Here's a few cute pics of the kids from the past couple weeks.
Some afternoon movie time after yet another visit to the doc for ear infections, hopefully to be resolved tomorrow! Excuse the messiness of the house.
The boys before a zoo trip
The boys happy as can be and Miss 'Tude on the left. Stubborn as a mule, and enough attitude for all four children. It's a good thing she's cute!

My new deal is trying to let them be normal two year olds, not two year old triplets. This means playing in the house and not a fenced in room, walking at the zoo and not strapped in a stroller (with monkey back packs of course) and our "Chick-Fil-A Fridays". I've decided that the normalcy is just as much for me as it is the kids. I want to be a normal mom that does normal things with her two year olds!
So needless to say, I stay rather busy with the little munchkins having free rein of the house and by the end of the day, I'm beat, exhausted, done! So I have decided to do one big post with all our latest happenings instead of doing one each day, b/c trust me, it will never happen! So sit down relax, it's gonna be a long one boys!
About a month ago, Jake the kids and I met my parents up in Norman for OU's "Red/White Spring Game". It's just a scrimmage, but it's the only game the kids get to go to, and with the love for all things OU, I knew they would enjoy it this year. Last year they were still pretty young and they had fun, but they didn't quite get it. This year though, they had a blast. The weather was great and the kids loved it! They loved all the OU's everywhere, the band, the football players, the music, even the "Rufnek's" and their guns. Here's some pics from our big day.
"What? Me? I didn't do anything wrong!" - Guilty Huddy
"I so have this guy whipped" - Ella, self proclaimed "Pincess" and her Daddy
"Carter run very fast" - Carter man who now talks in the third person
"Don't I look adorable with my Big Poppa and my mom's OU retro Nike kicks she wore when she was a baby" - Charlie man
"Why do you think all these people are jumping up and down behind the crazy lady with the camera? I guess if we just do what they tell us, they'll stop acting like fools." - The Whole Gang
The next weekend, Jake and his brothers took his Dad to Alabama for a little golf weekend. While the boys were away, the kids and I stayed with Jake's mom, Granna. The kids had a blast! They helped with the horses, played with the dogs and their all time favorite, drove the gator. We also went to a rodeo with Granna, Aunt Brynn and cousin Julia. The kids loved all the "horsey neighs" and "Yee-haw cowboy hats"! Here's some pics of our time at the farm.

Last weekend my parents came down to see the kiddos. They decided they wanted to see them enjoy the zoo, so Saturday, we loaded up and headed to see the "big monkeys" and the "youd yion" (loud lion). The kids did great, they walked almost the entire time and were totally exhausted by the time we got home. We also went and go the kids their summer shoes and they love them. They are the same style they wore last year, but they were awesome, and I decided why fix something that isn't broken, right? Here's some pics of the kids and us at the zoo.

Me and the big man, isn't he too cute!

In between all that, we have been having our weekly play dates with Hollee, Marlee, Lilly and Beau. Hudson, Ella and Carter just adore them and everytime we get in the car, they ask if we are going to see "Lilly, Beau?" They love Hollee and Marlee too, but they just don't ever say their names. We go to the zoo, the park and the botanical gardens. Here's some pics of our fun playdates.

I promise, I will do better at this blogging thing. I know I've said it before, but I'm really going to try. I know, I know, promises, promises.
