Our First NICU Reunion Picnic

Last Saturday was the St. Vincent Women's NICU reunion picnic.  This is a yearly event that they put on so that families can reconnect with their doctors, nurses, and other families that were in the NICU.  It was wonderful!  There were so many things for kids to do; bounce houses, rock climbing, train rides, pony rides, petting zoo, carnival games.  I can just imagine what it will be like in a couple of years when the quads are able to participate in all of the fun.  This year, Lilya was able to enjoy all of the entertainment while the quads just looked cute and drew lots of attention.  It was also great to meet other families that we have been in contact with on Facebook, but had never met in person.  I really do feel a special connection to other quad families. 
When the picnic was over, we headed over to St. V's to visit our two favorite nurses since they had to work and miss the picnic.  It is so nice to stay connected to people that are so special.

Speaking of special...We would not have been able to go at all on Saturday if it weren't for our favorite helper, Anne.  Tony had to work, and ther is no way that I would have been able to go on my own, so it was Anne to the rescue AGAIN.  She has been a wonderful help, and we are so glad that she is able to share in the memories that we are making!

I did not get a chance to formally meet you at the picnic. Your kiddos are adorable. Hopefully next time!
