a fun birthday

My birthday was the beginning of this month. It's always fun to see how things change. Dr's appts, groceries, time outs, diapers and picking up . . .it's all still there. And yet I told Ryan at one point throughout the day I had to stop and think, "how perfect of an extraordinary . . .ordinary day."

I think it's what I love about this shot. I'm rolled out of bed, not a girl is looking at the camera (or sitting still for that matter). . .but it's my life. I wouldn't trade it for the world.
And what better way to wake up then 3 perfectly snuggly little girls.
(well when they woke me up they were . . .I think we've moved past snuggling in this shot) : )
That evening, we met Ryan's family at a local park for a picnic and to play (see how things change?!). It was such a relaxing night and the the girls had lots of fun.
The downside?
2 babies, 2 baby swings and needing to share.
Kate was not pleased with the arrangement.

Olivia playing with Aunt Tara

While it's a little dark, I think I'll title this one:
How many Gpa's/Gma's, Aunt/Uncles & Daddy does it take to help one baby down the slide.

Ava having fun on the slide

What can I say, you all know her father. : )

Kate doesn't seem to think anything is wrong with this picture

Olivia shows her how it's really done.

Much better.

Hanging out with Uncle David.

What'cha doing?

Ava thinks she needs to check it out.

I kind of like this guy. : )

Thanks for a fun and relaxing evening/day. Until the next one . . .
