The other day I took the kids to the pet store to look at the animals.
This may sound lame, but it's a super fun and FREE outing.
This time it didn't end up being free because we came home with a little something.....
We named him Old Blue (okay, I named him that... after the old guy in the movie Old School). He's a Beta Fish, and quite pretty if you ask me. Our track record with fish isn't great, but I figure these guys are pretty hardy, so hopefully he'll survive for a while. Is it odd that I'm using him as a centerpeice on my dining room table?
Poor Ethan came down with a nasty bug on Friday night. He woke up at 3:00 am with a croup-like cough and couldn't breathe. He then had a fever and cough for two days and didn't get off the couch hardly at all. Thank goodness for cartoons!! Today he's still feeling icky but at least his fever is gone. He has no energy. The poor little guy asked to go to bed at noon :( I think this is the sickest he's ever been. The one kind of selfish and positive thing about about him being sick is how calm our house has been since all he's done is lay on the couch. Sadly him being sick has almost felt relaxing for me. Hopefully no one else gets this nasty bug!!! (well, scratch the no fever thing, after posting this he woke up from his nap with his fever back... 102... poor buddy)
Matt spent the weekend in the backyard.... He looks excited doesn't he? hehe.
Mostly he didn't want his picture taken after working all day.
It's dirty out there.
He is in the process …
The other evening we were all eating dinner outside together. Alayna went in to use the restroom and came out sans clothes. She immediately hopped onto her scooter for a little ride. She enjoys being in the buff, lol. Silly girl.
Gotta love this one of Ethan running and laughing and Alayna chasing him... in the buff, lol.
My crazy free girl!
Must be nice, huh???
