Memorial Day Weekend

We didn't do much for Memorial Day.  After taking Cade to the pediatrician, we found out that he did have a slight case of pneumonia and an ear infection.  They prescribed a lot of medicine, and he is feeling much better now.  Camdyn has been congested, but nothing serious so far and hopefully she can avoid the rest of the illness around our house.  Then we found out that Brenna has strep throat again for the third time this year.  She never complains about her throat hurting or feeling bad when she gets strep.  The only way I know is that she coughs a lot. 

Needless to say, we weren't able to make any big plans for the weekend, but we still had a great time.  We had a "camp-out" on our back deck with Brenna while the babies slept inside.  We blew up the air mattress and watched Princess and the Frog outside on the laptop while Daddy grilled hot dogs and veggies.  After dinner, we made s'mores over the "campfire" (aka BBQ pit).  Then we finished watching the rest of the movie under the stars.  It would have been a perfect night except our mattress had a slow leak, so after a while Brenna and I went inside to sleep in Mommy and Daddy's bed and left Daddy outside on the leaky mattress.  It was so much fun that we are already planning our next "camp-out".  This is definitely my kind of camping with a nice shower, a fully-stocked kitchen, and comfy beds readily available that you don't have to share with anyone else!
