Leigha and the Triplets

Even MORE Family!

A few days after Val left, Noe's sister and brother-in-law came to stay with us for 10 days. It was fun having someone to chat with at night, however, I think I kept her up later than she would have liked! Every night Rick would head up to bed and I think Nat would stay for an extra hour or two.

I have never really gotten to know Noe's family. He has two sisters and 4 brothers. Felix, the oldest, moved here awhile back. He is really the only brother I have gotten to know. Nat has been out here to visit several times. Rick's mom and step dad lived out here so they would come at least once a year. They always stayed at their house, so I didn't get a chance to really hang out with them. Since Noe and I work opposite of each other, they tend to be there when I am in school.

The kids warmed right up to Rick and Nat!

Leigha was treated like a queen. I think she feels a little left out, most of the time. She definitely lost a lot of attention, from others, since her brothers were born. It's hard to hide it from her, she hears the comments from the people who are shocked when they see us coming. They aren't bad, just the typical shock of seeing triplets or our Choo Choo Wagon. After this special day with her aunt and uncle, she had little to complain about! They took her to the Adventure Dome at Circus Circus! It was a day of having all of the attention focused on her. She was able to do all that she could, instead of us saying we can't do that because we have the boys with us. Even though I didn't get to experience it with her, it was wonderful listening to her when she returned home. Don't worry, I warned her that this is a VERY SPECIAL day and that it doesn't happen very often. I can't have her thinking we can run over there every weekend!

Leigha played lots of different games.

She got to eat a ton of junk food!

They walked around looking at all there was to see.

Leigha rode on a lot of fun rides!(Third from left)

I guess the people on the train (and employee) didn't understand that this was a VERY important day for her. I don't think they liked the fact that Mom wanted to see pictures of her having a wonderful day.

She even got to fly!

All in all, she had a WONDERFUL day!!

So great to see Leigha enjoying some one on one time... even if it wasn't with her parents. My oldest loves (even requires occasionally) a bit of E time away from the craziness of having triplet sisters who are 17 months younger than she is! Super nice of them to document it so well for you in pictures, too!

I think Leigha's probably got the hardest job of all! She deserved a break :)

Loren-I think she would agree with you! Especially when Mom hides in her office.
