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!

  1. We’ve got everything all at once here – snow, sun, rain, forest, mountains, grasslands. Great place to be. Thanks

  2. BC has the longest frost-free periods in Canada due mostly to mild temperatures related with its maritime climate, with flowers often blooming as early as February in the southwestern region of the province. BC has overall the hottest summers and the mildest winters in all of Canada.

    We live in Victoria and we rarely get snow, only when we are lucky lol
