Birthdays, Sinus Infections and Waterslides

Friday we spent most of the night awake. Emily did not sleep a wink, nor did we. I knew she had a sinus infection so I called first thing Saturday morning. We went to the doctor and got her an antibiotic, and then went on to Landon's birthday party. It worked out good because they live close to where her doctor's office is located, and the party time was right after her appointment so it all fell into place. Emily and Landon were not crazy about the water slide but they seemed to have a good time playing together. The other kids had a ball playing on the water slide. It was good to see everyone, seems like we hardly get to put the brakes on time. Not long after being outside Emily decided she didn't want to wear her bathing suit any longer so she was running around in her swim diaper at the party. (As noted below, in the car photo!)  After we were there for a little while Emily said she was ready to go "bye bye" so we headed back home. It was past her nap time, and I knew she was tired. We spent the rest of the night at the house last night. I made another batch of Oreo truffles to take to the inlaw's today. I will post a recipe later. They are so yummy and easy to make. They are rich though. I also made some baked beans and potato salad for the cookout. We have so much pork, and leftovers in our refrigerator that we HAVE to eat!

Emily and I woke up early this morning and went to Chattanooga, as she made it very clear that she wanted to go "bye bye" soon after she awoke! She always wants to be on the go! I finally found some time today to start a little crafting. Not that I got any of my house work completed this weekend. (At least my husband got his "to do list" completed! Go Husband! I will have to play catch up during the week. Oh well. It's time for another busy work week. I'm hoping for a productive week of exercise... We will see!
