Mother's Day 2011

I was excited when my brother invited us to his place for Mother's Day. Although my mom, sister and I still ended up doing the cooking - it was nice not to have to worry about cleaning my house for guests! Kudos to Nate for thinking of inviting us!!!

It was the first time that my kids had been to his apartment, and the first time they met his cat (Dischord). They loved him, and were on the hunt for him the entire visit! (I am NOT a cat person, so they have had very little interaction with cats - and it showed!)
I love this picture of Quin and Nate - and she just loves him!!! She was beyond excited when she found out we were going to his place for Mother's Day!

We brought along a few of our riding toys to help keep the kids entertained. Easton showed Lincoln how to use the battery-powered 4 wheeler (it goes very slowly).

Lincoln learned quickly! Feet up, doing stunts ;)

We had a lot of fun trying out our new ginourmous bubble maker!

I couldn't believe that all four kids stayed still long enough for me to get them in the same picture - yay!

And... they even waited for Lincoln to join in the picture fun!

Ellery and Gianna also had a great time digging in the 'flower' beds. I was excited to see them get their hands dirty! Maybe they will be big helpers in the garden this summer (I can always wish, right?!?!)

A big thank you to Nate for having us over! It was so nice to be able to spend the day with my amazing mom and sister (along with the rest of our family)!

Great photos! I found your blog from another blog I follow. I am now following your blog too. You see, I am an identical twin myself. I will enjoy reading what you write about your twins, as well as what your thoughts are as the mother of twins. I hope you will follow me back
