Marimosa, Marimixalot...

You were my biggest shocker to meet in person. I loved you via email and through your blog, but had no idea I could possibly love you this much more after meeting you! You are an amazing woman!

I won't forget about you guys coming...going to hound you about it so get your plans together :)

Love you,
Jac

I am so glad you were able to get together with all your friends. And, I must say that having quads must be an excellent workout regiment because y'all are some of the hottest mamas I have seen! :)

Miss ya!

Hi there,
I've followed several of the "quad mama's" blogs for quite awhile now. After reading everyone's stories of your recent vacay, I was wondering if you have any information on the house where you guys stayed? Was it a personal friend of yours? Or is it open to the public? I'm in the process of planning a similar type weekend for my group of friends and LOVED the looks of that place. If you could email me with more information I would greatly appreciate it!
