We started the first week of 2016 with two sick toddlers...that didn't change much though the month of January. Jack battle bronchiolitis and Harper had a double ear infection and pneumonia. Between the coughing, nose wiping, breathing treatments, humidifier cycles, and endless doses of sticky sweet medicine, our house looked like an infirmary as we welcomed in 2016.
My big news for January was a trip to Walt Disney World and a challenge I never thought I would see myself completing. My wonderful sister-in-law, Jennifer, and I ran the Walt Disney World marathon- 26.2 miles. I had fun, I astounded myself with my determination, and I finished. After the race (and an ice bath), Tony and I got to spend some time with the Colletts in Florida theme park hoping and enjoying each other's company.
While Harper and Jack did not go to Disney World, they did enjoy the gifts we brought them :)
We rounded out the remainder of our January with some much needed haircuts, some visits to see Pop (who is doing very well) and we finally- woo hoo!- got well.
We got to visit Pop with Wyatt, Sloane, Aunt Kiki and Great Granny:
The next visit we got to play in Pop's wheelchair:
I got brave one afternoon and took the kids by myself to visit Pop. I was impressed with the kids and we hung out with Pop for about an hour- just the 4 of us, until Nana got there. Then we went outside to see the turtles in the courtyard.
Jack was so worn out after our visit, he crashed on the way home
So, that was our January- next post will catch up to present day and all the adventures we've been on- and here's to many more adventuresome days to come- check out a few extra pictures of January.
