So we had a good weekend! We are all feeling better and ventured out to get our flu shots. We stood in line for about 45 minutes only to go up the elevator to find another line of about 30 minutes. In Darin's words, we decided to "punt" or leave and get the shots at another time. Crazy. The family in line in front of us had 7 kids and she was pregnant. They looked as though the oldest may be around 16 or so and the youngest was around 3. Busy family, I would imagine. The parents looked really young too!
We ended up just going to CVS to get our shots. Darin took Cash & Riley to get their shots while Tripp was napping. They didn't even cry so I was glad. I sent Darin armed with two suckers in the event that they had a tramatic experience with the shots and Darin couldn't calm them down. Then I took Tripp when he woke up. He ended up not being able to get one because if they are 18 months or younger they have to get the shot at their drs office. So I guess I will get to go back and stand in that nice long line in a couple weeks! At least I won't have to drag C & R there again. Can you imagine trying to entertain two 2 year olds while standing in a hallway for over an hour? Brutal. Oh, and we weren't allowed to bring in our stroller because they anticipated such a big crowd. I like having my stroller so everyone is "contained". That and Tripp is too heavy to hold for such a long time. I really wanted to let him down and he wanted to crawl around on the floor just as badly. That was all I needed...my baby crawling around on that nasty floor, probably contracting the very illness we were there to avoid! Anyway, I could go on forever, but I will stop about the flu shots.
We took the kids to Jerry's for some of their favorite pizza. Between C & R they can put away almost an entire medium by themselves. They ate, watched the fish and entertained some of our friends while watching the first half of the Michigan game. Then it was time to head home for a nap.
We were excited to watch the Iowa/Penn State game. It was really the first Iowa game we were able to watch from start to finish since it was a night game, or so we thought. Darin and I both fell asleep before the game was over. The entire time I watched it was 10-5 and Iowa wasn't playing that well so I decided I would rather get some much needed sleep. When I woke up in the morning, Darin told me Iowa actually won! I was excited, but a little miffed that I fell asleep. Oh well, like I am some die hard football fan or something. I do love football season and especially now that it is starting to get a little cooler outside. I am sure we will be enjoying many games on the deck this season!
I have some pictures to post, but I will have to try and get those up later tonight! I have some good ones of my kids and their new love of powdered sugar donuts!
