September started out a rocky one for us. Poor Mr. D came down with a virus and we ended up in the hospital for fluids.
He was a trooper though, and after an overnight stay, he went home. The nurses and Dr.'s took good care of us and our stay was almost a mini vacation. Almost.
Part of the reason it seemed like a vacation was because Rylin went to stay with Mimi & Papa! He had a good time riding and feeding the horses. Helping Papa with the hay and entertaining Mimi with his endless barely translatable vocabulary!
On Friday, as D was doing much better, we headed to West as well. Labor Day is WestFest weekend and on Saturday morning we took the kids to the parade.
Then to WestFest to enjoy a few complementary rides thanks to Papa. Rylin was not interested in much except the big slide and the Ferris wheel...and even that I had to practically drag him on screaming. He was in a mood.
A mood that shows in this picture! We got to watch Shelby and KK preform for the Junior Historians Czech dance club. I was a member back in the day and found it humorous that the show was the exact same we had done...narration and all!
Rylin and D have become great friends. They love to play together in Rylin's room. D is moving a lot these days and even took three steps today! He has come a long way from being in a cast for six weeks just two months ago!
Rylin had his first day of Mother's Day Out. He was so ready to go! He loves school and is always grins when I drop him off and pick him up.
We enjoyed some cooler weather and a few last chances to swim in our giant pool! The chickens are very curious when the kids are in the back yard. They looked so funny pecking around while the kids splashed.
Then from out of nowhere, Sissy decided my arm looked like a nice perch and flew up on me while I was typing on my laptop. Crazy chicken!
Jordan and I celebrated our 8th anniversary this month too. We enjoyed a child free weekend thanks to Mimi & Papa of which we kicked off with a fantastic dinner with our friends Shala & Matt.
I was ready to see my boys again when the weekend was over. Monday night we hit up Chick-fil-a for some play time. Rylin took advantage of having the playplace to himself!
In September Rylin finally started sleeping in his own bed...most of the time! Sometimes he still sneaks in early in the morning.
We got to visit the Plano Balloon Festival with our friends from church and though Rylin was more interested in running around with the other kids, he did get excited about the balloons upon take off.
We've been going to our local YMCA a lot lately and taking advantage of the childcare! Jordan and I get a few hours to work out and the boys get to play with friends. Jordan has been playing some racket ball and has shown Rylin a few moves!
We went to a few more of our friend's birthday parties in September too. It is definitely the season of birthday parties for us! Yesterday, Rylin left Carson & Avery's without his shirt...it was an extra fun time!
We've been getting some much needed rain so the whole family took advantage of our wet Saturday to run around and be silly. Rylin & D loved splashing in the puddles and getting Daddy wet!
