Please Stay ON Grass…

Brad and I let the boys do some grass exploration the other night after a long walk. At first they just sat in it motionless, then Henry (shocking, I know) took off, and before we knew it we were playing “Keep the Quads on the Grass”, giving about 12 of our neighbors some nice entertainment. Perhaps its time to start getting some fence estimates????? After this Brad “jog mowed” the yard before dark – Joe & Suz, you know what I’m talkin’ about! They look so serious in these pictures – but TRUST ME they LOVE being out in the Great Outdoors!

    I just stumbled upon your blog the other day and just wanted to say what a beautiful family you have! Your boys look so sweet and so very boy! 🙂
    I know the Lord gives all the grace you need day to day to care for your precious boys…I’ve never had even a set of twins, but the Lord has abundantly blessed us with 11 children in the past 11 years.
    Your whole family has such joyful faces 🙂 Children truly are a blessing.

    Amazing pics, Jen! They looked like they were enjoying the fresh air – as we all are! Sarah can not walk outside without running for the swing/playset!! Oh…was thinking of you while at the Dr yesterday. Check out my Wheezy post.

    All I can say is, “Thank the Lord, spring is here!” Great pics, Jen. It looks to me like Isaac and Henry still have such baby faces and Brooks and Clark are starting to look more and more like “little boys”. They’re all so handsome and I love watching them get bigger and grow up every time I log on.
    Enjoy the beautiful weather!
    Love,

    Oh this brings back memories. I have a picture of my third child about the same age in the grass. I sat her down in our back yard so that I could push her brother on the swing and she would not keep her legs touching the grass. So picture her in a little sun dress bare legged sitting on her bottom and trying to hold her legs up so that the grass wouldn’t touch them. She almost rolled right on over backwards a couple of times. But as soon as she came back forwards and her legs touched the grass back up they would go. It was hilarious!
    Smiles!

    Jen,
    They all just look so gorgeous! How thrilling to have them all enjoy being outside! YEAH!
    Sadly, Will has so many problems with his sensory stuff that he HATES touching the grass. (not that I have any since our pig eats it all! LOL)

    Great pics! It’s so funny when babies meet grass for the first time, and they just sit there unsure of what to do with that prickly green stuff! What fun!

    Jen,
    Just wanted to say thanks. Your blog has been a life saver today. I have three very sick little girls here and the only thing that is making them happy is looking at your boys and saying babies. I swear they must know that your DH and I share the last name or something. LOL!

    Way to go Murray Boys, you have made three sick little girls very happy today.
