Quints on a mission to go places!

Our kids are really excited anytime they get to go somewhere in a car, especially if it's Marmi and Papa's car! I love how Gracie wanted to wear a polar fleece jacket whereas Marcie chose a tank top dress. I'm guessing it wasn't too cold that day or all the kids would have been in jackets! It's quite cool some mornings during our "winter" - one day it got down to just above freezing close to dawn! In houses without central heating or insulation, that is COLD.  I feel like I can't pile enough blankets on top of the kids at 4:30 a.m. They have wearable blankets too, thankfully. 

Cloudy nights are much warmer, but alas there have been so few clouds during this drought it's really more like the cold of desert nights. 

What do you do when you have quints, one adult and one twin stroller? Put three of the kids to work pushing, in this case Gracie, Will and David (who was about to lose his britches at any moment, poor skinny kid). They were really excited to help push, thankfully!

David begs to go in the helicopter with his daddy, but that hasn't happened yet - at least not on a real flight. He loves to pretend, though! Gavin is on an 8-day trip, a record for us; it's getting a bit wearing being the only parent, honestly. David said he's sad because "My daddy went bye-bye in the helicopter!" I made a mistake when I told him that we couldn't just "go see Daddy and his helicopter" because Daddy is far away at the ocean, David decided we should go to the ocean too. Ocean plus helicopter plus Daddy equals bliss to a three-year-old!
