Happy Birthday Nana
After Flag Football and Blake's presentation, we drove to Rogers, to meet up with Nana and Papa. The night before, Blake took Mason to QuickCare to find out he had a very back ear infection in his left ear, complete with bloody discharge. We got him started on an antibiotic and hoped for the best. We knew it was going to be a long weekend, but we headed to Rogers as planned. We were able to see Granny & Chelsea and very quickly, Aunt Dee, as well.
Mason's fever never broke and came right back as soon as the Tylenol wore off. We had planned to walk next door for dinner at Copeland's while Nana & Papa took care of the boys. As the Tylenol once again kicked in, we went to dinner. It was so nice to 1. eat out, 2. eat without children, 3. eat such delicious food!
When we got back to the hotel, Mason was feeling much better, and Papa had taken Braden to Wal-Mart and bought him a race track to play with. I put Mason to bed, while Braden went to swim.
We paid dearly for the nice dinner. Mason was up crying with fever at 3 a.m., so that he wouldn't wake Braden up or get us kicked out of the hotel, Blake walked him down to the lobby to calm him down. He was back shortly with a dirty diaper, and about an hour later once Mason went back to sleep. Then of course Braden was up before 7 a.m., ready for breakfast, so Blake took him to the lobby.
As nice as it was to see everyone, and be there for Nana's birthday on Sunday, hotel trips are not fun right now.
We got Nana a photo album for her birthday. Braden was so proud to give it to her and kept asking what time her "party" was. He automatically associates birthdays with parties.
