The Monday Before a 4 Day Weekend

Happy Monday, or something like that...Last week Mini Fox was under the weather, I'll save you the details. Friday rolls around and we hear that she hasn't had any wet diapers since she woke up. And even then her over night diaper didn't have much. She refused to drink anything, Mr. took her to the doctor (I couldn't get home, insert sad face and getting no work done), and the doc said that if she didn't have a wet diaper in a few hours to take her to the ER.

Sick kids is just so sad...she just did this all day long, on who ever would hold her
 So scary trying to get a child who is lethargic and wants nothing to do with eating/drinking to do just that. We had said if nothing happened by 8:30pm that we would take her in, Good news, we did get her to drink enough liquids that she did have a wet diaper, 8:15pm. Cutting it close there girl!

The kids after they got back from the doctors relaxing together.

Mini Fox slept really great, so Saturday I got up early for my hike. Which turns out the trail was closed, so I went to my usual running spot and did 5 miles. I haven't really run since my half marathon, so I was pleasantly surprised when I didn't have much trouble getting in those miles.

At the car about to start

Half way point, stopped to take a picture before turning around.

I got back and the kids were already up and wanting breakfast, so no shower like I usually get in. A friend had told me about some cupcake pancakes that she made that her kids loved. It sound fun, so I used the idea of Pioneer Woman's recipe, but let's face it Mama doesn't have time for homemade.

I used our favorite pancake mix.

Added a few chocolate chips to some of them.

and out came these gorgeous things...They smelled delicious and I'm told they are very cake like. Baby Fox ate the chocolate chip ones by themselves, and then added some syrup to the plain ones.

I wanted Mini Fox to rest, so they watched Frozen while I cleaned up. We don't normally let Mini Fox use the pacifier, but when she's feeling a little under the weather, anything goes.

Caught them holding hands, so cute.

After the movie the kids had some pent up engery, so we took them to the park. My legs were pretty dead, so I was walking while Baby Fox rode, he didn't understand why I wasn't running next to him.

We had some friends over. Don't worry, full disclosure was given to them about Mini Fox's ailment the day before...they still wanted to hang out.

Sunday we headed to a the girl in the above picture 3rd birthday party.

She was so excited for cake

Not a happy camper...poor thing, the BRAT diet did what it said it would do, but then...well you know how that goes...

At Baby Fox's swim lessons, waiting patiently for it to be over.

We had my parents over for dinner. Actually my parents brought us dinner, it was awesome. Then we watched Sword in the Stone and called it a night.
