random june

I am in awe that it's almost the end of june. I have one week left of work before being off all summer. And a bit less than two weeks till we head to Ontario. We are also gearing up for mega loewen family fun as my brother and his family are going to be here by the end of the week. I am so looking forward to that!
We've been enjoying the weather that June has brought.. finally summer. We have been working on the yard. We planted seed in the front and have seen it start to come up. I planted a flower bed along with a tree. I just need to finish edging it. I picked out paint for our front door.. I went with pale avocado which goes so nicely with the old vintage blue milk jug that I inherited from my aunt. It was a long story of how it ended up here but I am so happy it did. It carries even more meaning knowing that it came from her farm where she grew up. I love that it's the star of my house.the picture is taken because I had thought I wasn't getting it and Dave surprised me with it one morning. I was so happy!!!
There has also been lawn mowing going on at our house. This picture is especially funny because if you notice the contrast in the lawn it's actually from Dave fertilizing one early morning and obviously not in a strait line. Too funny. You may be able to see it here but the boys are Dave in mini form. In all ways. It's fun to watch them.

We also got to welcome Baby Gavin this month! We had been waiting for him and he is so sweet. I almost forgot how nice a newborn can be.....

We also enjoyed the zoo a couple weekend ago with amazing friends. I don't have great photos nor can I outblog the story. So you can read about it in two places HERE or HERE. Such fun, Such good friends.

Dave is super busy at work these last few weeks. He has been working a ton of overtime so he's tired and we are all so ready for a vacation.
So from the difrans for now we send you all this loving.. for free :)
