Memorial Day Weekend - A Tri & Some Pukes

I literally just cannot keep up sometimes with this blog.  Summer is supposed to be about relaxing and yet I find that we're constantly doing things and not much of them are relaxing.  Keeping the kids busy and taking them on adventures is so much fun and rewarding to see them so excited but relaxing is so not something we do with kids.  Lately we've expanded on our after dinner walks around the neighborhood to occasionally stopping by Grand Valley and enjoying the scenery. Noah seems to enjoy riding his bike for much longer when he gets to explore the campus.  I sure hope he's a Laker when he gets older. We pulled out the attachment for Jeffs bike so they can ride in the back with him.  We tested it out with both kids and although I think Peyton is a touch to short to touch the bottom, in a month or so he should be doing pretty good.  Noah takes up so much room though, there is no way they will both fit in there next year.

This weekend we headed down to Kalamazoo for Jeffs first triathlon of the season.  We weren't on the road for more than twenty minutes when Peyton barfed all of the back seat. We turned around, headed back home, gave him a quick bath while Jeff hosed the car seat down and then we tried again.  We we're settled at my moms house for the night, we all went to bed no problem.  Noah and I slept together and about two hours after I headed to bed Noah woke up with a huge puke all over the covers.  I totally forgot my glasses so I was blindly trying to figure out where all the mess was and how I could get Noah to the bathroom.  I had to wake Jeff up to help me.  What a mess. The bed what so not usable after that so Noah went to sleep in Jeffs room with two twin beds and I hopped in with Peyton.  Thinking the disaster was over I slept the entire night to wake up and find that Jeff and Noah had been up four times in the middle of the night puking. Noah told us he was feeling much better though, so after one last dry heave in the morning we woke Peyton up and we all headed out to the tri to cheer on Jeff.  By the way, it was his birthday.  Happy pukey birthday Jeff. : /

We all made it through.  Sunday was such a long day and everyone was exhausted.  We did a million loads of laundry and my Moms house before we left and finally headed home.  By the time we got there I was feeling way under the weather.  We toughed it up to celebrate Jeffs birthday and then we put everyone to bed.  I took a shower and puked all over.  I can't believe it got me too.  Such a bummer.  Needless to say, our weekend was full of ups and downs.  I'm glad to be back at work and catch a break before next weekend.  Noahs birthday party is happening and my little Baby Bear is no longer a baby!   Gosh it makes me so sad. We need another baby.
