Faith’s birthday & Canada Day 2013

July 1, 2013 at 9:17 PM 2 comments

As you all know by now on our street and in our community we have a huge celebration for Canada Day that ends with fireworks. We are so thankful for great neighbours that like to work together to have fun. This year we had our celebration on Sunday, Jun 3o so that we don’t have to get up early the next morning to go to work. Good call.

The night before we painted the Canadian flag on the street like we do every year, this year we made the flag a bit bigger. It’s always fun painting the street with my neighbours.

Also we celebrated a special birthday for Faith as well. She turned 5. We had over all our friends and family that we love so much. Many of our close friends weren’t able to make it this year but it worked out great with Denita and her family coming over and DJ and Caitlyn. Faith just loves these guys. Hopefully next year we can have all those over that couldn’t make it. I guess I need to get the invitations out much earlier next year.

De-Ann outdid herself again with BBQ’d ribs, souvlaki and cupcakes for dessert. Everything was delicious. Each person brought over a salad and some dip, also delicious. Faith had her very own special cupcake with candles in it and everything.

Everyone gave Faith very special gifts. She rec’d a tent with finger puppets, necklace, bracelet and a ring (which she immediately put on and didn’t take off until she went to bed), word search and princess puzzle, and from us her very own bike (with training wheels). Unfortunately Faith wasn’t as enthused about the bike as I was but eventually she warmed up to riding it after DJ and I lowered the seat. It wasn’t until today (July 1) that she actually really rode it, but that’s another story and post.

This year our street was full everyone who lives on the street (almost everyone) invited their friends so we had more people on the street then every before. There was even some dancing going on, Faith and Shawn even got into it. I learned Faith and Shawn are quite the dancers, unfortunately.

It was so great to have other streets from our community join us for the celebration, especially at the end when we lit off the fireworks. Another great job by our organizers Ryan and John. Can’t wait for next year. Enjoy the pictures below.
