It's been a busy few days, I actually started this post last night but a sick little girl took priority, so I'm gonna make this quick and try to let the pics tell the story.
Friday we took Natalie to the Botanical Gardens. The flowers there are so pretty.
This time of year they have a butterfly house, which is where we spent the majority of our time.
Looking at the turtles:
That afternoon, John's younger brother came in from out of town. We hadn't seen him since just right after Christmas, so we spent some time hanging out with family and then going to dinner.
I spent Friday evening scrapping with friends and on Saturday, Telah, Kim, and I celebrated National Scrapbook Day with a road trip to Scrap, Etc. (Yes, there is a National Holiday for Scrapbookers. ) We all spent too much money, and now need to get busy using all the stuff we bought.
When I got back into town, I went to get Natalie at my Mom and Dad's and that's when the real fun began. (The following may not be for the squeamish). On the way home, just maybe 2 minutes from our house, Natalie started throwing up. This would be my first experience with this and her first time being sick like this. I never in my life would think her little stomach could hold what all came out. There was lots and lots of raisins mixed in (I warned you this was gross lol), so I immediately assumed she had just eaten way too many. Got her home, stripped down, in the tub, car cleaned out, car seat cover in the wash, thinking how well I handled all of that. It's amazing how you go n autopilot when it's your own kid. Anybody else and I would have been puking right along with them. Then I realized she felt really hot and discovered she was running fever. So Saturday night and Sunday were spent taking care of a sick kiddo. She is doing much better today, so now I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that neither John or I get sick.
