The Coincidence of 4/16

Coincidence... otherwise known in the thesaurus as: accident, chance, luck, fluke, or twist of fate, just to name a few.  I don't think April 16th really matches these...

The definition of Coincidence seems more appropriate... A sequence of events that although accidental seems to have been planned or arranged.

April 16th is the March of Dimes walk in which our family is participating...
April 16th was also the original due date of our babies, born on January 28th :) 
I doubt that is an accident or a fluke. 
It does however seem planned or arranged!

Maybe another reminder of the importance of the March of Dimes! 
Maybe a reminder to me of all that prematurity has brought with it these last two years,
               and all that our incredible babies have overcome! 
Maybe just a reminder...

Please consider a donation to the March of Dimes!  For every $1 raised, $.93 goes directly towards research and programs to help babies have a healthy start!  Since 1938, the March of Dimes has benefited every baby in some way, and some babies (like ours) in many ways.

April 16th, here we come!  It may not be our birthday, but because of the March of Dimes, we have three birthdays to celebrate.

First trip to the beach as a Party of 3!
No trache means the sand is okay - woo hoo! 
Although, while Olivia and George were all about the sand,
Samuel was all about the ocean... check out the direction of their eyes :)

More beach photos to come, but for now it's about the celebration of being together!
