Under Construction & More Billboard Sightings!

Grampy and Grammy Steece bought the quads an awesome outside Step 2 swing set for their birthday! So early Saturday morning, the dudes headed outside to assemble the equipment. Shiloh was overseeing the project while resting in the shade.

Uncle Ed drove up to join in the fun!...by this time, its getting a weeeee bit toasty outside.

Heat exhaustion can do some crazy things to 2 grown men.

Success! We LOVE it--it is the perfect size for four 2-year olds! Plenty of swings, lots of room in the double decker playhouse...the kids have a blast on it. (The next post will have lots of pics with the kiddos playing on their new swing set! SO much fun!)

3 engineers and 6 hours later---Thank you guys SO much for your hard work! Love you to pieces!!!

Later that afternoon, the out of town fam was itching to see the billboards---so we cleaned up and headed over to the Fort Worth Zoo area on University. HOLY COW! I hadn't seen this one up close--it was awesome!

SO neat to see the kids recognize themselves right away! They were all saying: "E....Doo....Ssssah....Beeeeen" SO CUTE! (Mama with Sav, Jess with E, Grammy with Ben, Grampy with Drew)

Because things can happen in an instant....INDEED! (Ethan, Andrew, Savannah, Benjamin)

This was especially neat for Grammy to experience, b/c the quads' Great Grandfather Tracy built his business with his own two hands---billboards, signs, etc. So special to watch life come full circle...he would be so proud of his great-grandquads! ;)

Other exciting news today: My cousin Jason and his wife Julie will be welcoming their baby girl, Reagan, into the world any second now! SO excited! and Quad Mom-Beth Walker and her husband, Casey, are celebrating the release of his new CD with his band, CAVO: Bright Nights, Dark Days (of which the single, "Let it Go" is on the Transformers II soundtrack! So cool!) Congrats you guys!

Next up: Dinner at Joe T Garcia's; Late Night Birthday Cupcakes; Swing set and presents!

I am sitting here, cracking up a the picture of the three "grown" men, on the playstructure. I'm wondering if they even let the kids play on it because they seem to like it so much. lol!! Love the billboard pictures. I think when the quads are older, they are really going to enjoy these shots.

I just added "Let It Go" to my playlist this morning (small world) love the song, it is awesome...everyone needs to go listen to it :) The Quads are getting so big...I don't comment much, I'm what you call a lurker, but I've been with y'all from before they were here - the billboard is great, I haven't seen it in person, I'll have to go on that side of town now...they are so cute, and you are an awesome Momma!

This is another comment section where I just don't know where to start!
Oh,the fun the playground will bring in the future :) ;)
So, you didn't send me a text to tell me it was a "Joe Shirtless" Post! I wasn't prepared! I saw the first picture and it didn't have his precious face and then, Ms. Suz, you never let me down, there was a full front shot! ;)
The babies and the billboard, I could go on and on!
Your Oh So Hot self at the Billboard Viewing! You my friend are SMOKIN!!!!!
The shout out to Beth! So so well deserved for CAVO!

Just interested, you said the kiddos were saying out their names on the bill board....can Sav and Ben tell the twins apart? Always wondered how quickly siblings are able to tell.

Love the bill board...especially Ben peeking over the top!

Suzanne said...

jess- thanks girl---the shoes are from my fav store: francescas (but they are from last year)

carina- yes! its crazy--but savannah could say the boys' names and tell them apart right after she turned one? smart cookie. but yes--they can all tell the twins apart. even dad has to ask sav sometimes during bath time, who's who! so funny.
