Canada Day 2015

Canada Day was a bit of a blur this year. First we got ready: nail polish and hair chalk.

Happy nails.

It was grey and misty but we went to the neighbourhood festivities anyway. It was set up a lot like last year with bouncy castles and slides, face painting, cotton candy, and a stage.

These kids were made for bouncy castles!

And then Little K!

The polar bear maze was a fave from last year.

There was also a zipline, a petting zoo, and pony rides. Little K was lucky to be given some food pellets and she and Little J took turns feeding goats mostly. There was almost a meltdown when we wouldn't pay for pony rides, but we avoided it with the promise of face painting.

Turns out face painting didn't happen either because while waiting in the enormous line it started to pour. That, combined with the fact that I was called to a birth, meant we were on our way home. We were able to see a lot of our friends and did almost everything we wanted to do. J and the kids went on to have a busy day, stopping at a party before heading across town to A&S's house.

I had a good night too, but such a trip down memory lane. I was back in the room where Little J was born almost 6 years ago. I saw some fireworks from the hospital room after this baby was born. It was a nice end to my evening, a happy Canada Day!

Because I love using this space to look back... Canada Day over the years:
