Our Vacation!?!? Part 1

Well, what a few really emotional weeks we have had.  On June 15, Larry Denzil went on the much anticipated scout camp outing with the Hurt clan and the Ashland boys.  He was so excited. I was left at  Mamaw's house with all the kids.  That sunday, we celebrated Nate's birthday.  Here are some of the pictures that I was suppose to share with JoJuan.

On Monday morning, we both woke up with that ill fated stomach virus that everyone seemed to have a few weeks before.  I had my illness at Mamaw's house while LarryDenzil was stuck in a tent in 100 degree weather.  And I think he got the worse end of the illness from what I hear.  Let's just say he was having great difficulty maneuvering a zipper with one hand on a favorite uncle's tent and may have vomited all over the wall of that tent.  Luckily this was a short lived virus.  Unfortunately for me, I was just the beginning.  I was sick monday.  Then tuesday night Ethan got sick and early wednesday Savannah was ill.  Then wednesday evening it was little Larry's turn and by early thursday morning Xander had gotten sick.  I told Larry Denzil I was going to bed at midnight cleaning up vomit and waking up in the morning having to clean up more vomit.  I do not know what it was about this virus, but for some reason not one of my kids could make it to the toilet.  Fun for me.
The kids and I did get to enjoy Ashland a little.  On Wednesday, we went to Hope's baby shower.  A few more family members were able to show up and we had great fun.  Unfortunately for Jason, he was the odd man out and got to watch all the kids.

Oh, great pictures. I was sad we didn't get to see Benny's baby so thanks for the pictures!

(And sorry about the virus - it was a bad but short lived one). I can't tell you how much laundry we had to do. Yuck.
