10 sets of triplets!

We had a full day planned today. We were out the door this morning at 10:30 and didn't get home until almost 9pm. Whew.

First up was our triplet groups get together! Our friend hosted at her house, the kids had a great time playing with her boys toys and all the other kids.
The potluck BBQ was yummy!
We brought the Banana Split pie I made before...huge hit :)
Everyone played so well together, 35+ kids and no fighting or arguing, wow!
There were 10 sets of triplets there, this is a pic of 9 of the 10. Age range was 6 months to 4 or 5. It took a few minutes to get so many kids to cooperate for a picture LOL.

Al Bundy Jr. This boy and his junk ugh. Hahaha!

Xan man had so much fun playing with other boys his age. I was glad to see he was just as rough and tough as they were and vice versa. No injuries or crying foul, someone got knocked down or bonked in the head a little hard they just laughed and got back up to play some more.

As much as I don't want to deal with a sandbox, my kids did really love playing in it all afternoon.

Jericho had a lot of fun playing with the other little ones there.
Such a fun BBQ...looking forward to getting together again!
After we left the triplet party, we headed over for another BBQ. This one was for all the people that made up the jury I was on. We all, well 10 of the 12 of us, really did get pretty close over the 8-9 weeks we were stuck together. It was so nice getting to hang out with most of them again.
The kids had a good time, and Jericho made a new friend too :)

Lily and Hayden came home with splinters though. Holding them still while Dad got the splinters out was no fun, poor babies :( I am just glad once they are out you get immediate relief. As soon as we got the splinters out the girls got a bandage and it was time for bed. Lily made us laugh, as we were tucking them in she says "Um Daddy, I can't suck my thumb with the bandage on." Jason asked if she wanted it off....our last hold out on the thumb sucking, still going strong. She then told him"No I think I'll be OK." I am sure she just switched to the other thumb LOL.
