Family Fun Day

Spent a few fun hours at McWane Center this morning. Everyone enjoyed the regular attractions along with the added Holiday ones like the zip-line and super slide. Trying to squeeze out a few last visits before our Family Membership runs out on the 31st!!

Our one true Thanksgiving tradition is having the kids decorate the table runner/cloth/butcher block paper. They have drawn some wonderful turkeys, pilgrims, Mayflower and cornucopia’ over the years. While decorating Joseph had his newly built Lego creations and said, “Look Mom it’s not Legos and tutus it’s Legos and turkeys, you should  put this on your blog!!”  Ah the brainwashing of a child with a blogging Mama alas my plan has come together!!!

The Brothers Garrett had loads of fun at the Chelsea Color Dash 5K! This was Jordan’s first 5K and he did great even after coming off a week of having the stomach bug! What a fun friendly race for him.  Elijah finished 5th then Joseph for my competitive group. Morgan was Mr. Mingle and leisurely came in with his group of friends and then sweet Jordan. They had a blast and we were so thankful that the expected rain and cold weather had not blown in yet which made for great race weather!

Yep Strep!

Joseph started running fever, feeling faint, dizzy, super sore throat and all around full body aches. . . Great! He stayed home today along with Jordan who has the stomach bug which will just have to run its coarse and hopefully not spread throughout the whole family. So after a trip to the doctor and a throat culture he got the news. . . Yep it’s strep!! Uggg!!!!

So Mr. Joseph got a “this will make you not contagious in 24hours” shot in the tush plus an antibiotic. Daddy came home sick from his hunting-camping  trip along with an irritating bout of poison ivy so he’s on antibiotics, steroids for the poison ivy and special $10 bar of poison ivy soap! Poor Daddy! So hoping these viruses, colds, allergies and what-nots will not be hanging out at our home for long!
