Well, we did it and I think we have started a new tradition!! We took the babies to their first Twins Day Festival. It was truly a blast. Josh and I thought it was so amazing the connection that complete strangers have. Everyone was so friendly and talkative...which is a stretch for me...hehehe. Okay if you know me at all you know I could probably talk to just about anyone. The weather was great...hot but there were a lot of trees so that really helped. There was a talent show, food trailers, craft vendors -the big girls got some really cute flip flops. There were also informative booths, support booths for things like TTTTS (twin to twin transfusion syndrome), they were even offering free Genetic Testing for zygocity. So many people had cameras and would ask to take a picture of the babies which would seem very uncomfortable in any other setting but there it was as normal as saying hello. We met twins from all over...Texas, New York, Pennsylvania, Michigan just to name a few. There were contests for most alike, most different, farthest traveled, oldest and youngest. It's hard to put into words how awesome an experience it is to see so many twins. I would definitely encourage anyone who has ever thought about going to do it. It is open to the public on Saturday and Sunday which is kicked off with a parade Saturday morning. Friday's festivities are just for registered twins/multiples. We loved it and as you can see from the video the babies were exhausted by the time we left.
