the busyness of spring... (revised post)

June is always a busy month for us. Part of that is due to the fact that we have all of the "boys" birthdays to celebrate. Dad Esau's is June 6th, Jon's is the 10th, Konrad's is the 20th and Erich's is the 25th. (Happy Birthday to Erich today!! Hope you have a great day!)

We had a bbq at Erich & Naomi's last Friday to celebrate Konrad's birthday but seeing as only Mom & Dad E. and Jon & I could make it, he'll be having another party in July. The evening was filled with yummy summertime foods, gifts and lots of laughter.

As I sat and watched Konrad play with his new scooter and other birthday toys, I was overwhelmed at how quickly he has grown up. I moved out here just a month before he was born and I remember the anticipation of his birth as if it was only yesterday. I can hardly believe he's already 4 years old. So much has happened over the last few years. So many wonderful memories. Such intense joy he has brought to our lives.




But apart from lots of birthday celebrations, there are quite a number of other things to look forward to as we draw closer to the end of this month. We're heading to Whatcom Lake (just outside of Bellingham, WA) with the rest of the extended Esau family this weekend and are anticipating a time of relaxation, games, food, boating, laughter and rich conversation. All of which I hope are accompanied with LOTS and LOTS of sunshine :)



Then, when we arrive home on Tuesday, my brother and sister-in-law, Craig & Jen, will have arrived from Saskatchewan for their annual summer visit. I absolutely cannot wait to see them. They'll be here for 2 weeks and I was able to book time off work for the last half of their visit, so I'm hoping to fit in as much with them as I possibly can.


And last but not least, (well... its not in June but still in the not so distant future) we'll be taking a trip over to Vancouver Island to see my wonderful friend Kathleen get married. Her and Jack are tying the knot in Courtney so I'm sure it will be a beautiful setting for a wedding. The wedding is on Sunday, July 13, so Jon and I are hoping to make a weekend of it and take the ferry over on Friday night or Saturday morning. Maybe spend a little time at the beach and tour around, since the only island destination we've been to is Victoria. We're really looking forward to it.

Well, I better get going. Gotta get to a hair appointment. Perhaps the next pictures you'll see of me will come as a shock... :) Or maybe not... haven't decided how "gutsy" I'm feeling yet and whether or not I'll chop off lots or just a little. Guess you'll have to wait and see :)

Looking good Bonnie, it'll feel much better now that it's getting hot out to have the short 'do. Have a fun weekend in Washington, maybe we can get together next week sometime. Perhaps some golf? Or games?
