I also surprised them with maple glazed donuts from the local donut shop.
This picture is about as Canadian as it gets, right? =)
Also bought these maple creme cookies "Product of Canada!"
It didn't have anything to do with Canada Day, but the vacuum cleaner needed it's quarterly hair removal and colonoscopy :P
I hung the flag on the garage for the rest of the day
The kids and I with the flag (at least the girls were representing the red and white here!
At house church, baby Joia was dressed in red and white in our honor! :)
...I then switched out my earrings and added a blue polka dot scarf before we headed to a Patriotic Tribute service at Central Christian (the kid's piano teacher was the pianist for the huge orchestra/choir performance and she invited us).
It was not like any service we had attended in a church before, but it was a lot of fun! Everyone got flags, it was very loud and they had beautiful music, some dances, a fiddler, fireworks, and a balloon drop!
Beautiful tribute to all the branches of the military
(They played each branch's song and as it played, all the audience members who were part of that branch stood)
The flag hog
The balloon drop at the end
Then it sounded like fireworks as the balloons got popped!
The grand finale was Dilly bars for everyone!!
(Notice Philip's shirt, representing both countries) :)
Happy Birthday, Canada!
