HAPPY 144TH BIRTHDAY CANADA!!!
We spent today enjoying the holiday at Burnaby Village Museum where large crowds gathered to enjoy a BBQ, celebration cakes and a very fun time. We met up with Robert and Loretta and spent some time eating lunch and visiting. Dakotah and I stayed at the park until after closing. It was her first visit and she can't wait to go back and see more on a quieter day. The museum is celebrating it's 40th birthday and has free admission this year, so we will be going back in the near future!
Loretta, Me and Dakotah
Dakotah and I
A cake artist at work piping on the cream frosting...num...strawberries and blueberries are the decorations.
Below are the wonderful decorated cupcakes Loretta brought and shared with us...they were a wonderful treat!
The RCMP all decked out in their red serge uniforms.
Below is the line up for the cake, by the time we came back it had more than doubled and was up and down the hill and snaked all over.
More line ups for cake!
Dakotah and some of the other children rolled down this grassy hill to the side of the cake line up, it helped pass the time and rolling down hills never goes out of style for children it seems!
I think this car is from 1928, someone ran by and knocked over the sign with the details on it so not positive on the year.
We ran across this interesting cow complete with a cow bell on our way to the gate at closing, a fun time was had by all, Happy Birthday Canada!
