Day One and Two

I could honestly write a post about every day of the trip, but I’ll spare you that, but Day One and Day Two of my trip were probably close to my favorites!  When I booked my flight several months ago I was scheduled to land in Dallas around 9 p.m.  Well, as we got closer I realized I had to be in New Orleans around lunch for that flight, there were lots of layovers.  I decided then if I was already going to be gone all day I might as well just leave a little earlier and get me some Quad Loving from Dallas.  I so wish time would have permitted to make the complete rounds around Dallas, but I promise Casey couldn’t have driven any faster. (Seriously not kidding, my knuckles are still white from gripping the door handle!)
Our first pit stop was at the beautiful, fun loving, holiday decorated house of Mrs. Amy-Jo Sather! I fell in love with AJ well over a year ago and her strength and fortitude absolutely amaze me every day! To say she has one of the cutest boys on the face of the planet would be an understatement, but then you add that little giggle he has to it, holy melt my heart! It was an absolute honor to get to hang out with her adorable children! Sather With only seconds to spare, Casey ordered me back in the burb and we two-wheeled it to her house to pick up her girls for dance lessons.  I’ve loved her children since I was pregnant with my quads and have watched them grow through her blog, but to actually see them in person was amazing! And the fact that they can all say my name followed by I Love You, had me missing my babies really bad! Gerwer1 Just when I was thinking the Nascar race was over Casey had to run me to the other side of town to meet up with Suz and Moni so that we could pick up Gen from the airport. oneNot real sure what I was looking at!
We got to the airport about the time that Gen realized she had no luggage! It shouldn’t have been as funny as it was, but it was HILARIOUS! We left the airport over an hour later with only the hope of “maybe it will turn up tomorrow!” 
We arrived at the Steece’s house around midnight and I was uber excited to meet Joe and…. well, we’ll just leave it at I was excited to meet him! Suz and Joe are one of the most perfect couples I have ever met.  They complete each other’s sentences, act alike, look alike and are so truly genuine!!Joe  I couldn’t wait for the next morning so I could meet her wonderful children and also a blogger friend, Elyse.  Elyse has been a blog follower of mine since the beginning and introduced me virtually to the majority of the quad moms’ blogs.  She is a daily dose of inspiration for me!Elyse1  Playing with the Steece babies was AMAZING! 
I seriously don’t think these kids could be one ounce cuter!
Look at these smiles!
Steece Shortly after we put the babies down for their naps (in their toddler beds, in their big kid undies!!!) we were Austin, TX bound!!!!! I’ll start working on that post now and maybe I’ll be done in the next week or so!!
