Grandma and Papa came to visit!

Calvin had to work a double shift so I asked Grandma and Grandpa if they would want to come and keep us company. I am so glad they came because Mya ended up being sick. Ayden got to play outside with Grandpa alot and help him finish his playset. Grandma was also very helpful with the kids and house stuff, as usual! Mya had a virus with a high fever, a ear infection, and then had an allergic reaction to the 1st antibiotic. She is doing much better now. Thank goodness. Some of Mya's allergic reaction

A New Toy

Ayden got a new hand me down 4 wheeler. It has been great already. The only thing that we had to do was buy a new charger. It had a little bit of battery left when we brought it home. He got to take it for one ride and since then we have been waiting for the new charger to come in the mail. Ayden was so excited when it came. I think he was a little disappointed when we had to wait again for it to charge! Thanks Kristie and Matt for passing it along!! He has already learned how to push it out of the tricky spots!
He looks so serious here!
Notice the tongue!
This was his first ride!

The other day Calvin and I were both home for the day so we took the kids swimming at the neighbors. We had a great time. It is so nice to have such nice neighbors! Ayden, not so sure about the slide.

A Busy Labor Day Weekend

We went to Illinois for the weekend. We were actually home for 5 days which was really nice because Calvin hadn't been home in a while. We filled the weekend with many things as usual. These are some pics from Zayne Young and Isaac Burwell's shower, the kids playing, and my 10 year High School Reunion. We had a good but busy weekend. Mya

10th Annual NICU reunion

The NICU where I work has a reunion every year for the graduates from our unit. We also get invited and get to bring our families. The place is like a dream come true for little kids. They have games, animals, food, toys, jump houses, and more. It is so much fun to see the babies that we have taken care of as they get bigger too. Ayden riding the horsie!
