We were fortunate enough to spend some time at Killbear with the Drost family for a week. Here are a few pictures of our time.

Chayton's second birthday! The poor little guy had a bad ear ache and had to leave early from camping.
We went for a picnic on some rocks.

Blue Jays game

For Jono's 30th birthday we went to a Blue Jays baseball game as a family. It was an afternoon game and there were tons of school kids there because it's the end of the school year. We sat in the nosebleed section. Stephen's favourite part was the "2 tractors and 1 four wheeler and 2 jeeps" that came out before the game to work on the bases. But he also enjoyed watching the game. Samuel slept through most of it, surprisingly.
The boys got a Blue Jays ruler and pencil.

Random pictures

A family friend who drives a truck stopped by just before dinner one night and invited us to take a look at the truck. Stephen enjoyed playing in the cab and even got to run up and down the trailer which wasn't quite full. However, he wouldn't touch the air horn.

Oma Great holds her third grandson, Samuel. She has really enjoyed having them around.

One day after church Stephen fell asleep on the couch. He didn't want to have a nap, but apparently he was tired.

Stephen and his friend Zachary have desert at Jono's 30th birthday party.

Stephen and Samuel like to hide in the crib. It's actually more Stephen who likes to hide, but Samuel doesn't mind spending time with his brother.

Outdoor fun

Stephen has been spending a lot of time outside since the nice weather has come. He loves the sandbox and trampoline and his "Lightning McQueen" (trike). These are just a couple pictures of our outside activities.

Mother's Day and Father's Day for Oma and Opa

For our parents' special days this year we bought them all a couple of trees, on for each of the boys. Here are pictures of Stephen and Samuel with Oma and Opa by the trees. The first picture is the tree that was bought for Dad by the whole family. This is the Ash that we got for them. It goes in the back along the property line with about 5 other Ash trees.
These are the two lilac bushes that Oma wanted.
