Yesterday was the day! Hundreds of thousands swarmed the downtown of Ottawa to celebrate the 142nd birthday of our nation. We heard Prime Minister Harper speak, as well as our Governor General, enjoyed musical acts and many other demonstrations of skill by acrobats and BMX cyclists, etc.
We capped it off with a walk to overlook the Ottawa River so we could see the amazing fireworks last night. For some of our campers this was the most wonderful Canada Day they had ever experienced.
