First Outing

The six of us went for our first outing today. Of course, we went to the mall. We all love the mall! It only took 2 hours to get ready to leave by feeding the babies, packing the diaper bag, packing up the van, and getting Bridget ready. Good thing the mall is only minutes from our house!

Megan rode around the mall in our single stroller, while Holly and Liam shared our double stroller. (We will get a triple stroller when they can sit up.) It was nice to get out for a few hours. I had forgotten that Aunt Tina was planning on stopping by our house to drop off Bridget's birthday present (she forgot it yesterday), so she ended up meeting us at the mall a bit later. We all had dinner together, and of course, Bridget, Kaitlyn and Ann had lots of fun together. 

Both Tina and I found some great deals at Kay-Bee Toys, since they're going out of business. Other than that, we mostly window-shopped. Afterwards, the girls got to play in the play area, then we all headed to our house for awhile. 

Poor Bridget was WAY TOO TIRED, and she ended up throwing a HUGE tantrum while playing the Cinderella game with Kaitlyn. So unfortunately, Bridget missed out on some of the fun, since she was sent to her room to calm down. Kaitlyn helped by holding a baby during this time. Auntie Tina also pitched in with feeding the babies and changing diapers. 

We now know that we can survive a 3 hour trip out of the house. I just hope the triplets are always this well behaved when we're out!
