A great weekend.

Well the boys stayed home from school on Friday and I did get a call today that Coltan does not have Mono. But the other test results aren't in yet. I will probably have them late afternoon or tomorrow morning. Saturday I decided to get all of us out of the house, I'm just tired of sitting around everyday so thought what the heck. We ended up going to the train show down at American Royal. Not as exciting as I thought it would be but Carson was in heaven. They only had about 8 trains set up and then the other 80% of the exhibits was people selling stuff. I did however buy Carson a train whistle with Thomas the Train and I bought him a really cool lunch box with a Thomas the train cup with straw in it. I'm thinking how exciting it could be to make our lunch and put it in the Thomas the Train and eat it. Doesn't that sound like a great bribe to you?

After that, we left and went to Fritz and Co. I will post those pictures tomorrow since I have a lot between the two. Carson ate a whole hot dog and some french fries. I couldn't believe my eyes.

So Saturday night I decided to go out for a bit. Yes, I left my house without my kids and it felt great. Since I have some followers that shouldn't be here, I will elaborate later. I was home in time for his 12:30AM feeding so it wasn't like I was out all night. But to that special someone, thanks for giving me some wonderful adult conversation and making my Saturday night very special. I had a great time. Looking forward to it again soon.

Here are the pictures of us at the train show. Carson actually fell asleep in the car and we let him sleep until we got inside the show. Coltan and Cody ready to have some fun.......thanks for going with us and acting like you had a good time. They told me that the caramel popcorn was the highlight of the show. I understood completely. I only wish they had more trains set up for us to watch.

Carson showing everyone that he brought his own train.

Watching the train and still holding his own.

Carson acting like a ham.

I took this picture because it reminded me of my Grandfather. When I was growing up he owned several gas stations. (YOU KNOW, WHEN GAS WAS UNDER A BUCK!!!). I spent a lot of time in the stations, running tows with him, and playing in the service bay. I would ride up and down with the cars but I didn't get to come down until they were done working on the car. It was a great way for my Grandpa to watch me while I was with him. LOL

Here is another pic of mommy and Carson.

I am so glad you got some alone time. You deserve it. Tell those people that don't belong in your business to butt out, and if they'd like to clear their schedule through you then you'll do the same with them! A mom has to take care of herself in order to take care of her kids.
Glad to hear Carson ate so well! Keep it up big guy!
We will be in radiology from 8am till who knows what time and then Pulmonology at 11! Maybe we'll see you. We are going to stay at Ronald McDonald on Tuesday night since they are calling for more snow and we have to be there bright and early.
Take care!

So cool, I have a thomas train material that I'm making his blankie with, he's going to love it.

I am so glad you got some time to yourself and that you got to get away for a bit with the boys! Good for you. Those people that should not be in your business need to butt out...they make it hard to live like you want! I loved our night away-it helps to rejuvenate yourself. Especially you stuck at home with a little man who wants to be better! Hang in there.

I am so freaking out that Carson ate so much! Way to go Carson!!!! YIPEE!!! Rachel is so proud of you for eating your entire hot dog and some fries!

Now onto your outing with your "friend"...I'm loving it! You go girl. Get out there FOR ONCE and enjoy the hell out of yourself. One night without Carson for just a few hours is good for both of you. That makes you a better mother, in my opionion, and refreshes you!

I cant wait to hear the details since we didnt get to talk this weekend.'s nice to see a picture of you and Carson since you are always the one behind the camera. It is a great picture of you two.

I love the pics... so cute! Well I took your idea about taking back the camera and they wouldn't return it since I've opened it and used it. Oh well hopefully I can get a new one sometime soon.

I am also so happy that you got to have some adult time. I can't wait to hear more about that someone special! Loves...

Good for you! Glad to hear you were able to get out of the house for awhile. That always helps you regroup. Looks like Carson was having a blast at the train station and how sweet of his brothers to have fun with him. What a wonderful family you have.

I am glad you had a great weekend. You deserve it!

Wow, a whole hotdog? Awesome!! Maybe the lunchbox will help encourage him too. :)

And I'm so glad you found a few hours to just be yourself without having to be a caregiver for a bit. :)
