Quick Trip

On Sunday after church we headed up to Buffalo, NY for a last minute trip. Josh had to work a couple days up there for his brother and so I decided to take the kids and go up with him. It was the first time I've seen Buffalo in warm weather. It is a beautiful city. The first night we were there we went downtown to show Will the Navy ships. He loved looking at these. We were there too late to be able to go inside, but that didn't matter to him.

Two peas in a pod!

Abby and I near the lake.

(sidenote: These windmills or wind turbines are HUGE! Each propeller or whatever they are sticking off are 3 football fields in length.... yeah HUGE! Josh's brother, Matt, almost had Josh and a few guys from the shop here work on repairing those last year - they didn't end up getting the job though. I loved these. I just thought they looked really neat near the water here)

During the day on Monday and Tuesday while Josh worked, I took the kids to this beach on Lake Erie right near our hotel. The weather couldn't have been nicer. Blue skies and plenty of sun. The sand was so soft and there was also a playground on the beach.

Will played in the sand with his buckets, shovels, and tractor. What more could a boy want? Oh I guess a few slides.... yes he played on the playground as well.

Abby just practiced her speedy crawling. She loved scooting all over in the sand and actually never tried to eat any. What a good girl! There weren't many people here so it was nice she had room to crawl around.

When Josh and I got home and looked at these pictures of Will we couldn't believe how old he looked! :( He is growing up so quickly. His favorite phrase right now is "Why Not?"

Spitting image of Josh!
