My Sunday Photo - Little Soldier

It's Sunday, not only that but it's June! What has happened to the first half of this year? I really have no idea where the last 6 months have vanished to. Anyway let's get back to Sunday, it's time of my Sunday photo and this weeks photo was taken on Monday while we attended our local maritime festival.

I'm not sure what we where expecting but we certainly weren't expecting to see all kinds of emergency responders and soldiers there with a full array of protection, armer, guns (without ammunition) and their vehicles to explore and discover. D was fascinated by everything that was happening and that they where doing there.

One of the things D enjoyed was dressing up in the soldiers armer/ protective gear. That was one of the reasons I have chosen this photo as my Sunday photo.


There's just so much I love about this photo. How proud D looks all dressed up like a real soldier, The expression on his face and the fact that he has his hands all scrunched up so he can show his "big muscles" off in his soldier outfit that looks about a hundred sizes to big for him. Most of all I love that this picture reminds me of just how small he still is. He's growing up so fast and time is really rushing past us. He insists on being a "big boy" so much I lose sight of the fact he is three years old and still just my little boy, well for another while at least!

As always we are linking up with Darren over on Phot A Life for #MySundayPhoto. You can visit Darren's blog by click on his badge below. Pop over and take a look at all the other My Sunday Photo's out there.
