Snake Bird Watching

The kids love to walk down to the dock at the mail house and explore. One day we while visiting the dock there was a snake bird sitting on the edge carefully watching the kids. Of course they wanted to see how close they could get to him without him flying away. They finally decided to sit and watch him watch them for a few moments before he finally flew away.

Man Down!

Memorial Day was eventful, to say the least. After a busy hard play filled weekend at Grandma and Grandpa's Ian had a tough ride back. With about an hour and a half left in the travels, Ian was doubled over in his car seat writhing in pain. After arriving home, he had settled a bit, but then would occasionally double over again with the stomach pain returning. Of course things like this happen on a holiday when your pediatrician is closed, leaving no other choice than to run him up to the ER. Ian likes his firsts and since he had already experienced his first ER visit, he decided to top that with his first IV, x-ray and CAT scan. I've always taught him to go big or go home! He started feeling better after the fluids got into his system and began to perk up. Ian says he "had a tube in his arm giving him some apple juice." Appears, hard play and not taking the time to stop and rehydrate was the culprit. Just glad it wasn't an appendicitis, like the ER doctor was concerned with. Phew!!! Here are a couple pictures from his ER visit.
