Such a great day spent with family and friends!
On our way to the parade in Cardigan we made some Canada Day crafts!
At the parade we were joined by my amazing friend Ruth and her lovely son Tate! The kids made out like bandits with all the candy they got!
After the parade we headed home for lunch before heading off to Orwell Corner to meet up with more friends. I was ever so delighted that we were able to meet up with my dear friend Stephanie and her family. Stephanie and I and my sister have been friends for AGES!! And even more delightful was to watch our children strike up their own friendships!
One of our favourite things to do while at Orwell Corner is to join in all the fun races. The kids get to play and even the adults get a chance to run a race or two. Stephanie and I practiced and practiced our three legged race abilities and felt sure we would do well...
We had supper at the waterfront in Montague--hotdogs, juice and cupcakes for all. Unfortunately Stephanie and her sweet family had to head back to their cottage, but hopefully we can find some time tomorrow to hang out as well.
We enjoyed a bit of down time wherein we broke into song and sang a rousing God Save Our Queen which was quickly followed up with O Canada! Then we were off to Souris for the fireworks show.
