The Escape Artists!

Ha Ha! The boys have learned a new trick. Maybe not a "trick", but they're pretty darn fast. How do we open this thing....hmm...?

Last week was a busy week. We went to our first MOPS meeting. The boys did okay. I was paged to the nursery twice, but you know how it goes, once one baby cries, it starts a chain reaction. The first time I was called back, almost all 11 babies were crying. I felt so bad for the sitters. They were so calm and patient. They really did a good job! And silly mommy left the boys snacks in the room, and needless to say Ben figured out how to open them. He spilled them all over the floor and was shoving handfuls in his mouth. That's all they needed was to pick up food on top of soothing screaming babies. Next time, though, I think we'll go to the 1 to 2 year old room. I did get to eat breakfast and have 2 cups of coffee. I also made a pretty flower pen and met some really nice ladies. I'm glad it's only twice a month, since we have to be there by 9am, and the boys get up around 7:30-8am. Not much time to eat and get ready. It usually takes me a couple hours to get them ready and fed. There's that Mattie again.

We also went to our first multiples group playdate. It was at the zoo. We met some nice mommies, and most of the kiddos there were about the boys age. We also used our new quad stroller. The boys really like it. I still need to get a pic of it. Ben likes to hang in the back. Adam and Jacob hang in the front. I wish it had a snack tray or cup holder. On another note, it did make me feel like a good mommy when the mommies told me that the boys were pretty happy and content. It's nice to hear positive feedback from other mommies.
We also went to JP Friday night to the concert. Very loud music, but the boys LOVED it when daddy pushed them up and down the ramp by the movie theater. He got quite a workout. We also went for a long walk in our neighborhood. Let me say this, good workout, but that stroller is heavy. I think in my last blog I mentioned NO MORE HILLS. I kind of forgot about that, but this may just get me in shape. Here are some new pics of the boys:
Silly Jacob. He cracks us up! He still closes his eyes everytime he hears the camera beep. I'll never get a pic of his gorgeous blue eyes.
Adam and his BIG grin. He's my little giggle guts! I can't get enough of his laugh.
My little squirmy worm. Ben just doesn't stop moving. Maybe he has ADD? I definately need to get in shape to keep up with him.
More cute pics coming next week. Or when I get a chance to post again.
