Sick Kids

It's Thursday night and we are back!  Back from where you might ask.  Well, I had work in Atlantic City all week.  Amy and the kids came to join me on Wednesday. Before they came, Amy took Ariel to a Tu Bishvat party at a Barnes and Noble.
 They had fun.
 On the way to the shore, they stopped by to see Uncle Mark.
Me with Kevin, Ryan and Rich.
I had a chance to drive around the island again.  Several of the houses were in the process of being raised as my parent's house was.  My parent's were fortunate enough to have started it before Hurricane Sandy.  These houses probably had damage.

 The point at Longport.  These houses were in bad shape and they are some of the priciest homes on the island.
 Coming along!
Ariel and Bev had words with the chef.

 My girlie.
 Hey Uncle Bill!
 Aden and Kevin were bonding over Spiderman.
 Aden was fascinated by the big chunk of cow on the table.
 Look who came to hang out.  Daisy the baby nurse!  We hadn't seen her in a year so you can imagine how excited she was to see the kids.
 It's a shame I only get to see them a couple of times a year.  I really need to get to Chicago.
 We slept over Amy's parent's house.
Thursday morning, both kids were sick.  We didn't take his temperature but we are pretty sure Aden had his first fever ever!  That was quite a streak, 4 1/2 years.  He was burning up.  Also, Ariel was sneezing a lot.

 Taking on the phone like usual.
We got Manco & Manco's pizzas delivered.  Ariel loved it.  She devoured 2 slices!
 We finally made it home.  It was not an easy trip.  Ariel kept sneezing and Amy would have to climb over her seat to wipe her nose and Aden threw up!  In my car!  Here Ariel was checking up on him.  
 Ariel walked out the closet with shoulder bag and phone.
 And just kept on walking.
 Too funny.  I don't know what Friday will bring.  I'm sure Aden will not be going to school.  It's N week and he was so excited to bring in Ned's Head for show and tell.  Oh well.  We will think of something really great for O week.

Don't Drink and Drive

Ariel was ready to go in the morning.  She took her bottle and got in the car.
No drinking and driving Ariel!
Music class.  Ariel monopolized Ms. Marilyn's lap.

 Back to swim.

 Ariel was cheering on her brother.
 I will never get tired of seeing Aden swimming by himself.  It's awesome!
 Benjamin was also there to watch Aden.
This is great too.  
 Aden going under!

 Ariel entertains the parents.
 This jacket is too cute.
The hat too!

Go Bananas

After the soccer game, we went with some of the families to a pizza place in Richboro.  Maura's sister Maddie was there and immediately took Ariel!
The girls fought over her.

She was their living doll!

We took up the whole place!

Then we went next door to Go Bananas, a frozen yogurt place.  Aden loves yogurt so this was great for him.  Amy and I can't stand it.  I didn't even think the toppings looked that great.

It was busy for a cold day.

Aden and Maddie.
So Ariel walks off...
and hangs out with some older kids?!?!
She fit right in!
Later that night, we had dinner at my parents.
Ariel got right to work.
Monkey in the middle!
Ariel took my grandmother's jewelry and put it on.
Then she took it off and put in in her mouth!
