The BIG Train Ride

Ready or Not...Here we Come!


Patiently waiting.

I'm READY! - Parker

Daddy is as ready as he's ever going to be! Claire and Preston are trying to prepare themselves!

WHOA!!! HOLD UP!!! I'm FALLING! - This is Carson trying to get some body's attention! Claire's in the back saying....ARE YOU FOR REAL??

WOW...that was a jolt! Ummm...could you help us out here...we weren't quite ready. - Carson and Griffin trying to hang on!

We're going on a train ride!

I'm a little nervous about all this momma! - Carson

Life is GOOD! - Griffin

Are we done yet?

I'm thinking I could drive this thing..."You think so?"

I think the train ride is you're not planning on taking my daddy are you? - Claire making sure everybody knows Rick belongs to her!

I'm feeling a little sick! - Preston

I LOVE this! - Griffin

I could do this every day!

Lot's of Deer


I'm just saying...I think he could drive a little faster.

That was fun! Let's do it again!

Parker is still smiling!
The babies are still smiling!

Mom and Dad are trying to as well!

One of our favorite outings was the "Train Ride". It was quite interesting how we got everybody on the train and off the train, but it was well worth it! Everyone enjoyed meeting the quads and getting a good laugh out of our adventure with all the kids. Parker was such a big help with the babies...he even tried to help tell the guy how to drive the train. :) :) After we got done with this...we called it a day and headed back for the cabin. We're getting better about getting them out, but WOW it's a LOT of work. Love, Jenn

You probably don't know who I am, but I've met Rick through Doug Eyster. I have an 8 year old son that checks on "his" quads daily on the blog. Saturday night we were at the Hydro Fair watching the team penning and Tucker said, "There's the herd mom." I had know idea what he was talking about, and when I asked him again he said, "There's the herd mom and Parker." And sure enough - I looked over at the next set of bleachers and there ya'll were. I thought it was funny that he recognized you & Parker from the blog! Tucker kept looking for the babies, but he understood when I told him that was probably a special outing for you and Parker to spend time together. Just wanted you to know how much my family enjoys the blog and especially watching the quads & Parker grow and change.
