Happy Birthday, Nephews!

It was a bit early, but in order for the entire family to be able to make it my sister celebrated Dominique's birthday this weekend. What a fun time we had spending with them on Sunday afternoon. They had a swimming pool set up for the kids that was the perfect size as well as some pretty cool sprinkler toys. We were there just a little over two hours and I took almost 300 photos. I guess it is pretty safe to say that I had a good time as well. The hardest part about snapping photos of kids playing in water is to keep the expensive digital gadgetry in the dry! I I might need to check into getting some best diet supplements since I had cake on Saturday and Sunday. To see more photos from Dominique's party, you can click here.

Saturday afternoon we celebrated my nephew, Dillon's birthday. He had a Mario birthday cake baked by my mother in law. This thing was so life like, I felt like I was 12 again sitting in front of my Nintendo for hours! My mother in law has an awesome talent in making cakes. She makes the cakes for all of our celebrations. She created my wedding cake, and has created every single birthday cake for our children. It's an honor for her master talent to be put to good use. Thanks, Memaw for making those birthdays that much more special with your awesome talents!! We had fun with Dillon and his brother Dakota. We got Dillon the new Wii Resort game and he was gracious enough to play with the kids. They had tons of fun and it was nice getting to spend some time with the in-laws.

Overall we had a fun-filled weekend! It was nice getting to spend time with the family and the weather was beautiful, so it made being outdoors that much more fun. I hope you all had a great weekend. We're looking forward to another great week back at school. I suppose I will be taking little Emily to the doctor today. She has been running fever, coughing, and sneezing with a runny nose all weekend. Of course since Tyler was sick last week, I am sure that she has probably contracted some form of what he had. Since she was sick with RSV last winter, her likelihood of getting it again is very high. Tyler's illness was only viral so there was nothing that we could do for him other than cough medicine and Tylenol. If the same rings true for Emily I am doing all that I can do for her. But, I am afraid that if I don't take her to the doctor, she might end up getting worse and I will be to blame. I'd rather be safe than sorry! I will update later on her condition.

Have a terrific day and week honey. Big hug and lotsa lovies. :)
