During the visit, with 9 kids under age 5, we dubbed it "crazy madness" when things started getting out of control, like when too many kids were crying, or too many kids demanded juice or a snack, or it was too loud, or you could hardly walk through the room because it was like wading through a shallow sea of midgets. "Crazy madness!" we'd exclaim. One day I had to take 6 kids in my car, and it was crazy madness. I know my car (Honda Pilot) is made to seat that many, and we got it in case it ever had to on a regular basis, but WHOA. It was crazy madness (and really tough to try to get a picture of it all!)
2 rear-facing seats, side-by-side, was a pretty amazing feat.
But the back row was where the party was at!
I just LOVE Eli's expression in this last one! he was so frustrated the the big kids were out of their seats for the picture and he was still wrangled into his 5-point harness.
