Our next adventure

So, we all ventured out to Wal-Mart today. Shane had 2 of the boys in the double stroller, and I had the other with me in a cart. We split up when we got there so that Shane could exchange some formula while I grabbed a few things. We were feeling adventurous, but we didn't want to make a whole day of it or anything. We just wanted to get what we needed and get out. You know, just to try it out.....

We got a lot of looks from everyone, but we were practically running through the store. So, no time to sit and make conversation or anything. The few people that were around us long enough to get a sentence out kept saying, "Is that 3 babies?" I wanted to say, "No, people it's 5!" You know, just to get a good laugh. I felt like Bill Engvall....."here's your sign."

We did meet a worker at Wal-Mart that had twin boys that were born 4 months early and in the NICU for 4 months. Both of them had to have a couple of surgeries. Don't worry, they are doing great now - 16 months old according to their proud Father......Boy, my family sure has been fortunate!

I. Can't. Even. Imagine.

Is there some sort of award for people who handle crazy circumstances with amazing agility and humor. Cause if there is, you two totally deserve it.

P.S. Be sure to read the link on my blog from today...oh, forget it...here it is:

I saw your comment on my blog for the giveaway.

I am a sucker for babies. I could eat them up I love them so much. So when I saw your photo on the blog I decided to see if you like actually had three babies, or if you just liked that picture...

And you REALLY have triplet boys! In case you had forgotten.

But really, congratulations. They are very handsome. I imagine that you and your hubby are so tired, and yet so happy!

OH, and you're my hero. I can't stand to take myself to Wal-mart. But to take three babies? That is COURAGE!
