Happy 1st and 4th!

One of the perks about marrying into a Canadian family is being able to celebrate Canadian Independence Day on the first of July along with celebrating American Independence Day on the fourth of July just a few days later.  That means double the parties, food, and fireworks.  While we were in Canada we watched the Raymond parade in the morning then spent the rest of the day eating pulled pork sandwiches and fruit salad at our family gathering.  We loved hanging out with all the aunts, uncles, and cousins.  And of course, we had to stop by the local Town Pump to stock up on our favorite Canadian treats (Snow Bobs, Coffee Crisps, Mr. Big, Old Dutch Chips, and gummy soda bottles!).  I'm sure we looked totally ridiculous checking out at the register with our arms completely full of junk food.  On July fourth we spent the day at Glacier National Park and enjoyed the beautiful scenery while the boys went mountain biking.   My favorite part of the day was eating dinner at SERRANOS, the best Mexican restaurant in town!
