Sunday April 23, 2000 was a lovely sunny day. What a great photo of the 5 Harvey grandchildren who were born so far gathering on their Grandma Karen Ann Harvey's front step in Sherwood Park. Left to right - Dakota, Luke, Ethan, Keaton and baby Madison.
We enjoyed an Easter picnic with Grandma Harvey, Bobby, and John & Roberta Verwey at Jean Vanier playground including some croquet.
Sunday April 4, 1999 was Luke's little brother Ethan's very first Easter. Since Ethan was too young for chocolate he got a personal flotation device for the upcoming boating season. Luke at 4 years old was already very much into solid chocolate bunny eating.
On Easter Saturday April 11th, Jansen cousins Luke (3 years) and Tyler (2 years) went to the park with their parents and Grandma and Grandpa Jansen. Then the outdoor fun continued on Easter Sunday April 12, 1998 with kite flying with Grandma Harvey. Great ways to celebrate for very active little cousins. We ate our Easter picnic inside as the weather was cool as shown with Luke and the eldest Harvey cousin Dakota.
Two Easters celebrated - Easter Saturday at the Jansen grandparents with 3rd cousins Bryan and Amanda Shular having fun with their little cousin Luke Jansen. On Easter Sunday March 30th Luke (2 years) looked - and ate - chocolate eggs at his home in the Burnewood neighbourhood of Edmonton.
The Easter weekend began with baby cousin Tyler (2 months) coming to visit us in our Edmonton homel Luke (13 months) sure looks pleased to have his first Jansen cousin visit. It was nice enough to snap some photos outside on Easter Saturday of Luke.
On Easter Sunday April 7th Luke (1 year) and his Mom & Dad (Z'Anne & Brad) all went to Grandma Karen Ann Harvey's house for Easter dinner. Uncle Darrell (in Grade 12 and soon to be 18) is in a photo too with the ancient Easter rabbit that had graced decorations at the late Grandpa Murray Harvey's childhood home in The Pas.
First Easter 1995
Luke (5 weeks old) spent his first Easter with his Mom and Dad in northern Manitoba at The Pas visiting his 99 and a half year old Great Grandpa WH (Bill) Harvey at his seniors apartment. Luke looks pretty happy about the whole thing! We were all dressed up for Easter Sunday April 16th worship at the United Church in town. Wouldn't Luke's namesake and Z'Anne's Dad Murray be proud to see us all spending precious time together. Luke's Great Grandpa Harvey picture here would go on to be in all our lives until 105 years old.
