I'm back!

We got back from vacation last night and I'm glad to be home. The weather is beautiful here. Let me just thank all of you that were praying for me to feel better before we left. God answered those prayers. We were leaving at 7 a.m. Friday morning and as of Thursday night it wasn't good. I was so sick and Mark was seriously wondering if I should even go. It was hurting when I took a breathe and I was wondering if it was turning into pneumonia. I woke up Friday though and I felt quite a bit better so we took off.
We had a good day of travel and everyone did a good job of not fighting in the back seat!

Saturday we went to the Creation Museum. Here are some pictures:

Here are the kids in the Garden Of Eden:

Here is Noah- building the ark:

This was a path out back in the botanical garden:

We would not recommend going here over Spring Break. It was absolute chaos. There were a number of large groups there also and it was just so many people.
The kids had a good time seeing the dinosaurs and they liked the Ark and the Garden of Eden.

We took a little detour on the way home and stopped at IKEA. I love to look around there so that was fun.

However, now that we're home- I'll show you what I'm doing:

Yes my poor little bun is sick. Last night she had 103 fever with Tylenol so I had to alternate Tylenol and Motrin to get it down. It's killing me that it's so beautiful outside and she's sick and can't enjoy it! I hope this doesn't last long and that Arianna, Nick and Mark don't get it! Seeing I've got my hands a little full here, I hope you'll pardon me if I'm not as diligent about posting every day.
Have a great day!

Welcome Home!

I am sorry the Museum was crowded---you'd get use to crowds living in Japan. :)

I am glad you are feeling better and we'll pray your little one will be back to herself in no time too!

Rest up!

Cheri, I am so glad that you enjoyed your trip and that you were well enough to enjoy it.

I am sorry that your little one is sick. I surely hope that it doesn't go through your family.

Glad that you are feeling better but what's up with Halle now? I hope she gets better quick so she can enjoy it outside!!

Jennifer said...

I hope Halle is feeling better soon it is too nice to be inside on the couch today.

Glad you are back. I dread crowds, especially with kiddos. :(

Sorry she isn't feeling well. Hope she is back to 100% ASAP!

Chad and Tammy said...

I'm glad you had a nice trip. We'd love to go there sometime. I hope Halle is feeling better very soon. What a bummer to be sick over Spring Break! :(

I'm glad you are feeling better and that vacation was fun for you! I'm not so glad that Halle is sick! Praying that the rest of the family doesn't get it too!

Glad you had a good trip, but so sorry about Halle! I have to tell you Tylenol is like a placebo to me. It just doesn't do what motrin does! Hope she's up and around soon, and that kleenex picture is priceless!

Karen said...

What a great place! Sorry to hear you've not been feeling too great and now your wee girl - get well soon guys!

Nancy said...

Glad you feel better but sad your little one is sick..
Sorry the Creation museum was so crowded, we must have gone at just the right time not to many people at all. Hope you enjoyed it anyway

Abby and Reese said...

That looks like so much fun! I hope she feels better soon.

I've been wanting to go to that museum for a long time. Too bad it's way up north, and I'm way down south.
Hope everyone in your family is feeling better.

I've never heard of the creation museum. Looks like a neat place to visit.
