My poor little guy has been pretty sick the last few days...in fact the whole house has been sick including most of the daycare kids. It's been an exhausting couple of weeks. The older kids have had fevors, sore throats and coughs and Mason has an ear infection and RSV. We've been doing breathing treatments three times a day to help with the wheezing. I hate it when my kids get sick especially when their babies, I just feel so helpless. Thankfully I think they're all on the road to recovery and can all get back to school. WOO HOO!! Mason's still doing the breathing treatments but he's feeling and SLEEPING much better!
The majority of the time he falls asleep during the treatment...it's so sweet!
We took advantage of a day off and headed out of town. Can you believe that I've lived here for 37 years and I've never seen the Tonto Natural Bridge...I need to get out more often. The weather was perfect, the scenery was beautiful, the hike was fairly easy and we had great friends to enjoy it with. The dads were working so it was just us moms and all the kids.
I was a little nervous about taking Mason but he did great in the backpack. He even took a little nap. Haley carried him all the way down and LeAnn carried him out. What a great daughter & friend I have...looking out for me and my crippled back!
There was a really steep part that us girls were all afraid of...I think the boys just ran down it. Thank goodness for Haley, she took the baby down first then came back up for the rest of us. Mason was in Heaven! Look at all that hair he had to pull.
I love this picture, it's so sweet.
Poor Nate started running a fever during the hike and had a rough time getting back up the mountain.
After the hike we headed to town and played at the skate park for awhile.
It was a great day and we can't wait to do it again when Larry can come with us
Grizzly Adams is just one of the names Larry was called while he sported his super cool facial hair. I much prefer it over the Unabomber!
He took a leave of absence from flying and decided to stop shaving simply because he could. It only lasted about 6 weeks till he said he was tired of looking like a dirty old bum.
It didn't really bother me, it was a fun change and I knew it wouldn't last forever. Someone asked him "Do they let you fly like that"? Definitely NOT! The goal is to make the passengers feel comfortable when they step on the plane, not like they want to turn around and run when they see their pilot!
Going.... going... going.. gone! Now that's my man! He's still got 6 weeks before he returns to flying so we'll see how long he waits to shave ??
Jaxson finally lost his first tooth and then about a week later lost his second one. He was a little freaked out about the blood but once the whole Tooth Fairy thing was explained to him he was very excited and couldn't wait to go to bed!
