August began with a wedding shower for Emily Zachry! Lauren Behr hosted a lovely party for her upcoming celebration!
The Happy Couple- Emily & Nathan
Emily's adorable niece! She loved all the wrapping paper.
Activity for the night - creating a wedding dress out of tissue paper and toilet paper! :)
Mid August I was able to take Evelyn Tuuk back home to Austin and visit with her family! It was a wonderful weekend and I was grateful to tour the Texas State Capitol again!
Some of the Tuuk Family: Elijah, Ezekiel, Mrs. & Mr. Tuuk, Eden, Evelyn, Elaina, me and Ellen!
Then it was time for a long awaited visit home!!! It's been 15 months since I've been there!!!! I enjoyed seeing the farm, visiting family and friends and enjoying being back in Canada!!! One surprise was that Dad & Mom now own 2 Paint Horses!!! Talk about thrilling!!! I definitely knew how I was going to spend my vacation at home but since we truly were going out of horses we didn't have any equipment, not even a bridle. So I contented myself in looking at them! :) Time to load up on gear again! :) So Rusty and PJ have joined the Kowalchuk's Happy Homestead!
It was so good to see Carla and her family again! They are just about to move out to British Columbia!
It was a joy to visit my brother and his family! Here are Kathlyn and Able as we are ready to visit Sunnybrook Farm.
Sweet little Niah - so excited to meet my new little niece for the first time!!!
Enjoyed seeing Jessica & Kerzdenn again!
A young girl at our church, Genevieve asked my Mom to host a tea party for young girls so another fun activity while home was to have a Doll tea party! It was fun to see which doll everyone brought with them!
My precious Mom
My 18th birthday gift from Kendalyn has arrived!!! :) We really believe in stretching out birthdays in our home! ;)
