Midnight Sun Festival

We took the kids to the Midnight Sun Festival this year. Last year I was laying in the ICU dying of heart failure so we were unable to make it. The kids had a great time.

The boys did the obstacle course twice, by themselves. There getting so big, growing out of the toddler stage :(

The Park and the Ducks

Gasp!.....You take all of them to the park by yourself?! LOL, people make me laugh sometimes, okay most of the time. I had a German tourist stop and ask if he could take a picture of my lucky charms and then proceeded to ask me how I felt about Obama and how Italy and Iran want to kill him.....HUH? what does that have to do with my children? Anywho, that was a first experience with the paparazzi. What made it even better was the fact that nothing in the park opened until noon, leaving us as the only attraction for the tourist....and there were quite a few of them. The Carousal operator was dumbfounded that I was able to carry triplets, I mean he just couldn't get over the fact that "I was just so small"....especially compared to his wife who was 6 '1 and couldn't even tell she was pregnant. Ah, of course not! Being 6'1 and carrying 1 child would be nothing like 5'1 and carry 3!....Back on track here, the kids all had a great time and are now asking everyday to ride the horses again!

Fast Boats & Beautiful Motorcycles

The best entertainment is free!

We took the kids to the Yukon 800 races, which of course, what kid doesn't love watching fast boats go by, so it was a big hit. A little FYI about the races-(The Yukon 800 Mile Marathon, the grandfather of Alaska’s contemporary endurance races dating back 47 years, is a 2-day high speed riverboat race. Run on the Tanana and Yukon Rivers, traveling through hundreds of miles of vast Alaskan wilderness. It is billed as the longest, roughest and toughest speed boat race in the world.
Competitors live in Fairbanks and communities along the rivers, where they build the low-slung 24 foot long boats from scratch. These race boats are powered with 50 horsepower regulation engines that can reach speeds in excess of 70 miles per hour.
The Yukon 800 begins in Fairbanks in late June, around the time of summer solstice, and finishes after 800 grueling miles the next day back in Fairbanks.)

We also took them to the Harley Rally, where there were tons of Motorcycles and free food. They loved it all, and best of all were well behaved. Could two parents have asked for more? Free food, Free entertainment and well behaved children.....were livin the dream.....okay, maybe just our dream ;)

Did you know drooling for men continues well beyond infancy?.....

I don't think I have ever been to this many BBQ's in one summer, and it's not even 1/2 way over yet! It's been fun though! I just loved the corn pics, so I thought I'd share.....
Brycee, he makes this face a lot when he's getting into something!
"I'll take that one too"
"If he touches my corn again, I'm gunna drink his milk!"
"he, he, he"

First to Walk

So Camy boy was the first to walk. He took his first steps about a month ago and has been working on it ever since. He of course looks like a baby drunk, but he tries his best! Alina is taking second place and took her first steps today actually. She is much more stable than the other two though, it's just the confidence she is lacking. So as soon as she gains that she is gonna take off runnin! Bryce on the other hand just doesn't care. He is quite content crawling fast or cruising, so we'll see when he gets to it.

~1 year~

The moment they were born. I'll never forget it!~
They were too small for their car seats. It was nerve racking taking them out so we pretty much only took them to appointments for the first 6 weeks! This was thier first outing to the Knotty shop for Ice Cream~
They spent a good amount of the first few months sleeping on these couches and in their swings~
This was our first picture together as a family! The news miner did an article on us....

~Alina Angelica~

My sweet baby doll was born first, weighing 4 lbs 14 oz and was 17 3/4 in tall. She looked like a typical newborn, just a smaller version of one. She came out screaming at the top of her lungs! Funny thing is now, the ONLY time she cries is if she got hurt physically of if one of the boys have hurt her feelings. She's very sweet, cuddly and easy going....probably the happiest baby I've ever seen, besides Bryce ;)! Every time I pick her up she lays her head on my shoulder and cuddles with me. She was the first to crawl and if I am bent down will still come over, pull up and lay her head on my back and sigh.

I always wanted a dark haired, dark skinned, brown eyed, tiny little girl, and I got this blue eyed, blond haired, fair skinned Angel instead!
Lovin the brownies~

She loves water too!
~Bryce Miguel~

My sweet sweet Brycee baby was born second, weighing 4 lbs 8 oz and was 17 3/4 in long. He had the most breathing problems compared to his siblings and required c-pap for the first 5 days. This picture is actually the day he was taken off it. He is the most sweet spirited little man I have ever met. I remember the day I walked in to the NICU and saw him for the first time. I said " There is something very serene about him" and the NICU Nurse told me she sensed it too. In this pic you see how skinny he was, but also just how big he is going to one day be by the size of his hands! He just needed a little more time to grow! He is always curiously happy and easily amused. He was the first to clap, wave and sign. He has Brown hair, my hazel eyes and his daddy's dark skin.

The "Brownie Monster"~
Tired out~
~Camron Miguel~

My little Cam Cam was born weighing 3 lbs 7 oz and was 16 in tall....a little bigger than a ruler. He was the first one I got to hold in the was awesome! He was my little tiny baby doll. He had the typical preemie look, which took him months to grow out of. He came home weighing 3 lbs 11 oz.....not even 4 lbs! But the Dr.s said since he was doing so well, they didn't want to keep him because of his minimal weight. He is such a sweetheart. He gives the cutest looks by scrunchin up his nose, like "I'm so cute". He has beautiful "smiley eyes" according to his Grandma Jen, blond hair and is still the smallest of the 3. He is the first to walk and dance and has an unlimited amount of energy and passion for life!
Starting the party off early with a little crab dip!~
"Could someone please get a spoon and feed me?"
We had 3 pools for the party and all the kids just loved it. It turned out to be the most beautiful day of the week!
Happy 1st Birthday my sweet sweet babies!~
Here's to another year of loving all of you!~
