What a Weekend.

Well, I hope you all had a great 4th of July! We spent so much time together this weekend that I think the kids thought we were losing our minds :oP We started off Thursday with a sick Piper. Not fun. She was crying saying her head hurt and then I gave her tylenol and she layed on my lap...then I could just tell....yep, she started throwing up. Only 4 times, but I made it to the kitchen floor before she started-hey, much easier cleanup than the carpet. But she did throw up on me...bleh. So, I cleaned up the kitchen and then I jumped in the shower...Jenna was here, so I did text her mom and she said it was ok. I really think Piper had a headache. Poor girl. I made a pallet on the living room floor for her9and me-you know easier to clean a blanket than the carpet)and she layed on it and had a bowl ready while she watched tv a bit. She did fine the rest of the day. I did have to make a call to a friend that we were not going to be able to go to her fireworks show and BBQ that night-I didn't think heat, a pool and Piper should be mixed, call me crazy! So, she said she could pick up Logan(his friend is her son) and I thought that sounded great-why ruin everyones night? Daniel, Dawson and Gabi were going to ball practice and then swimming at the coaches house. Around 10 that night, I texted her and told her Daniel was on his way and she called and said there had been an accident. Logan was apparently LIGHTING FIREWORKS and a roman candle blew up in his face. He was not crying until he got on the phone with me and then he was hysterical. I did not have any idea that the children would be lighting fireworks. We have only let our children light sparklers. I didn't ask, I should have but really never crossed my mind that all parents are not as cautious as me(I tend to be overly with fireworks as I myself am/have always been scared to death of them-I used to hide in that tiny spot behind/under the toilet on the 4th of July every year.)When Daniel picked him up many adults there had been drinking. Not cool. If you are going to let my kiddo light fireworks, please dont drink. Major lesson learned-not everyone(even those i very much trust)parent the way I do. We did take Logan to the ER that night. Corneal abrasions and a small burn on his nose. He is fine. He did say it taught him how serious fireworks are! Lessons learned for everyone.
On Friday, we got up and went to the store and got yummies for the pool. We went to the pool and swam for about 4 hours-ok, I layed by the baby pool watching the smallest of our crew play. It was a lot of fun. Then we came home fornap time and we finished watching the Astronaut Farmer and then watched Flicka. LOVED Flicka. It was so very good. Then we got around and went and played putt-putt. Piper was hysterical out there...she would putt the first time and then maybe one more and then look around and pick up her PINK ball and then put it in the hole and scream YAY!!! Adorable...We had so much fun. Gabi got 3 hole in 1's and I got 2. I took a bunch of pictures that I will have to upload soon. Then we went downtown and watched the fireworks-not as good as years before, but that is ok. Piper was again, hysterical. AS the 1st firework went off, she screamed, got in the van, covered her WHOLE body with her blankie and would not come out! We asked her if they were pretty and she said I think so!!!! Traffic was a nightmare getting out of there and then some guy tried to stand in front of our van to get his family out-um, like they were stuck behind about 10 other cars...wait your turn. People are just so lazy it kills me. A car in front of us just kept sitting and sitting and then the family comes over ans starts loading all of the things. ugh. Drove though McD's and went home and ate. Slept in on Sat, decided not to swim and did nothing-Daniel stayed in bed all day watching tv-he deserves it, he works hard all week for us and well, I did house work-not much, but some. I had to work last night and they had a birthday party for a little girl we know who is turning one and so my poor hubby had that duty-I was told it was a tea party and well, it was not. It was to start at 6 and then when he got there, found out it was a BBQ and all of them were drinking-sense a common thread here? I don't have a problem with people drinking, but it was a 1 year old birthday party??? My children were invited. Daniel called and poor guy knew no one but the mom and dad. I felt so bad. They then picked me up and I ran in at Dillon's because Piper needed soy milk and I picked up donuts for this mornings breakfast. We got up-a tad late, because my hubby and I stayed up and watched a movie-went to church and then came home, I made lunch and we went and swam for a couple of hours. Came home rested, I went to work and Daniel took Dawson to ball practice....
I need to go to bed. I get in a habit of staying up late and I can't get up in the am...not a good habit since all of the kids think 7 is sleeping in!!!

Wow, what a weekend. I'm glad Logan's injury wasn't worse, poor thing. Hope all is going well this week. See you Saturday!
