Weekend in Review...4th of July edition

Well, we had a fun filled weekend, and it's still going strong here on this Monday evening... sort of :) Unfortunately I got sick on Saturday and still don't feel 100%, so our plans of running around rampant this weekend were pretty much halted. Here's the 411 on how this weekend went down:

Friday, Brayden decided to start the weekend out with a bang... literally. I was sitting at the computer responding to some emails while eating my lunch (yes, I multitask-- you have to when you have a toddler). I heard Brayden fall, and knew it was a bad one. He started screaming, so I jumped up and scooped him up in my arms. When he screamed the second wind, I freaked. He had blood pooling in his mouth and I had no idea where it was coming from. It was all over my arms, my shirt... everywhere. And unfortunately for me, Drew had just left for study group, so I was left to fend for myself. I called Drew frantic, and thankfully he was able to calm me down enough for me to get my grip together and figure out what happened. From what I could tell, little B-man hit his lip and bit off the very tip of it. I got him to suck on some ice to slow down the bleeding, and gave him lots of hugs. It was his first BIG boo-boo, and a definite YES to the fact that I freak when I see blood.

Friday evening we set out to the pool and then to a Friday festival that one of our local towns has every first friday. We had a LOT of fun, strolling around chasing Brayden. One of the groups there was giving away free bags of Cheez-Its... Brayden was in HEAVEN.
This is in the middle of the downtown square. I thought it was neat how they put American flags around the statue.
Umm, hello. When did my baby turn into a little boy?! Gah. They grow up SO fast!
Just like his momma... loves to people watch!

Saturday I woke up with a sore throat, but didn't think much of it. We headed to a birthday party, which was also a swim party, but it started going down hill at the party. I chose not to go swimming since the water was so cold, which was probably the best decision I could have made. By about 1 hour into the party, I was ready to go home. I felt flu-like, and was tired of chasing Brayden around. We came home at noon, I crawled into bed and stayed there for the rest of the day. I ran a low grade fever, had the sore throat, felt chilled then burning up... basically I felt like POO POO. I was thankful for Drew being home so he could be Mr. Mom, and he was a good Mr. Mom too. Poor Drew had to deal with a fussy toddler most of the afternoon, plus deal with getting me Gatorade, chicken noodle soup and anything else I needed, since getting out of bed was even a tough feat for me.

Sunday I woke up feeling ALOT better, but we decided to lay low and not go to church. We headed up to my Aunt and Uncle's house around 11:30, and spent a majority of the day over there spending time with their family. I forgot my camera, and am so bummed because there were some cute moments with Brayden and our cousins. He LOVES going over there because the 4 girls just dote on him the whole time.

Today I woke up still feeling a bit yucky with my sinus stuff, but we decided to attempt picking some blackberries this morning at a patch we had found a few months ago. It was HOT and HUMID, so I only lasted about an hour (Brayden screamed pretty much the whole time, which was no fun for any of us). We got close to a gallon of blackberries, and are looking forward to making some blackberry cobbler soon :) The rest of the day we just chilled, took naps and then capped the long weekend off with a trip to our favorite local Mexican restaurant for fajitas.

I will probably be laying low this weekend trying to kick whatever my body is fighting to the curb. Plus, Brayden's eyes have started getting green gook again, so I am worried that the antibiotics aren't working completely, so I want to not overdo it for him either. Hope everyone has a good week!
