It was RSV...

Well, my poor boy did have RSV. You would have never known it though! He's been very silly lately. He found his old bouncer and decided to stand up and jump backwards in it. The boy is a daredevil.

We put together our playhouse finally. The other side is colored much nicer. This side has a lot of practice letters, stop signs, giant squids, and sperm whales on it.
Ave said it was a coffee shop. She brought her tea set in there! Looks pretty inviting huh?
Teague thought he was pretty cool in there too. This is quite a serious face here though.
Luckily when we took him to the doctor his oxygen level was still a 95, which is very good. We must have caught it early. He sounded horrible though - wheezing, shallow breaths. Carter gave him his first steroid treatment at home. What a good brother. Carter and Ave ended up having some treatments too unfortunately. That medicine kicked in fast thank goodness.
I love my blue-eyed guy...he's so cute and pretty calm too. He does just fine with his treatments if you give him a book to read.
By Saturday we needed to get out of the house. We've been in quarantine since Tuesday. Plus the sun was out! We went to St. James for a little while. That park is usually pretty quiet, and we still wanted to keep our sickos away from other kids if possible. Teague has a silly smile for swinging!
He was intrigued by all these little tiny rocks. I was just happy he didn't try to eat them! The other two nuts were taking off their coats so they could run even faster down the hill. It was a beautiful afternoon.
I love this picture! A tiny man on a mission! Everyone who sees him comments on how little he looks when he's walking. He's a super busy guy though, what can I say?
When we got home, Teague and Daddy took a big nap. Carter, Ave, and I painted some dinosaurs. Avery wants to paint pretty much every day. Carter's actually been enjoying it too. He likes to use every single color on his pictures!
Laney was so happy to go on a walk. Carter (with his cool glasses) is very good at holding the leash. We left the sleeping boys and let Laney run off some energy. I hope it stays like this for a little bit. It's softball and track season though...that usually guarantees snow!
Look at this little crazy person. She is so so funny. I can't even look at this without laughing. They wanted to stop by Aunt Terri's to see if she had any treats because walking is hard work (luckily she had some mint Hershey's kisses). Carter commented a few times on how they saved him from being too hungry!
Time to go for a hike! These sillies just love their Poppa!
We went for quite a hike along the old railroad tracks. Ave had a nice stride going!
We made it all the way to the switch. I gave my girl a few piggy back rides through the snowy parts. She's a trooper though. She does a good job with those little legs.
We had many distractions on the way. There is always a lot of stopping and climbing on various rocks and hills. We had lots of fun though!
Last but not least, they were excited because they could see the Lady of the Rockies. They wanted a picture with her in it. Unfortunately...she's washed out. Oops. Oh well, it was a nice Sunday.
