one more day

Well yesterday had it's ups and downs. We started off getting up at the wonderful time of 3:00AM and since we were up, I decided that we would get ready and go to church. Since it was my mother's birthday, we decided to go with her to her church and not mine. It was really cute because Carson is really excited when we do go to church and when we got there he looked at me and said "mommy, new church"? I told him that we were going to Gra Gra's church and he kept saying different church. So he knew we weren't at "HIS" church.

After church, my step dad, aunt Tammy and us took my mom out to an early lunch at Cracker Barrel. Everyone seemed to have a great time. Then my mom was off to watch my niece play some soccer.

Carson and I were on our way home and since I live next door to Lake Jacomo and it was still fairly nice day, we decided to drive around the lake and see if we could find any ducks or geese to feed. We didn't see any but did find a slide and Carson really got excited so I thought what the heck. We went to the playground but it was a little windy so we only stayed for about 15 minutes. While there, I could tell Carson wasn't feeling well and he told me he was sick. I asked him what was wrong and he pointed to his head. I then felt him and he was burning up so off to the house we went. He ended up going to sleep by 3PM and then woke up around 1:00AM. That much sleep......I know the kid is sick!

He went back to sleep around 8:00AM and then woke up around noon . I didn't do much today just because I'm still exhausted from our "fun" sleeping schedule. The boys came home from school and played outside for a while. I ended up making Beef Stroganoff and now two of my boys are in bed. Anyone want to guess which child is still up???

Last bit of news, I just wanted to tell my dear friend AMY from Kaden and Angel Ava congrats on her newest arrival. I know that Nate, Amy, Kaden, and Baby Brody are all doing well and I'm just so honored to get to know such a wonderful family and get to watch her beautiful journey. Amy, I'm so happy for you!! I cannot wait to see him.

Here is the view from the playground of Lake Jacomo. I can't wait to go back in the spring and take some more pictures. Very peaceful.

Another view.

As you can see, we were the only ones there. Carson had the whole area to himself.

Wanted to give me a ham smile.

Going down the fun slide.

Stopped to say hello.

He couldn't decide which slide to go down. Decisions, decisions...

He was playing peek a boo with me.

OH, those slides look like so much fun! Sorry to hear about your sleep schedule. Again, you amaze me :)

Angie said...

You continue to impress me with how you function on such a crazy schedule. Carson is such a ham I love it! Taegan has just discovered slides and she smiles and laughs so hard. Keep doing what you are doing crazy lady-you are doing awesome!!!

Great pictures...

I cant believe Amy's baby was 11lbs, can you. What a brave lady to carry all that weight around.

I cant wait to see pictures. Have you talked to her?

At least Carson was able to fun on slide for awhile. I hope your sleeping schedule gets more consistant, poor little guy. You are one incredible mom!

What a beautiful view you have. I wish our snow was gone so we can go play.

I am so jealous, I would love to be by that lake right now. We have had nice weather also but tonight we are expecting bad storms. I hope this isn't fortelling what our spring will be like. You know the fresh air is good though for both of you. I sure hope that you and him will be able to get on a better sleeping schedule.

It would be hard to decide which slide! Must be great living near a lake. :) Hope he's feeling better now. :)
