On June 18th, my mom and I threw a baby shower / BBQ for Keesje & Luc down at the cottage. It was a beautiful day after a week of rain. Family and friends came out for the occasion and we had some great food, fun, and games. Keesje was exactly 38 weeks pregnant that day. Her best friend was able to come down from Toronto for the day. And our brother Mark came up on the train from Kitchener. He broke his wrist a few days before in a bicycling accident–went over the handlebars!

Keesje and Destiny
They were given some great gifts and now they have pretty much everything they need for Baby Ashe! The nursery is all set up and Keesje just needs to put up some decorations. We are getting anxious for this baby to show up! Her due date is July 2nd, this Saturday, but I have a feeling the baby will be arriving late.

Another notable thing that happened this month is that I finally learned how to ride my dirt bike. Last year I had trouble with the clutch and kept stalling the bike. This time around I can’t seem to kick start it (Jordan has to do that part for me) but I can actually ride around on it. The neighbour let me ride around their field behind our house. Photo from my iPhone:
Ready to ride
And Jordan’s parents drove down from New Brunswick at the end of May and stayed through the first few days of June. Unfortunately I had to work most of their visit, but I think they had a good time. The day before they left Jordan got us on a free boat cruise (through his work).

Let’s see, what has happened since the beginning of the month since I last wrote?
Tulips bloomed and then died.

Won a contest at work ($25 gift card for a store of my choice) and had a yummy potluck!

Things have been pretty busy around here. I have been working a lot, which is good, and Jordan has been on holidays. Now that Christmas is only around the corner, work is getting really busy. We’ll be spending Christmas Day at my mom’s, like usual, with family. And then the following week Jordan and I will be leaving for New Brunswick to spend the first week of January with his family.
And in February — Jamaica! Yes, that’s right, the Caribbean! Very excited to be visiting Montego Bay.
Celebrity sighting: Avril Lavigne came through my line at work yesterday, which was cool. She wore huge black sunglasses that covered half her face but we could tell who it was, especially by her voice and her mouth. She was with a tall guy with dark hair, which my sister thinks could have been Brody Jenner, but as I have no idea who that is, I can’t confirm it. I cannot for the life of me recall what she purchased, but she spent just over $18 USD. I bought the $20 USD she paid with! However, I’ll be spending it in Jamaica. 😉
Last but not least, Keesje is 12 weeks 2 days pregnant. 🙂 Due in July!
