This will be somewhat brief because we just got home a little bit ago from a weekend in Des Moines for some continuing education hours. We stayed at Prairie Meadows, which has an adjacent casino and horse track. Talk about best seminar ever!
My mom came down to help out with Jenna, since we would be in class all day each day. I think they had a good time.
We did manage to get to a couple of the horse races and we even brought Jenna along since it was so nice out. She had a blast!
Tyler got to have his first slumber party, with cousin Beau. My brother and his wife picked up Tyler on Saturday morning and took Tyler and Beau to the Des Moines zoo then back to their house for the rest of the weekend. It sounds like they had a pretty good time. I bet Ben and Katy will sleep good tonight though, after handling those two all weekend!!
Tyler was pretty high maintenance too. On Wednesday we picked him up from daycare and he looked horrible. A rash all over his face and arms, along with swelling of his eyelids and face. This is him on Thursday, which was no better.
He looks absolutely horrible, but he wasn’t fussy at all, just his normal self. He was just itching all over. So obviously we have an allergic reaction here. I did take him to the medical doctor on Thursday, just to make sure it wasn’t something serious, and he said it was either allergic reaction or viral. Since he had absolutely no fever and he was running around playing and eating everything in site, I’m pretty sure it wasn’t a virus. We’ve narrowed it down to a reaction from some sort of food, sunscreen or something at the park, since that’s when they noticed him start to have the reaction.
He’s much better by now, but it took a lot of antihistamines to get that way. Needless to say, we will be scheduling an appointment with an allergist soon. He has eczema and most likely some environmental allergies this time of year anyways. Thank you so much to Ben and Katy for dealing with his eye drops and medicine!
Since we are not traveling at all next weekend, I should have a better post next time, with hopefully a new recipe. I definitely owe you one!!
Have a great week… stay safe from all those nasty storms!
