the getaway. and Daughtry

And a great getaway, it surely was. The annual Multiples Convention hosted by the Fargo group was a blast. I can't tell you much of what happened since this years motto was, "What happens in Fargo, stays in Fargo," but I can tell you that the portion of our group that attended this year was roughly 25. And, get this, of those 25, I'm the youngest, and quite possibly the most mellow/laidback/first to bed/first to rise/biggest eater/worst raffle player of them all. I guess the older your twins, triplets, or quads get, the crazier they make you.

And, yes, moments after we arrived to the Ramada, we heard that Chris Daughtry was staying in our hotel. He's touring with Jon Bon Jovi and was opening for him last weekend. I didn't even need to wait in the lobby, like I said I would, in the attempt to meet him. After a few of us dropped our bags off in our room, we bumped into him and his Venti Starbucks drink at our elevator. Oh.my.gosh! Though my words barely made it out of my mouth, I was able to ask for a picture with him. Then we (3 other friends and I) rode the elevator down two floors with him where he got out. I knew you were supposed to come, Lori! I wonder who we'll see next convention? My vote is for Shaq Dieeeesel.

Here is part of the part of our group that made the trip to Fargo this year.

That is so great that you can connect with all of those multiples! Good for you!

Glad you had so much fun! I'd love to join you all next year. But do I HAVE to have multiples? Because, as much fun as it sounds that you had, and as much as I'd like to join you all, I must say I am not sure I could be THAT committed...to have multiples "just" to go. So, perhaps I will live vicariously through you!! And be happy with my scant number of non-multiple children:)

UGH!!! I'm dying over here!!!! Oh, I thought of you guys so much this weekend. I'm glad you had so much fun and part of me is soooooo jealous of you all. And that part of me secretly wished you had a rotten time and that you would tell me that it would have only been fun if I was there and if I were talking to Chris Daughtry with you. Ugh. I'm going to die. Seriously. Ok, maybe next year it will be Elvis. Or someone.... I feel sick......

Can I just say you look amazing...the fact that you have had multiples is ridiculous! So glad you had a great time!
