Happy Canada Day!

Canada Day was, of course, on July 1. Why, then, am I blogging about it on July 8? One simple reason: we have been on the road for the past week. We were heading up to a cottage that has been in Spencer's stepfather's family for a number of generations (more on that in a future post) and stopped in Ottawa on our way to visit our friends, the Backstroms (who actually live just across the Ontario/Quebec border), and witness the Canada Day festivities in the nation's capital. The city's excitement was heightened by the arrival of a certain Duke and Duchess.

Eliot fell head over heels in love with the big trampoline in the Backstrom's backyard. If you ever needed to find Eliot your best bet was to look out the back window and there he'd be.

I love his look of total concentration.

We also took a trip to the Ottawa River where Eliot played in the water with the Backstom children and Peter enjoyed the shade with Daddy.

Off to the next adventure!
