Gone fishin'

...well not exactly.... Last weekend Michael's brother and his wife and kids came up to visit us during their spring break. On Saturday we went to Paint Creek. We brought several items to feed the fish that live in the creek. We only bothered a few fishermen during our adventures. And the real miracle: no one fell in.
Skipping stones is a talent I do not have. Neither do our children or our nieces and nephew, but they are all great rock throwing champions! We took a break from the whose-rock-can-make-the-biggest-splash contest to pose for some family pictures.
First them, then us.
As I mentioned, the true miracle was that no one fell in, especially when the older four clamored over to this rock together.
Since AJ was not allowed to join them, she got to pose for her own picture.
All in all, we had a great time, and it's a good thing we did. The next day DJ got sick. He had a stomach thing for three days, and then Wednesday evening AJ got it. We sent BIL & family off Monday morning with the wish that none of them get it. So far, so good (knock on wood). AJ's still sick, and I took her to the pediatrician's office earlier today. After some Pedialyte ice pops and some anti-nausea topical ointment to rub between her wrists, she demanded pizza, chicken nuggets, tomato soup, and spaghetti with sausage. I suppose she's finally feeling better, praise God, but she had to make due with some plain spaghetti instead. We'll see how she's doing when she wakes up from her nap.

In the meantime, my MIL & FIL are in town this weekend, and are with Michael and DJ at the Easter Egg hunt up at church. I feel so bad that AJ's missing it, but it is damp and chilly out today, so I'm very glad we got her in for a nap when we did. Well, I've got a stampin' related post to get up today too, so brb.

Sweet wishes!
