"Double your pleasure,
Double your fun" - Doublemint Gum

This last weekend, we attended the first ever X2 Twins Festival in the Middle East.  Held at Safa Park in Dubai, it was a big gathering of lots of twins, triplets, and other multiples of all ages.  It was fascinating and fun. The kids got to play and Yvonne got to ogle at lots of other twins and share parenting stories with lots of other mothers who have "double the trouble, but double the fun."

The girls are a bit small for their age and Talon is energetic for his, so we got a few comments about how cute our triplets are.  We corrected some, but at times just smiled and said that so many kids so close together are a lot of work ;)

The highlight for the kids was a dangerously steep inflatable slide that had no supervision and resulted in a fair amount of bonked heads and tears shed... but also a lot of big smiles.

Here are some snapshots of the fun:

or troubled by some foolish game,
she always seems to make me change my mind." - James Taylor

A Strange Land

"so we make our plans
set our sites on a new land
one that's kind of strange." - Joshua Radin

Alright, I know there have been some comments about the disregard for safety when taking video or photos while driving.   But, on the drive home from work the other day I just couldn't resist.  I mean, where else would you see this about a mile from your house?
