Vacation Day 2

We had a rough night with Easton. I could tell he had fever and just didn't feel well. So, we sent everyone off to the beach and I went with him to a minute clinic.

Bless his heart, he felt terrible. His temp was 103 and he was just miserable. After seeing the doctor we left with amoxacillan for his ears. Yep, his ears....again. I decided since he seemed so pitiful to just hang in for the day with him. He slept off and on all day.

After getting some tylenol and a dose of medicine in him as well as a restful day, I decided he could handle going out to dinner. By looking at the picture below, you can't tell he even fells bad or had had such a rough day! Dinner was excellent!   We walked around for a bit trying to find exatly what we wanted to eat without a 2 hour wait. Plus, mom wanted fresh red snapper. I didnt care where we ate as long as there was food other than fish on the menu my group would be fine! We decided on a restaurant and it was very nice. They had homemade hush puppies with a raspberry butter and I had a salad with a watermelon vinagerette! Delicious!!!

(Nope, didn't eat here, but they played on their sign!)

Vacation 2016

Our vacation started off rocky since we left 5 hours later than planned. I just couldn't get it all done that day. I can't leave with a dirty house, and insisted on getting it clean. I also had all the packing to do and last minute store runs. John patiently waited once he got home from work and at 10:30 p.m. we were off for blissful days at the beach (or were we)?! We had hotel reservations but leaving as late as we did we knew we wouldn't make it as far. Our trip total time was 9 hours from home. I knew we wanted to get to the condo around lunch time so John drove all night! We stopped at 6 a.m. at a hotel, slept a few hours and then finished the drive. We arrived mid afternoon and hung out with everyone at the condo for a bit. We then decided to head to the beach. To say that the kids were excited is an understatement!

Everyone else had a big lunch and weren't very hungry so John went to get us CFA and some things at walmart. Two and a half hours later he returned.....
Apparently when you are in a small town everyone goes to Walmart on Saturday night because they need supplies too, who knew?!

Shopkins Party for Olivia

Seven, how in the world is she 7?!? We partied early this year because June 4th was the only available Saturday in June. So we hustled through the end of school and had a great early party! I had one week from the end of school until her party to get it together. She had a blast this year!!! I am SO proud of her. She really came out of her shell and opened her presents while her friends were there and blew out the candles after we sang Happy Birthday! She doesn't like attention directly on her, so I was surprised when she asked to open her presents. She got a ton of great stuff (now to find a place for it all!)!!
I still can't get over that she is 7!

Unfortunately, on our way to get the balloons Saturday she told me her ear hurt. I told her I couldn't do anything about it, and she seemed fine. On Sunday I decided that I would run her over to the doctor and since Easton was also snotty I would just get 2 appts because he probably had an ear infection as well. An hour later we left the doctors office with strep for Easton and an ear infection for both. I asked about her being swabbed and they said her throat wasn't red and she looked great. At 6 p.m. she told me she had a headache. That is her strep sign. I decided to go ahead and take her to an after hours clinic. Strep showed up quickly. I let all 30 of the kids parents know that both of my kids were sick. A few days later, 3 other kids had it. My kids never had fevers and didn't seem sick. It was crazy! I felt terrible for exposing that many people, but all the moms were very understanding.

Hello Summer!!

These are the days we wait for ALL year long. Summer is here and we are soaking it all up! Summer for us means pool/water time, family time, birthdays, vacation, enjoying friends, gardening, staying up late (and wearing mommy's t shirts to bed), picnics anywhere anytime, campfires with smores and much more!

Kindergarten Graduate

And just like that, kindergarten was over for our girl! She had a fantastic year with a great teacher! She can read beyond a kdg level (though she hates to read), and can solve addition and subtraction word problems as well as much more! She loves school and loves the friends she has made! I am so proud of her and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing her everyday, many times a day. If you look closely, she is wearing the same shirt for the first and last day! I love that she is so tiny!!

Olivia gets her cast off!

Well, I don't care what age you are, the thought of a saw (dull blade) coming at ya is scary! I showed her videos and told her it would be fine, and she did amazing!!! This happened on April 18th....yep, we fell a wee bit behind on blogging.

As soon as we left we got sweet ceces as a treat and then headed home to play! Her doctor said he could still see the break on her xray, but he wanted to get the elbow moving again. So she is out of a cast with limits.
