Flags and tattoos ready for Canada Day!

My new flags! Artist: Curtis Wilson, in Campbell River, B.C., where my brother lives!
My pasta flag for last night's dinner.

First up, putting on our tattoos! Izzy was really good at this! We all had one! Then we did some colouring until it was time to leave. Grampa was watching tennis, although he was hard-pressed to find it. TSN had on the hockey drafts on 5 channels, and yet we have several top Canadians in the tournie.

What a great Canada Day! After a false start in Perth (no face painting), we found some fun, and rain, in Smiths Falls.

The Crystal Palace was deserted.

There wasn't too much going on...despite promises. We walked along the Tay River, to where the boat rentals were situated.  The min-golf wasn't ready, due to the amount of rain we've had. Another time! The Food Table volunteers were selling burgers.

We checked and went on into Smiths Falls. Unfortunately, the heavens chose to shower us. AFter waiting nearly an hour, Jos couldn't get her face painted. Isabelle had a grand time and after a short line-up for a hamburger, she went on the slide, had a freezie, and then sheltered under the canopy!

looks like everyone had a grand time together, face painting, for all, rain, a little too much maybe, but great photos of all the places.

You found lots of fun on Canada day and it's made better by having a couple of enthusiastic grandchildren with you.

What a great time Jenn, it was captured beautifully. The girls had a wonderful time in spite of the rain.

Rain or not, a good way to spend Canada Day, particularly if the crowds in the city aren't to your taste.

I expect the real downpour hit there about a half hour before it hit here. I was waiting it out with friends under a building entrance wide enough to keep us all dry.
