We had a great time catching up with everyone and in our new constant state of change it felt good to be around familiar faces and surroundings for a little while. Midnight rolled around pretty quick and we hit the sack, waking up about 7:30am to shower and get on the road back home. A couple hours drive, a lunch stop and we were back at the apartment in time to put the babies down for their afternoon nap. My mom and step-dad gave us a good report and headed back home while we took our own naps while the babies slept. It was a good thing, too, since that evening Kailey decided she was not going to bed until three hours after their usual bedtime. She hung out with me, cried and fussed on and off and finally went to sleep around 10pm. I'd rather it be then and not at 3 in the morning!
Monday we decided to buck up and join the husband's family in Weatherford at his grandpa's house for fried chicken and homemade peach ice cream. Plus it was the quad's first time to meet their cousins, the husband's older brother and his wife's two cutie girls—with red hair just like Trystan! The babies got to crawl all over the place and received plenty of attention and even logged some time outdoors. We only stayed just over two hours and it was a 40-minute drive each way plus loading and unloading time, but it was definitely worth it to spend the afternoon with everyone and get the babies out.

As our lunch winds down and we refill our tea or curl up on the couch to rest a few moments, the action starts again. One by one, the babies awake and we bring them back into the living room for more playtime. At one point, I laid on my stomach, covered my head with my hands (to protect my hair from 80 prying, pulling little fingers!) and let the babies crawl all over me. I'm pretty sure my little Lolo Bear needs a jungle gym soon, I caught her standing on her chair in the middle of her play pen at home the other day. Sneaky little baby...

Hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
