Happy Canada Day!

It's Canada Day! Daddy had to work, so I took the kids and went to visit my home town with a friend who still lives there.

On our way, we stopped in Uptown Saint John to catch the people parade, which kicks off Canada Day every year. We also checked out the massive craft/yard sale they had going on. Miss Salean loved the parade and was given a flag by an officer marching in it. I was surprised the bagpipe music didn't bother her, she even tried to play along with her fingers!

After the parade, we headed out to Grand Bay, we were a bit late to the festivities, but saw some firetrucks, had a picnic lunch of hot dogs and cookies, and stood while the National Anthem was played.

We had to park at the school and walk, on site parking was for disabled persons only, so after looking around we walked back to the school and let Little Miss play...we lost track of time, but it was close to two hours! She was quite the daredevil climbing on the equipment meant for school aged kids!

On the way out of town, we stopped for ice cream at a produce stand that I visited many times as a kid. It was their first visit to the shop that is quite famous in the area. Salean's cone melted quickly, and Savana enjoyed the bottom few inches of Mama's empty cone. This is a phone picture, so very low quality!

We also had two milestones today! Savana finally found the motivation to start the 'army crawl': Big sister's toast! She can boogie when she wants to! She has been pushing herself along with her toes a bit in the last few days and is able to get up on hands and knees and rock, so it won't be long before she will be off like a rocket! This evening, she was laying on the floor, I glanced away, and when I looked back she was sitting up! It may have been a one time fluke, since she didn't do it again, but it looks like she figured out how to sit up today, to!

You know a toddler had a good day when they end it with a messy t-shirt. Judging by the above, she had a great one!

Happy Canada Day!
