The picture I took. I couldn't snap my camera quickly enough to take a picture of her hat, but I did get a picture of the giant screen in front of Parliament.
The amazing picture my dad took. He probably could have jumped over the barricades and touched her he was so close!
The sunset that day on the bridge near my house. Thankfully my parents live on the canal and only about a 20 minute walk to Parliament, so it was perfect for Canada Day. We left early to see the Queen, returned home for food and a nap, and then went back to see the fireworks.
The fireworks were beautiful.
It was such a great day - filled with fireworks, royal sightings, friends, yummy food, and Canadian pride!
