I want to re-live Canada Day weekend all over again.
It really was such an awesome couple of days. I was surrounded by family and friends, and the good times were numerous. It actually makes me quite sad that it's over already.
I uploaded and edited pics last night, and it made me long to hit rewind and re-play it all again. I'll let those photos tell the story!

Funny story here - I was sitting with Gracie on the blanket waiting for the parade. Cars kept going by and honking. I kept saying, "Wow, everyone's in such a good mood today! I don't even know who these people honking are!!" When Dawn took these pics of us, I realized people could see right up my skirt. (this one is cropped to save you all from the spectacle.) I'm still hoping they were honking for the flags and the lively people, not my hoo-ha. ;) Let's just say, I adjusted my position on the blanket quickly!! hahaha!!
Waiting for the parade to start
It was REALLY hot on Thursday... most ended up moving to the shade as we waited for the parade!

There were a bunch of cuties waiting on the parade across the road too!
Fletcher, Annie, Leah, Abby & Shawn :)

We tried assembling the kids on my back steps for a photo op... trying to get 6 little people to look and smile without waving flags in each other's faces is preeeeetty much impossible!! lol!
I'm lucky to be from this beautiful branch of the Family Tree!!
Me, Mom, Kara, Aunt Nora, Aunt Linda, Aunt Marion, Dawn & Paula
The army of kids on decorated bikes in the parade was quite impressive! There were SO many of them!! Great job guys!
