Enjoying the outdoors

Fall has finally kicked in so we packed up everyone for a day outdoors to enjoy the cool and sunny weather. We first went to the Louisiana Book Festival where Lucas got to enjoy some face painting and had the chance to visit with one of his favorite TV characters "Martha". Mommy and Daddy didn't get to see a whole lot since we had to keep an eye on our active 3 year old and we were stopped many of times to be questioned about our babies.

I think that maybe in the future I will post a sign on the stroller saying something like this: "Yes, they are triplets. No, they are NOT identical. Yes, we have our hands full but our hearts as well. No, don't feel sorry for us because we are loving every minute of it except when you stop us while we are trying to spend some family time!" I can actually picture myself carrying a huge sign (like the ones you see on Bourbon Street telling you that you will go to hell for being a sinner).

Anyways, after the Book Festival we went to our City Park for the very first time. It was beautiful and all but Julie got to enjoy some swing time. Tyler and Noah were on a swing for the very first time and had a blast as you can tell from looking at the pictures. Lucas got to enjoy the entire playground and we even got to see lots of doggies play on the doggy playground right next to it. It was a perfect ending to a beautiful day!

TV Appearance

I received an e-mail the other day notifying me of Lucas' appearance on Sprout TV's PICME show which will air today, October 9th, between 4 and 5 pm CST! I am so excited for him and can't wait to see the look on his face when he sees himself on TV. PICME is an animated show that uses a face shot of a little boy or girl on their show to tell a little story.

I had uploaded a picture onto Sprout Online a few weeks ago so that Lucas and I could play with the PICME application online and I gave them permission to use his photo for the show and voila, he was chosen, yay. Unfortunately we have no way of taping the show but we will be using our camcorder to catch his reaction and part of the show. And I almost forgot, our local newspaper will be mentioning his appearance as well. I'm really happy that Lucas gets a few minutes of fame since people tend to overlook him since the birth of our triplets over nine months ago. Way to go baby!

PS - Julie is finally sitting up on her own and crawling. She and Noah love balloons and race to get to the nearest one. They are just too funny. I also have to watch Noah very closely because he will take off and sneak into the foyer to stare at the fish tanks.

PSS - I am currently without a laptop (again) since the motherboard blew up again. I don't know what kind of junk the geeks decided to install but if it's not repaired right this time they better beware......(to be continued)
