Sorry I've been gone...

Our whole house has been under started with me last Tuesday...I had a cough that developed into bronchitus and pneumonia.  Soon after I had a diagnosis, Nik was feeling ill and was told he had pneumonia.  Through the weekend we had helpers come help us with the kids, as we were fevering, coughing and really were in no shape to tend to small children.  Monday of this week, I thought we were in the clear and then Dougie started with a low-grade fever.  The Dr. didn't even request an xray, she just put him on anti-biotics.

We're keeping our doctor and our small town pharmacy in business this week.  Anti-biotics, inhalers, cough drops, cough syrup and anything else you can imagine we might need to feel better around here.

I believe we are almost in the clear...just waiting for Kate to start fevering...if she does, we know the drill.

This is what life is all about...

This morning I let Nik sleep in (okay, really - he won at rock, paper, scissors for the opportunity to sleep in) and when he woke up I informed him that IT WAS NOT RAINING. I packed up the kids and some lunch and we drove to York Beach (Short Sands) to check out the new playground they put in. The smile on my kids faces, that's what life is about!

We're trying to teach Dougie how to swing himself, he LOVES the swings!

It was bright for Kate, she needs some sun glasses!

The slide was really tall!

Playin' in the ocean.

We had such a good morning! Playground, lunch on the beach, walk on the beach, the arcade, and then we each got a special treat at The Goldenrod. Came home, before the rain and the kids everyone had a nap!

Our new swing set comes next week!
