We did celebrate Fourth of July by attending a parade and whole bunch of other fun activities and then we had a great week before Peyton and I boarded a plane and headed to Canada. We have been here for two weeks now and are having a blast (minus the past two nights of all night teething pain and it looks like tonight will be night number three). Peyton is growing leaps and bounds and has managaed to take four steps on her own and has said her second word, "dog," which has been awesome to see her pointing at dogs and telling me what they are. It almost makes up for the fact that dog managed to beat out mama.
John joined us this week after driving up to Canada (my parents had a car that needed to be brought up here) and had a safe trip minus the detour back to Houston on a plane from the New Orleans airport...you can ask him what happened (something about a forgotten passport?).
John leaves tomorrow and we will be here for two more weeks coming home August 8th. I am sure the next two weeks will be filled with more wonderful weather, lots of ice cream, Tim Horton's, visiting Great Grandparents and showing Peyton the wonderful outdoors. Since we are in Cottage Country (also known as the middle of nowhere) we have the wonderfully outdated dial up internet which means infrequent blogging and no pictures of the beautiful lake we wake up to every morning and my beautiful daughter.
Hope everyone is doing well and we will post soon!

Table Decor, Drink Area and 'O Canada' song sheets
My variation on Martha Stewart's Maple Cupcakes. She calls for fondant made maple leafs but I decided to make sugar cookies instead.
FYI...the drink Peyton is trying to drink is Canada Dry and not beer and it was not open! Just don't want any grandparents going all crazy.
It was a great Canada Day and now we will be getting ready for Peyton's first Fourth of July! She is a busy girl celebrating all of her nationalities!
