It’s Time to Party, Canada! #TGCBB 2012

For the second year in a row Mommy Kat and Kids is participating in The Great Canadian Blog Bash! I love this chance to meet new Canadian bloggers and reconnect with some of my best bloggy friends right before Canada Day!

If you’re a newcomer to my site, welcome! My name is Kathryn and I am the energetic and cheerful owner, editor and head writer here at Mommy Kat and Kids.

I was born and raised in a small town on the Saskatchewan prairies and while life in a small town has its ups and downs, overall Lumsden is a pretty wonderful place to live.

Of course, the gorgeous scenery we have down here in the Qu’Appelle Valley doesn’t hurt either!

Did you know that Saskatchewan was once a part of the Northwest Territories? And it was originally settled when the Queen offered free land to anyone that would come and farm on the prairies.

People came from all over Europe, the United States and other parts of Canada to claim their “free land” and Saskatchewan has a very diverse ethnic background as a result.

Saskatchewan is also a province of viciously cold winters and absurdly hot summers and I sometimes think back on the first founders of my province with pride because to live here, a person would have to either be impossibly stubborn or a little bit crazy. And both of those probably describe me pretty well!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. I agree with Elaine, BC has hosted the 2010 Olympics, we also have a small market in Coombs, with goats on roof.. popular tourist attraction

  3. Would love to win this prize and Manitoba is a great province to come to the Ex in Winnipeg and other festivals like the Corn & Apple in Morden and the Harvest Festival in Winkler in the month of August.

  4. Ontario is huge! More than 1,000,000 square kilometres. This is more than the countries of France and Spain combined. It stretches 1,730 kilometres from north to south and 1,680 km from east to west.
