Quality time with Sarah....

As strange as it may sound - I actually enjoy the one on one time I get to spend with my kids when only one of them is sick and has to go to the doctor. Weird? probably... but think about it. I get to spend lots of one on one time with Justin (while the girls nap, when we go to the movies, to Blockbuster or shopping just the two of us) but I rarely get to spend one on one time with the girls. Except when they are sick.

Yesterday was one of those days. Sarah woke up with a bizarro rash and splotchy red marks all over her. I left the office and ran her over to Urgent Care. This weird breakout had even the doctor scratching her head - still not really sure what it is. She thought some of it looked like an allergic reaction (contact dermatitis I guess they call it)some of it actually looked like insect bites (weird cuz she hadn't been outside at all on Wed to get bit). They sent us home with two prescriptions - a steroid and an anti-itch medication to keep her from scratching it. We headed over to the pharmacy to get them filled and pick up some Cortaid and Sarah and I got to do a little shopping. She was so cute. Girlfriend talked my freaking ear off the whole time. So adorable. While I was looking at the creams she saw the Bandaids and immediately went for the SpongeBob box - she's turning into her brother. Justin used to have to pick out a pack of Bandaids everytime we went to the grocery store.... She also got to pick out some pops (dum dums) to take home for everyone and she insisted on Thomas gummy vitamins :)

Sarah is a trooper! She is so much better today. TGIF!

We are loving summer!

Wow! Summer's getting off to a nice start... Justin is loving his first real summer vacation and break from school. Speaking of the little man - he got fantastic marks and some very nice comments from Mrs. Radloff on his report card. Way to go Justin! I am so proud of him. And he is reading like an old pro!

Last weekend we had two of my friends from high school visit - Susan and Mike, along with their families. We had a GREAT time. We hung out in the afternoon then piled into the Sequoia and hit the Belmont Concert - it was REO Speedwagon and it was a great show. Merrywood Court gang was there - and a handful of other friends from around town. Then we proceeded to make it over to The Dock to see Kicking Norma, our new favorite local band featuring our old friend Doug on guitar. Jen and I along w/ Susan and Indrani were total groupies right up front singing and dancing and having an overall GREAT time. We may have done some shots - I vaguely remember :) It was really fun to catch up - but as always the weekend goes by too fast when you're having so much fun. The Lanzis even made a showing at Belmont - Mark, Robin and the crew. They brought along some neighbors and Robin said the boys had a blast and called it "their first rock concert" - too cute.

The kids are having a wonderful summer so far. Barbara Jean has been filling their days with playdates, pool outings, park trips, moonbounce sessions, picnics and FUN in general. The kids are loving the bucket pool and Justin is a little fish this year in the water. Now we are all counting down to our beach vacation ~ hope everyone is having a great summer!
