Ok, the big news of the day is that we've got four carseats in our van. Come on, how cute is that? We piled everyone in to visit Gilroy Gardens today and then squeezed as much fun as possible into our visit. Does this face scream "watch out world here I come" or what? It's Ree, of course. Not sure how much popcorn they all consumed, but it somewhat hampered our lunch efforts. S2 (left) and H2 (right) are as strong as Ro (left) and Ree (right), and this move never fails to crack me up: There might even have been more swinging than popcorn. (And does anyone else snicker a little to see TubaDad with pink cup and pink sunglasses peeking out of his backpack and D2 with the kid zoo backpack? Heh.) They were all so supportive of each other during the facepainting. The resulting faces were dang adorable! Ro and Ree asked the artists to make their faces "all pink, just pink," which confounded them a little. I gave them the go-ahead to add a few embellishments. (H2 left, S2, Ree, Ro) I would have taken more and better pics, but guess what I didn't do before the visit? Yeah. Nice. The low battery light started blinking on my first photo, and I lost flash powers almost instantly and then babied the camera along for a few more pics. Sigh... My only consolation was that (as you can see from this photo) D2 had the same problem. And we call ourselves photographers! The rest of the pics (the few I did manage to take) are here. Tonight K2 & D2 and TubaDad and I are going out for a grownup dinner (whooo!) and Wela and BobBob are double twinsitting. Wow. They are tough and brave. Wish them luck!
