Memorial Day Week-end

Happy Memorial Day! We are so thankful to all of those, past and present, who have served our country.

Poor Devin's ears are really giving him a rough go at it lately. He has had fluid in his ears pretty much since November and most recently earaches and hearing loss. (We are awaiting an appointment at Mass Eye and Ear in June.) After a rough Friday night with Devin crying...alot...because of his earache, I headed to the pediatrician with him on Saturday morning. The doc gave him another prescription and with some added Motrin and ear drops he was able to enjoy his week-end. (This kid has a medicine box bigger than mine and Erick's combined!)

Saturday afternoon we went to my cousin's son's 11th birthday. It was at a Rec Center so the kids played basketball and went on the playground outside. Simple, but the kids LOVED it!

Here's Devin and Nadya shooting hoops.
Skya on the slide...she loved this!

Me and Skya watching the kids play ball.
On Sunday we went to a BBQ at our good friend's Kim and Chris. We had such a nice time with good people and good food. The kids ran around in the backyard- playing and swimming. Such a relaxing, enjoyable afternoon.

We were all surprised when little Lexie wanted Erick to hold her and put her to sleep. It did melt our hearts too!
I love this picture of Devin on the steps to the pool.

On Monday we stayed home to do laundry, relax, and let Devin take his first dip of the year in the pool at our house. Most of that worked out- the fire alarms started blaring mid-morning. I was ready to haul out of here with the kid in one hand and the cat in the other!! We finally figured out that the washing machine engine was dying- causing smoke and that dreadful dead engine smell. I've order our new one, but it won't be here until next Wednesday. There will be a lot of laundry to do by then!!

Here is Devin swimming a lap across the pool with Erick. (Note he is in the 8ft section here.)

We ended the long week-end relaxing with a movie. Ahhhh, only 15 work days left until summer vacation!
