Trip to Pennsylvania/New York

My parents were in town also for a friends wedding. They came over for a campfire.

Jude enjoys climbing into things. He can squeeze into the smallest spaces.

Jude and cousin jarius watching cartoons together.

Jude and Jarius played really well with each other. Jarius is interested in a lot of the same things as Jude, like cars, trains and building towers.

Jude pointed to himself in this picture and said "you". He does that whenever he sees himself in a picture. I guess it's because I always point to his picture and say "that's you" :) Not sure how to teach a 2 year old the difference between speaking in first and second person.

Jude loved riding on the tractor. Every day he would ask to go for a ride.

The cousins

We went out on Chautauqua Lake with the Mohl's.

Jude was very eager to go tubing. He wasn't scared a bit. Here is climbing in all on his own without a bit of reservation.

He LOVED tubing! Look at the smile on that face:)

Jude splashing Daddy in the face.

Claire pretty much slept the entire time. She'd wake up when the boat stopped, but as soon we started going again she was out.

Jude fell asleep on the boat ride in.

Some of my mother-in-law's pretty flowers.

Talk about a bad hair day

Grandma and the "honk" (Jude's word for horse).

Jude watching the "honk" from a safe distance:) He was a bit afraid of the horse. He kept saying "honk, scawy".

We were supposed to go boating with the Mohls' too, but our free day ended up being way too cold! (That's NY though) Instead, Pastor Mohl took the older two boys fishing while Mrs. Mohl, Lincoln, and I stayed inside where it was warm. Your pictures reminded me so much of the ones we took while tubing with the Mohls' a couple years ago.

Love the picture of the cousins! Precious! I'll bet Grandma and Grandpa Laurie were happy to see Jude and to meet little Claire. I want one of those crazy haired chickens!

Jude got the "scawy honk" gene from John!! That's hilarious! Mom told me about that, and I could see it - (don't let mom kid you, she says the same thing about Sassy!) It was great seeing y'all. Jarius had a blast with Jude!
