Happy Canada Day–Reflecting on our Parliament Hill Celebration–Wordless Wednesday

Sharing is caring!

Happy Canada Day!

This year I spent most of Canada Day in a car driving from Montreal to London.  It is a 7.5 hour drive if you have no traffic and you stop mainly for gas.  I could not believe how lucky I was with nothing but an open door and not one speed trap.  I wanted to post today to share our awesome Canada Day two years ago when we were celebrated on Parliament Hill in Ottawa.  I love Ottawa more and more each time I go for a visit.  Here are some great Canada Day memories.
