Crazy Girl

Tori is 15 months old and is one crazy girl. She's such a cute, petite little thing, but what she lacks in size she makes up for in attitude. Her personality is coming out in full force and she definitely knows how to voice her opinion.

Nicknames: Tori-Baby, Baby Girl, Baby Sister, Sister Girl, Tor-Tor, Torrence, McGilicuddy (don't ask)
Favorite Toy: toilet plunger (DISGUSTING!! Which is why our bathroom door is to remain closed at all times)
Favorite Blanket: pink-flowered fleece
Favorite Animal: fascinated by dogs and likes to imitate them
Favorite Book: anything with actual paper pages that she can bend and crumple
Favorite Pastime: sucking her thumb

We sure love this fun, sweet, opinionated, stubborn, beautiful little girl!

We love the zoo!

School's out for the summer! (Phil's last day was Thursday) And daycare's out forever! (The kids' last day was Wednesday) We decided to celebrate by heading to the zoo. The weather was perfect, the day was perfect. I don't think we've ever had more fun at the zoo.


Keith and Robyn got their horses out for the kids to ride on Memorial Day. Tori LOVED them. Just look at her reaching out for them and then her face lighting up when she finally gets a turn to ride.

Tate, meanwhile, was begging me to let him go back to the yard and play. He was content just watching the horses from a distance, although he finally did warm up and have a ride himself.
