I forgot to finish by vacation story. I also forgot to mention that Isabel got sick immediately after we got home from the reunion. Fever, cough and apparently headaches. Only, poor baby, she didn't know what it was so she kept saying "I hurt my head!" I asked her how; "Did you bonk your head?" Eventually, I figured out what she meant. I had to force fever reducer into her one night (she hated me) but then the next night, she came to me and asked for more of it.
As she got better, Jake got sick. As Jake got better...I got sick. And still am, with a stupid, hacking, phlegmy thing going on in here. Lovely, huh?
Fourth of July Friday, Jake went with the 6 in-laws to the beach while Isabel, David and I stayed home. The day before at the beach was enough beach for me. Said like a true Floridian who takes beaches for granted.
That evening, David had to work. :( Yes, on July 4. My brother-in-law and Jake set off fireworks in front of our house that evening. After about 3, Isabel was over it.
(Just a picture of my house that evening, cause I love it!
Saturday = ZOO TIME! My in-laws ended up buying an annual pass from their state on-line, because it was cheaper than buying the tickets down here. The parks have reciprocity, so not only did they see our zoo, they got an annual family pass to their zoo.
Here are the girl cousins.
Juliette's face, far right below, CRACKS me up. Click the pics to make them bigger.
We came home, bathed and changed and went out to dinner at Chili's. Sunday they left very early in the a.m. for the 9+ hour drive back.
I went to work Monday all sick, because there was no way they would have believed me calling in sick after two weeks. They believed me when I walked in and spoke, believe you me.
