Our Summer so Far

Finally I was able to get to a computer and put my pictures up. Sorry to everone who has been waiting to hear from us. We have had a crazy summer. Matt and I haven't been living at our home for over a month now. We have been in my home town helping my dad out this summer. It has been a little crazy not being at home, but I have loved the company of my family. It is always nice to have extra hands to help! At the beggining of July Matt and I went on vacation with the kiddos and my family. It was a blast. (A lot of work, but a blast)! Here is an idea of what it took to get ready for the trip. Packing List for 6 kids and 2 adults:

1. 2 tents
2. 4 play pens
3. 12 blankets
4. 8 bottles
5. 8 suitcases/bags
6. 1 quadruplet stroller
7. 2 double strollers
8. 4 travel highchairs
9. lots of formula/milk
10. laundry basket
11. 6 water floats
12. 8 swim suits
13. lots of sun screen
14. 4 baby hats
15. 1 large play yard (octagon gate)
16. 2 boxes of diapers
17. large bag of wipes
18. 22 shoes
19. 8 towels
20. lotion, shampoo, soap, hair things for the girls

Okay, there was probably other things I took, but that gives you an idea of what it was like getting ready for vacation. But nonetheless, we had a great time and the kids loved every minute. Here are some pictures from our trip!

Alyssa going down the big blue water slides by herself! I can't figure out when she grew up. It's so crazy.

Brooklynn kissing Lexie and taking her for a little swim in her floaty!

Me and the babies.

Rylee is loving the pool.

Alyssa was taking a break. She is a little fish!

All the babies and their cousin Gabriella going down the slide at the kiddy pirate pool.

We had fun under the waterfall with the babies. They weren't sure what to make of it!

Grandpa going down Cardiac Canyon with the older kids.

Brooklynn, Alyssa, and Issac miniature golfing.

We did have a wonderful time and I can't wait to go again. Its hard to get ready and take all the kids, but we sure did have a fun time!

I'm Back

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. We have been on vacation. Yes, I said it VACATION!!! We went on a week long vacation camping, shopping, and waterparking. I know, we are crazy, but it was so nice to change my scenery. We have been cooped up in our house for the last 13 months. It was so much fun. 2 of my sisters joined us, my parents, and my aunt and cousins from Canada came down. We had so much fun.
I have so many fun pictures to share but, I haven't downloaded them yet. Hopefully I will be able to post them soon.
