Well, we made it 2 1/2 years without an urgent care/ER visit …

… but last night, David split his lip open.  He jumped from a ledge onto the cement sidewalk and landed face first.  Luckily, the pediatric urgent care was still open, so we were able to go there instead of to the ER.  He seems to be doing better this morning, but he still has a pretty big gash in his lip.  It’s a good thing that little kids heal quickly!

Happy Valentine’s Day (A little late …)

Happy Belated Valentine’s Day!  Here’s a picture of our little valentine, who mostly appreciated the candy this year.


We’ve been keeping ourselves busy, and I’m happy to say that we survived 3 days without Chris while he was out of town!  (Although it sure is nice to have him back.)  It was so nice to hang out with friends while Chris was gone – and thank you to everyone who helped me!  Here are some pictures from our recent adventures.

Fire engine!

Today, David and I were lucky enough to go on a tour of our local fire station.  Before we started the tour, I asked David if he had any questions for the fire fighters.  He replied, “Can I drive the truck?”  While they didn’t let David drive the truck, he did get to sit in it.
