Our community puts on such a great celebration each year for Canada Day. Pancake breakfast, an incredible parade with floats, over an hour long, with music and candy, pony rides, canoe rides, bouncy castles, food everywhere, opportunities to play, opportunities to sing and dance, opportunities to wave our flag with pride. We arrived at the park just after 9 a.m. and stayed until 3 this afternoon. We'll head out to see the fireworks once it gets dark tonight. A long day filled with activity, friends, family and fun!
I'm tired, sunburned, hot but full of love for my free country, my beautiful family and all the blessings we cherish on a daily basis. Nothing is taken for granted, even on those days when life is hard. But days like today are a reminder of how fortunate we are to live in this vast, beautiful nation!
Happy Birthday Canada!!
Hope your day was filled with love!
