Turn Those Frowns Upside Down
We were afraid the whole 4th of July weekend was going to pass by this sick gang. HeRoos and I have been fighting some ugly stomach bug that has left us 10 pounds lighter and completely drained of energy. The kids have been healthy and full of their normal high energy. They have been so anxious to get out of the house but the two times we tried, it didn't turn out so well. In fact, it was very bad. So we decided to confine ourselves to staying at home. We missed out on some family gatherings, parades, firework shows and HeRoos missed two days of work (which he rarely ever does).
Fortunately, GG and Pops came to the rescue today. They came to visit us with bundles full of goodies. They brought food, bubbles, firecrackers, AND a swimming pool. It sure lifted all of our spirits and now I can type this as I listen to the fireworks going off outside and I don't feel like I'm missing out. We had our own little party & created some memories. Thankfully, whatever we had is gone and our energy is starting to come back.
Happy 4th of July!
