Happy 4th of July and more

Sorry for taking so long to post something again.  It has been a busy few weeks for our family. 

We had a great 4th of July weekend with family and friends.  Sunday we spent the evening at Bree's house (a family friend).  We swam and watched fireworks with my dad, step-mom, Bree and her family.  What a great time the kids had!  Anna is like a little fish!  She loves the water and isn't afraid of it at all.  With a full float in her swimsuit and then arm floaties on she is almost unstoppable.  It took Nathan a little while longer to warm up to the water, but once he got warmed up he loved it too.  We missed Caleb but he was off for a week in Atlanta with his dad going to all kinds of fun attractions.  We didn't get home until 11:30.  This Mama is too old to be out that late now.  LOL  Monday we went to my dad's for a cookout.  My sisters, Amy & Amber were there.  My dad brought my grandfather home from the nursing home for the afternoon.  It is always great to have him come home for a little while.  We had hamburgers and hotdogs for dinner and LOTS and LOTS of dessert.  We ended up leaving after a few hours because Anna & Nathan both severely needed naps. 

I actually look Tuesday off since the kids daycare was closed.  My dad & I took the kids to the Creative Discovery Museum.  They had a blast!  Anna's favorite part was the water and Nathan's favorite was the Bob the Builder exhibit.  I got some awesome pictures of them there.  :)

Nathan had to have an EKG and Echocardiogram on Thursday.  He hated that!  Matt took him and it took him and several nurses to hold him down and distract him so they could do them.  This is something that he has to do every year because of one of the chemotherapy drugs that he got, Doxorubicin.  They didn't tell us anything there, but last year when we were there they told us that everything was fine and he didn't need to come back to be checked until he was 5.  However, due to the protocol for his treatment we have to go each year. 
Friday Caleb went to the an Allergist to see what he was allergic too and what we need to do about it.  He is allergic to common things, dust, tree pollen, dust mites and roaches.  I had never heard of a roach allergy, but I looked it up online and it's real.  The Allergist put him on a daily nasal spray and suggested that we do allergy shots for him.  We will probably start those at the end of the summer. 

Have a great week!
April
