Happiness is a Sippy Cup

video

Miss Julia takes her new sippy cup for a spin and likes it.  (That's full-octane regular milk in there, too!)

NICU Reunion

this is a pretty cute outfit, isn't it?


Ella and Julia visit Miss Tara, who took such good care of Mommy when she was pregnant and expecting her twins!

Worn out kids!

Ashton and Lauren were too worn out to eat. Both of them ordered spaghetti and meatballs before they fell asleep. The pasta sat and cooled for half an hour. However both kids came to life when the chocolate fondue dessert showed up at the table!

What lame parents ...

Probably would have been nice if someone took pictures during the day at Great Wolf Lodge. Water slides. Wave pools. Giant buckets of water turning over and dousing dozens of kids. Nope. How about a nap and a book instead?

Day at Great Wolf

Whoo hoo, going to Great Wolf Lodge! Going to meet Mr. Ashton and his parents. (Parked right next to them, too.) Can't wait to play in the water all day!
The twins decided to sit this one out and stay home with Amelia ...

Lauren's first Tee-Ball Game


The T-ball player gets her game face on. Oh, you can also see the nice chin-bruise she got slipping at school the day before. Did I mention that the team photo was taken this morning, of course?



The girls blow off a little steam before the game.



Lauren in the field. She made a nice snag of a grounder moments later. In an unorthodox but effective play she ran the ball over to first base, probably to make sure there wasn't an error.


Lauren after scoring her first run!


Finally, the reason why anyone plays T-Ball in the first place. ICE CREAM!

Cowgirl on the Loose!

Nana Pat gave the girls a shower and was getting Miss Ella dressed when there was a big commotion. Miss Julia had mounted her fine steed and was off riding the trail! No one knows what this unclothed rider was out riding for, perhaps she was looking for a diaper!

Birthday Cupcakes!




Here are some before and after shots of the girls as they had their birthday cupcakes. Yes, Julia prefers to eat topless if possible. And yes, Suzanne did do a costume change before the food came out to protect the "good clothes". As you can see she was right to do so!
