Happy Independence Day!

Like Bacon, I am also Canadian and American! I was born in Toronto and lived there until I was 10 years old. Then my family moved to the Seattle area, and I have lived on the West Coast ever since - now I'm in Southern California. I love and appreciate having been raised in Canada, and of course I love the United States too - especially since now I've lived here for over 12 years! Happy birthday, Canada & the USA!

Today I met up with some of my co-workers at a large park/beach here in town. We played whiffle ball, badminton, frisbee and others played volleyball as well. There was SO much food since one of my co-workers is Vietnamese and almost ALL her extended family and all her friends showed up. We had everything from papaya salad to papay to chicken skewers and all the snacks you could think of! I had a great time getting to know them - and definitely got a bit of a burn in the process (mostly my back/shoulders) - but it was a blast! Now my roommates and I are off to watch 4 different fireworks shows from the hill on which our alma mater sits. Be safe & have fun! :)

That sounds incredible! I wish I was on a party level with my coworkers.

That is cool that you are Canadian and American. I have a few friends like that here in Texas. I never realized there were so many Canadians in the USA!
