Parents Visit Part 2

After the party Summer, Kaellyn and I hung out in the big bedroom with the A/C.  Briss got home from work (on a Saturday) around 4 pm and we just tried to stay cool.  Around 5 we decided to order pizza and eat it in the bedroom with the A/C on.  Around 7 pm Kaellyn went to sleep and we took a fan outside because it was still 90 degrees out and we played Phase 10.  That lasted a few hours but was still so fun.

The next day I made "Perfectly Pink Pancakes" that my mum had brought me.  It was so fun.  Then Summer and I packed up our stuff and headed to Duboise Pennsylvania.  It was only a 2 hour car ride but it took us a while to get there and I was still pretty exhausted from the heat and the party on Saturday.  When we arrived we headed to the Elk Preservation.  Sadly, we didn't see any elk.

The next day we headed to Punxsutawney Phils home and saw the town for a bit.  That was fun.  Then we headed over to the Jimmy Stewart Museum.  If anyone knows me they know I love classic movie stars.  And he is definitely in my Top 5 favourite actors.  While I've only seen 28 of his 88 films though.  I need to watch some more. 

The next day was a rest and recovery day which was so needed.  I took a good long nap with Kaellyn but when she woke up she had a really high fever.  Poor thing.  She was just miserable.  The following day was even worse when I discovered she had mouth sores meaning she had Hand, Foot, Mouth disease.  Wednesday and Thursday were horrible days for her.  She could hardly drink juice or eat anything.  She just cried and cried.  It was awful.

Thankfully, it was only a few days.  And during those few days we had fun as a family.  One day we watched 2 Marilyn Monroe movies.  The 1st was Niagara which was perfect because my parents were headed to Niagara falls soon and the other was Gentlemen Prefer Blondes which is a cute, fun film.  We also played Scategories and that was fun as a family.  So although the trip was cut short because of Kaellyns sickness we still had fun.

So it was a great time with my family.  I wish they could have spent more time at our house and spend more time relaxing but it was still good.

Parents Visit Part 1

My parents arrived Tuesday late so I didn't take any pictures then.  Wednesday was 4th of July so we cooked out and had a good time with family. 

On Thursday the 5th we went down to Pittsburgh and we also stopped at the outlet malls for some light shopping. 

At the aviary

This was right before Kaellyn almost pulled the whole thing on top of her.

Day 3

We went to Erie for a day at the beach then went and saw Briss at work.  It was fun to actually spend time with him.  Then we went to a great Asian buffet. 

Day 4~

This was a long, stressful, and hot day.  I had a party for Suzies daughter Piper who was turning 1.  It was a yellow ducky themed party and it was so much fun.  It was 104 in the sun and 97 in the shade so it was a hot day.  We had the pool out and the kids had a blast.  Afterwards, Briss, Summer and I just hung out in the A/C room and did nothing but laugh and talk.  When it cooled down a bit we brought the fan outside and played Phase 10.  That was a great time.
