Throwback Thursday: Canada Day

Canada Day 1999 - when we were still young and wanting to party enough to go downtown and take part in the festivities. Here we're on the porch of a friend of a friend of a friend's house having drinks (red drinks for Canada day ;) before heading to a parking lot party in the evening. It poured rain and we continued to dance and drink (the drinks were pretty watered down to begin with anyways ;) and have a crazy ol' time!

I'm not sure we ever had that crazy a Canada Day again. That summer Vicky met the man she is now married to, and I made the decision to move to Korea to teach English for awhile (where I got myself fairly partied out ;). I think after that we decided we wanted calmer lives and started a tradition of camping for Canada Day - one that lasted until this past year when the bebes made that no longer seem like an attractive way to celebrate anymore either.

Perhaps we'll start heading downtown again in the years to come so the boys can experience the family-fun that our capital city has to offer on our country's birthday. But we'll see, I'm not so big on crowds (How DID this happen???!! :)

Hi there. This is my first visit to your site. That's a great photo.

Hate crowds? Don't have the energy to party? You sound like mothers! Welcome to the ranks. Things won't change for a few years! :-)

Camping with babes is SOO much fun! It takes a bit longer to pack (and there's certainly more STUFF) but there's also sandcastles, swings, and settling into a campfire knowing that your wee one is sound asleep just a few feet away...and you can have a few drinks cause there's nowhere to drive home to!!
