Fort Langley on Canada Day, Eh?

Fort Langley Historic Site in British Columbia is a pretty sweet place for families to spend Canada Day.

That’s right, we’re complete traitors now and have rejected The Fourth of July and have replaced it with maple leaf love.  Although really, it’s not that much different.  Canada Day is pretty much The Fourth.  With less blue.

We decided to visit the Fort Langley Historic Site because admission was free in honor of Canada being born and stuff.

It’s a pretty snazzy place where you can learn about the early settlers that were with the Hudson Bay Company and the local aboriginals (which is Canadian for “American Indian”).  Essentially, it all adds up to a Pioneer Day type thing.

 

Have I mentioned how much Six Year Old likes group pictures? . . .
