Busy vacation

I was on vacation last week because day care is closed and Rhea and I kept very busy. On day one we cleaned a lot and made a watercolor noise maker. Rhea painted with watercolors on paper plates then after they dried and Rhea took her nap we filled paper plates with rice and stapled them together. It was a lot of fun.

Tuesday was full of fun. Rhea got to spend some time with Danny while I got to go to the dentist to have a root canal done. I get to go back in two weeks to finish it up :(

Then it was off the hospital where my sister had a c section at 8:54am and gave birth to her fourth child. Rhea thinks he is pretty cool. To add to the fun of the day one of my best friends was also in yesterday at 1:30 to the same hospital to have also c section with her second child. Rhea also thinks she is pretty cool.

Wednesday Rhea and I went shopping for a bit then go to the hospital to visit the new babies!!! Kallista my godchild and oldest niece came to stay over night with us. She is 6 and a lot of fun.

Thursday was busy with Kallista at our house until after 2 but then we relaxed a bit. Thursday night we had a very sever thunder storm that took out many trees and power lines all over Waterloo and Cedar Falls. Rumor has it that winds hit 100 mph. I was up at 3:30am pacing the floor trying to decide if I should wake up Carl and Rhea. Carl got woke up by the storm and stayed up until is passed then we all went back to sleep.

Friday was a busy day for me. I love to cook and I did a full day of it. I made mini blueberry muffins, garlic beer bread and brownies to take out of town with us this weekend. I also made chicken and rice for lunch and homemade lasagna for supper. Both of these we request by Carl since he was racing both Sat and Sun in Clear Lake. He did a great job and I am very proud of him. If you would like a race report you can find that on Carls blog.
