Today was Canada Day, aka Canada's birthday, which means tomorrow is a stat holiday for the average Canadian (unless *ahem* you're an author working on manuscript revisions).
I love that my kids get to celebrate in a small town atmosphere where the local firetruck leads the parade and a gaggle of kids who've spent hours decorating their bikes follow. I love that the floats are home grown too, with kids riding in the back playing drums.
I rode my bike down to the main party area to check on my kids a few times. Otherwise, though, they came and went all day,
waving flags and dragging their friends through the house. For some reason, though, the noise didn't get on my nerves today
the way it sometimes does.
Happy birthday Canada!
