Sunday Cell Phone Pics

Just some cute pics of my cute kids...
The kids' cousin Kate is in the quads' preschool class with them.  The kids love seeing Kate so often, and they also love getting to see their younger cousin Ellie at each drop-off and pick-up.
Here are Paige and Julie walking down the hall, holding hands with Ellie one day at pick-up.
Seriously, how cute are they?

We were heading outside to play recently, when Izzie stopped to grab the kids' Woody doll.  She wanted to swing with him!  She put him on a swing and gave him a push.  She hopped on the glider next to him, but each time Woody's swing slowed down, she would stop and give him another push.

 It was seriously adorable.

I love this pic of Julia leaving dance class the other day.

She has her hoodie on, her dance bag over her shoulder, she's wearing sunglasses and a strand of plastic beads and she's eating her sucker the teacher gave them.  Is she the coolest kid you know, or what?

King's Island 2012

A couple of weeks ago, Rod's company spent the day at King's Island.  We took the kids and had a great time!  The quads are really getting to the age where they can enjoy the rides and attractions.  Will is getting so big-- he actually rode some big rides outside of the kiddie-land!  We had so much fun that Rod and I have actually talked about possibly getting season passes next year.
When we first got there, we met up with Rod's family to watch a Halloween-themed musical show.  I wasn't sure what the kids would think, but they really enjoyed it and sat still, watching the entire show.

Heaven help me.  My little ladies man Drew mostly like the back-up dancers.  He was in my lap and several times during the show, he pointed to one of the dancers and said, "That one's my favorite."  Yeah, in about 10 years, I'll be searching for a monastery...

Here is some proof of just how big my kids are--
 The quads went on their first roller coaster!

Yes, it was a small kid's coaster, but they rode it and loved it!
 They were even brave and put their hands up!

Then we went and got lunch.  After lunch--  Face Painting!  The kids saw several kids with their faces painted and wanted to get theirs done.  After waiting in line for a million years, I even got talked into getting mine done.  Sadly, Will didn't want his done :-(
 Drew, Izzie, Paige, Julia and Mommy

Everyone got together for one last ride

While I often feel a bit sad and sentimental watching my little babies grow into big kids, days like this one are reminders of how much fun we get to have with our big kids!
