Road Trip to Louisville


Last week Tari and I loaded our three toddlers into a minivan for a two-day trip to Louisville, Ky to visit our dear friend and former co-worker Maria, her son, Vincent, and her baby-to-be (who is now here!) Nolan.

Sophie not sharing

(Sophie was so good about sharing toys but God forbid anyone sit in one of Vincent’s child-size chairs. She guarded them always and if she was sitting in one and someone else sat in another she would jump up and push—push!—them off. I hope, after two days of her doing this—and getting in trouble for this—she’ll be better about it in the future.)


Getting a mama and twins to all sit and smile at the same time is not easy.


Vincent had a ton of toys for the girls to play with.


Raiding the snack cabinet


I believe Vincent had a superhero-like name for this outfit. Sadly I forget what it was.


Homeward bound: The girls slept until the last 15 minutes or so. Then Whitney and Lauren started crying, followed by Sophie saying “Babies!” sob. “Babies!” sob. “Babies!” sob.

But all in all I think all the kids had a great time with each other—and I had a great time visiting Tari and Maria, too. Maria, thanks again for having us!
