Splashway Waterpark

With three 2 year olds we didn't make any extravagant summer plans but wanted to get out of the house and do something fun. Yesterday we made a day trip to Splashway Waterpark, its only about an hour drive and its ideal for toddlers and young children. The kids started out slow but quickly figured out how much fun the slides could be. Collin was the only hesitant one, he reluctantly went down each slide once but he enjoyed his time splashing in the water. Bryce and Addison were very independent and would run to the top to go again even cutting in front of older kids and getting away with it!

Just getting our feet wet!

"That was fun"
Collin a little nervous about going down the slide
They climbed these stairs probably 50+ times
Bryce coming out the tunnel, can you see the excitement on his face?
Bryce would stop on the stairs and yell "Momma" to make sure we were watching
Collin content just splashing around in the water
and relaxing with daddy!

That's a lot of two year olds!

Summertime is a great time to catch up with my teacher friends so today we had a playdate with our kids. Just a few years ago I never thought the three of us would have 7 kids! My friend Trisha and I go way back, she and her husband were married the same day as Steven and I, we had a bridal shower together and 4 years later she found out she was pregnant with twins, a month later we found out we were having triplets and had our baby shower together. My friend Jessica and I also go way back as we struggled through fertility issues together, only a month after the triplets were born she was blessed with her little ham Jake. So if you tally that all up that is 6 TWO YEAR OLDS! The three mommies survived and I'm so glad we got a chance to catch up!

Our children may be triplets but they are different in so many ways. An example of this was brought to my attention when they were eating hamburgers the other day.
Collin ate his with two hands like most people would
Addison picked at hers
Bryce ate his layer by layer, first the top bun then the meat patty and then the bottom bun. And he eats everything like he is in a eating contest, shoving in the whole bun and then chewing and swallowing as much as possible. As soon as he gets it all shoveled into his mouth he will ask with a mouth full "more"! I hate to see what our food bill is when they are teenagers.

Celebrating our Freedom

We had a busy weekend celebrating our Freedom. Saturday we made a quick trip to Llano for the Michalewicz Reunion, we had a nice visit with family despite the Texas heat. The kids kept cool most of the time by playing in the water sprinklers. We loaded the kids up around nap time and by the time we got back to Brenham we were refreshed and ready to go again.

Once in Brenham we had another get together with close family friends, this group used to get together every Sunday to play Volleyball, they took summer trips together and their kids grew up together. Now the "kids" are the ones playing volleyball and another generation of kids are growing up together!
Collin attempted to participate in the kid parade

Monday we headed to Chappell Hill for a patriotic parade!
