Oh... Canada!

This mural is in the area we live in. I love driving by it and seeing all the detail and the rich history of this country.

When we move back home I plan on having a family tradition to celebrate Canada Day on July 1st. Plus it is just a good reason to have a party! Of course we will have donuts and pancakes with maple syrup. Kraft dinner, smoked meat and poutine. Followed by butter tarts! Oh my!!!

Would you like to see one of my favorite reasons we live here right now? Here you go.... Moose Tracks ice cream ~ a fancy way of saying chocolate and peanut butter swirl (find you some and put your own Moose Track label on it, then you can have Moose Tracks too!) Or Maple walnut which is heaven in a bite and so sweet you'll think your teeth are falling out!

Now if you wanna get real fancy schmancy turn the container around for the French side and pretend you are in Paris!

Have I mentioned that I love your blog? Cause I do.

I lived in Canada, (Kelowna, B.C.) for two years in high school and LOVED every minute of it... it was so different, yet so the same. I loved the french labels on everything and the funny differences, eh?

Blessings today!

Sasha, Thanks for the compliment! Wow B.C.! We would love to go there but are waiting until we move back to the states to do that. I wish we could make it for the winter Olympics!!!
