Dallas Quad Moms and Cavo

As you all know I am extremely slow at the whole blogging thing. I always have thoughts in my head of what I want to blog about, and 9 times out of 10, they don't happen. I like to think it's because I have 5 kids, to much laundry or dishes to do, or because my husband is always out of town, but really I think those are all just excuses. I will try to do better, but I'm not making any promises:)
A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of going to Dallas, TX. Cavo was playing Cruefest 2 and it just so happen that some of my favorite quad mommas lived there too!! I flew in Friday evening and was picked up from the airport by the lovely Casey Gerwer. Friday was a pretty relaxed evening with a drink and a TON of laughs. Saturday morning I got to meet and play with the Gerwer quads. I fell in love immediately with these 4 awesome and adorable little boys and girls. I also got to meet the Cox quads when they stopped by for a quick visit. We had some time before going to the show so Casey and I got out for a bit to get pedicures and lunch. We were running so late when we got back, so I ran upstairs to jump in the shower and I realized I did not pack the dress I was going to wear. Running around like a crazy woman, I raided Casey's closet and found something that would work, thank the Lord, I was freaking.

Another fabulous quad momma, Misty Urech, was kind enough to pick me up to get me to the venue in time to see Casey(my husband) before they went on. Casey & Robbie Gerwer and Amy-Jo & Brandon Sather met us there. They were only a little late due to an unfortunate stop by the police. Thankfully there were no tickets given and they made it by the second song. It was great to see Casey(hubby) and they put on an excellent show. Afterwards we all hung out behind the Monster energy stage until Cavo had to hit the road again that night. Sunday morning I had an early wake up call to get ready to head back to the airport, but not before I got some more lovin from the kiddos.

Misty picked me up to take me to the airport with her 4 girls. I couldn't go to TX without seeing as many little quaddies as possible. They to were adorable but unfortunately this time around, I only got to talk to them for about 30 minutes. From that point on I just boarded the plane and headed home.

Thank you girls so much for your fantastic hospitality and rides. It was so great to see you and meet your kids, I look forward to doing it again soon.

Here are some shots from the trip. Next up(in probably another month), Cavo's CD release and My sisters Bachelorette party. Stay tuned..............

I found your blog by googling "quadruplets" and "carseats." I am expecting quads myself (I am almost 15 weeks along right now) and we are trying to figure out the best van to buy and the best carseats. I noticed you have a photo of the kids (who are super cute, by the way!) in the configuration I was imagining: 3 in the back row, 1 in the middle row (with one of the middle seats removed or folded down into the floor). I was wondering what brand of carseat allowed this configuration and which van you used (I can't figure out which van would be wide enough and has the proper 3-backseat LATCH configuration).

Also, did this arrangement work when they were rear-facing? Did you use the same carseat (ie. is it convertible) or a different one?

Please help if you can! =) I am feeling quite overwhelmed. If you have time, maybe you could leave a comment on my blog:

Your blog gives me hope that I can handle having 4 babies at once! Thank you so much in advance!
