It's good to be home!

Hi everyone. We have been getting settled back in after our long stay in Dexter (Wednesday-Sunday..thanks Grandma Barb!) It sure is nice to be back sleeping in our own beds. We kept waking up really early at Grandma Barbs and Bubba's which was no fun for us or grandma. Sorry about that Grandma! Here's some pictures of the fun we had with our family in Dexter.

While we were gone here's what mom did (no fun pictures, just a boring list)
1. Got all 3 of our scrapbooks up to date
2. Wandered around numerous stores because she could
3. Went to 2 happy hours in 1 night
4. Slept in 2 days
5. Managed a used clothing and equipment sale that brought in $42,000
6. Had a ton of fun with lots of other moms with multiples
7. Cleaned UNDER the couches
8. Cleaned out our closet

That's quite the list, but we think we had more fun. Can someone tell us what happy hour is? Sounds fun! Thanks Grandma Barb, Grandpa Bubba, Stacy, Hannah, Ethan, and Cameron for all the fun!! We can't wait to do it again in April (and we think mom already started her list of things to do while we are gone)!

Apples, apples, and more apples

Hello it's Eli here to tell you about the fun we had at apple orchard on Saturday. Here were are at the orchard:
We ate LOTS of apples, they were all over the place. The best part, when you were done you just threw them on the ground. If we did that at home we would get in BIG trouble!

Me on apple number 2

Morgan on apple 3
Addison on her first apple
Total apple count:

This orchard (Applewood Orchard in Lakeville) was PERFECT for us. It was small enough that we could just run all over. Lots of other kids who were twins and triplets were there too. Oh yeah, they also had raspberries. Mom gave us a container to put ours in, but we just ate them.

Raspberry count-WHO KNOWS!

Here's what Morgan and looked like after an hour of "picking"

So we ate a little dirt with our apples and big deal! We brought LOTS of apples home with us and love eating them. We hope we can back to that place again. Happy fall everyone!

Our new wheels

Well it was time....

This one pushes so much nicer, maybe I'll take up jogging:)

Camping Fun

Morgan here to tell you what we did this weekend. We went camping with Grandma Barb and Grandpa Bubba. That's me with an orange julius mustache. YUM!

We lounged.

We sat by the fire.
We went on walks.

We blew bubbles (we can do it all by ourselves now!)

We were really tired by Sunday, but had lots of fun. Thanks Grandma Barb and Grandpa Bubba for letting us invade your camper!

Thoughts for Brynlee..

Hello everyone. Many of you know Gretchen and know Brynlee's story, but I felt the need the post. As a mom of 3 preemies I know how scary it can be. Always wondering: Are they breathing? Are they cold? Did they eat enough? You never know what is coming and what happened to Brynlee on Sunday is a perfect example of this. Please keep your thoughts with Gretchen, Brynlee, Rylan, and Brian as Brynlee gets stronger, healthier and home as soon as possible!!! Also, hug your kids extra tight, you never know what could happen. Check out Brynlee's caring bridge site using the link at the right side of the page.
