Well you may think Tricia and I would get our kids together often considering we live 3 minutes from each other and both stay home, but that is not the way it works! While I was pregnant Mason and I would go there, but once Marlee came, then the holidays came, then the illness would come infect the Shanks house one after another, so that was a 2 week ordeal, then Marlee is working on a schedule so we are pretty homebound till that happens, then.... you can see where I'm going! Today the stars aligned and we had 3 healthy Shank's, a napping Marlee and a Mason that was up for having friends over!
They came over after their morning nap and stayed till nap #2. We had a picnic on the floor of the playroom and just shut ourselves in the basement for 2 hours. It was nice. The triplets are so use to playing with each other there is no drama when it comes to playing. Then you have Mason, a very typical selfish 2 year old!! He wanted what they had, and wanted Stella out of "his" chair! Overall though it was a success. Mason would show them toys and really tried to get Ryan over to the tool bench. He came and tried to grab his hand and said, "come on Ryan, I'll show you." Ryan didn't cooperate, but later warmed up and got a big kick out of the drill!
Here are some pictures from our day. None of "the boss!" I didn't have my camera handy the whole time.
Tricia and Marlee... this is Tricia's "I'm so happy this stage is over with" face!
Norah and Ryan
"The Girls" Norah, Marlee and Stella
The Shankslet's were very curious about baby Marlee. It seems like just yesterday this was Mason checking out 3 little babies!!
Thanks for making the trip today Tricia, I know it's hard to get 3 bundled and in the car, but it sure was nice for a change!
See you soon!
