Canada Day

We had a great day of celebrating in our neighborhood! We started by decorating bikes and then a big parade with all the kids riding around with the fire engine bringing up the rear. Bouncy castles, balloons, face painting, dancing, food, and a new skate park were all part of the celebrations.
The kids were most excited about the balloon man. They kept going back when their animals would pop in the grass.
My favorite part was the native dancing. The invited everyone to join in at the end for a group dance. It was so fun (with ShiShi and The Babe).

Later that night we all headed back to the park for fireworks. I have to say that I've never been closer to fireworks before! It's pretty exciting. And loud!
It was nice to have so many festivities right in our community. A great celebration. Happy Birthday Canada!

So fun...for all!
I would love to go to a Pow Wow. Reminds me...to take the boys to the Blackfoot Heritage Centre this summer.
Jealous....our Canada Day was pretty lowkey....bed bound...but that's ok...now he's on the healing side!
