Canada Day Long Weekend

CanadaDayCottage

Catching up! Canada Day was a big one this year - 150! Lots of big things were happening in Ottawa but we decided to spend the weekend at the cottage.

School ended on the last Thursday in June and J and I had to work on Friday so J's parents took the kids to the cottage that morning. We worked all day then packed up the car and the cat and hit the road.

Side note: Leaving work without having to rush to get the kids is so freeing. Also nice: driving 2 hours just me and J, with Sandy meowing every now and then from the back.

We spent the weekend alternatively outside doing stuff and inside avoiding the rain. We went into a small town on Canada Day. The celebrations were in a school yard so the kids played on the play structure until it was time for fireworks. It was their first time and I'm so glad I got to see their faces.

We didn't have the best weather, but it was still nice to get away and to kick off the summer.
