Not much of a post today – just stopping by in the middle of a busy and fun long weekend to say happy belated Canada Day (to my Canadian friends) and happy 4th of July in advance (to my American friends). I hope you’re having as much fun as we’re having this weekend – a picnic in the park, a visit to the Canada Day celebrations at The Forks, refreshments on our friends’ deck, a stroll through Assiniboine Park topped off with an ice cream treat, a barbecue at Marcel’s parents’ place, a nice family bike ride to and from church, Canada Day fireworks downtown – and it’s not over yet. Tomorrow, we hit the beach.
See you later, when I have more time for bloggin’. (If I have time, I’ll tell you the story of when I joined the rebel bike gang, rode downtown in a protest ride, and ended up with my picture in the paper. Intrigued?)
In the meantime, I leave you with this photo I snapped from the car window on the way home from Marcel’s parents’ house tonight. I wish it meant we were getting rain (it’s been pretty dry), but we’re still waiting.
