New York

While Brian was in RA training and gone everyday all day we decided to go and visit our wonderful friends in Houghton NY for a couple days. So Toby, Zoe, JoAnna and I packed up and headed out!! It was our first time to NY. We had so much fun and we are so glad that we did! Here are some pictures of our trip.

We went to a state park, unfortunately it started to pour right after we got there so this is all we got to see. But it was an awesome waterfall and Toby hasn't seen anything like this! He thought it was pretty cool!
Campbell and Zoe playing with the new food Sarah bought! (and by playing with I mean chewing on! ha ha!)
I love this picture!! It was so hard to get a picture of Toby and Campbell with them both smiling and looking at the camera. This one looks likle Campbell is laughing and Toby is praying over her!! :) Really Campbell was mad that Toby was trying to hold her still so she was screaming at him and Toby blinked!
Toby was the photographer for this picture of us girls!! JoAnna, Sarah and Me.
The whole group! (minus Jeff who was taking the picture!)

We had a great time hanging out and seeing the kids play together! We can't wait to visit again! Thank you Kirksey's!

Some of my favorite things that I hear from Toby: 

"I love you Mommy!"
"Mommy, I want to go to heaven to be with Jesus."
"I like you!"
"It's okay, I'm right here baby girl" (speaking to Zoe when she is upset) 
"You my sweetheart!" 

He is so sweet to me and to Zoe. I am so excited to see the two of them grow up together! So far they love each other very much...... I know that will change sometime! :) I cherish their laughter together now so much!
