Most military communities in Canada are located in larger cities, which makes the military community seem very far away from each other at times. I'm very lucky that where we live now, we have an amazing Military Family Resource Centre aka MFRC. They have a ton of different programming for families. One of the big things they do every month is have a Coffee Break on the first Thursday of the month.
This past month, Coffee Break fell on July 3rd, right in between Canada Day and the 4th of July - so we made it a Canada United States theme :)
We had festive fruit!
Veggies with dip in cups - thanks to Pinterest lol.
My mom made a yellow ribbon cake.
I made the American stars and the Canadian maple leafs.
More of our yummy food.
We also had cheese and crackers.
Blueberry French toast casserole.
All in all the morning was a success. It's one of the things I looked forward to the most when we moved back here.
