Canada Day 2006!

Happy Birthday Canada!!

YAAA!! Today is Canada Day and the weather was perfect in every way – warm, clear blue skies with a lovely breeze blowing through.

In the past I used to spend this day riding or putting around the farm. I never really joined in any festivities around town. Now that I am back and have a daughter and a husband who has never experienced anything over here I am making a real effort to do things, see things and experience things. I am really glad I have decided to do this.

Today we headed out to Heritage Park; the fair grounds in this town, to check out the Little Britches Rodeo, the chili cook off and bring ToddlerJi for her very first pony ride.
Weird I know, we are a horse farm but she has never ridden yet – all our horses are far too large and unsafe for her at the moment. These pony-ride ponies were perfect height.

Then we headed out to Harrison Hot Springs to meet up with my mom and walk along the very busy beach board walk. We had a pretty decent lunch at the hotel and then Li went parasailing. Wahoo!! He had no idea what hit him.

This video is of him touching down after almost an hour up in the air. He was beaming.

Then we went for a drive before returning home, having dinner and watching TV.
