We've been to Twinsburg for TwinFest2014, which was pretty surreal. I'd like to take the boys back each year. Eventually they'll be old enough to meet new twin friends and participate in the twin studies inside the research tents. We got a bit more attention at the festival than I expected, since most of the visitors are twins themselves, but every comment was kind-hearted and polite, which was a wonderful experience for myself!
Earlier this summer Jammin and Aiden had a blast washing the car together and Keith and I took the boys to the Randolph Fair in Ohio. The boys got a kick out of seeing all the animals. We pet ducks, bunnies, horses, goats and sheep. Everyone enjoyed a ride on the merry-go-round (probably the boys favorite part) and got to see some BIG tractors up-close!
My sister Rachael had us over for a pool/pizza party, the boys got musical on a piano and we had a nice picnic in the square where our favorite farmers market takes place. The same square had a September 11 memorial set up with a large flag display. Watching the boys squeal with happiness and burst with excitement fills my, and others hearts with pure joy, especially on a day full of such heartache. It's pretty wonderful to experience life though a toddlers eyes!
This weekend Keith and I spent our first night together away from the babies. This was my first night ever away from them, and it was surprisingly easy-peasy. I put the kids to bed and was back the next morning after breakfast. Big thanks to Mama Rickel for stepping in to babysit, and to Timmy who got us out for a fun bday celebration! It's fun staying up till 3am when you aren't wrestling fussy/crying babies. Last thanks to Meg for having us come by the Fall kick-off today! Aiden was hilarious dive bombing that giant football and I can't stop laughing at Kaleb racing Megan! Hope everyone is enjoying their September!
