Today (well, yesterday by the clock, but I'm still up, so it feels like I should be able to say "today") was Canada Day.
Happy 141st Birthday to the greatest country in the world. I know that there are other people in other countries that think theirs is the best country, but I might have to disagree. Never have we wanted for anything, we have everything from rain forests to mountains to farmland to deserts... and that's all just in BC :) The rest of the country is fascinating too... and one day I am going to see it all. For this summer we are just going to explore a little more of our Province (which turns 150 this year).
On Monday, Scott found out that the next day was Canada Day. Here's a bit of the conversation...
Scott: So mom, tomorrow is Canada Day?
S: So that means it's Canada's birthday?
Me: Yes, that's right!
S: So, where's the party?
Me: Oh, you want to go to the party?
S: Oh yes! And there should be cake!
So.... we went to the party (2, in fact!) and we had CAKE! We missed the cake in town, so I bought one at Safeway and wrote on it myself. I think he was happy with the party, and I am sure the neighbours all heard us singing "Happy Birthday" to Canada as we had our dinner on the back deck (which was BBQ hickory smoked chicken, compliments of my husband chef Steve :)
I took 232 pictures today. That is a close second to one day last year when I took 233. Thanks to Picasa, I can see these random facts at a glance!
Here are a few of my faves from the day... Parade, Pool and Party :)
