Twins Triplets & Quads - Oh My!

Our local Moms of Multiples group has activities set up throughout the month where we can all get together with all of our kids. This week - the Fort Worth Zoo! I loaded the babies up bright and early, made the long drive to Fort Worth and hoped for the best! I have a slight obsession with being early (or maybe just a major fear of being late?) So I arrived a whoppin' 45 minutes early. Here's a shot of Korb chillin' while waiting to meet up with his new friends...

Our stats for the day: 4 sets of twins, 1 set of triplets, 1 set of quads & 2 singletons/siblings! *ALL age 3 and UNDER!*
Tew Triplets + Cox Quadruplets = Holy Choo Choo Wagon!
I'm sure many of you are noticing our new umbrellas attached to the wagons. I TOTALLY recommend them especially to those of you who have the choo choo wagon which offers no shade. They are made by Radio Flyer and can be purchased at Babies R Us or Target (online only). The have a heavy duty clamp that attaches to small strollers, car seats, wagons and more. They didn't bother the babies at all and offered GREAT shade from the Texas sun!

Love this one of Kylee & Everett checkin each other out...
A grin from Miss B
We stopped at the cafeteria to feed and change all of the babies and quickly became the main attraction. This is typically what happens on any outing, unfortunately. The grocery store, the doctor's office, or a simple walk around the neighborhood often results in a crowd of people with questions to ask and cameras in hand. Every once in a while we have someone who will ask if they can take a picture of the babies, but most of the time (like in this case) people just bust out their cameras like we are another exhibit at the zoo. If I only have a way to charge a nickel per picture...

Baxlyn was fascinated with this Kangaroo statue and stared for a long time. I can't help but wonder what she's thinking here...
Love this chunky boy :]
They had a small petting zoo for the kids to enjoy. Kylee could have pet this chicken all day. After petting the chicken, she reached to pet the zoo keeper!
All 17 kids did great all day! After 4 long hours we called it a day and loaded back up. 2 of mine were asleep before we backed out of our parking spot and the other 2 quickly followed!
That's all for now, hope you all are having a blessed week!


  1. I just can't say enough in your favor Heather, like everyone said on Facebook, you are THE SUPER MOM! Not only taking excellent care of your babies with the complete side by side care from your SUPER DAD husband, but the fantastic pictures and endless journaling of this blog which is to be made into a book. I couldn't be more proud of you! Love Mom

  2. Thanks for letting us know where to get those umbrellas ... I zeroed in on them right away! :) Glad you had fun at the zoo!

  3. Glad you all had a great time. Heather just like your mom said you and Bret are doing a wonderful job with the kiddos. You are a wonderful mommy to these precious babies and as they get older they will appreciate all the work and love you put into raising them. I think people get tired of hearing me talk about how great you are.

    Love "ya"


  4. Sounds like you had a wonderful day out! Funny how you never thought when having babies that you were going to turn into a tourist attraction.
    Love the shot all the cameras and stares.
    Nice that you had a nice quite ride home!

  5. Seems like a long day, glad you had fun! :)

  6. I noticed one of the choo choo wagons has an extra cart that is dark green and looks like the one that goes with that other step 2 wagon that seats two and can have the ex=tra cart you can buy. How do you attach it??

  7. GPTwinsMom,

    Yes, the trailer is another by Step 2. It attaches just like the orange add-on wagons. There's a bar under the back of each wagon and the front end of each trailor will "fold" right into it!

    Here's the link:

    Hope that helps!
