Another mother of quints! Plus another zoo visit

My new friend Opalyn is 22 weeks pregnant with three little boys and two girls! This is her first pregnancy, and she's only been in the U.S. for a couple of years. She is from the Philippines, married to an American. I will hopefully get to meet her next week. She lives quite a ways from us but is still in the Dallas area.

If I have loaned anyone anything that you are now done with (or if you happen to have extra baby stuff floating around that you'd be happy to give away), could you please contact me so I can start collecting quint paraphernalia for Opalyn? We are so excited to be able to pass on the blessings we've so richly received!

Also, please pray for a safe pregnancy and healthy babies who will stay in their momma lot longer than mine did in me, Lord willing!

As we well know, having five babies at once is a ZOO! Speaking of which . . .

We went to the zoo again! The kids love it, Megan and Naomi can get us in for free, and Megan even works there now as a junior zookeeper! Such fun for us all!

Grandpadad and David, who thinks he owns him.
[I had the wrong camera lens on and completely ruined all the pictures I took of my mom with the kids. Sorry!]

Peek-a-boo Gracie!
Peek-a-boo Seth!
Strawberry Marcie! Her onesie from Aunt Krista and Co. has strawberries on it and she's
eating a strawberry in this picture. She loves Grandpadad's hat.

Will was VERY excited about the big flying birds at the bird show!

Climbing the stairs was the most fun part of the bird show!

Seth with David behind him on the stairs (and those are my white pants, ready to catch any falls - and dirt!)
Hugging the metal kangaroos was obligatory, apparently.

Petting the goats: David, Marcie and Seth in the very far right corner

Brave David. The last time they called the goats "doggies," but I don't think they did that this time. I'm pretty sure they barked, though! (The babies, not the goats.)

Doesn't Will look pleased with himself?

Lots of tired kids ready to head home. My favorite, most often-repeated comments during the day were: "Are they all twins?" and "That is the CUTEST thing I've ever seen!" Dress 'em alike, line 'em up, they cause a stir!

Goodnight, Marcie!
