Living in Ottawa is definitely a plus when it comes to July 1st - Canada Day. This year my friends and I celebrated all day long.We met early for lunch at Jessica's house, lounged by the pool and made some delicious drinks. After some relaxation, we took the bus downtown and ventured around the city. There were many festive things going on, including Carly Rae Jepson performing, but it was just way too packed everywhere and with no cell phone reception (due to lots of people in one area), we were scared to lose each other.
However, walking around in the nice weather was still a great time with great company, too. A few hours later, we bussed back home for an evening BBQ. I'm not a huge fan of burgers and hot dogs, but during a summer BBQ, it's just the thing to eat. Once we finished the food and after my friend accidentally spilled her drink in my lap, (oops!) we walked over to K-hill for fireworks. They were gorgeous fireworks, but I would have loved to see them downtown - now those are memorable fireworks. But there is always next year!
