Our Visit with The Fowler Family!
January 16th 2013
On January 16th we drove from San Antonio to Belton, Texas to visit The Fowler Family! We had not seen them since they were a family of three! They have since had twin boys 4 days older than Sam! Over the years Dayspring and I have talked almost daily about being wives to men who travel and treat us well, about being moms, struggles to get pregnant, and even commiserated while we were both pregnant at the same time, her with the twins and me with Sam all the way on different sides of the country! Our friendship has remained strong and endured distance and time! We met when they were stationed in Oceanside. They ten moved to Korea for two years, back to Oceanside for a year then to Virginia. They are now settled in Texas. As soon as we saw one another it was like no time had passed at all! I am so grateful for her friendship over the years! Now to spend some time together!
It was a trip to see them all lined up for meals! It was a challenge to be the one on spoon duty trying to feed them all yogurt and keep them all happy! I took the feeding duty quite a bit because it was a fun challenge and loved it! but boy let me tell you, three one year old boys is a lot more than one!

Guy and Day wrestling the twins during story time!
We took a walk from the Fowler’s house down to the lake. The kids had a blast skipped stones and explored and we had a little photo shoot! Dayspring is one of my favorite free photographers! This family photo is one of my all time favorite pictures!
We went out for Tex-Mex with all of the kids and it was quite the adventure! We are grateful for foodie friends like Day and Ryan because dinner was awesome! The kids did great and Sam even tried sharing his food with the twins, he is such a sweet boy!

Another little impromptu photo shoot by Dayspring!
This cute little dude!
There were all sorts of animals,
mazes with balls, which the three littlest, Finn, Keen, and Sam loved!
Here the littlest three were enjoying watching the train run on the set below!
It was so funny trying to get a family photo of the Fowlers, it proved next to impossible. Here are 4 of the 5 and only Day and Ryan are looking!
Cormac and Layla loved the international dress up room and make believe play!
There were giant bubbles and buffalo!
There was enough space to soar down the hallways and let your cape fly behind you!
There was a huge piano a great spot for littles to crawl!
The museum was a blast!
When we got home we fed the littlest monkeys and made dinner for ourselves! Guy and Ryan grilled steaks and Guy made his famous chipoltle sweet potatoes!
Ellery came all the way from Houston to spend a couple nights with us! A four hour drive just to hang out with us! We love You Ellery Grace Grace Capuozzo, you are the most awesome teenager ever!
After our awesome reunion with Ellery, some Ellery snuggles and hugs and a delicious dinner, we made s’mores in the Fowler’s outdoor fireplace! Yum, it doesn’t get much better than s’mores with friends and family!
These two waiting patiently…
so are we… patiently roasting the perfect marshmallows!
One of the boys, I think it is Sam, cruising around with two bats! Yikes!
