My kids have been out in public two days in a row...wow! Seriously, it doesn't happen very often. Today we ventured with Grandma Sandy and Grandpa Ron to the Lilac Festival in Rochester for the big parade. We were one adult per child, so it was perfect! The kids had a lot of fun watching the bands, firetrucks, police cars, motorcycles...all their favorites. Then we walked up to the park and had a picnic lunch among the lilacs, just gorgeous! Even Allie had a great time as she spent the day giggling and cooing at everything around her, what a dream she is. I wanted to walk down to the pansy bed to get a picture of the triplets next to the flowers. We took a picture last year and it was one of my favorites. Unfortunately, it started to rain, and we had about a mile to walk back to the car. I got a few quick ones and then we started hustling to get out of the rain.
Of course bringing our choo choo wagon out in public means more attention than you could ever want. People thought we were part of the parade as we walked along the street afterward. I must have heard, "Look at that adorable wagon!" a million times! By far my favorite comment of the day was, "Hey mam, are all of them twins?" Huh? "No, there are three of them, so all of them are triplets!" Wow...
I hope you enjoy some pictures from our day! These are for you mom...we love you "Numma" across the miles!!! (my mom is visiting my sister in Minnesota)
