Catching Up, as Usual!

5 events and 4 houseguests later and Hey! I'm back!
AND 20 days after the event, here is how we spent our 4th of July!
We colored on the front porch with our super-cool sidewalk chalk!

Then we ran around in the front yard for awhile. It was a nice change from running around in the back yard.

We watched for Daddy's truck to come around the corner and practiced running to Mom (aka away from the street) if we saw a car coming. It was very cute! I would point at the imaginary car coming down the road and shout, "Look! A car! A car!" and they would all come running to me. Priceless!

That afternoon we were introduced to sparklers. Zachary would have nothing to do with them, but the other three held theirs with various degrees of courage.




And lastly we posed for a great picture in front of the crowning beauty of my very neglected flowerbeds, my beautiful hydrangea bush!

Reagan, Jonathan, Zachary, Thomas
Happy Belated Independence Day!

You have a sweet bunch there. Congrats. When/if you get a few spare minutes, I invite you to check out this short video -- -- about the “aha moment” of the father of quadruplets and how it changed his outlook on life. You'll relate, I'm sure. And I hope you’ll also check out the rest of the site, which was created by Mutual of Omaha to highlight inspirational stories, good works, and “aha moments” of all kinds.
