Happy 145th!

To celebrate Canada Day today, we took our littles to nearby Fort Langley, an old HBC trading post-turned-National Park. 

HBC is now an iconic Canadian fashion brand (summer 2012 swimsuits are very oohlala...) with a cult following.  It was interesting to learn more about the company's beginnings.

We walked through the recreated Fort and got to see what life was like, long before the bikini-launch.









The pipe band heralded the mayor who spoke briefly, then cut a huge cake...likely many a mayor is cutting enormous white + red cake across the nation today...
