Happy Canada Day!

Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian readers! We had a nice family time here yesterday - slept in, worked around home and then had a lovely dinner over at my grandparents. Shawn, Scott and I drove up to a nearby town and and saw an amazing fireworks display on the river. We bumped into a few people we knew and our friend Louise sat with us. Scott took the fireworks pictures. A fun filled day!

O Canada! Our home and native land! True patriot love in all thy sons command.

With glowing hearts we see thee rise, The True North strong and free!

From far and wide, O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

God keep our land glorious and free! O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

Cool pictures!
I'm American, but that's no difference, because all God's children should love each other and celebrate together- land borders aside.
:-)Happy Canada Day!

PS I like your national anthem's words more than the US's...
...but don't tell President Obama.
