Happy Canada Day!

We're usually travelling on Canada Day. 

Last year we were en route to a campgound, slowly meandering through some small towns in the hopes of finding a parade or BBQ going on.  We only found some private family functions.  It was quite disappointing.  Where is our Canada spirit? 

Once we were settled in our tents and trying to fall asleep, the fireworks started nearby.  Not near enough to see (too many trees), but near enough to be kept awake by the noise.  Yvon and I were surprised to hear from the girls that they had never seen fireworks.

Seriously?  Beth is 12 years old.  How had we managed to miss fireworks at every event for so long?  I guess when bedtime is around 8:00 and the sun sets so late around here, we've never kept them up long enough to see the show. 

Tonight we're hoping to change all that.  Hopefully we'll catch some fireworks tonight! 

Happy Canada Day, everyone!
