Fighting for our MIRACLES!

So Saturday was the big day. Our first March of Dimes walk. When I was roped into this little adventure I was told it was a 2 mile walk, turns out it's a 5 mile walk.....with the kids. Needless to say I was in a slight panic with the thought of walking 5 miles, I mean have you seen that belly I'm sporting these days? Oh and having the kids get up early and join us did not sound easy either. But we did make it....but just barely. We took dead last, we were so far behind everyone else they were taking down the signs behind us. 5 miles in just under 3 hours, and that was with us power walking the last 3 miles to beat the rain. Good times I tell ya, good times.

The kids were actually quite good even though we woke them up 1.5 hours early.

This picture cracks me up, she looks like she is posing.

Happy boy getting ready for his long day of flirting.

We have arrived! After some minor travel issues, just how do you fit a triple stroller on a bus you ask? Couldn't tell you we wimped out and parked in a near by neighborhood.

Here we are waiting for the walk to start. We were freaks I tell you freaks. You can see the people in the background staring at us. It was pretty much non stop. If you look closely at the ground you can see the snacks daddy dropped on the ground, nice work daddy those were our favorites!

Hey you look just like the Cox Family. I wonder if you have any pictures on your blog? Hmmm, maybe hit the link and find out...I bet there may even be a VERY cute picture of Logan on there.

Ok so now we were just ASKING for attention!

Look at the two ladies in the back. I am sure they are saying something like, can you believe that tiny little thing gave birth to those three kids....I mean she is so skinny.

The starting line..Finally. What you can't see here is me dumping my diet coke down the front of my shirt as I try to take this picture. Ya pretty good start for me, first the snacks now the coke. Has to get better.

One of many posters along the path reminding us why we are there braving the elements. And it was about this time I thought it would be funnier to answer any questions about the number of babies in our group with, nope they are septuplets and rotate between Heather and AJ as the mom. Comment of the day "They alls twins?"

And while you can't read this sign it is the Gerwer's sign. Unfortunately this is as close as we would get to the Gerwer clan this day as the kids were all sick and Daddy Gerwer was "sick". And by "sick" I mean hung over. And by hung over I mean he drank too much the night before and the faked sick the next day.

Whats that you think you are a super mom or super dad? Well maybe you should get a shirt to tell the world at the best online store DesignedForBabies!

After mile one it was time for food. This picture pretty much sums it all up. Me feeding Logan, AJ holding Lizy and trying to give Madi some snacks. Easy...riggghhhtt.

Logan hamming it up.

Like usual waiting on the women.

See I told you the sign was for the Gerwer's.

Gangsta Madi sports the sideways cap, because that's how gangsta's roll.

Logan grabbing the seat, this actually gets us pretty excited! Yay Logan!

Madi was exhausted and fought off a nap the entire walk.

She did fall asleep but her poor head kept bobbing up and down, poor Barbarian.

We MADE IT. And thanks to all who donated!

Quad Mom's tied for last!

Brandons commentary as usual and AJ's pictures. Honestly we cannot thank you enough for the donations for our team, we raised $600 for the March of Dimes. We can only hope this helps at least one premature baby.

Pictures - No order don't judge us!

Ok so sometimes I try to put pictures in order. Other times when my wonderful wife uploads 48 pictures for your viewing pleasure, I just try to get through it. So in no order what so ever I give you PICTURES.

Mama I just don't know!

Can not remember if we ever posted Lizy "The Barbarian's" ER shots on here. Either way here is a couple shots of the damage.

This pattern is SOOO 3-6 months.

Ok so she is trying to read the book sideways, but at least she is not eating it. Baby steps y'all, baby steps.

Umm, ya busted. What cracks me up is that AJ had to stop go get the camera, then yell at her.

Okay the following three pictures are from the same meal time.

First Lizy food all over, even on her forehead somehow.

Logan, fair share on the face but mostly on the bib.

I swear this is an after shot. See that spec on her bib, probably one of her more messy feeds.

Everyone in the bath together. I found this nifty chair at a sale, works great for Logan.

Lizy attempting to help Mommy with Logan.

Logan rocking out with Elmo. Madi looming in the background to attack Elmo. Side note this Elmo toy moves side to side and if you ask the girls "What does Elmo Say?" They shake their head back and forth like saying no. Very funny.

Lizy taking her turn with the most expensive teether in the world. Seriously if anyone can tell me what the crap this thing does please let me know. WORST. TOY. EVER.

Yep your going to need two new shoes before you can take this bad boy anywhere. That will be 4000 cookies.

Swear on the life of my kids this was not staged. Girls sat like this on their own.

Logan sound asleep, unaware of the danger that lurks.

Girls playing with their riding toys, making me regret not putting up padded walls. Anyone know a good painter?

Wow what a great picture you say? That's what happens when they get my good leg.

Hanging with the girls.

No matter how many times they fail they keep trying to tear down my gate. Sorry but Daddy found a stud!

This is how our toys spend most of the day, on their side after the Barbarian knocks them over.

She gets that disgusted look from her mother. Yes Madison I know the couch is gross.

The Loogie relaxing in his chair.

If I'm not mistaken "It's Baby Signing Time!"

The girls love to "share" the chairs. What you won't see is Lizy kicking Madi out in like 4 seconds.

Staring contest.

Its a tie!

He doesn't look relaxed at all.

Sometimes you just run out of things to say.

Easter and pretty sure Lizy is done with photos.

Still getting the hang of the slide.

AJ calls this her Linus picture.

Lizy is in the stage where she wants to bring you EVERYTHING!
Here she is bringing us her snack that she grabbed off the table.

And now the wipes. This game gets old fast by the way.

Going for a train ride. Me in the greatest shirt ever made! AJ hates this shirt and has tried to throw it out on many occasions. We were going through some old college pictures and she saw one of me in this shirt and she could only ask in horror "Is that your orange shirt?" Yep 11 years and counting, just breaking it in.

Bows, ya right those stayed in.

Oh you wanted me to fold the boppy covers. I thought you said unfold, my bad.

This shirt not as old.

Logan working hard. Great job shake shake shake!

Excuse me can't a girl get some privacy!

Ummm, AJ loaded the pics I got nothing here.

Logan always has to know where The Blue is before he is happy.

She is moving the ball pit to a better location (both girls do this all day long).

This is his concentration face.

Girls hiding in their fort.
