Short trip to Olympia

My cousins Mia and Ashley. Mia has Mallory, Ashly has Layla
Nana and Muriel. I think Muriel has Layla

Here's Katy, Mia and I with our youngest.
This last weekend Katy and I took the babies and went to Olympia for Toni's funeral. Avery got to stay home with Daddy. We had a nice time. The funeral was really nice. We got to see a lot of people that we hadn't seen in a long time! Toni was my Nana's niece. We loved her so much! She was such a great lady. I wish I had a picture of her to put up on here. She was just one of those people who never gave in to her illnesses. She just kept pushing on. I'm so glad I got to have her in my life for the period of time I did. Although we only got over to see her a few times, she definitely made an impact on my life. I'd love to believe that when life throws obstacles in my way that I would be able to handle them the way she did :). Love you Toni! And can't wait to see ya again.
