Go Fly a Kite

 People from Saskatchewan tend to have a pretty positive outlook on life.  If you give us lemons we will make lemonade.  If you are from Swift Current and you give us wind we will go fly a kite and even have an entire weekend event to embrace and celebrate just how windy our fair city is! 

This year is the 8th annual Windscape Kite Festival and it will be held on Sat and Sunday June 23rd and 24th.  They always have great music, entertainment, kids activities and plenty of unique kites and all levels of experienced kite flyers.  They are always in need of volunteers.  If you want to know more about the event check out their website.

Here are some shots of the kids with their kites that they received in a Birthday Goodie bag.  The bag included a kite, sidewalk chalk and bubbles.  Great entertainment for some outside fun! 
The kids actually took turns and helped each other out.   Then five minutes they were fighting and the kites got tangled in a tree but for a moment it was pretty sweet!

 Here is a great photo challenge for you.  Take some images of your kids at play.  Not only looking at the camera but doing something they can interact with.  You will capture more genuine expressions when they are playing.

National Memorial Day for Lost Socks

On May 9th people every where take a moment to stop and reflect on the many socks that mysteriously go missing.  They escape at the laundromat, behind the dryer, outside the aquatic center or left behind at the bowling alley.  So today we remember all those socks who have lost their match and take this holiday to look forward and not back to a time without lost socks, a time when sock sorting is a thing of the past!  Here is the latest news from Snappy Socks.  The two socks that snap together when you wash and dry them so you never have to lose another sock again.

We have signed with a great shoe company called Dawgs Shoes to distribute our socks across the United States.  The owners are a great group and have worked with us developing the new sizes and 120 styles!  I am thrilled to see the amazing new designs and that Snappy Socks will soon be sold across the United States with our Patent Pending design. Find out more information at

This is a "Sneak Peek" of the styles coming very soon!

Here are some of the Ladies "Animal Prints"

 The Ladies "Plain" and "Dots"
 Some of the kids "Dots" and "Dawgs Paws"
If you would like to win some Snappy Socks please comment on this post for a chance to enter and then head over to my Facebook page for a chance to enter another set of 9 pairs socks.  I will be giving away 2 sets of socks that will have 8 of our original styles of socks and 1 new style that aren't available for sale yet so altogether 9 pairs to celebrate May 9th!!  The winners will be chosen on Monday.   Good Luck and Yay for no more Lost Socks!
