What’s 4 more!?!

A few months ago I was talking to Suz and she was telling me they were getting to go see their Bff’s in Cali. I volunteered to watch the quads while they were gone. However, It took some convincing, she had this crazy idea that it might be hard to have 6 kids under one roof…ha!

We always have a great time over at the Steece household and this was was no different! Madelyn and Kinley LOVE the quads and totally look up to them, the girls were great the entire weekend.M and K have been having some issues with being 2 lately and it was so nice for them to just play!

Little Benny! love this boy!

IMG_1482Sav and Kinley: peas in a pod!!!! We joke that Kinley is a little Sav. The girls are a lot alike and are two strong willed little girls but I LOVE watching their little relationship unfold. MAJOR DIVAS!!!!! I have an idea they will be the best of friends but fight the good fight every once in a while!

Drew…Could these boys be any cuter?!? All three melt my heart!

IMG_1494 For someone that is completely happy having two girls and wanted girls from the beginning. It sure was nice having boys around to play with. They can be so cuddly and are somewhat more drama free, most of the the time!

But for now the Steece boys and Carter will work for my boy fix!

We went to the pool one day but the water was pretty cold so we spent more time eating our lunch poolside!

We let the girls have a slumber party with Sav.

The three of them did AMAZING! (the girls are in the peapods)

IMG_1580We were brave and took them all to church! We were actually early…took a mini van and a Tahoe but we got there.

This picture CRACKS me up…you can see all their little personalities

The last day we were there a pretty big storm came…I thought for a while we were going to have to pile all 6 kids in a closet…Wow, wouldn’t that have been fun?!? While we were waiting to see if we were going to get in the closet I got them all to come downstairs to watch a movie. IMG_1676 We had a WONDERFUL time…was it a lot of kids…yes but honestly we had a wonderful time. We would totally do it again. My girls have a BLAST playing with all four of them, and having slumber parties with Sav. In Fact Suz kept our girls right before this weekend and let all the girls sleep in the same room too, although I think they stayed up a little later playing and chatting! I love getting to see them all play together.

You seriously are super Momma! Any idea where to get one of those water hoses? My girls are afraid of the sprinkler but love to play in the hose. I think they might love it. But I don't know what it's called and have never seen one in the stores around here! Thanks!
