Canada Day Weekend
We had such a great Canada Day weekend!
I think we found a little Alberta paradise... three hours north of where we live -- which is already north! -- I don't think it ever got fully dark at night. It was still light at 11 pm and started getting light by 2:45 am. We enjoyed a Northern Lights show one night...
We camped for six days at Beaver Lake, with our trailer looking over the beautiful lake... our own private beach for the kids to play... our own private playground and a huge field for them to run in. Even though this is bear country, we all felt safe everywhere we went. Well... most of us!
We had some hot hot days and the kids all loved the beach! I am pretty sure the parents did too.
One of our friends brought out his boat and everyone who wanted to, got a turn fishing.
There was a wild strawberry patch next to our trailer and the kids just helped themselves.
Oh, how we love this country of ours!
