Mylie has a stomach virus. It hasn't been very bad. Just lots of poops and generally not feeling well. We have spent the past few days inside. I guess that was a good thing, because when we went to the doc to day, they said that she is still contagious. So, hopefully this will pass quick.....

New Sites!

I have updated my list of favorite sites! The 1st new one is my sister Regan Ann, she is about to go to Europe for a month and a half. She is going to keep us updated on her blog about her travels.

The second one is my friend Tamera. Sew Unique is her blog that she started for the purpose of showing off and selling her new T shirts. They are awesome! I got one for Mylie and have since ordered for birthday presents. If you can think it she can sew it! Check her out. Also, a portion of the proceeds goes to a really good cause! Read about all of that here!

Whew, we have been busy.

The past couple of weeks has been full of fun! We have spent many days playing with friends, going to the lake and having fun. My friend Tamera and I went to another friends house a few days ago and the kids all swam and played on the giant slide. Mylie even went down the slide and loved it! Saturday, we went to the lake with Scotty and Shell. They took their grandsons as well. We fished, swam, and grilled out. We had a blast. It rained a little on us and blew up a storm, but we pulled in to the dock and by that time the storm had blown over so we went back out! We had a great day. Sunday, Justin and I went to Jake and Janet's for a pool party. We played pool volleyball and the girls won just about every time. Woo Hoo!

This last picture of Mylie, I thought it was so cute! I was in the shower and I look over and she had fallen asleep in her exersaucer! I ran down stairs to get my camera! It was too funny not to share.

Finally recovered

Well, we have finally recovered from our vacation. I think we needed a vacation from our vacation. We had such a good time, it is just a lot different when you vacation with children.
This last week we have been unpacking and getting things back where they belong. We have not completed this task, but when is it ever completed?

Today, Mom came down to visit. Missy dropped Hannah off for dinner with us. Mom, Mylie, and I went shopping before she got here. New York and Co. is having a great sale. I got a couple of tops for $8, and some shorts for buy one get one half off. Mom ran into some great deals at Coldwater Creek. That is her favorite store. I like the clothes in there for Mom. They are very trendy as well as age appropriate.

Tomorrow, Mylie and I are going to the Moore Family Reunion. It is at lunch time, and I can't wait to see everyone. I didn't go last year because I had just had Mylie. The year before, we went and had a wonderful time.

Sunday, Mylie and I will go in to McMinnville to see my dad, then we will head back home to have Father's Day with Justin when he returns from work.

Not a whole lot going on next week. I am sure we will find ourselves out by a pool somewhere if this weather keeps up like it is. Although, tonight we got some storms.

I will try and post some more pics later. I am tired and ready for bed. Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and Happy Father's Day.

Our Last Day

Today we slept in a little bit, Mylie woke up with a low grade fever. She seemed to be feeling o.k. though. Justin and I went to the beach while Grammie played with Mylie. Justin and I both got a lot of sun. The weather was very nice today. Justin stayed out about an hour and then Mom came down to meet me and we went to the pool for a swim. I was tired and hot so I went back up to the condo while she stayed out in the sun for a while. After lunch and a nap, we all loaded up to go and eat seafood one last time. We went to the Crab House over at Barefoot landing. It was amazing. I had crab cakes which were the best. Mom, Nanny, and Poppa all had platters with lots of things on them. Justin had the seafood bar which had snow and king crab legs. He really enjoyed his meal. Afterwards, we went to the beach for some pictures. The wind was blowing very hard but it was nice. Now, we are sitting around the table listing to Justin tell some stories which I am afraid are going to scare Nanny and Mom. The cars are packed are we are almost ready to go. We are getting up early and finishing packing and hitting the road.

Day 6

Mylie woke up without a fever this morning so, we got ready and went to the pool for a little while. We were there for maybe 30 minutes before she got tired. So, we came back up to the condo for her to take a nap. When she woke up she had more fever so, we gave her more Motrin. She is still playing a little here and there and is not showing any other symptoms. I consulted her Doctor to make sure we were taking the right precautions. She agreed to continue Motrin and wait it out. If she has fever when we get back to the boro, we will take her to the Doctor. So, we have spent most of today resting and lounging around the condo. Mom and I got out for a little drive. We drove up the road that follows the beach and saw some beautiful houses. Then we went back to the shops at Barefoot Landing. I picked up a t shirt and some hoop earrings, and she got some earrings and chips and salsa. We stopped for a lemonade and a cookie. The shop had strawberry shortcake cookies that were awful! I guess I am spoiled to my cousin's cookies! We threw the strawberry ones straight in the trash. Oh, we also got Christmas ornaments as well. Tonight we fixed breakfast for supper. It was very good, but I am tired of smelling like bacon. Ha! Justin and I went for a walk on the beach after Mylie went to bed. The weather has been pretty close to perfect while we are here.

Day 5

Yesterday, Justin, Mylie and I took off to Myrtle Beach to go to Broadway on the Beach. We had such a good time walking around and seeing the sights. We ate lunch at Tony Roma's. Next week starts the busy season down here, so everything is very quite with just a few people. At the restaurant there were maybe 4 other tables besides us. It makes for very good service. Mylie started getting hot and sleepy so, we made our way back to the condo. She went down for a nap, but when she woke up, we noticed she was still hot. I took her temp and it was over 102. So, I had to go straight to the store and buy some Motrin. Her temp came down but we have been battling it every since. She has been sleeping a lot and not eating very much, but she is still playing a little. That night we stayed in and just let her rest. After she went to sleep for the night, Justin and I went back over to Barefoot Landing for the fireworks show at 10:15. It was very nice and my camera did not want to cooperate. We got some ice cream after the show and walked around the shops for a little bit. Thanks to Grammie for keeping a close eye on Mylie!

Day 4

Yesterday we woke up around 7 and at breakfast then got ready for a morning at the beach. Within 30 mins. of being at the beach, Mylie was ready for her nap. She was worn out. We sat by the waves and she settled down. Then mom decided she would take Mylie up to the condo for her nap. Justin and I stayed down at the ocean for about another hour. We ate lunch here at the condo. Mom, Nanny, Mylie and I went out for a little shopping. Nanny found some really pretty jewelry, Mom found some cute capris, and I got the paisley purse I wanted. We then went to find some fresh seafood for dinner. We found a wonderful seafood market and bought 2.5 lbs of steamed shrimp, oysters, and scallops. We also got items to make a salad. I got some chicken for me since I am not a big seafood eater. Nanny fried the oysters and scallops and we had a wonderful dinner here at the condo. Poppa said it was better than eating at a restaurant. After dinner, Mom, Justin, Mylie and I went to walk on the beach. Mylie had other plans. She would walk toward the condo or toward the ocean. She did not want to walk along the beach. Her toe keep catching the sand and she would fall down. One time she fell in a puddle and got her belly all wet! Ha! She was covered in sand by the time we got back to the condo. Needless to say, she was exhausted and ready for a bath and then bed. After she went down, we all sat on the balcony and talked for a few hours. Poppa and Justin traded stories as Mom, Nanny and I listened. We had a really good time just sitting and talking.
