HAPPY CANADA DAY!

Here in Canada, we celebrate the confederation of our country every year on July 1st.  In honour of Canada Day, I got up at 5:00 so I could have my morning chores done in time to go to the nearly village of Milo for the free Canada Day breakfast held at the Community Hall every year. 

 The population of Milo is approximately 300 people but I know more than that come through the breakfast during the two hours it is on.  Sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs, pancakes, juice and coffee are served to the masses by the local Lions Club! 
This well tanned but cheerful grey-haired lady is yours truly.  As you can see, I thoroughly enjoyed my breakfast!  It was a nice break to take an hour out of a very hectic weekend to share a meal with the good people of Milo and celebrate!  I am on my own here today, as my husband left after breakfast to go to the city for the opening game of Calgary's CFL team, the Stampeders.

Wishing everyone a happy Canada Day and to my friends south of the border, have a great 4th of July!

Hi Kerry ... that's a lovely tradition ... to enjoy a fabulous breakfast with all from the community!

We BBQ'd ... none other than Grsde A Canadian Beef ... mmmmmmmmmm! ... oh ... and hoisted a few "Canadians" to wash it down!

DD & her friends have developed their own Canada Day tradition ... the all go down to Kinsmen Park ... enjoy some great Canadian food ... like French Fries ... then enjoy the fireworks!

This year they were even more spectacular ... celebrating not only Canada Day ... but Pickering's Bicentennial too!

Woo Hoo!

Hugs ... Marie
