We had plans to go see cousin Weston and help him celebrate his 3rd birthday last weekend. We were all pretty excited b/c it had been awhile since we had gotten to go visit. Plus Cousin Dionna and Ron were lending us a lot of little boy things to use with baby Drew!
Turns out Conroe's hotels were all booked b/c of some car conference in town so we had originally had to get a hotel in Montgomery over 45 minutes south of Dionna's house. But Uncle Danny rescued us and got us a cabin at the Silverleaf resort for FREE!!! Plus it was literally only 10 minutes from Dee's house. Sweet! What a blessing.
We were all on cloud 9 looking forward to an awesome weekend, when on Friday at 2 pm the school nurse called. Carli had a low grade fever and a red throat! NOOOOO!!! Off we went to pick her up and literally walked into the doctor's office and refused to leave until a doctor, we didn't care who, saw us and did a strep test. Bless our pediatrician's heart. We waited just an hour (not bad for a walk-in on a Friday afternoon) and were seen. I almost walked out and went home b/c Carli did not have a fever any longer and was literally bouncing off the walls. But we stuck it out. They did a strep test. The doc came in and said you know, I really thought it was allergies b/c she had no fever, or white spots on her throat but her strep test is a raging positive...again. :( We were pretty bummed b/c it seemed like our planned wkd was doomed. But the pedi said we caught it so early that if we got her the antibiotics ASAP she would be confident in letting us go ahead to the party which was scheduled for 3 the next day. Done!!
We loaded up Saturday morning and were off. We made a stop at Ava's favorite donut shop for her blue Elsa donut, stopped by and gave Pa some farewell kisses and hit the road!
We made really good time and met Dionna and crew at the park and were able to help them set up for the party. The girls had a blast! Carli spent a lot of time pulling the smaller kids in Weston's new wagon and Ava loved playing with the bubbles.
And of coarse, who doesn't love cake and cupcakes?! How cute is this three year old?!
There was another group having a get together under the pavilion and Carli and Ava made a new friend. While we were helping clean up, they were investigating the pond with their friend and found a duck egg. Which I'm pretty sure will never hatch now...
After the party we went and got checked in at our cabin and met up with Dionna and crew for some dinner. Ah, just love these kids...
The girls had a blast at the cabin. They had their own room and it had it's own TV. They let Keith and I sleep til 8:30 b/c they just laid in bed and watched Disney Sunday morning! :) After church, we enjoyed a yummy lunch at Five Guys Burgers with Dionna, Ron, Weston, Aunt Betty and Uncle Cleaon.
