Weekend BBQ

We had a great time this weekend and took the kids to their first BBQ at a friend's house! Here are some pics!

Like father, like son...love this pic of Joe and Ben. As soon as we arrived, Ben was all over the place, checking everything out.



Drew- again, VERY timid and anxious to be in any new place...its like a complete 180 from when he is running around laughing and smiling at our house all day long...but he quickly warms up and is ready to go.



Here Ethan is asking me one of his BILLION questions a day...the face cracks me up!



Momma and Daddy takin' turns...eating, feeding, watching, entertaining




Savannah found a doll lying around...of course



And this was too cute! Sweet Kylie was sharing her sidewalk chalk with Savannah--it was adorable watching the Little Miss hang out with other girlfriends!



and the ride home....ahhh....this is what I saw when we pulled into our garage.














Their carseats are still facing backward, so I just reached around with my camera and snapped the pics! (Not the best quality...but we sure did have some SOUND asleep little rugrats!)

Fun times! Thanks, everyone for helping us keep an eye on the quads! We had so much fun!!!

Suz, It was so fun to be able to spend some time with all of you! I am still amazed at how great the the quads were...I mean, seriously, they were ANGELS...and so much fun too! Kylie loved playing with her new friend...she will share her babies with Sav anytime! Glad you guys made it home safe with lots of sleeping babies! Hugs!

I love relaxing weekend hangouts like that! So much fun! And, I have a little cousin that is just like Drew -- he get's SO anxious when there's change! Poor babies!

Corrie Loftin said...

Haha, I was going to say the same thing someone else did.. Is one of the boys in a pink carseat? If he was, I would think it's awesome lol I always tell my husband if we ever have a boy, he might be mad at me because I am going to make him love pink too! lol LOVE the plaid shorts too!
Your kids are adorable!

That means they had a ton of fun if they were that tuckered out on the way home. Looks like they had a great time!

Barbara Manatee said...

Fun! Love the photo of Savannah and the sidewalk chalk. My 2 yr old daughter LOVES to 'color' outside!

Channa said...

Suzi, small world. I actually saw some of the pictures on facebook. I went to HS with Annie and Hollie created my blog. The quads are sooo cute.

Following Him said...

Ok so I don't think it's fair that Drama Mama has hung out with you all and I live 20 minutes away. I know vow to be able to meet the quads too before they are two! They are so adorable and precious at this age :) Thanks for the update and PICTURES!

Kelly said...

Ashley's things she hearts are dolls, sidewalk chalk, markers (and what a mess she is w/them!) and FOOOOOOD!

Love the pictures. They all looked so cute in their party attire!

Lani said...

Looks like a great day! Don't you just love to see those sleepy faces when you pull into the garage:)?

What cuties! That pic of Daddy and Ben's matching shorts and shoes is awesome! A little mini me in the making. BBQ was definitely in the air this weekend - we grilled out with the kids at home and tried to teach them not to adjust the temp of the grill while the steaks are on it! Enjoy this Texas spring weather - I'll be praying it stays around for awhile!

Lurker here,

I was pleasantly surprised to hear your children are still rear-facing, and even more impressed that their straps and chest clips look good! I have seen so many photos of improperly used car seats on blogs that I was actually shocked to see proper ones!

Not sure why I felt the urge to comment on it but there ya go!

(And yes, I try to nicely tell those people about proper carseat use, since it is a HUGE matter of safety, but people are not usually too responsive :( Maybe you could do a post on it one day??)

mrsstrickland said...

Yea for still rear-facing!! I left you an award on my blog... go check it out!

The Murray Crew said...

So I'm gonna pretend like I'm wearing shorts and short sleeves too...LOVE that Tejas Spring!

The pix are tres adorable, Suz. I'm partial to the sleeping carseat ones...sweetness.

SQUEEZES,
The Crew

Do you have 2 pink carseats?

Now, that looks like a fun and exhausting day! Thanks for sharing.

Moni Graf said...

I love the picture of the exchange of sidewalk chalk between Sav and Kylie! This is my interpretation of the encounter:

K - "Here ya go, Sav...you can have some of my chalk if you want it."

S - Not quite sure if this is a trick or something....It's NEVER this easy at home. She slowly grasps the chalk, cringes and expects her 3 brudders to blindside them and take ALL the chalk. When that doesn't happen, Sav slowly looks up at Kylie completely awestruck with how Kylie managed to bypass the Steece boy destruction or meltdown. Amazing.

Dear Kylie, you might always be the one that Sav looks up to now on playdates. Homegirls got their backs!

Okay, so maybe nothing even remotely close to that happened, but it was fun to embellish a little.

Glad the BBQ was fun. Was it as fun as a BTQ BBQ? wink, wink.

Love ya Suz y su familia incredible!

Oh love the picture of the girlfriends! Poor Sav, at times she must be a bit overwhelmed.

Rachel said...

Looks like everybody had a great time! The kiddos sure were tuckered out in the backseat!

Looks like you had a blast! Don't you love it when after a day of fun the kids just go to sleep with no fuss. :)

So glad you still have your kids Rear-facing! Just make sure that the straps are at or BELOW their shoulders. Some of them look a little high.

loomis said...

Give the momma a break car seat nazis. She is doing great.

mommy-medic said...

Just found your blog through a link of a link of a link, and wanted to say wow you have your hands full, and Kudos to you for extended rear facing! I am so glad that people are spreading the word about how much safer it really is (sadly I see it first hand).

Anyway, cute family and great blog!

JO said...
