We had a lot of fun on our Valentine's Day this year. In the morning, Dave and I packed up the kids and took them to the Winter Party thrown by the Mothers of Multiples Club that I belong to. It was at a local indoor sports center and it was great! There were 19 sets of twins, 1 set of triplets, and lots of siblings at the party, so it was very cute. Mairead LOVED it. There was a ton of open space to run, and she definitely needs that since we have been cooped up inside so much.
The boys did have fun, but at first they were VERY unhappy. The turf was that artificial grass, and they did NOT like the feel of it.
You can see that Jack wouldn't let his hands touch it at all, and Ben was skeptical about it, too. It took probably 25 minutes for them to try crawling.
Ben did like pulling up and seeing the other baby in the plexiglass that surrounded the field.
Mairead had fun climbing through the tunnels, running around, and throwing a beach ball to Daddy.
When we came home, Mairead helped me to make some Valentine's cupcakes. She took her job very seriously and stirred some batter for about 20 minutes.
All that work was well worth it when the cupcakes were ready to eat!
Jack was happy to sample the cupcakes.
And, of course, Ben was happy to eat whatever was in front of him.
As if that weren't enough Valentine's Day fun, the next day, we received a special package from Grandma and Grandpa. Mairead loved the princess puzzle and the coloring books. She spent a long time fitting the pieces together.
