We've had a wonderful June so far; the weather has been very good much of the time, and we've all been getting out in the neighborhood, on local walking trails, and to the stores and restaurants together. The boys are so well behaved that we can pretty much take them anywhere for a couple of hours or so. And whenever we do go out, we inevitably are asked, "Are those triplets?" and told, "You must have your hands full!" Of course we do, but we wouldn't have it any other way. At this point, it' s as hard for us to imagine not having triplets as it is for most people to contemplate their lives with three babies. And the most appropriate phrase, we've found, is that the worst day with the triplets is better than the best day without them. That pretty much sums it up!
That said, we've seen and done so much in the past couple of weeks...here's a few shots!
One day we were sauntering up the driveway on a walk around the neighborhood when we saw a butterfly with injured wings on the concrete with a hungry-looking bird looming over it. We rescued the butterfly and took several pictures with it, and then took it inside and gave it some fruit to eat. It died two days later, but it must have had a feast beforehand.
We're ready to go swimming (yes, you read that right, read on). Note the "Little Mermaid" swim diapers. Mom accidentally got the wrong ones for us, but we're too little to know the difference, thank goodness!
Here's our new pool...it's 30 inches deep, and 12 feet wide. And (for those of you who will worry--you know who you are!) we only take the boys in when both of us are home and we keep a hand on the baby floats at all times, and we slather the boys up with sunscreen beforehand. We're actually quite happy with it. Ty and Alex seem to really like it and kick their legs. Jacen on the other hand doesn't seem really into it.
