Flat Party

Today was my last day in Ottawa before I mail myself home so my host family threw me a big flat party.

My Uncle and Aunt, Flat Stuart and Flat Sue, were there with my baby cousin Flat Adam. My brother, Flat Cameron, even faxed himself in from Moncton just for the party!

We wore flat hats and ate flat pizzas with flat Ginger Ale. It was flat out fun!

National War Memorial

On my last trip downtown before I mail myself home, I saw the National War Memorial.

The National War Memorial is a monument to the people who fought for Canada in all of the wars. It is really big. At the foot of the statue is a tomb which represents all the people who died in wars but whose bodies were never found. It is called the tomb of the unknown soldier. Here is a picture of me on the tomb.

It is very important that we remember the soldiers who fought and treat their memorial with respect.

Physical Activity Challenge

Since May 1st my host family has been participating in the Ottawa Physical Activity Challenge. During the month of May, if you are active for 30 minutes each day you can colour in a tulip. Have a look at my tulips! I haven't missed too many days.

I wonder if the City of Moncton has a Physical Activity Challenge?

Playing Ultimate Frisbee

Today I discovered the sport of Ultimate Frisbee.

My host family took me along to a game and I had so much fun. Ultimate Frisbee is a fun sport with lots of running where you try to catch a frisbee in end zones like football. Touchdown Patriots!

Cottage Country

Today, I slipped inside a car door that was left open a crack and waited until the car stopped. When it stopped, I looked out and we were at a cottage.

We went swimming and canoeing and had a grand time lying in the sun. Then in the afternoon, it was time to go home. We closed the gate.

Then we put the canoe back on the car.

I was so tired I fell asleep on the way home.

What a fun day!

This morning we had french toast for breakfast. What a great way to start the day!

Then I went to visit Suzie, the hairdresser.

Here I am getting my hair washed.

And here is the finished product. I asked Suzie for pink highlights! Can you see them?

Camping in Gatineau Park

Today's adventure was camping in Gatineau Park which is really close to Ottawa. We had a fantastic time swimming, canoeing, roasting marshmellows and sleeping in a tent.

Here I am helping to set up the tent.

This is the campsite.

It was hard work though. I'm hoping my next adventure will be more relaxing!
