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!

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?.....

She loves water too!
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.
Here's to another year of loving all of you!~
