A Look at Our Canada Day

July 1st

Yup, nearly a month behind STILL but here we are at our personal celebration of Canada Day. Of course our day started in our red and white glory with any and all decorations I have saved or in the case of paper chains – the kids have made out for display. Thanks again to Karyn who got us some of these patriotic pieces on her trip down here last year.101_8106 101_8105 101_8111 101_8112 101_8108 101_8110

This year we had a super special addition – a full on Canadian flag thanks to Facebook friend and twin mom Cyndi! The kids were so pleased to have what they consider THEIR flag out in the front yard for the day!101_8114 101_8115

What with it NOT being a holiday here we had to make our own special adventure. And we certainly tried our best. We took all the kids out to the mall with the beloved Carousal. And the kids ALL went up to the upper level to enjoy the ride.101_8117 101_8129 101_8125 101_8122 101_8121 101_8128

As a special treat Echo and Trinity got to ride on one of the coin cars… they seemed much more amazing when I was little.101_8138 101_8139

We took some lovely pictures in front of the mall too.101_8140

Our next stop was a nature center where we had our lunch in the van.101_8143 101_8142

Then into the center for a potty break only to go out to walk and Geocache EXACTLY when it started raining! Plan change – time for dancing in the rain instead!101_8144 101_8146 101_8145 101_8149 101_8147
