Photo with Lion...check!

I can't believe our luck, talk about being in the right place at the right time, lol! We spent the weekend at Penn State for their annual Blue and White game. The weather was wonderful and there was lots to do for little ones. Colin started to get a little hot so he went to the carnival outside the stadium for a bit with his grandmother and Dad. As I'm watching the game I see that the lion is making his way over to where we are sitting. I start wishing that it wasn't so hot and that Colin was still watching the game. Sure enough, Colin walks in with his snow cone and a renewed spirit. (No crabby pants from being too hot). So we run to the edge of our section and Colin starts yelling, "Hey Lion, Hey Lion!" We ask for a photo and hand our kid over the fence so this complete stranger can hold my son and I can get the photo of a lifetime. I cannot believe Colin is looking and smiling! It seriously makes me insanely giddy that I got this photo! Colin was very happy to meet the Lion but also made it very clear that it wasn't really the Lion because there was a kid inside. He said, "I saw him, I saw his shoes too!"

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzil. Pattern Paper: Studio Calico, October Afternoon. Rub Ons: Hambly. Letters: American Crafts, Making Memories. Buttons: Creative Cafe. Brads. American Crafts. Stamp: Scarlet Lime.
I took this photo when I was learning how to use my new camera. When I saw those little feet I knew I wanted to do this LO. This is the weirdest habit that Colin has. (Well one of them at least). When he has a tough time falling asleep he will ask me this. He doesn't actually mean it, he wants to put his feet on my back. Still weird, but not as bad. Not that I think I will ever forget that he does this, but I wanted to make the LO just in case I need additional stories for embarrassment when he is in high school.
