlers (not bunny ears) – we are Canadian after all!
Charlotte Diamond was giving a concert, but my kids and husband showed very little interest in those classic kids songs (I am a Pizza, 4 Hugs a Day, Slippery Fish… come on – those are classic sing along songs!) So we wandered. Liam really wanted a balloon – he got an orange dog. Caleb got a blue squirrel.
After that we stopped for some ice cream from Beacon Drive-in then headed home to BBQ up some dinner.
This was followed by a little backyard marshmallow roast and running off some sugar sillies.
It was a pretty fun day! Happy birthday Canada!
