Busy Bee

I have  been busy with this web design job..... and gardening........... and never shared some of the pictures I took from our Canada Day Celebrations......... 

 So (because I am putting off going to the gym - feeling lazy) I thought this would be a good time to share.............. 


I like to go the very beginning of the parade - and take shots of everyone milling around getting ready.........Our parade is called the Red and White People parade and basically everyone is encouraged to march in it.  Not a whole lot of marching bands - baton twirling - clowns etc that one sees in other parades - but it is quite truthfully a parade of the people....









  
somehow all the mass confusion comes together and the parade begins............









There are a number of "post parade" celebrations one can attend - this year I decided to head 20 minutes out of town to Grass Creek Park and join in the family celebrations.... 


There were kite demonstrations - complete with workshops for all the kiddies to make their own kites... 











 then there was:

theater




mini golf



face painting



and swimming  



and then as black clouds started to threaten - some of us "oldies" decided it was a good time to head home.............
