Another Canada Day has returned! Canada Day brings back all the amazing memories with my friends in Ottawa. Ottawa being the capital city serves to be a great place to be this time around. The Queen was visiting Ottawa but my friends and I decided not to go downtown. We thought we would only be able to catch a glimpse of the grandiose decorations from her hat due to the usual over-crowdedness in downtown.
To recap the past few years, on Canada Day 2008, my girlfriends and I went up to the cottage and had a fantastic day sun-bathing, reading magazines, having couple of drinkds, swimming in the lake, and chatting! At night we went on a boat to enjoy fireworks on the water. It was a great day.
Last year all of our high school friends started off with a great house party and took the party to a local park, where there were fireworks and rides, poutines, and cotton candies all around! Nothing crazy happened but we remember it to be yet another great Canada Day.
This year, I hosted a brunch at my house. It is actually becoming a tradition among my girlfriends on Canada Day before we headed to any party. Since I was busy making and serving the waffles, my friend Sarah took the pictures for me. Here they are:
For the party, the girls decided to split the food components. I brought these mini Canada Day cupcakes. When I planned icing the cupcakes, I thought it would be easy to draw red maple leaves, but it was actually hard. My first few tries resemble the Red Cross insignia. So I changed my plan to draw a flag sans maple leaf.
I didn’t bring my camera to the party so I don’t have any pictures:( But it was a fun and exciting day.
