Happy Birthday – Four Times
SLEEPY EYE, Minn. (AP) — The Sleepy Eye quads have returned to their childhood home to celebrate their 65th birthday.
On Saturday the Seifert quads — Marie, Martha, Michael and Monica — celebrated at the 300-acre farm about seven miles southeast of Sleepy Eye.
The quadruplets were a sensation when they were born in 1950. The Free Press of Mankato reports strangers would drive to the farm and gawk at the four cribs lined up in the open porch.
At the Minnesota State Fair, visitors would pay a quarter to watch the three girls and boy play and sleep.
The quads had six siblings. All but one of the siblings — the oldest, an 82-year-old — made it out to the farm.
Of the quads, three live in Minnesota while one lives in Colorado.
