It was a perfectly sunny day, full of family and friends and one big Canada Day Party!
This morning began with a pot of coffee, breakfast and presents. Some lululemon gear (post pregnancy sizes.....sweet hubby still thinks I'm a size 4 right now) and a beautiful Bulova watch, complete with 24 diamonds.... a little bling for this plain gal! Spoiled I am...and loving it.
Cole must have sensed the need for mommy and daddy to spend some quiet time together as he decided to sleep in until 11am. While he is bit of a lump, never has he slept in that long. Small, unexpected pleasures that make you smile.
We are heading off to my parents place for swimming and a barbeque, an annual Canada Day tradition. We were hoping to break tradition and take a mini vacation this year. No such luck, instead we spent the afternoon with a real estate agent listing the house. We figure if he's willing to work on Canada Day, we're willing to share our day with him!
At this time 9 years ago, we were married (minus the name changing...sorry Tim, one day it WILL happen) and we were headed for pictures and then the reception. I hope the next 9 years is just as wonderful, and the 9 after that....
Happy Birthday Canada!
