Whew! What a busy and fun few weeks we've had! First, baby Owen will be coming on June 30th unless I go into labor sooner. We are ready for him and we can't wait to meet him and hold him. Please pray that he is born healthy and that he turns his face around from the posterior position. Two more weeks!!!

We had a wonderful time a couple of weeks ago at Nathan VanBerkom's 1st birthday. All the kids played outside in a little kids pool and it was so funny watching all the little boys have such a really is a blessing that David has so many little friends his age.

I've been taking David to the pool or playing in our back yard with his little kids pool and it's been so nice to be in cool water in the heat that we've been having! David LOVES it and we get to meet up with Ethan and Nathan at our pool and it's fun to see the boys playing together.

David has also been enjoying being with his friend, Isaac. They love each other and play so well together! We love our friends, the Jacksons, and are grateful that David has such a special friend in Isaac.

David took his first "field trip" this past Wednesday to the Middletown fire station with all of his little friends. The firefighters were so kind and patient and did a great job of teaching fire safety and showing the kids the trucks. David was able to pretend to drive a real fire truck and climb around in it...which was like a dream come true for him! :) He also got to turn on and hold the fire hose too. He had a great time and we all had lunch together afterwards while the kids played together. I am so grateful for our community of friends here. Having so many moms and kids so close is so wonderful.

This past weekend, we had a care group BBQ and it was an absolute blast! Dave did an outstanding job as grill chef :) and David and Jake and Isaac played outside and in the pool. We enjoyed fun and fellowship and after the kids went to bed, stayed up late playing games. It was such a wonderful time being with our dear friends and we were glad we were able to do this before Owen comes. :)

Happy Father's Day to all the Dads! Dave was able to see his Dad, my Dad, and his grandfather and David enjoyed the visits too. Happy Father's Day, love! You are a wonderful, wise, selfless, fun, loving, compassionate, godly Dad! I love you.

Hopefully, I'll be able to get around to posting some pictures of the last couple of weeks soon. There are some great ones. Have a wonderful and blessed week!
