Happy Canada Day!
It was a scorcher but we managed to go to Thomson Park and enjoy some of the festivities. We saw some animals from the Bowmanville Zoo and we met up with Tall Guy again.
We always love to see the Historical Museum. I felt bad for the "pioneers" - they were in full costume today.
Of course every party needs some bouncy castle type things.
Most exciting of all... Joshie flew his first kite!
After our evening plans were cancelled due to sick hosts, we ended up watching the last Eurocup game. So sad Italy lost... so much so that we had a parenting FAIL! We forgot to take the kids out to see the parade down the street. By the time we got there, it was pretty much over. So, we all got popsicles which made the kids happy and turned the FAIL into a PASS!
It was really hard to settle down for the night - lots of sparklers and glow sticks turned the kids a wee bit hyper. But, eventually they settled down and didn't wake up when the real fireworks started.
Oh Happy Day!
