Last week my friend Jen, her triplets & their big sister came to spend a few days with us. I was beyond excited to see Jen & her kiddos. The boys were absolutely thrilled to have a house full of friends for a few days!!!
The day they arrived the kids played, swam, & played some more. It was like they play together everyday, although we hadn't seen each other in a year. Everyone got along really well, some too well, lol...
Garren, Makayla, Marley, Caden, Marissa, Jack & Kellan

Popsicles in the pool, the boys all had to taste Makayla's
I thought getting 3 kids to the table for dinner was a challenge, lol

The next day we headed to the beach. Everyone had so much fun playing in the waves & the sand.

The following day we took it easy around the house in the morning & then headed to the boys favorite restaurant so they could show their friends the Pirate Ship. After we ate & everyone played a while we took a little walk through the historic downtown area & to the marina.

Makayla & Garren AGAIN!
Checking out the boats
Donna thought she could escape the chaos, LOL!!!
The whole gang, Marissa, Makayla, Jack, Garren, Marley, Kellan, Jen, Caden & even Haddie
Saying goodbye was hard for all of us, we enjoyed the company & catching up. Also seeing all our munchkins together. I know I've mentioned it before but Jen & I met online when we were both pregnant with our trios. We had our babies just 18 days apart. We spent many a sleepless night chatting on fb while feeding one baby after the other. We kept each other sane, knowing that we weren't alone in having triplet infants.
Kellan & Makayla giving hugs & kisses
Our visit was so fun & seeing the boys' personalities come out with others is always a treat. Garren & Makayla's infatuation with each other was a little shocking, lol... but Kellan surprised me too when he announced to Marley "I have a kiss for you!" Marley resisted but Kellan finally caught her with her guard down in the pool & planted one on her, lol... Caden talked more to his friends this week than I think I have ever seen him talk before.
I can't wait until we can all get together again!!!
