|My handsome cowboys!|
Then we headed over to the rodeo. This was HD’s (and AJ’s) first rodeo and he loved it! AJ, not so much. It was pretty loud in there and I had to leave for awhile to get him to go to sleep. Probably won’t be taking him back to a rodeo until he can actually sit and enjoy it like HD did!
The next day (Saturday) Kevin and HD headed back to the stock show to walk around and look at all the cattle. AJ and I decided that we would have more fun shopping with Kayla. So off we went.
Around 4 or so that afternoon I picked Kevin and HD up and we headed up the mountain.
There was a lot of sleeping and snuggling going on at the condo. HD was feeling so bad that he actually stopped talking and asking about skiing. I made the mistake of mentioning that we were going skiing about two weeks before we left. And just about every single day he asked if we could go that day! We were going to enroll HD in ski school and AJ was going to go to the resort daycare while Kevin and I skied together. But obviously none of that was going to happen!
First thing Monday morning (my 30th birthday) I took the boys over the the clinic right there at the ski resort. On top of having upper respiratory infections (aka really bad colds), they both had ear infections. Ugh! No wonder they felt and look so bad!
|Waiting to see the doctor.|
So off I headed to the Target pharmacy to get antibiotics for both of them and then it was back to the condo for more snuggle time. Neither of the boys had any appetite. We were really starting to worry about AJ since he couldn’t hardly keep anything down. We just did about an ounce at a time and that seemed to work most of the time.
That night, Kevin went and got Chinese food and we were able to eat it together while AJ slept and HD watched cartoons. We finally got him to eat some soup, but not much of it.
We had contemplated heading back to my parents after I took the boys to the doctor, but we decided to stay put and hopefully they would feel better by Wednesday after they had medicine in their system for a few days. Well, Tuesday night was by far the worst night for HD. He had a high fever and just tossed and turned all night long. He wanted me to lay with him and scratch his back.
Can’t say that was how we planned to spend my birthday, but oh well. What do you do when your little ones get sick! We’ll get to go back to the mountains again, but next time we’ll make sure Grandpa and Grandma can go with us! 🙂
