Play date with the Davis'

On March 15th, we went to my dear friend Leah's house for a play date with her cute kids. Leah has two sets of twins--all born naturally!! She has one year-old boys and four year-old girls. The kids had a great time playing in their beautiful backyard and enjoying the Davis' toys. It's so great to have a friend who totally gets the craziness and joys of raising multiples. I love Leah so much and I am so grateful for her friendship. These are some pictures of the kids having a picnic lunch outside in the Davis' yard.

Fun in the Backyard

The kids' new favorite thing to do in the backyard is to push each other around in their Cozy Coupe. It's so cute to see them really enjoying each other and being able to play together happily. These pictures were taken on Easter, April 4th.

Grandpa and Grandma West came to visit from California

It was such a great weekend because my parents came out to visit us from California. They are such wonderful people and I feel so blessed to be their daughter. They look so incredible for their age also. If you can believe it from the below pictures--my dad is 81 and my mom is 74. They are such amazing grandparents to my kids. My parents have 41 grand kids and 10 children and it always overwhelms me to think of how they did that as I struggle to be a good parent to my four. They are very special people and I love them so much. It amazes me how well my kids remembered them for not seeing them since Christmas. They remembered them right away as grandma and grandpa and freely gave them hugs and kisses. Friday night my parents took me and Jeremiah and Jeannine and John out to dinner at Texas Roadhouse to celebrate Jeremiah's birthday which is coming up very soon. It was such a fun night and we always enjoy it when my parents come in town. Before they drove back to California on Saturday they came by to say good-bye and I captured some great shots of them with my kids.

My mom with my kids--isn't she beautiful?! My mom is my shining example. I hope to be the kind of person she is one day. I love her so much!

My dad with my kids--I love my dad so much. He is such a kind, loving, cheerful and patient man! People always tell me that I look a lot like him. What a compliment because he is so handsome!

Freestone Park again, but with Daddy

On Saturday March 6th, Jeremiah and I took the kids to Freestone Park to ride on the cute little train they have there, play on the playground, watch the ducks and have a picnic. It's so rare to have Jeremiah home on a Saturday morning, so since he was, we took advantage of doing something fun with the kids. Jeremiah has been working so hard lately including Saturdays on all of the home he's flipping. I appreciate all the long hours he's putting in to provide for our family, but it's sure nice to have him around! We had a wonderful time and the kids had a blast! The weather right now is just perfect. You've got to love springtime in Arizona.
Weston, Brynlee and Cambria had fun climbing on the little coin-operated carousel.

Cambria and Brynlee

Their little faces looked so cute as they rode on a carousel for the first time.



Weston enjoyed "driving" this old Chevy with Addison on the hood.

Look at Brynlee's happy face! I just love her little dimples!

Addison was having the time of his life!

Isn't Addison just the most handsome little boy?! He loves to swing.

Cambria enjoying the swing.

Daddy with Addison
What handsome boys!

The kids are getting so big. They're learning to climb up ladders and chains to get up on play structures. It amazes me how fast time has flown by. They're almost 3!
