After getting home from the fun little ER trip on Thursday morning we weren’t sure if we’d be able to make the family picnic to Waxahachie happen on Friday as we’d planned. Thursday was just kind of a “blah” day. Madeline was still pretty sick (and hallucinating bugs) and I was tired. Being the good guy that he is, Jeremy stayed home and let me sleep in, which was really nice since we didn’t get home till after 5am. Susannah had some sinus issues going on so nobody was very spunky that day. Friday Madeline was still running a bit of a fever but she was energetic and happy so we decided to take our day trip anyway. There’s a pretty little park out in Waxahachie that has a 7-8 mile bike trail we wanted to ride. It was a beautiful day and other than the runny noses and missed naps we all had a great time. (Oh, and by the time we got there Madelines temperature had dropped to normal levels without the help of any medication.)

Saturday was Justus birthday party. Regina had rented a party place that was full of big inflatable slides and play areas for the kids. I forgot my camera – bad Bek – but this video will show you what group of people had the most fun of all…

There were several *ahem* “older children” who spent the entire time trying to reach the tags at the top of this game…

And, finally, the yearly bluebonnet photos. You pretty much get kicked out of Texas if you don’t take a picture of your kids with them each spring.
