Trip to the Park

The tías have really been wanting to plan an outing for the kids, so last week they decided we needed to take the babies to the park. Today was the big day!

It's quite a bit of work to take 14 babies out (and also all of their supplies along with lunch and everything that goes with that), and we ended up not leaving until about 15 minutes before we normally eat lunch. Then, it started raining as soon as we arrived. It ended up not being the best day for a field trip, but the kids enjoyed getting out. We were gone all afternoon, so it was a nice little break from the normal routine!

 I think Baby C. is ready to learn how to drive ;)

The tías took the other babies into the park while some of us unloaded everything. Baby C. stayed with us and waited patiently at the entrance… She's sitting on the "fin" of a whale!

 Baby G. was worn out after all it took to get us there!

Lunch time!

 A.M. lives at the girls' house but joined us at the park!

Naptime for the babies… as you can see, they wanted no part of that!

Baby B., our newest and youngest baby, slept the day away!

 Setting up our homeless shelter… at least that's what it looked like when it started raining!

Several of the kids found this great hiding spot in our little tent!

 Passed out.

 Baby C. making friends with an alligator.

This is actually a big fish and you can walk inside. There are lots of aquariums and even some birds and turtles.


 These fish look like they're ready to eat!

 We found N. and some of the tías and other kids inside the big fish, too!

Tía Yovana and Baby E., Tía Claudia and S., Tía Silvia and Baby G., Tía Ely and M. and N., and A.M. and Baby C.

Everyone wanted a picture on the alligator! 

Baby A. FINALLY fell asleep toward the end of nap time!

We came back from our little site-seeing tour of the fish and found the kids awake. (*Don't worry- We didn't leave them alone!)

Train ride before going home

Our train car 

 Baby C. was getting sleepy by this point but really liked the train ride!

My co-pilot! Waiting on us to take the trufi back to the boys' house!
