My Country's Birthday?

 So I have these photos of my birthday from my diana mini that I've wanted to post for awhile, but since I already posted very similar digital photos I wasn't sure how I was going to slip them in. But yesterday was Canada Day so I thought that that might make it more appropriate to show you more pictures from my birthday? I was also too lazy to take any photos on Canada Day, or of anything lately so here's some sort of repeat photos for you.
Jon and I went to the Toronto Island for Canada Day after I got off of work to visit some friends and it was so wonderful. We made a fire, ate tons of food, and twirled around with sparklers (and yes I was the most enthusiastic twirler). Then around 11 we headed back to town to join Francine for a midnight BBQ at her house. But on the ferry ride back there was the sweetest thing, just in front of us a young girl (maybe only about 5 or 6) was wrapping her younger brother and sister in a blanket to protect them from the cool lake breeze. She held them the entire ferry ride back to Toronto! I hope everyone is also having a wonderful weekend!
