Hoppy Easter!

Wow! Easter turned out to be quite an eventful day, and almost nothing happened as planned. For starters, it was windy, cold and wet outside all day. Boo! Usually we are mildly complaining of the heat, so it's typical that as soon as we don't have said heat we are complaining of the cold! ;P

We had plans to spend Easter with my family and Greg's family, and our friend's the Weaver's were going to come over for an egg hunt and dinner with their two kiddos. Easter morning we ate breakfast together, the kids found their baskets and tore into those, the Grandparents show up and almost instantly Greg starts complaining of a headache and he is shivering, despite being dressed in layers, a robe and a blanket off the couch. Poor guy! I take his temp and it is normal. He ends up falling asleep on the couch and about 20minutes later wakes up with a beat red face. I check his temp again and it is up to 101.6. Poor kiddo had just gotten over a random ear infection over a week ago, so once he starts saying he is dizzy we think it possibly came back. Since we have friends with small kiddos coming over we decide to get him checked out asap at the med center so we know what is going on. There they rule out an ear infection, and strep. The doctor made an "educated guess" that he has a throat infection, prescribes more antibiotics and sends him on his way. The poor kid slept the rest of the day and didn't even want to eat any yummy Easter goodies! :(

Our friends decided to stay home and not risk catching anything, don't blame them one bit. The rain really started up and we didn't get to do an egg hunt outside! :( Ava had a good time though with her family and we are planning on doing a delayed hunt later this week for the kiddos, which will be super fun now that the rain has subsided and the ground is dry!

Here are a few photos, I even got one of G before he started feeling terrible...

Hope your little guy gets to feeling better.

I enjoyed the pics of Ava. It looks like she had a great time during the Easter holiday!
