Canada Day with Will & Kate


We had the same idea as 300,000 other people.   We went to Parliament Hill to greet Will & Kate.  

I can't believe we actually made it on to the Hill. We only arrived at 10 am.
Saw the Royal's flag raised

This was our view of the stage
What we wore
We were close to CBC's Heather Hiscox
Saw Steven and Chris
The band and motorcade


And of course caught a glimpse of Will & Kate (red hat) - a little fuzzy, Prime Minister Harper is to the right of Will

The snow birds


I don't think we will ever forget it.  Have a Happy Canada Day!

  2. Wow, so close. Interesting to hear your point of view, I heard on the radio today that most Canadians couldn't care less about W&K, they were more fussed about the money spent on security. I bet your girls were sooo excited to see a future queen!

  5. Oh! How fun! I have a major crush on Kate, and thought there was slim chance of seeing them in Yellowknife, but alas...no such luck. Glad you had a good time! Happy Canada Day!!

  10. Brave lady! I would have loved to venture downtown, but I'm an organizer of our local celebrations, so stayed close to home. Great photos! Your girls must have been so thrilled!

  11. How exciting!! If I lived in Canada, I would have done the same thing. Your attire is just splendid. We're home and digging out from beach sand and dirty laundry. I'm enjoying getting caught up with one of my favorite blogs!

  13. Aw Man, SO lucky!!! I don't care what anyone says about the Royals. They are a part of our history and I think they're pretty amazing. I'm so glad you were able to get so close and really get into the spirit of the day. Yay for you and your family! Happy belated Canada Day!
