Pink Shirt Day – Support Anti-Bullying

Today my family and I are wearing pink to support such an important cause – to help stop bullying.
Bullying is a huge problem in our school systems, workplaces and even through social media. It needs to stop. It is time to bring awareness and teach our children about how words can hurt and that they can leave a lasting mark.
Does your child’s school participate in Pink Shirt Day? Will you be wearing Pink today to show your support against bullying?

ABC Friday….G is for GUILTY!!!

My kids (AND the hubby!) love to eat chocolates and ice cream!
It is so bad that I can barely get chocolate and ice cream in the door before they are attacking the bags for their goodies! Most of the time I do not mind but lately I have been purchasing some of the Skinny Cow cones and they love those too!! (they are so expensive too!). I came home from the store to catch my boys and Daddy in action and this is what I captured:

You can just see the guilty look on his face. The little monkey man knew he was in trouble but it did not stop him from continuing to eat the cone. He loved every last lick (especially after he knew he was not getting into trouble!). How could I resist such a cute, adorable, chocolate covered face!!

ABC Friday….F is for Fishing!

Check out this week’s ABC Friday Photo Share at Mom vs. the Boys and Maple Leaf Mommy!
F is for Fishing!!
When I first started dating my husband he loved to fish and many of our first dates were at a lake watching him fish! I did not appreciate the time spent fishing back then and would usually work on sketching while he would be in his glory sitting on the dock.
When we had our children , we would take them fishing at the lake almost every other weekend. There is something so calming and peaceful sitting on a dock, under the sun and waiting and hoping for that big catch!! Our kids love to fish now and it has been a great bonding activity for them to do with my Dad.
This particular photograph was special to us as Grandpa joined us this day! He shared his wisdom and expertise and our son caught his very first fish (nicknamed Jesse James!).
