Get Off My Lawn

I can't tell if he's laughing or crying.

O Canada

Today is Canada’s birthday so we made our way across the High Level Bridge to the Alberta Legislature to take in some festivities.

This is the bridge we took walking home. Trains on the top, people on the bottom.

The Leg. or as I like to call it: The house that oil built.

A big fountain pool in front of the Legislature.

It seems that in Canada as soon as we get a day without snow and ice we’ll strip down and swim just about anywhere.

Sometimes, after I go pee, I like to wave a Canadian flag. I don’t know why.

And a walk through the forest on our way home. What? A forest? Yes, we have a forest in the middle of Edmonton. The best of both worlds.

I hope you have enjoyed this little tour. We are so fortunate to live in such an amazing country, and a great city. We are also lucky enough to be able to watch the fireworks tonight from our 19th-story balcony. Oh, I have to go pee. Now where did I put that flag?

  3. Trying to come up with something clever to say but the flagging after you pee has me flabbergasted….

  4. I’m a Canada day baby and paid more attention to celebrating my own birthday than my country itself. So it is nice to see that others aren’t as special and had a great day being patriotic! Loved the captions!

    • I honestly…100%…meant to say “others aren’t as selfish”. If I actually meant special, that would be absolutely special. Biggest error of all time there…where is the edit button??? You can edit that one haha!
