Easter and week #30...

It was another busy, but good Easter weekend.  We had a beautiful & reflective service at church on Good Friday, spent the afternoon helping my parents with some reno's at their new place (...more on that later) and ended the day with dessert and games at my Mom & Dad's place.  Saturday was our day to get some stuff done around the house and then we headed out to Jon's parents' farm for the annual Easter egg hunt and a family dinner.  Its always a ton of fun watching the kids' excitement as they run around the yard, searching for their Easter treats.  While we were at the farm, we got Naomi & Susanne to take a few pictures of us, before the little one arrives.  Here are a few of my favorites...

Jon found an old pitch fork near the barn and insisted that we pose like "the famous old couple."  Some of you may know what I mean by that, based on the picture below... :)  

And a few good shots too...

(Doesn't it look like I have a basketball under my shirt!?  I don't realize how "round" I'm actually looking these days, until I see pictures of myself.  Sheesh!)

Anyway... Sunday was the big Esau gathering at Grandma & Grandpa's.  We ate a huge meal and though I did help myself to "seconds," AND dessert, I will confess that I was still hungry at the end of it all :)  I'm hoping my appetite will start to slow down now that I'm nearing the end.  I mean, surely I'm going to run out of room sooner or later.  Right??

And last but not least, an official 30 week pregnancy picture for those of you who have been curious about my recent growth.  I feel like the belly expansion has slowed down a bit, but I know in reality, I'm still growing daily :)
 The only other exciting news I have is that we are going to get to see U2 again in concert.  They're coming to Vancouver in October and Naomi managed to get tickets for all of us siblings.  So we're going to have a "couples night out" this fall and are all VERY excited about it.  Jon and I got to see them in 2005 when they were here for their "Vertigo" tour.  I never thought we'd get to see them again so soon!  Dare I say it, but we can't wait for fall to arrive!  :)

I LOVE the "famous old couple" picture! I know exactly what you mean. Nathan and I always get a laugh out of our Christmas cards because there's always at least one old couple from our church who does the good ol' menno-pose (as we call it). And Nathan will be super jealous when he hears that you guys are going to see U2 again! He's already told me that he needs a couple hundred dollars to see them in LA!

Fun post Bonnie, you are looking bodacious and bumpy! It is fun to see someone else in the family pregnant in all the pics, I guess this is only the first of at least twelve pregnancies, right?

Love you,
Naomi

P.S. Thank goodness for great sisters and Aunties like Viv!

Seriously Bon! You are going to pop! Can't believe you are going to be a Mom so soon!!!!! AHHHHH!!!! :) :)

Susanne said...

So, just to confirm....it's not a basketball...there is actually a baby in there...I felt it. He/she kneed or elbowed his auntie pretty good last weekend. Was amazing to definitely without a doubt feel a human being in there. Can't wait Bonnie!
