Canada means a whole lot to me and I'm so excited that we celebrate our 146th birthday as a country on July 1st! It's a day for Canadians to come together in a celebration and represents different things to different people. To me, Canada represents freedom, multiculturalism, snow (lol), and a proud set of people! I think of our flag, our Canada Goose, our Canadian companies and the Canada Day celebrations that happen all around the country!
Did You Know?
My favourite thing about Canadian Geese is that they are monogamous creatures. Once they find a mate, they stay with them for life! Also, the female chooses her mate. ;)

When I think of the Canada Day Celebrations I think of the fireworks displays all across the country! The one they put on here in Winnipeg has gotten better over the years, and I can only imagine what it's like in Ottawa! This year is extra special because our daughter is old enough to come and enjoy the fireworks too. I'm curious to see what she'll think of the loud noises. How did your kids react to fireworks when they first saw them?

Happy Canada Day to all those Canadians out there from my family to yours!
