  3. Happy Birthday to Canada! What a terrific tribute. Lovely photos.

  4. I love that you love my country - and I'm wondering if the Cranston you picture might be Creston or Cranbrook - both of which are well known to me and studded with family.

  5. What darling photos...hugs to you!

  6. Happy Canada Day!!

  7. Great pics! I have not been there but someday.
    Happy 4th to you too.


  8. Great collage, I recognised some of those names from our RV trip many years ago.
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by.

  9. Beautiful photos. My sister has lived on Vancouver Island most of her adult life, so I have visited her several times. It is a gorgeous place to live and visit. What part of Canada did you grow up in?

  10. Your childhood pictures are priceless! Looks like 3 girls, right? Love your matching outfits. I was in the car the other day when they said it was Canada's birthday. I started singing, "Oh, Canada, oh, Canada." That's all I could remember. I had neighbors across the street from me that were Canadians. We would invite them to our 4th of July party and they would sing us their Canada song. I really enjoyed it. Happy Birthday Canada! Thanks so much for your concern for our son-in-law.

  11. Beautiful mosaic. Such a lovely tribute to Canada. We're home and digging out from beach sand and dirty laundry. I'm having fun catching up on all my favorite blogs.

  12. LOVE IT! Just Love it!!!!
    I have been to all those neat to see your captures.
    Have a wonderful July4th!!!!
