Beach Day

We got our minivan even more full today when all 6 of us piled in and traveled to see Grandma and Grandpa at their cottage on Sunset Bay. So, it takes about 1 1/2 hours to get there and the kids did great for the first hour. But the last 30 minutes involved a lot of one kid reaCHing over to the kid next to them. It sounded something like this:
Cara: "ehhhhh!"
Brady: "mommy????"
Eli: "NO NO CARA!"
Cara: "ehhhhhh! (followed by several minutes of crying and pouting)
Daddy: I can pull this car over you know! (ha!!!!)

I once heard of a triplet mom who put sheets of foam board in between the seats to separate the kids from each other....hmmmm....

The kids loved being at the lake. We were only there from about 11-2 but that was just enough for all of us:) As always, Allie was the best baby ever. She had a great time sitting in the shade with mommy watching Eli, Cara, and Brady explore. And yes, our hero did a lot of walking, even though the ground was unsteady and the sand was difficult to navigate!

I'm excited to share with you that our friend Laura (remember our great photographer) is raising money in honor of Brady to support Golisano Children's Hospital at Strong. They have an annual walk to raise money every year at the end of May. She has from now until May 30th to meet her goal of $1,000. Strong Hospital has played a very important role in our family! The triplets were born there and spent two weeks in the NICU and received fantastic care. Of course Brady has been inpatient there several times and had his first emergency surgery there. We are going to start off the giving and make a donation in honor of Brady and all of the wonderful people who have given so generously to our family in the last 4 months.
