Another Trip to Playwise Kids (lots of pictures)

We went to Playwise kids today to meet up with some friends, and got the first family photo that we've had in 4 months taken. It's always difficult squeezing all six of us into a photo, but this one wasn't too bad!

First time I made this post, no matter what I did, the cut wouldn't work.  I'm trying one more time, and if the cut doesn't work properly, well, forget it, I'm exhausted and if you end up with a lot of pictures on your friends page, I'm sorry, but suck it up.  Edited to add:  Still didn't work, for whatever reason.  I'm too tired to mess with it.  I really must go to bed.  Sorry if it makes all your friends pages all wonky, but I really did give it an honest go at it, I've already wasted 20 minutes of precious sleep trying to fix this.

The kids had a great time, though the triplets were definitely tired, having skipped their morning nap, and since we were there during their normal afternoon nap time... but it was worth it, as usual. Some quick highlights:

Abby getting ready to go down a slide

J-man having fun with sand.

Sam was not nearly as enamored with sand as the J-man. Sam was PETRIFIED of the sand and quite mortified to find it sticking to his hand. He was quite offended by it and didn't like it one bit. I felt a tiny bit guilty taking this picture before comforting him, but it was worth the guilt.

Ellie was the only one who really loved the sand pit. Abby spent the entire time in Abba's lap, but Ellie dug in the sand, and had a grand old time.

And here's Abby - where she spent the entire duration of her stay in the sand pit - in Abba's lap. My little adventuress.
Sam-man showing off.

J-man built this awesome T-rex.

Brotherly Love. Sam had a great time sliding down with the J-man. The triplets fought over the opportunity to have a slide trip with big brother, and big brother couldn't get enough of the attention, either.

Ellie flying!

Once we reached the melt-down stage at Playwise Kids, we packed up the monsters and headed toward home. The triplets napped enough in the car that we were able to stop for dinner and when we got home, the babies went down for bed at their normal bed time, not even noticing that daylight savings time had snuck in so their normal 6:30 bedtime was really 5:30 on their natural biorhythm. They were tuckered, regardless!! Thank goodness!

Your triplets are so blond! Do the blondes in your family tend to turn darker with age? My brother was white-blond when he was born; now his hair is almost black.

I was platinum blonde until I was about 8. Seth was yellow-blonde until he was about 4 or 5. Julian, of course, is not biologically related to us, so not so much on the blonde (his mother is Chilean, so definitely not blonde!!)

I sent the pictures I took to Seth.

OMG THE "babies" are so big! And precious! Beautiful children. You are blessed.

Also, I'm a bit busier than I usually am, but I wanted to offer free babysitting if you and Seth want to go out sometime. You two deserve it.

You're so sweet. Babysitting or not, we'd love to see you- it's been too long. (I definitely understand the busy-ness of planning a wedding... I remember it well... your invitations were beautiful, by the way).

P.S. I know I have to stop calling them babies at some point, but they'll *always* be my babies! (besides they're not even TWO yet!!)

thanks for the pictures! they are awesome as always :) and the first thing i thought when i saw the first photo was "look at all those KIDS!" i mean i know you have 4. and i know that 4 is a lot. but it didnt look like THAT many a few months ago!

oh yum! where did you go for dinner?

It *is* a lot of kids. Hard to get us all into one picture, especially at this squirmy age! :)

We went to Max's for shwarma (and, um chicken nuggets for the kids)

it's weird becuase you KNOW that you have 4 but it doesn't seem like as many as it looks like in the pictures!

i would kill for a max's burger right now! asher is obsessed with the idea of going to nyc so he can see the statue of liberty and eat kosher meat ;)

abby's eyes are so intense! she looks like a little lady.

Abby has *always* looked like a little lady, it's amazing. She does have those intense eyes, and she has this beautiful little stare, but then she'll suddenly break into a wonderful great big giggle. It's awesome.

That's great that you guys got out, especially with Abba (I assume it was on Sunday). Looks like you all had a ball!!
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: March 10th, 2009 12:31 am (UTC) (Link)
it was yesterday. I also work, so Sunday is the ONLY day we can get out. We try to get out most Sundays. Last Sunday we didn't because the girls were starting to get sick (and Ellie ended up admitted to the hospital that night, so good thing we DIDN'T go out), but we had a good time INSIDE the house anyway.
