No actual Canada Day specific plans. We're going to try to stay coooooool during the day. We might have to venture out to take the kids to the playground though. They have no such concept of staying inside/on the patio where it's nice and cool. Then I work in the evening. Are there good fireworks normally? I don't think I've actually celebrated Canada Day since I've moved here (6 years ago), but I think fireworks might be fun.

I ended up avoiding the crowds by going to work (we were dead because everyone was downtown), and then my coworker and I put our swimsuits on and went to the lake, but it was insane busy so we went out for curry at this place that's usually insane busy but it's not quite downtown so it was quiet and we had a nice trashily-dressed (bikinis and sun dresses) time. Then we went to Wal-Mart for Twizzlers and I came home and cuddled my poor kitty who was really scared during the millions of fireworks (we live really near two huge tourist destinations that have them).
So I guess I didn't really celebrate? I do have potato salad in the fridge.
