Chilly Victoria Day Weekend

...but oh so much fun!

It is a May-24 tradition here, in our townhouse complex, for neighbours, friends and family to have a big pot-luck BBQ and fireworks later that evening. This year my partner in crime (aka friend and fellow board member) took over hosting duty. We grilled up burgers, sausages and hotdogs. Had lots of yummy side dishes and an unholy amount of desserts and treats. There was a giant game of street hockey, complete with "Zamboni" driving toddlers who would wiggle their way between the nets and unbelievably patient players. Great food, great laughs and fantastic company. It is so nice for the kids to be growing up in a place with such a great sense of community.

When the night came, winter coats were donned thanks to the 2-3 degree low and kids were running around with sugar in their bellies and sparklers in their mittens.

I even got to help set off the fireworks.
