It is Canada Day and the whole family is gathered to celebrate. They got together in a public park in Vancouver, since they are a very big family: mothers with children, aunts and uncles, cousins, grandmothers and grandfathers. There are lots of little ones, and it is nice.
They have lots of food; quite a bit of fancy baking went there. Maybe the grandmother did it, or maybe it is a potluck. There is chocolate cake, which use to be a very good cake. They also have all kinds of pies, some are vanilla. They have upside down cake with fruits, berries, and sugar; and another one. They did all the work. Cakes can be decorated to please the boys and girls. Boys are interested in animals and girls in flowers.
Children are anxious and eager to try the cakes. One of the kids is making efforts to get up on the table to look. He is too short to see. Later, the children will choose what type of cake they want to try.
The two ladies are sisters; they look alike. They are called Mary and Anne. Anne works, and Mary helps her sister babysitting her young children. Mary and Anne are trying to keep thinks in order and make sure everybody has enough to eat. Both are smiling and having a good time.
They are all tired at the end of the party. Children have been running around all day, and they are falling sleep in the car. They will go to bed early today. Parents are also tired. It takes a lot of energy getting everything ready, although fathers were not a big help. No need to worry about cleaning since the party was at the park.
Everybody was happy, and they are going to do it again next year!
