Now that's a party

Sure there was a bouncy castle, games of chance, a juggler, a steel drum band, face painting and hot dogs at our local park's Canada Day celebrations earlier today.

But, you know, it's just not a party until a demented clown hands your kid a phallic-looking balloon dog.

And he falls in love with it.

Happy Canada Day everyone!

I swear that your son gets cuter every time I see a new picture. How is that possible?

If this is foreshadowing, take heart. Now he can get married to anyone he wants in California.

He's darling.

AWWW!!! :) We were in Toronto, two years ago, on Canada Day. It was AMAZING! We had so much fun running around downtown, getting into museums for free, and just having a blast!! :)

Such a cute photo!

Krystyn said...

Okay, that might be a little bit disturbing!

Happy Canada day!

Cheffie-Mom said...

Happy Canada Day to you and your family.

I will, however, say that I am not so sure I ever used that analogy to signify the completion or climax of a party.

I hope you all enjoyed the celebration. He is a cutie!

OMG that is adorable, balloon and all. I love his hair, it's so cute. We made it thru half of our Canada Day celebration, then my son came down with a fever and we head to pack up and head home. We still had a blast!!! Ottawa really rocks on July 1st!

Just Janice said...

Yikes! That certainly is phallic looking! Sounds like you guys had a blast. We opted to save on gas and partied it up in the backyard.

KathyLikesPink said...

Wow. Why do those balloons animals always come out looking like that???

Very cute pic, though. Those eye will really melt some hearts someday! (of women he's not related to, I mean...)

The Boyds Family said...

Happy Canada Day to you and your family. He is SUCH a cutie and I'm glad to see his eye is better :)

Take care.

Awesome Mom said...

Cute! Harry got one of those at a neighborhood party when we were at my parent's house. Sobbing ensued when it got popped while he was playing at the park. I hope yours has a better ending.

Happy Canada Day--I'm sending my 15 year old up your way (well, B.C) on Thursday.

JCK said...

Happy Canada Day to you!!

Laura said...

Hope you had a great Canada Day!

Kathryn said...

That is the funniest balloon ever! And he does have to be biting on it, doesn't he? Hilarious!
A clown huh? Just the mention of clowns is liable to give me nightmares. I'm already bracing myself for the clowns in the 4th of July parade. Yikes!

Marmarbug said...

BAD clown!!!! Is Canda Day like our 4th? I need to google it.
