Zoo day hooray 1 2 3 how many animals will we see?



I have read that book one too many times. The funniest part is that I know all the words to it without needing the book.
My friend Kristen took us to the Zoo on her membership. The girls loved it especially the petting zoo part. Trista was quite fond of the goats. Dad you would be proud. She just "talked" and "talked" to the goats and followed them around. Sadie- not so much! They loved the kids play zone and I loved getting out of the house.



We were all suppose to drive down to the Nashville Zoo together until I forgot to tell Chris to leave me the car that day. The joys of sharing a vehicle. So I called my friend to tell her we would have to pass on the zoo offer. Within 10 minutes she called me back and had found not one but TWO car seats to borrow from friends, picked us up and brought us home. What an awesome friend.

Egg Saladless Hunt


As you can tell our little Miss Sadie had had
enough before we even got started.


I think the good ole days of dyeing the eggs and having an abundance of egg salad to eat on for a week are over. We sure had good food to eat and an abundance of eggs filled with candy at the Carters though. Thank you guys. I think next year is going to be the year. They will love finding the eggs and filling their baskets.

Don't ya just love that summer breeze


Not a care in the world, just sittin and eatin some yogurt(Trista)

One year has come and gone and...

Chad Hicks came to visit and the girls loved him. Of course he has practice with Quad nieces and nephew so this was a cinch.


One year has come and I'm now being told by all those empathetical moms of multiples that around 3 or 4years is when it really gets easier!!!!
I told Chris that I feel like I'm still in survival mode sometimes. Its a constant 12 hour day of clean up, pick up and wipe up!
They are each getting their own personality and I love watching that.
My neighbor and I planted a big garden for the summer that consists of squash,zucchini,baby corn,tomatoes, peppers, onions and cucumbers. All sounds good huh? Well Chris and I will be enjoying them the most since the girls aren't so fond of them. I am still sneaking veggies in their food(especially Sadie) I know it will change because as soon as they understand I'm going to pull the "parent" trick and make them sit there till they have had at least a few bites:)I'm such a mean mom.
Now fruit is a different story.
