It has been a couple of days since I blogged, and I just wanted to let you all know that I have not grown bored and quit (I do that sometimes), but I have been sick, and now is the first time I have felt good enough to blog. Let's just say that you don't want me to describe how I was sick, I will say that it required lots of bathroom cleaning in the aftermath and leave it at that. :)
The fam had a good weekend. We went to Coonskin park and Cam played with Hailey on the playground and then we all walked around the lake. We tried to feed the ducks, but they were already full and annoyed by people hitting them with bread, so Cam, Max (in the stroller), and I followed Hailey around while she screamed "duckies." Strangely, this did not make them want to come near us, to Hailey's disappointment. My favorite part of the day was when we got to the dock and Hailey tried to jump in the water. I stopped her, but then she tried to take her clothes off (that is why she thought I wouldn't let her get in.) It was very hard to explain to Hailey that the water was yucky and we do not swim in yucky lakes, while trying to not laugh because she was very cute and serious. It was a good day, and though Hailey got her first two outside boo-boos of the season and Max slept through the whole thing, I loved it and can't wait to do it again!

I HAVE to get my kids in swimming lessons because that will be Emma, she thought she could swim last year and now that she’s better able to get around I have a huge fear of her taking off into the water! That reminds me, better call the Y.

I’m sorry you’ve been sick! I have been too but only sinuses. No, ahem, bathroom cleaning required! LOL! Glad you feel better!

BTW, can I use this to RSVP to Hailey’s party? We’re coming but may be a bit late, my MIL’s yard sale day at her subdivision is there and I have to sell there, it’s HUGE. Plus I’m hoping to break away and check out the other sales for summer clothes for kids!

I can just imagine her trying to take off her clothes...yeah like that was the only reason she couldn't go in!!

And Andrea I freaking told you to take swimming lessons but noooooo Church was more important. Phooey!

I'm so happy you're back! I missed reading about the exploits of the Peterson family! So far, only Jonathan has been sick and not the type you are describing, so keep your fingers crossed that our trip is illness free!!
