Below are some photos that I have modified from their original state. The photo at the top of the page (of the "knights") is the one I'm most proud of. I do most of these just for my own amusement, but I wanted to share a few that I have worked on since the birth of Our Babies Three.
We went for a little Family Reunion last summer, but forgot to take a family photo. So, Eve had to be stuck in somewhere.
Cate was just learning to pull herself up. In this shot, she was using a side table to pull up. It just looked like she was hanging on for dear life.
This was one of those moments when it hit me "again-for-the-first-time" that we had three babies to take care of.
Jonah was climbing a rock wall on the play-set at Gramma and Grandad's so, it was obvious what had to be be done with this photo.

Some Shots from the Afternoon

Daddy and Caters
Eve-ers and Mommy
Jonah's Self-Portrait - He draws this often and almost always then says, "Look Daddy! It's Jonah!"
Jonah's Rendering of a Whale (I'm working on getting him to draw himself inside the whale)
Cate and Eve
Winston - Up Close

Jonah - tired, but cute
Just as cute as can be...will they always be this cute?

A Little Art

A couple of weeks ago we had our first experience with water colors. All in all it went very well. Cate went for color and coverage. Eve went for a bit of a morbid tone. Jonah went for precision. Beyond what a child psychologist might make of color choices and brush strokes, I've discovered something even more one with triplets should have a home without at least one room floored in linoleum.

The Big Build

The Memorial Day Weekend was spent building and then enjoying a playset at the homestead of the Rogers Grandparents. We had Uncle Ryan, Uncle David, Grandad, Uncle Norman, and Daddy hard at work for a large portion of the weekend. The assembly was made much easier by the sorting that Gramma and Grandad did prior to the weekend. Thanks to everyone's hard work, we had kids climbing, sliding, swinging, and gliding by dinner-time on Sunday. Not a bad weekend's work.
Here's Uncle Ryan and Uncle David at work during an early stage of the build
