The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of Spring Break

I had this great drama filled post I had planned in my head that I was going to write after Spring Break was over, and well here we are two weeks later, so here is the condensed version.

The Good:
The beginning weekend of Spring Break my mom, my oldest sister, and my niece Rylan and nephew Colton come in town to visit.  We had a great time! They got in late Friday night and left Monday morning.

Saturday we did some fun outings and shopping with the kids.  We ended the evening making our own pizzas, playing outside after the rain, and a movie night.

Sunday we took the kids to the dollar movie theater and then for dinner went to the hibachi grill, which was hysterical watching the kids faces.

The Bad:
Hattie got sick with what we thought was strep on that Sunday before Spring Break.  I took her into the doctor Monday after the family left just for them to say it is just a virus with some of the same symptoms of strep and that it will just have to run its course...okay fine no problem.

The Ugly:
At some point during our fun times while my family was here we were exposed to some nasty germs because by Wednesday and Thursday Hattie, me, my mom, and my niece and nephew all had a stomach virus, thank goodness we were all at our own homes by then ;), so now Hattie has been sick since Sunday which then turns into a stomach virus and I get it too...oh and of course Bret was out of town for work when all this was happening.  Luckily Molly did not get sick.

By the end of Spring Break on Friday we were all finally better and could get out and enjoy the beautiful weather.  We did have a great end to Spring Break 2013.

Yes, anything involving a stomach virus is not just ugly, but UGLY. Ugggg..... But I just love love love seeing Molly playing with her cousins. She always looks so happy to be with them! :)

Boo on the sick part. Glad you all were still able to have some fun over spring break though. Oh, and when did Molly get so big? Seriously, we live next door and I missed it! :)
