Today I want to share with you what has been a new tradition in our family. Our son-in-law Spencer is an RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) and whether working on the day or volunteering, he will be dressed in his red serge uniform in a parade or at a local ceremony. Of course Allison and the now four children turn out for the ceremony and typically one side of the family or the other has arrived for a visit at the same time. This picture is a few years old but I particularly like the various flags in the background and the glimpse of a kilted piper there on the bottom left.
Not only will we recognize the meaning of the day but it is also a day to remember and think about each of our parents and their service.
