Canada Day Weekend

I believe the world needs more Canada. --Bono

This weekend was Zoe's first camping experience. And like all of our kids, she loved it. She loved being outside and playing in the dirt all day and fell into bed exhausted every night.

She enjoyed her very first smores. Riding her bike. Playing with Lilah and friends. Eating way too much junk food.

The bigger kids spent a lot of time in the river and the mud. The water was very high this year, so we decided not to do any rafting, but they were happy just having mud wars on the shoreline.

It is wonderful to feel the grandness of Canada in the raw, not because she is Canada but because she's something sublime that you were born into, some great rugged power that you are a part of. --Emily Carr

I like travelling to oversea's places, like Canada. --Britney Spears

I hope you had full hook ups while camping so everyone could have a long shower before bedtime! Looks like it was a wonderful weekend, hope you are able to get out some more.

PS. I also love the "Britney" quote!
