The kids still had swimming and tennis lessons, at least until it started raining. There was also some excitement at the pool with patriotic face painting and GIANT bubbles.
because his drawers go into our roof) because when I went to get him some socks they were all soaked. Yuck.)
We got home and listened to the Blue Jays on the radio, because we are old school like that. Once the rain stopped and the roofers were done, we headed outside. We had a BBQ for supper with lots of greens from our CSA. And I got some yard work done. Whoo hoo!
See, I finally planted my snapdragons, which I had been keeping alive in their cell packs for six weeks. And I got some weeding done.
We also replaced a door weather stripping piece which was falling to pieces. This involved borrowing a hacksaw and numerous re-sawing moments. I felt very handy when it was done.
Late in the evening (like at 10pm, which is too late for our kids) we went and saw fireworks. Unfortunately the trees have grown since last year, and the fireworks were in a slightly different spot, so we mostly saw trees, unless we craned our necks. Also Rachel got bored and fell asleep and Sam thought they were too loud. Maybe we'll skip fireworks next year... Or sit in a different spot :)
And that was how we celebrated our country's birthday. Happy 148th Birthday Canada!!!
