Happy Belated Canada Day

Our home away from home

Our Canada Day weekend was spent camping :)

Hubby packed up our trailer along with the two boys and headed out to the lake to meet his parents while L and I stayed home so that we could attend my sister's baby shower on Saturday and then join them the following day. When we arrived at the lake on Sunday they had everything set up.


The boat had been carried down to the waters edge and they had been enjoying rowing it around when the water was calm enough. It got quite windy at times creating to many waves so in between the rain showers and windy bouts they would jump into their life jackets and dash in and out :)

Railway Ties

The kids had fun hunting for old train rails and spikes that they played with while we were there. In the past the logging companies used to bring their logs right down to the lake where they were dumped into the water. In fact quite often when we travel this way we will see the loaded trains full of logs being shuttled in and out of the forest as they still move them by train today.


Of course we couldn't have a Canada Day without any sort of fireworks! To our delight the neighbors let off a few...

Enjoying the show

and the kids had fun waving gigantic sparklers around in the dark :)


I hope you all had a great Canada Day and to all my lovely American friends I wish you a wonderful Independence Day tomorrow!

Looks like you had a great trip camping and celebrating! It has been so un-believably hot here this summer that camping isn't as much fun as usual. I think camping isn't camping without a campfire! So I sure enjoyed seeing your post with an evening campfire=)
