A week ago today, Greta took the kids up to my parent's place in Cadillac for an entire week. I didn't head up there until last Wednesday night, which explains the void in the blog. I had never spent more than a night away from Greta and the kids since they were born and, quite frankly, it was a nice little break. By the time Wednesday rolled around, however, I was dying to see my little family again.
Our neighbors in Cadillac, Mackenzie, Madison, Amy and Morgan (hereafter referred to as "the girls") played with the triplets almost constantly. Not only did that make it seem like a real vacation for Greta and I, but the kids just loved it. They laughed and screamed with joy like we have never seen and would get hyper excited when the girls would come over each day. The girls also started a walking competition amongst the 3 after getting Niklas to take some of his first steps (video to come). All in all it was a great week, and it was fun to see our kids up North playing, just like I did up there over 30 years ago. Greta and I managed to go out to eat one night and were able to see the Cadillac fireworks on the pontoon thanks to the baby sitting services of my Dad. Thanks for having us up and letting the Myers tornadoes trash your cottage!
