Leo Leo Leo and his tough week

Leo's glasses finally arrived after a week of me anxiously waiting to get over this hurdle. We tried them right before bed on Tuesday and he wasn't mad about them but kept pulling them down around his neck. The next morning we sent them to daycare with him. The report from the teachers was that he kept them on all day except when they took them off for his naps. WOW!
BUT... the same day as the debut of him in glasses, he was diagnosed with Hand Foot and Mouth disease. Yep, you read it right. Sick again. So we are in a self imposed quarantine since he is going to be contagious for awhile. He has blisters on his hands, feet, in and around his mouth/throat as well as red bumps all over his body. His throat is so sore he won't eat anything solid and has been sleeping most of the day. We are giving him Tylenol and Motrin alternating to help him cope. At least it doesn't itch. This illness is hard to take as a parent. Please send virtual hugs his way, he'll need them.

Zoo and Build A Bear Workshop

Some pics from the zoo

So many choices!!

She chose the dog that was nice and furry

Here are the final results. Thanks Yvonne!!
Yvonne spent the day with us last Saturday. We went to the zoo in the morning where we met Heather and Reed. Reed had a birthday party at the zoo so we stayed together until they met up with the party. Yvonne, the kids and I continued on but got caught in the rain. We decided after wet and chilly to head home. After lunch and naps we went to the mall to use the gift cards Yvonne gave Dru and Reed for their birthdays. Dru chose a fuzzy dog and Reed chose a monkey. It was a fun experience for everyone!
