Flying Canoe Volant

Last night I went to the Flying Canoe festival for the first time and had a magical time walking around looking at the sights and sounds. Their website says the festival is “[i]nspired by the legend of The Flying Canoe and French Canadian, First Nations and M├ętis traditions[. T]his event celebrates our beautiful Mill Creek Ravine and the newly-established French Quarter.”

We only walked through the Mill Creek Ravine portion of the festival so next time we go maybe we’ll check out the other areas that are set up. The weather was beautiful which made it an even better experience. Below are some pictures and a video of some of the things we saw.

Christmas Tree

Watching vloggers on Youtube makes me want to vlog as well. However, I’m pretty shy and would probably never have the courage to actually do it. Growing up, my dad would make home videos. Basically just filming what’s happening around him. I have videos of my mom taking care of and playing with my brother and I at home. There are videos of family spending time together at my grandparents house and while camping. He would record every Christmas watching us open presents (we were never allowed to start until the camera was ready!). These are the kinds of videos I think I would like to make, especially once I have children. Last week I decided to record myself setting up the Christmas Tree. I sped up the video to make it actually worth watching, and here is the result!
