Straw Hat(less?) Day

We have been seeing lots of our friends sporting straw hats today.   Well, we do not have any pictures of us WEARING hats, but we do have pictures of us checking out the straw sombrero.    


Simba is really giving it the sniff test (due to the treats Dad put there!).  


We posted this one already on Cinco de Mayo, but it is the only one they have of us both with the hat.



Mom googled Straw Hat Day, and came up with the following information.  Most of our friends probably know this, but we didn't!


Straw Hat Day marks the point when your day-to-day felt hats should be put away (until the Felt Hat Day on September 15th), and when you start start to wear a straw hat instead to keep cool (in both senses of the word!); modern research has tended to show, however, that straw hats aren’t nescessarily any cooler or better protection from the sun than other hat types.

Ann of Zoolatry did a super badge for today.  Thank you Ann!
