3) Spare diaper (see, we DID let Danna wear one!)
Now on to the kids' first Wichita River Festival experience....
I'm sure you can all imagine how lengthy a process it is to wake, feed, burp, wash, diaper, dress and load four infants into a van, and keep your sanity intact all the while. I think it probably actually took longer to get the diaper bags ready! The whole ordeal was made MUCH easier with the help of Aunt Lainie and Grampa Stubby. We made it downtown to the Riverfest on Tuesday around noon for lunch in the foodcourt. Talk about being almost famous! We got to introduce the babies to LOTS of friends and family. It was pretty busy that day and there wasn't a table to be found. We had to get creative trying to eat on our laps in the grass, appease babies and answer questions. We all had a great but exhausting time. We learned alot with this experience and will hopefully work out all the kinks for our next adventure.
Danna ready to take on the world...with a feather in her hair
Little man Laine thinking really hard about what he wants to eat at the Riverfest
Big boy, Pius. Upset because we told him he'd have to share his food.
Forrest couldn't wait to eat, so the monkey bore the brunt of his hunger.

The boys wore these shirts in blue to the Riverfest... 1 of 4, 2 of 4, 3 of 4, 4 of 4. Danna's was still too big for her, so she got to wear a dress. We got these from cousin Erin (EMO) when I was only 15 weeks pregnant and didn't know if baby A, B, C or D was the girl. So, of course, the princess gets to be numero uno!
Happy belated Mothers Day! This was at the end of the day and Laine and Danna were tired, hungry and grumpy (and I was a little frazzled). Just look for the red-faced babies! Despite the chaos, it was WONDEFFUL to be able to partake in the Day's celebration with my little bundles of joy. Jaclyn (Tubre) and Jen (Murray), your Mothers' Day posts reflect my sentiments as well. Beautifully stated.
Momma gave Danna her first pedicure. Little painted piggies are so cute!
In closing, we wanted to let you all know about their upcoming "official" baptisms and open house/pool party. They will get baptized on Sunday, June 8th and the party will be the next Saturday, June 14th. If you would like to come and play, please call, email or post a comment to let us know... we'll send you the details. This will also help us get somewhat of a count in mind. Thanks!
