Last week was the last week of Reed's track break! He had the entire month of February off. We'd already done most of our favorite things to do in Vegas, so thought we'd enjoy a week in St. George at Grandma and Grandpa's house! The last week of February is also generally a very busy week for Ryan and we probably wouldn't really see him even if we were home, so going to St. George seemed like the perfect way to end track break.
Somehow, Ashie and Ben always end up matching.
Family Home Evening!
Tuesday is also Reed's piano lesson day. This week, it was also the day we decided to start Ashie on piano lessons when we got back to Vegas. I told him we could start in St. George and he wanted to wait. An hour later, while I made lunch, Reed taught Asher the entire first lesson, which kind of made my day it was so cute.
We spent Wednesday afternoon swimming at the Washington City Community Center with Grandpa and Kayla. When we lived in St. George, we had a pass to the community center and would go swimming all the time. Living near a pool that's not crazy expensive is something I've definitely missed since living in Vegas. Anyway, the pool was so great. The kids loved the life jackets--especially the "tail" (better known as the excess cord) that hung off the jackets. The boys, who usually hate having any bit of water in their eyes, were purposely standing under the gigantic bucket of water that intermittently dumps out, waiting to get soaked. And all three of them were going up and down the slides like crazy. The water was gloriously warm and we all had a wonderful time.
Thursday night was kind of worrisome for me. Lila's allergies were really acting up--the worst they've been since last February, when we ended up in the ER. I gave her yet another bath (in hopes of washing off the allergens on her skin), then tucked her in to my bed instead of the crib. When I went to bed a few hours later, she was having sleep apnea-esque episodes, which are not my favorite. When she's having allergy issues, she gets super congested and sometimes has the apnea episodes. Anyway, I woke her up, gave her the medicine the doctor said to give her when she's reacting (a few hours early--it's supposed to be given once a day--but who's counting?) then put the epi pen on the nightstand next to me before climbing into bed with her. Thankfully, she slept fine and woke up still allergic-y, but at least not any worse than the night before.
We made it home!
