We figured out how to turn on his (very) vintage oven and I baked chocolate chip cookies while we were there. He loves to eat them with his coffee in the morning so I figured he could use a fresh stash. Plus, what's better than babies happily playing and the smell of yummy cookies in the air? And yeah, the babies all got their first taste of chocolate chip cookies. I may have created four little monsters.
As a bonus, our former Houston nanny, April, was able to come by and hang out for awhile. She actually nannies for a family in the nearby area (she and her fiance relocated so we're able to see each other on occasion now!) and the quads were super excited to see her as well.
The husband popped up the pack-and-plays for their afternoon bottle feeding and Grandpa just looked on in amazement. He asked many eager questions about if we had four of everything, how the babies did during the daytime and their activities, how they slept at night and how they interacted with each other. He doted on each one and admired all their very individual personalities. The babies definitely shared tons of smiles with him, especially Harrison!
After we fed them, we took the crew outside to meet the goats that live next door. Right as we got to the fence line, the biggest goat of them all came up and gave Logan a good sniff! She spent most of her time talking to them and the babies were totally enamored with the scene.
It was a truly great afternoon and we got back to the house just in time to get the kiddos ready for their dinner feeding and bed. It was obvious they had really enjoyed the outing and getting to experience a new environment. But best of all was the photo we got with the husband, his grandpa and his great grand-quads. One in a million!
