Divine Secrets of the Quad-Quad (Quad, Quad) Sisterhood

I’m having major trouble coming up with adequate words to depict our weekend in Tahoe with my Quad Sistas (and Bros). You should read Gen and Suz’s posts, because they pretty much read my mind and typed it up and I’m sure Mari is gonna probably hitting “POST” while I attempt to put a downright amazing 4 days into a teeny little write-up.

In effort to keep from being too repetitive I decided to create a Travelogue to record some of the highlights from our journey. I’ll try not to get too windy, but I may have to break this up into a few parts. Let’s start from the beginning….

BACKGROUND:
Gen, Suz, Mari, and I started developing a friendship through our blogs initially. We were united by our unique circumstances along with the joys and struggles involved in “surviving quads”. Many emails and chats later, our guys started picking up on how close we had bonded. Although thousands of miles separated us, there was a family-like friendship developing.

My true-love, Brad, threw out an email to the “Bros” with the idea of getting us girls together for a girl weekend. Over 150 Emails later, the date/place was set and the boys decided to join us!


The Boys: “Hmmmm…How Could We Get our Girls to Love Us 4Ever????”

Brad: “How ’bout a 4-Day Kid-Free Trip to Lake Tahoe?”
Bros: “Genius, Yo.”

To Be Continued….

    Jen,
    I just LOVE that you all became so close and that your husbands were not only supportive of it, but they became friends as well.
    Just the best husbands EVER!
    I can’t wait to hear it all!

    Glad you got to spend 4 days with adults and kid-free! I hope you had a GREAT time and are now ready to rock’n’roll with the boys! I love the roll play on how you all got together! Also the fact when Bros said: “Genius Yo.” I laughed when I read this!
    Keep up the GOOD work

    This is the best story I’ve read in a long time– and I’m a LIBRARIAN!! I’ve been a McNulty fan for quite awhile, but the connection between the four of you moms has pulled me in. This is seriously the most amazing story– the stuff that Oprah is made of!! Such a blessing that the FOUR of you found each other during and after those pregnancies–God works in mysterious ways! Great pix, great posts!
