Let's Celebrate Canada's Birthday!

We've always celebrated Canada' Day in many different ways.
Two years ago we hoisted our flag to the skies and sang,  "O Canada."

Last night we celebrated with our family indoors on a cool summer night.
While I was in Europe, I ordered Bocconcini Salad whenever it was on the menu.
It became a favorite and tonight I shared this with our family.
If you want a simple rustic salad with fresh flavors, head over to MGCC.
Today during the day, we plan to pack a simple picnic and head up towards the lake.
And hopefully the skies will clear so we can watch the fireworks.

 I truly can say after my travels to Europe this past June, that I am so proud to be a Canadian.
(Put aside the most recent riot in Vancouver)
I've been in many countries...but there is no place like HOME!
Canada is my Home Land and I am so thankful for our country.
I agree with the words by John Diefenbaker,
"I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way,
free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong,
or free to choose those who shall govern my country.
This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind."

Happy CANADA DAY to all of YOU!!
