Pumpkin Patch

Everyday on our way home from school we drive past the Pick of the Patch Pumpkin Patch.  The kids ask everyday when we are going to go there.  It is full of bouncy houses, a HUGE tiger slide, and an inflatable obstical course with a huge dinosaur on it.  Who wouldn't want to go there.  Haha!

Last week we told the kids that we would go today and they have been looking forward to it all week.  Michelle has been telling us that Lincoln talks about it everyday.  And everyday Austin asks if we are going "this day".

They had a blast!  They LOVED the tiger slide, it took Austin a bit to find the courage to go down it but he did.  They also enjoyed the obstical course,  Austin wasn't sure about the part where you have to "squeeze through" but with some coaxing from Lincoln he made it through.

We had a great time!  These are the pictures from my phone.  I will have to take a peek at the ones on my camera.

On the mend.

Payton has been on antibiotics for 24 hours now and boy do antibiotics make a difference.  She is feeling so much better.  Thank goodness!

She took a nice long bath this morning.  Her rash still looks pretty bad and is pretty itchy.  We love Benadryl!  So thankful she is on the road to recovery.

Strep with a side of Scarlet Fever

Payton has been home sick all week with a low fever and a sore throat.  Poor thing.

Last night she developed a little rash on her chest and back.  Then this morning while we were waiting in the waiting room to get my blood drawn her rash started spreading and within an hour covered her whole body.  

Fortunately, the doctor was able get her in quickly.  It turns out Payton has Strep Throat AND Scarlet Fever!  Yikes!

So grateful that she can be treated with antibiotics and that the doctor predicts she will be back to normal very soon.

Love our little girl.

Spider Hat

I just love these spider hats, I wish I would have kept Payton and Lincoln's from when they were going to Busy Bees Preschool.  Maybe I can track down the pictures for a comparison.  So cute!

Austin Strikes Again

Austin decided to try standing on a ball and fell face first into a table.  OUCH!

The good news is that he didn't knock a tooth out and that he didn't break a tooth.  The bad news is that his lip wasn't huge and scraped up meaning that the force of the fall went full on to his gums.  Now we are in a waiting game, will his teeth stay white and normal or will they turn dark?  If they turn dark the Dentist recommended root canals.  Yikes!

I am hoping they just stay white.  :o)
