Canada Day seems like months ago. The day we all celebrate the great country we live in. As our boys get older, they become more aware of all things Canadian. Maple syrup, the maple leaf and the national anthem. It’s pretty cool to see them learn about where they live.
Also, Canada turned 149 years old. A fact that Charlie was very proud to know. He also likes to ask if I am older than Canada? Thanks. They also like to point out that I am older than the CN Tower. Again, thanks guys.
So how did we celebrate July 1, 2016? Well, we did it the only way we know how. With family and with the Toronto Blue Jays.

Do you get tired of not having a voice when it comes to the products and services you use? Yes, you can tweet and share your thoughts on social media, but do you really want to get your ideas to those who actually make the decisions? If yes, online surveys are the way to go to share your opinion.
At my age, I don’t make a big deal about my birthday anymore. I like it quiet and without a lot of attention. Facebook messages is about as crazy as it got. I had a nice party with the family and another nice dinner with my extended family. Perfect in my books.
The one highlight that I want to share is the gift my wife got me.
We are going to see Jim Gaffigan in September. Huzzah.
You know what toy has stood the test of time and still rules in our house?
Hot Wheels. Yes those tiny cars that every kid loves to play with and dream about driving one day. Both our boys have loved Hot Wheels since birth it seems. The cars, the cartoons, the bikes, the gear, the colouring books and everything else Hot Wheels.
We can barely get by the giant bin of cars at the grocery store without a meltdown for a new car.
I also love Hot Wheels. They have been around since I was a kid. They are quality built and they keep turning out new versions. The wheels are always aligned for smooth rides and the crazy tracks you can build are what kids dream of.
Yes, we love Hot Wheels.
