Mackenzie Trails

We have had a busy long weekend so far.  We attended the second annual Sinclair Summer Sizzler (I will post pictures soon), and then tonight we went to Mackenzie Trails for a picnic supper.

Nater tot eating his supper...he stuffed this entire piece in his mouth at once!

Lukey Cat

Satsuki and Miyu.  Miyu is our Japenese exchange student that is here for two weeks, and Satsuki is one of her friends!
I got all three of them in one shot!!!  hahaha Now I will work at getting them all focused in one shot!

Matty Bear

Grandpa and his boys.

All step, have them looking! ha
 Matthew was a dipping MACHINE...everything he ate tonight was dipped in ranch...EVERYTHING!

And they spent most of the night covered in cheeto cheese!

Down at the water (where my lens cap now resides!)

one of the fellas...any guesses?

Our three little fellas!  Love them to pieces!

Throwing in rocks!  Who doesn't love to throw rocks into the water!

Lucas checking things out!

and doing a little dance!

We ended up back at the park...where the boys felt they needed to sweep, their father would be proud!

Sweeping the sand...just like trying to clean up after almost two year old triplets while they are still awake! I fell your pain Matty!

Servin up som supper!

I can't think of a better way to spend a Sunday summer night!

Daddy and His boys

Our Holidays?!?!?

On Thursday morning we woke the fellas up at 4:55am (after about an hour and a half of sleep for John and I) and were on the road by 5:00.  We were heading down to Whitefish with some wonderful friends of ours...we had been excited for weeks!
Here are the fellas ready to head out!

 The drive had been going really well.  We decided to stop in Sparwood for a little bit of a run around and visit the biggest truck in the world!

The boys in one of the wheels.

Me and my 4 boys!

Running under the truck...I think they look super similar in this picture!

Running to hug Daddy

The Super cute Roys

We loaded the boys back up and drove the rest of the way.  They got a little fussy towards the end but we would consider it a good drive down.

That's when things turned right around...for the worse.  The boys were the fussiest they have EVER been, like seriously EVER...and all three of them.  We could not keep them happy no matter what we tried.  We went and got groceries...the boys fussed the ENTIRE time.  They did calm down for about ten minutes when we let them play in the front seat of the vehicle..but then turned the attitude up ten times when we put them back in their carseats.  When we got back to the campground we went to the petting zoo, which the boys LOVED, but when we put them back in the wagon to head back they FLIPPED, they were throwing absolute fits, and one of them even flipped himself out of the belt, and almost got right out of the wagon.  We tried to entertain the boys in the trailer, but we were unsuccessful. 

It was now about 6:00 (about 4.5 hours after we had arrived) and we decided to load them up and head home.  It may sound like we gave up too soon, but we just didn't see this situation turning itself around.  We were beyond disappointed to not be able to spend our weekend with the Roys, but we knew this was what we had to do. 

Good news - they gave us back all our money
Bad news -  The drive home was BRUTAL.  The boys barely slept, and it felt like even when they were asleep they were whining.  (and we in no way blame the boys for being fussy for the car ride home...if it were socially acceptable I am sure John and I would have been doing the same).
Good news - they let us bring our beer back over the border duty free even though we were not even in the states long enough to have a liquor exemption.
Bad news - the drive home was longer than expected due to construction (which as far as we could see was not even happening)
Good news - we got home at about 1:00, the boys fell fast asleep the second they were in their beds and didn't wake up until 10:00 am, then napped from 12:00-4:00, and still went to bed at 7:00 and fell asleep within minutes.  I pretty much slept the exact same times as they did :)

We know that we made the right choice in coming home but are missing our time with the Roys :(  The boys are just at a tough age right now.  The campground would be AWESOME for kids...just not for triplet toddlers!  I can see us going back when the boys are older.

Here is one last picture...this was Matty on part of the drive home, he wrapped himself right up in his blanket!

Sprinkler Fun!

So we have now had 2 nice days in a row...I could get used to this!  Yesterday we went to discovery canyon and the boys LOVED it!  WAY better than last year!  And today after the boys woke up from their nap we had some friends over and set up the sprinkler...they couldn't get enough!

The only picture I have with all three of the boys in it!

I think this was the only time that Venice went through...she was not a fan!

Matthew and Nathan making a plan

Nater running, running, running! (and Lucas giving me a dirty look! ha)

Future football player...


Nathan LOVED running through the sprinkler, seriously he could not get enough!

Matthew having some fun!


Giselle not quite sure about it...she did warm-up to it after awhile though!

Nathan James

Luc ended up stepping into some mud and did not like it AT ALL!  It took him quite awhile to get back into it after that!

My Matthew

Baby down!

Matty Bear

Happy Nathan

Lucas and another one of his "looks"

Carwash time!

Hopefully it is nice enough out again tomorrow to do it all over!

The Lights of my Life!

No matter how rough of a day I am having, all I have to do is look at these three little faces that I love more than anything in the entire world, and everything is right again.  LOVE YOU THREE!!!
