Canada Day!

We had a spectacular Canada Day!

Small town parades are a hoot, especially in Faro. It was made up of all the emergency vehicles in town, a few vehicles and a heap of kids on bikes. Hunter loved the sirens and just stood there with his mouth wide open watching them go by. Next year I think we will deck out the quads and join in.

The rest of the day we spent eating. Or at least it felt like that! There was a free community bbq at lunch time with hotdogs, fruit and cake. Then we came home to nap for three hours. After our nap we got up and headed out for the free supper bbq of bison burgers, salads and ice cream! Canada Day is also the start of the five day 40th Anniversary of Faro celebrations. There are a lot of past Faroites in town to celebrate along with tourists taking in the festivities. The rain did come down for a while, but it didn't dampen any spirits.

All the boys were easy to put to sleep tonight (including Matt!), so I am enjoying a quiet house.
