Living in a construction zone!!

We have been living in a construction zone for the past 2 weeks. The house is being painted, they are working on the well, and now we have people comming to close up holes in the garage.

While I like the idea of a nicely painted, closed up home with water, it is not fun nor easy keeping Abigail inside the house all day. So between the workers and the rain I think she has not played in the backyard in a week. Plus the painters are doing a HORRIBLE job!

Boone Trip

Abigail and I had a chance to go to the mountains this weekend and we jumped on it. Besides the 6 hr car ride with our friends (and the call to the ER hotline) the trip was a lot of time. A lot of laughs, a lot of good food , and a lot of rum... Here are some pictures from the highlights.

ABigail and Sophia dancing at a contra dance. They both had fun, but Sophia has an awesome sense of Rhythm.

We met our babyfit friends Teesa and Sam at the Contra Dance. Teesa's Husband Bill was there too, but somehow I did not get a picture of him.

The only bit of fauna we saw on our nature Hike...and it was on the floor in the mens room.

Hiking on the Blue Ridge Parkway...Can you tell Jessica is having a good time?

A BIG Day!!

Abigail went potty all by herself today. She left the room took care of business and came back to tell me she had "pooped" in the potty. This is an important milestone in the world of potty training...today the potty, tomorrow the world!

Pop goes the...


Yep, she did it again. Abigail was jumping up and down while I was holding her hands and all of a sudden I heard that ominous click, and she started to scream. I thought we would be heading to the ER but I was able to relocate it with the help of a friend (who is an RN)!! As soon as we heard the click, she was able to use it again.This saved Abigail and I a trip to the ER and about $800.

Abigail was back to playing with the kids a few minutes later. She even did a handstand on the couch to show everyone how much better she was feeling. But it is scary how quickly she dislocated it again. It has only been 3 weeks since we were at the ER in Charlotte having it relocated. Plus it seems like it is taking a lot less to dislocate it.

Dislocation #1 Running for doors in Walmart
Dislocation #2 Walking up steps with Grandma
Dislocation #3 Jumping out of chair at day care
Dislocation #4 Jumping up and down at party, holding my hand
