It was a great day yesterday as we celebrated Canada Day with a barbecue. All the kids were in the pool, although James took a while to decide to go in. He has to wear his floaties in the back yard, in case he falls in inadvertently.
We had a great feed - BBQ spare ribs and sausages, roasted potatoes and corn on the cob. Everybody contributed a dish and we had "The Battle of the Slaws" - two different coleslaws, but no winner declared. Both were delicious.
For dessert I had dug out a rhubarb pie and a key lime cheesecake from the freezer but we also had Canada Day cupcakes which were a big hit with the kids.
After dinner James eventually decided he wanted in the pool and they were all in for almost another hour while the non-swimmers cleaned up the meal and filled the dishwasher. By this time the water was warmer than the air outside so they were all reluctant to come out. A grand day was had by one and all!
