The last week or so seems to have flown by.
First of all, a medical update....
For those who asked, the cat seems to be back to normal. We have struggled all week to get liquid antibiotics into him. Thankfully, today is the last dose.
My son is now on antibiotics for strep. The granddaughters are feeling better and so far Hubby and I haven't gotten it.
We went to the zoo with all 3 granddaughters one day last week. We saw tigers....my favorite. I'm a cat lover no matter what size.
We saw flamingos. To a two year old these are "pink turkeys." We have wild turkeys that wander into our yard once in a while so thats what they looked like to her. She talked about them the rest of the day. I think she was very impressed that they are pink which is her favorite color of course.
On Friday I went to an Arts and Crafts Festival with my DIL and 2 granddaughters. It was perfect weather. I didn't buy anything except a balloon yo-yo for each of the girls. There were so many nice things but I always think the prices are terribly high or "I can make it myself". Now, chances are I will never actually make it though.
We cooked out on the 4th. The weather cooperated and it was a beautiful day. No, we did not do any fireworks in case you wondered. We didn't even have any sparklers for the girls. I think fireworks are rather dangerous and the 6 year old has been very afraid of fireworks in the past.
Here's Little Miss Six eating strawberry shortcake without the strawberries. Who doesn't like strawberries!? This girl!
The day wasn't without a mishap. When Hubby went to hang the bunting on the fence wasps came swarming out of the birdhouse! They stung him 3 times. I haven't seen him run that fast in many years!
After dousing the birdhouse a couple times with wasp killer all was fine. We did keep the girls away from that part of the yard though.
Everyone left in time to make it to fireworks and Hubby and I decided to spend a quiet evening at home instead.
I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th if you are in the USA. If you are elsewhere I hope you had a great weekend.
Til next time,
