First of all, Happy Canada Day to all of my Canadian friends, family and readers. Heck, Happy Canada Day to anyone that loves Canada, like me! Yay Canada! I’m reppin’ properly wearing my obnoxious yellow Canada shirt.
Stay tuned for a post later today with for our fun Canada-inspired dinner. But now, let’s talk about holiday weekend plans.
What are you doing for this holiday weekend?
I am headed down to my hometown, Pekin, Indiana to spend some time with my family. There will be lots of good food (I hear something about ribs), good drinks and a ton of swimming. Of course, there will be a few toasts to both Canada and the U.S.
This will be the first family gathering at my parents’ house in nearly a year and I think everyone in the family is looking forward to it. The Broken Plow may be my childhood home, but it has definitely turned into a vacation spot now that I’m an adult. Spending the weekend out in the country eating good food and drinking good beer with my family is the best way to recharge.
Also, Pekin is world-famous because it has the longest consecutive 4th of July celebration of any town in the entire country! 4th of July in Pekin is a big deal. We’ll be headed to the parade on Monday and probably to the fireworks on Sunday night.
I seriously love fireworks.
Alrighty, your turn. What are your great patriotic plans?
