A pair of Sickies!

Last week we watched one of my nephews and the next day we found out that he had a virus called Hand-foot-and-mouth which is very contagious. So we were watching to see if Emmalyn would get it. Sure enough she did which means that I also got it but only a mild case. But it feels like the flu which doesn't feel mild to me. On the eve of my birthday too!!! Hopefully it will be gone before then cuz we're both miserable.

It also doesn't help that our apartment is stifling hot so we just put Emmalyn in a onsie day and night. Also since Emmalyn just started crawling so her crawling around on the carpet just irritates the spots on her knees. Poor little girl, I can take her being sick but when I'm sick too and I just want to sleep all day it's hard to take care of a baby. I took her to the pediatricial and they said it's on the down hill which is wonderful, we just can't take her anywhere until she is better.

So I would say that one of the most happiest places in Utah is Lagoon! I absolutely love that place, so many memories and I think that I have gone there almost every year since I was little (except for last year because I was looking forward to having Emmalyn too much). Something that I also use to do when I was little was play monopoly the night before going to Lagoon but my husband Matt had to work his grave shift which presented a problem. I was just going to forgo the game but my cute hubs suggested that since we have 2 sets of Monopoly he could take the Disney set to work (thank you Angie for that set) and I'd play with the regular set at home. Since we have free minutes talking to each other we just talked on the phone from around 10 PM to around 3 PM. Matt usually secures buildings during the night but this particular night he had to work in his car so he had to do some finagling to get everything to fit just right. He's got his money pile in the door handle.

I was kind of tired so forgive the tired look. My set up was a lot easier.

Lagoon was so much fun, we were able to go with my brother-in-law Dan and his wonderful wife Roz, her brother Austin and my awesome sister-in-law Katie. We had a BLAST! This is us just about to go on the Jet Star and no I did not tell them to all make the same face, just happens when you're that awesome.

I love this man so much, any place could be the funnest place on earth with him.
