Weekend Update...

It was a full week. 

Bebe Sister had a nice fall during library story time on Tuesday. Aside from a nasty-looking bump on her head and a bit of a black eye, she enjoyed her first bit of play dough. Luckily, Nana was around to supervise.

Poor T Rex had a high fever all week. I have a new, super cool Exergen thermometer so I was able to quickly and easily monitor his temperature. It stayed around 105 degrees F for four days, then dropped to 101. By day 6 it was around 100 and then he developed a rash on his neck and back. The rash progressed to the rest of his trunk and then to the extremities. By day seven he was nearly rash free and was without a fever for 24 hours. Aside from wanting to lay around and demanding lots of snuggles, he was a pretty good sport.

My mom was here to help for a couple days this week so I could get some canning, cleaning, and chores done. I am trying to prepare for T Rex Dad's vacation. It's actually a "stay-cation" but I'd really like for us to not have to spend his entire time off having a Soviet holiday. I also wrote out the list of remaining projects I hope to accomplish the remainder of my summer break - it is two pages long. Hence, my lack of presence online all that often.

We did watch a lot of baseball. My nephew's team was participating in a tournament just up the street about a mile away so I carted the kids in the bike trailer to several of the games. T Rex Dad joined us when he could. 

Ready to embark.
On base.
My brother-in-law offering some last minute coaching to my nephew, who was pitching, and the catcher. Yes, the photo was taken through the fence.
Some of that pitching action.
T Rex snuggling his Dad during one of the games.
Look at how this little girl took her daddy's arm during the game.
After all that excitement, we had to end the weekend with some quiet outdoor time. The kids enjoyed some garage sale finds from a couple weeks ago. Yes, our daughter plays with a lot of "boy" toys because of her big brother. But she loves it - tractors, cars, and she even had her first trike lesson this week too. But more on that later this week.

Don't forget the 400th posting giveaway is still going on. Go check it out and you could win something fun.

How about you? Did you have a good week?

Poor babies! I'm glad T Rex is feeling better! Did you find out what it was? My kids are really prone to getting scarlet fever. We've had it in our house at least seven times now. Every time a rash is involved we always assume scarlet fever, but the last time it was an allergic reaction to a prescription!
I hope you and TR Dad get to enjoy the staycation!

We finally got a bike trailer too! Now we have to figure it out! LOL
I love your little gal and her daddy - such sweet trust! :)

If either of my boys had a temp of 105 I think I would faint! =) I am so glad he's better!

And I LOVE the new pic for your header! Just adorable! I can't believe how big they are both getting!

That looks like it was quite a day! My girl loves cars and trucks, too. I'm not sure if it is just because of her brother though. She certainly mastered the scooter and the bike a lot quicker than her brother.

105 would have scared the crap out of me. I guess because your a medical professional you know what to do and look for. And poor little sister. Naveen is entering that stage and it is awful every single time.

You must have been so nervous. I'm very happy that T-Rex is much better. How scary for you.

Watching baseball is always fun. The bike trailer looks like a blast for the kids.
