Bagpiper moose!

September 2nd, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Its Labour Day long weekend, here in Canada, this weekend and there is snow on the mountain tops.

According to Wikipedia, Labour Day or Labor Day is an annual holiday to celebrate the economic and social achievements of workers.

As it also coincides with the children going back to school I think its really an excuse for parents to celebrate!.

We will be going to the Highland games in Canmore, which is always a good day.

I thought it might be fun to show you our latest Active Moose – the Bagpiper Moose from Jack Willoughby. (Part of our Moosicians series ;-) )
