A Valuable Lesson
Last night Jennifer and Anna came for a sleepover. We tried a new recipe called Cowboy Pie (it was delicious) and then we made some chocolate chip cookies. Things went well until it was time for bed. In the end Anna slept inbetween Jennifer and I. This morning we got up and I made cinnamon waffle sticks (in my AWESOME waffle stick maker I saw on the "I Want That" show) and then Jennifer took Anna and Cayden to her house. Michael and I went to the NC Mtn. State Fair. For the past two weeks all Bryan and I have heard about is the ferris wheel. Everything Michael has said has been followed by, "and then we are going to ride the ferris wheel!" His dreams came true today. First we looked at some animals. Next we rode the ferris wheel, and then about 6 other rides. Overall he did well with them. The only one that was a problem was the little roller coaster. He left that one crying. We finished with a soft serve ice cream cone Daddy had promised him. He and I had a great time. Then we went and picked up Cayden and came home for lunch. After getting Cayden fed, Michael ate some spaghetti o's, peaches, and was about 3/4 through a cup of milk. I was in Cayden's room laying him down for nap when Michael started crying. I came running out because I wasn't sure what could be wrong and he was standing by his chair holding his belly. He said, "My belly hurts! I want my Daddy!" and then turned and puked all over the floor. So, a note for the future . . . go light on lunch after the fair!
