Phew…it has been a DAY…but definitely in a good way. This is my 7th Canada Day & definitely my most fun (that I can remember, anyway). Dewey, Evan and I headed down to Prince’s Island Park to celebrate Canada Day Calgary style.
The day was beautiful and the park was PACKED.
Evan was a bit sad after he threw an EPIC temper tantrum over having to put a wristband on. It had Dewey’s cell phone number on it so that he could be reunited with us if he got lost. I guess he was hoping to lose us on this trip.
We quickly figured out that Evan was starving & blood sugar issues were definitely adding to his bad mood. Thankfully we brought a picnic lunch because there were hundreds of people in every single food line we passed. It was INSANE.
One of the highlights of our day was running into our friends Rea & Jon. We haven’t seen them in a while so it was great to catch up.
There were even crafts for the kids. I had to convince Evan that, yes, he did want to make a craft. That boy!
The final craft product on the right. A bird made of two Maple Leaves. How clever! (The volunteers looked like they just LOVED this idea…no not really. They looked really bored.)
Another highlight of the day….Evan learned how to eat cherries like a normal person. No more trying to eat them like an apple and squirting cherry juice all over. Yay for Evan and our laundry!!!
Me & the Monster
Too much excitement for this little boy!
