HaPpY BiRtHdAy GrAnDpA!

Grandpa and his buddy, Anthony. Grandpa paced the floor many, many hours with this little munchkin. Anthony would scream during feedings and someone would have to walk the floors with him. Grandpa and he became fast friends and they still are.

Grandpa Happy Birthday!

Grandpa's little sidekick, Jakey

And the 4some a year ago. Jaileigh, Anthony, Jakob, and Michael
Delivery Day- Rori was my sunshine while I was in the hospital. The babies almost shared a birthday with her. They were born the 29th and her birthday is the 30th and Grandpa's is the 31st. The Stokes Family has a busy July!

Cake Tasting

The babies got their first taste of cake when we did cake tasting for the babies birthday party.
Do you think they enjoyed it? Just a little practice for the big day.

I think they liked it!!

Once upon a time 2 crazy parents, 4 almost 1 year old babies, and 2 friendly helpers decided to go to Disneyland on a mildly hot and humid day in July.

In the parking garage- "Wait, I think we forgot the babies!" Mikes assuring me that we did not forget the babies.

Karen and Anthony- on the tram on our way to Disneyland

Amber sunscreening and redressing the babies. The boys had on their Disney outfits given to them by Hayley. Jaileighs accidentally got left home, by crazy mom, so we had to stop and buy her an outfit on the way there. Sometimes I load the kids in the car in their diapers because it is so hot and their clothes just make them hotter. That is why I didn't know she didn't have her outfit.

We just got dropped off by the tram, ready to go

Hello downtown Disney. We are nice and fresh looking. Notice Jakeys sunglasses. Mike thinks he looks like a nerd, but I think he's cute.

Karen, Amber and Jocelyn- thank you girls for helping and thank you Karen for the tickets.

Mike and I with the babies

Jaileigh crashed

The only ride we went on was Storybook Land

Anthony relaxin'

Jakey and his cool hat looking a little dazed

Lunch Time at the Pizza Parlor

"This thumb is GOOD!" Jakeys chews on his thumb now that he is teething.

City Hall- Mike and Anthony. We went to City Hall to get the babies a "First Timers" badge and they were out of them. What a bummer.

"Mom I think its time to go home now" Jakey

See you later downtown Disney

Walking out of the magical gates. Michael in the process of falling asleep.

Waiting for the tram. Do we look tuckered out?

The boys crashed on the way to the car and of course once we got in the car they woke up.

"HA HA I know how to get all the attention, wait until all the boys are asleep!" Jaileigh pulling her signature smirk/nose wrinkle. Bill taught her how to do this and now she does it all the time. Hopefully she is ignoring him when he tells her "Mom is a monkey".

When we got home, off came the clothes and they went crazy!

"We LOVE our Daddy!"

We lasted at Disneyland a lot longer than I had anticipated. I thought an hour tops. We got their at 10:30 and left around 2 or 2:30. That was pretty good for 4 little babies.
And the all lived happily ever after. . . . . . The End

Summertime Video

Turn off the music player at the very bottom of the page. This video has music and if you get the blog music and this music playing at the same time its rather annoying.

Tomorrow you get to look forward to . . . . DISNEYLAND pictures!
