Welcome Beautiful Spring!

I’m here! Apparently we’ve got people with some serious Cox-Quad-Withdrawals going on and I apologize. I’ll admit though, I’m a bit flattered. Sometimes I wonder just how many people still read what I write and I’ve been reminded over the past few weeks there are PLENTY of you still tuned into our busy lives. I will tell you if you stay tuned you will not be disappointed :)  Remember you have the option of following via email.

The weather has been beautiful here in our neck of the woods lately and spring time is in the air! We had our local Moms of Multiples “Spring Fling” this weekend and had a blast. Bret’s been super busy 22/7 lately so I’ve been running things solo most of the time. Challenging but possible, nonetheless. This weekend’s Spring Fling was no exception. Pulling approximately 160lbs behind me the Quads and I chugalugged in our choo choo to join our fellow multiples families for some spring time fun!

When going out, especially among a numerous amount of other babies and toddlers I like to dress mine all the same or similar. It’s easier for me to spot mine out in a crowd when they’re all in yellow, red or in today’s case, overalls! Special thanks to Mamaw, we love the denim! Lots of pics for you today and several are multiple attempts at one picture. As always, it’s hard to get them all to look in one direction, at the same time. I’m able to bribe them nowadays (shame on me. whatever.) to do certain things for candy. It works…kinda. They all smile at some point, usually not the same point. The downfall is that the smiles are ridiculously fake. Epic fake. So forgive me for the multiples and enjoy…

Korbin, Kylee, Brody & Miss B

There were many attractions during the Spring Fling (phenomenal job to our children’s parties coordinators by the way!). Between the train ride, the bounce houses, the food, the Easter Bunny (which we went NO WHERE NEAR) and the live animals you can bet my little crew wanted to spend every minute with the animals. The goats, of course, in particular. They were in Heaven!

Kylee (using Miss Lefty to assist!!!) held her cup just close enough to draw the goats in but not quite close enough to feed them. Lil’ tease!

Kylee and another fake smile standing “so tall” on the trailer. Notice her death grip on Angela…baby girl has developed a little fear of heights over the past few weeks.

After last year’s Spring Fling I knew we had to be prepared for the big egg hunt this year. We spent some time yesterday practicing at home (I could do a whole post on that as well. Sheesh!) They did much better this year hunting for eggs and I’m pretty sure we came home with as many as we brought, which was the goal. Notice Kylee’s got hardly a bottom layer of eggs in her basket while Baxlyn’s is nearly overflowing ;)

Had to throw this one in of Kylee in the bounce house. Our timing to visit the bounce houses was perfect and they were empty. Kylee, for the first time, was able to ”jump jump” without being clobber clobbered and she loved it!

Brody spending a lil time with the “heenk honks” as they call them ;) (Umm.. now that I read the sign “do not feed the horses” I’m thinking they are donkeys right?! Tell me I know my farm animals and the sign is wrong? eeek?)

“Everyone look at Mommy’s camera and smile…” “ok….nobody look at Mommy’s camera and smile?”

spring fling 2012 168Thought it would be a cool pic to stand a bit above them and have them all looking up. Didn’t turn out quite like I planned LOL. Reminds me of the other week’s “touch shoulders” pic! Technically they did just what I asked!
