I babysat Elyssa last night. She'll be 8 months old next week. She has 6 teeth, can sit and inch forward but isn't quite crawling yet. She loves being in the bathtub, playing peek-a-boo and making kissy noises with her mouth. We had lots of fun!
Maybe too much fun! I guess I tuckered her out. She fell over reaching for a toy and was quite content on her belly. Then I started rubbing her feet and she was out like a light.
Isn't her outfit cute?!!
Awww ... so sweet!

I harvested 3 cups worth last night and made wonderful rhubarb muffins.
I'm not sure what this is ... but it looks like weed ... no, not weeds ... WEED. Get it. I got it from the Schriemers. hmmmm ....
And Reuben had the New Zealand rack of lamb.
On Friday morning, we headed on to Reuben's parents place and then quickly got ready for a wedding. Andre Schutten and Karyn Vandooren. The wedding was beautiful. Especially the music for the signing. It was "The Lord's Prayer" by Malotte. Two professional singers sang it and it was so beautiful, it moved us all to tears.
The bride and her father.My sister-in-law, Karin and I.
On Saturday, Reuben and I drove up to Midland for the funeral of my cousin, Ryan. Ryan died tragically in an accident. He was only 27 years old. Unfortunately, I never got a chance to get to know him too well. I was thankful we had the chance to be at the funeral for the sake of my aunt and uncle and other family. It was a 2 hr drive up to Midland. Afterwards, we drove Diana and Mike back to their place, where we stayed for the night. On the drive, we stopped in at the Creemore Springs brewery. Cute little place.
My sister and Mike. She is due in 4 days. Come, baby, come!!That night we went to the house of one of Reuben's friends from college. Him and his wife and daughter live in Fergus. Another friend of their's and his fiancee were there, as well. It was neat getting to know them better and Reuben had a great time reminiscing with his friends.
On Sunday morning we finally got to see our niece. Here are all the lovely pictures of Hadassah that we took. She is walking and saying "mommy, daddy, ossie (for their cat, Oscar)" and she can put shaped blocks in their correct holes. She's a smart little cookie!! And soooo adorable.

It's been far too quiet in our house. I am hoping he'll be home tonight before midnight but I have no guarantees so I will wait. I'm just glad Evelyn didn't call me last night. If she goes into labour in the middle of the night we've agreed to run over and watch the kids for them. I was so worried it would happen last night that I couldn't fall asleep. Silly me!
I planted New Guinea Impatiens and some other purple flowers in our garden to brighten things up. They look great! But I don't have pictures. You'll have to stop by to see them. Gardening is good exercise!
Yesterday was Father's Day. Here are some pictures.
We got him a GPS for the car.
