The plague strikes again ...

When Lila first started preschool (aka daycare) we were all sick CONSTANTLY throughout the first year, but since then it hasn't been too bad. Until this past week. Poor Owen came down with croup on Monday night, which if you aren't familiar with is a super scary cough that also comes with trouble breathing. It sounds awful!!. Ugh. My poor sweet boy was MISERABLE all week and basically didn't sleep all night due to this horrible coughing and trouble breathing. 

(My only familiarity with croup is from the Anne of Green gables movie, when the kid she's babysitting comes down with it - lol!).

Anyway, after two trips to the pediatrician, a steroid treatment to help the cough, and a second trip and antibiotics to treat a sinus infection that followed, we're SORT OF on the mend. 

We had to cancel a weekend roadtrip to visit some friends, but a car show this weekend complete with vintage fire trucks and hats got a smile on his face! 

Here we are at the Greenwood Car Show! Lots of cool vintage cars. 

We mostly hung at home though, and Grant put his camping hammock up in the yard which the kids loved! 


And then Saturday night, Lila came down with a fever (nooooo!). Thankfully it doesn't seem to be the same croup Owen had and her fever was gone in the morning. 

She wasn't quite 100%, but nothing a trip to the beach and a Barbie pop couldn't fix!! 

Sunday was such a beautiful day here and we're in for another gorgeous sunny week!! I spent naptime catching up on my magazines outdoors. 



  1. Aww poor little ones - being sick is no fun, and coup sounds especially horrible. That car show sounds like so much fun though. Glad you were still able to enjoy the weekend!

  2. When plans deviate, magazines in the sunshine work too. You look adorable! So sorry your precious ones were sick...summer illnesses always seem worse because you're itching to get out. Hope all is better and we can get this week done quick for the holiday weekend!!

  3. Oh germy daycare sicknesses are the worse!! Hang in there. Love the pic with the three of you!

  4. I'm sorry to hear your little guy came down with croup, but so glad it didn't stop you from having a fun weekend! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  5. Oh no! So sorry to hear your little ones were sick this weekend. Especially Owen with croup, no fun at all! My friend's little one has croup right now too. I'm glad you guys still managed to have a good weekend! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  7. We haven't had croup yet in our house but both kids had RSV this past winter and it was terrible! I hope everyone is feeling better and ready for a fun 4th of july weekend!
