Kalahari--day three

Unfortunately, my poor little boy got sick Wednesday night and had a fever of 101. Luckily, Kelly had children's motrin which works much better on his fevers than Tylenol. He slept (tossed and turned) in bed with me and we both managed to get a little bit of sleep. His fever broke shortly after he woke up in the morning. We had planned to stay at Kalahari and play for a while after check-out, but our plans to go to my aunt and uncle's changed (my aunt got sick) so we drove to Gramma and Grandad's instead. We left right after checkout and Andrew slept on and off for the first 4 hours of the trip. When we finally stopped to eat at 4:00, his fever had spiked again to 102. Within 15 minutes of taking more Motrin, it was back down to 99.
We have an appt with my parents' dr. tomorrow. I'm worried about an ear infection since his ear plugs kept falling out and I eventually lost one of them. I kept him out of the water after that, but I'm still worried.

Passed out in his carseat with Manny, Lovey and his sippy cup--his constant companions.

I don't often get to drive through PA in the summer. It's so beautiful when everything is green. It was hard to get good pictures of the mountains as I was driving, but I managed to get a couple.

These farms are everywhere--tucked in between the mountains.

I love how you can see the shadows from the clouds on the mountains in these pictures.

Kalahari--day two

Andrew is boycotting sleep and his ear plugs won't stay in, but we're still having a GREAT time! It's so fun being here with our friends and seeing everyone in 'real life'.

Aren't Andrew and Devon adorable together?

Today is Rich's 40th birthday and he chose to spend it with all of us. :) We had a Fiesta in our room tonight in honor of his birthday. There were Guatetots everywhere and it was a LOT of fun. Our friend, Nikki, even came up to join us for the day with her 4 kids.

Tara and Devon:

My handsome boy.

Beautiful Kemry.

A gift from the Summer Sisters.

Curly had to hold his own pinata since there was no place to hang it.

We didn't have a stick, so the kids hit it with a pasta fork!

The mad dash for the candy:

Andrew has never had candy and had no idea what everyone was fighting for. He came away with the pasta fork and thought he had hit the jackpot. lol

Kalahari--day one

Today, we drove to the Kalahari Waterpark to meet some of our Guatemalan friends. Andrew is loving the water but is not too keen on sharing mommy's attention with other kids. :) He loves putting his head under the water and is a total daredevil on the slides. We're here with the Silly Santillis; the Cash Crew (plus Kasey and Alex!); Marcy, Bryce, Sofie and Carrigan; and Sheri, Eliot and Curtis.

Showing off his hat (which he will only wear indoors):

Having a pizza party with all of our friends:

Doesn't this look like fun?

A new friend

Today, we went to the zoo with our new friends, Megan and Mason. The boys liked looking at the animals but they LOVED playing on the playground equipment. Guess we could have just met at the park. :)

Aren't they cute?

I love to slide!

Proof that we were at the zoo. lol
