Seeing Double

Weekend before last, we had a cookout with some friends.  Actually, the cookout was with my best friend from college, who was also my maid of honor in our wedding.  We lost touch during law school, then got back in touch a little over a year ago.  Now here’s the crazy thing – she also has two-year-old triplets and a baby!  I still can’t believe that we ended up with such a similar family make-up after all these years, but I’m really glad that we did.

Anyway, my friend, her husband, and their 4 kids all came over the weekend before last.  I kept trying to get a photo of all of the kids in the same photo, but I never managed to get all of them in a shot.  I came close a couple of times, though.
