You don’t see that everyday

We often hear that statement when we take the boys out on errands, but whenever I hear it I can’t help but think “I see it everyday.” However here’s something you really don’t see everyday:

 

Eleven triplet families in one place. Friday evening we went to a family picnic with a Utah triplet group. It was really nice to talk to other parents. With triplets ranging from 5 months (ours, youngest by 3 days) to 9 years old we got an interesting glimpse into our future.

We also saw our first choo choo wagon, something we’ve been trying to buy all year. After seeing one in person now we are sure we want one, but since they are discontinued they are very hard to find and people are selling them for a lot more than they were brand new.  Hopefully we’ll find one at a reasonable price by the time they are ready for it.

Another bonus of all the triplet families together is no one stared at us for having three car seats or a triple stroller. For once we were not the traveling circus; we were just another one of the families.

Unfortunately, however, the weather didn’t cooperate.  The wind kicked up right as everyone started arriving, and it was very windy the whole time and eventually started raining.  The wind really upset Nick and Parker (Andrew fell asleep), so Cody wasn’t able to take many photos as he had planned. The next gathering planned is going to be a moms only outing. I suggested we make it an all day mother’s retreat, but I think we’ll just get together for a dinner.
