Oh Canada…

Has it really been almost 3 weeks since Canada Day? Yikes!

We had a great Canada Day 2011 this year. The weather was [finally] beautiful and we made the most of it – especially since it was Alex’s first Canada Day as a Canadian!! We went to a bbq at our friends Sarah & Jeremy’s place and then walked over to the Canada Day parade.

The nice thing for our group of friends is that the majority of us all have kids in the 3 year old range, making it a lot of fun for the little ones, and we get to sit back and catch up (perhaps over a cocktail or two…).  We don’t have a chance to get together as much as we would like, but when we do it is always a great time.

Did I mention it was purple sand? Poor Harrison!

  1. i love the new family photo too! sounds like a fun day….and purple sand?!!! how cool! where might one find purple sand? ….or maybe i should be asking if it’s way messier than the regular stuff before you answer that. 🙂

  2. Looks like a great day! You’re fortunate that your group of friends has kids the same age. Adam is older than all of our friends’ kids by a year or two and it makes get-togethers challenging because he’s just not interested in the same things. (Leah, on the other hand, has a much larger peer group.)
