And Maple Syrup For All

Hey, guys, could you please look at the camera?


Wait, lets try it in front of the yellow flowers. And hold the flags where I can see them.


STOP IT! The flag is not a weapon!


Forget it. Happy Birthday, Canada.

  1. You'd think with all the money you're paying those models, they'd at least cooperate. Or maybe they stand on guard for thee?

  3. Your house looks like mine! I'm a full time ref, only without the striped shirt and def without the pay.

  5. Those are nice flags. And nice boys. I think it's just an explosive mixture.
    (And just what are the child labor laws like in the True North? Or are they simply not enforced?)

  6. Those boys are too much! I bet you have oodles of great outtakes from all the pictures you've posted. Its like our house at Christmas -- everybody fights and cries so they're all pink-eyed and stressed in the pics.

    Happy Birthday Canada!

  9. A friend of mine has a Spanish-speaking friend he used to work with at a restaurant. He (Paco, the spanish-speaking friend) was referring to USA's upcoming birthday, and said, "This weekend is the anniversary, yes?" Which is now what I'm going to call the Fourth of July. Exclusively.

  14. Haven't you learned? With two boys everything can be turned into a weapon.
    Z was shooting me with his kleen-ex the other day!
    Speaking of Z he's on my lap and it took me forever to figure out what he was saying..."a kitten a stormager!"
    Until I realized he was saying "a kid and a storm trooper!"
    You can now add him to your fan base.

  20. After you put the camera away did they smile and look just perfect? That always happens at our house...

  21. Does this mean the next generation of Canadians will be violent and have imperialist designs? I, for one, welcome our future overlords. Bring bunny when you invade.

  22. I'm simply assuming that you were wearing a giant soft Canada hat. You were weren't you?

  23. Happy Canada day, eh. Hosers.

  24. You should have given them signs to hold.. it probably would have been more successful. ;)

  26. boys can make anything into a weapon.

    happy birthday, canada. i would break into a rendition of "oh, canada" but that wouldn't be much of a gift.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ha ha ha - cute. I really like the third one!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Did You yell "you'll poke your eye out!" at least once?

    Happy Day Canadians!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm going to try and get my 17 year old son to hold signs and stuff...

    oh, well, it will never turn out cute like yours, he is past the cute stage.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Your kids are crazy. Of COURSE the flag is not a weapon. It's Canadian, for God's sake.

  34. We're Canadian, we don't *really* fight with pointy sticks do we?

    Also, nice flowers. And cute kids. Oh! And happy Canada Day (slightly belated).

    ReplyDelete
  35. Apparently they have gotten some of your genes for hilariousness...great pictures...and great looks on their faces and they brandish their "weapons".

    ReplyDelete
  36. I wonder where you boys get their feistyness from? Captain or Supreme leader :)
    I know the answer in my family :)

  37. Fuck, I missed Canada's birthday. Is it too late to send an inappropriate ecard?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oooohhhh Canadaaaaa....I remember my French teacher in HS making us memorize the whole anthem (he was French Canadian--'cause you know that has to be stipulated clearly) and then graded each one of us as we stood in front of the class to 'sing' it....that was a nightmare...now, on a happy note, we used to get to go to the Canadian Embassy in Paris' party every summer (good Canuk friend w/connections)...free beer, food, lot's of fun...couple of days later, the lame-os over at the U.S. embassy had VIP-only loser 4th celebration...haaaaaaaa. Happy Canada Day! One word re: the kids: "hi-ya" (said while waving flag in karate-chop fashion ;p)
