Spring Break 2009

I haven't posted anything in the last few weeks because I have been so busy with school, and Rylan's baseball, and then we got Spring Break, yay! I figured I better get these pictures posted since this weekend is Savanna's 3rd birthday party and Rylan has a few games, so I will soon have even more pictures to post.

For Spring Break we went to San Antonio again this year with Erica and Frankie. It was fun, but way more crowded than last year. The first day we went to Sea World, and it was the most crowded it had ever been when we have been there...but we managed to catch one show...Sesame Street! After that we went to our hotel and got cleaned up to go eat at this popular place Mi Tierras...of course it was way packed too, but we got on the list anyways. It is located in this neat little Mexican Market, so we shopped a little and played around for a couple hours until the kids couldn't take it anymore...we were still waiting to eat...so we left and just ordered pizza at the hotel for a really late dinner.

The next day we had planned to go to the Alamo and Wax Museum but decided not since the Spring Break crowds this year were absurd. We went to the Bass Pro Shop to shop a little, and then we went to the Snake Farm. This place is located right on the side of the highway and we have passed in many times, so we finally decided to check it out. It is so old and dirty. Of course there were many snakes, but there were even random animals, and a petting zoo. Savanna enjoyed the animals but Rylan was a little timid and stayed back.

Here are more than a few pics from our mini-vacay.

What is the point of getting the flu shot....

So both kids have been sick....Rylan came down with the flu last Friday and was finally well enough to go back to school yesterday. He had been feeling pretty much all better since Sunday evening but couldn't get rid of that little 99-100 fever. I think he way over did himself yesterday because by the time 7 pm hit he looked sick again and had me worried. I took his temp an it was very normal....so off to a bath and bed he went and woke up fine, thank goodness. Savanna started a little fever Tuesday evening but was still acting normal, and when she woke up yesterday she had a fever of 102. The weird thing is that she has been playing and acting normal...she was a little more slow during the day but never once complained. Poor girl had a rough night last night though, her fever rose up again at bedtime so she had a hard time falling asleep, she kept jumping awake as if something had startled her...so we gave her more tylenol and she slept with me. About midnight i heard a thud, thud, and realized she had fallen out of our bed and hit the side table...I felt so bad, she cried and cried, then finally settled down. She wouldn't have fallen out if Brandon hadn't still been up watching tv out in the living room, so he came to bed after the incident so it wouldn't happen again. No, I'm no blaming Brandon...hehe. So she is still asleep this morning and didn't feel very warm when I got up, so hopefully she'll be better today...we'll see. I'll update later and get some new pictures.
