Happy Surprise 70th Birthday to my Mom!!

 Jonathan waiting patiently for Grandma to come for her surprise party.

 And she was surprised!

 The 70 year old Birthday Girl only looks like she is turning 60! :)


 Kay, a good friend of my mom's came from CA to join us for the party!

 All the Wheeler Cousins... my Uncle David, Aunt Trudi, and my mom's cousins, Doug, Colleen and Donna, who are rarely together!

 The Happy Couple! My Parents!



 The Weaver family minus my sister Ruth :(

 Jonathan enjoyed mowing the lawn outside while everyone stayed cool inside during our party.

Helping the "silly" Grandma open her presents. Jonathan loves to play with his "silly" grandma!




My Aunt made my mom 70 cream puffs for her 70th birthday!

Another Road Trip South!

 We were quite excited to head out at the end of May because we knew that there was a very good chance that we wouldn't run into any snow during our travels. :) And we were right! We thoroughly enjoyed watching Spring come as we drove from Nova Scotia to MA. In Nova Scotia the buds were just coming out and in MA everything was in full bloom! Beautiful!

 We stopped in New Brunswick for the weekend to spend time getting to know a new church family... we stayed at a farm where Jonathan enjoyed trying out the tractor...

 and trampoline!

And we visited some supporters... Trevor, Bev and their son Nathan, Fun!

 We took them for a little tour of Jacob's Uncle's Lobster Pound too...

 And we saw some HUGE lobsters!

Happy Mother's Day!

 I really enjoyed my second Mother's Day in Canada! Jonathan held up a sign about how much he appreciated his mom... Jacob and Jonathan gave me a rose... and I was just so thankful to be able to reflect on the fact that God blessed me by giving me a family and allowing me to be a mom!

 We were treated to dinner at a nice restaurant! It was fun to get together with Jacob's extended family!
 Jonathan enjoyed playing with his second cousins!

Trip to Toronto!

 We flew to Toronto where some friends let us borrow their car... so we could get around the city as we went back and forth to the Missionary Health Institute. NTM recommended this health institute to us and we are so thankful that we went... we were able to have many debrief meetings as well as medical exams. They see missionaries from all over the world, so they have a lot of experience with so many different issues and medical concerns. I was also able to have my first ultrasound, at 14 weeks, and all is well with the little baby! Notice, I said baby not babies. :) However we weren't too impressed with the traffic there, usually when the GPS told us it would take 20 minutes to drive somewhere, it took us 40 minutes! But we are so thankful for how God planned our trip and provided so much for us!!

 We even had time to go to a park to see the horses!

 And we found a HUGE play place which Jonathan loved! The first afternoon we went, it was crazy busy with lots of kids who were attending a birthday party! The second afternoon we went we were the only people there for a little while!



 Jonathan loved this slide! Every time he went down it with Jacob he ran to me to ask if he could go again. It is only for 6 year olds and up but Jonathan sat on Jacob's lap, he was allowed to go... so fast!!

 He also loved this slide, notice he is at the top peeking out!

And at the end of our time there, Jacob was a bit tired!
