We left on Saturday, July 4th in hope to watch the big firework display on the lake that they host every year. Approximately 500 or so boats get out on the water to watch and this year my parents brought their houseboat so we were all looking forward to seeing the show from the roof.
As we were unpacking and getting the steaks on the grill, Landon busted his chin on a metal fence while trying to climb it. We decided that it was definitely deep enough for stitches and took him into the Murfreesboro ER. For those who aren't familiar with Pikeville campground, it has a VERY rocky/bumpy road that takes 30 minutes to go appoximately 5 miles. Needless to say, we weren't too thrilled to go down that again and miss the fireworks...but oh well! In case anyone was wondering, the Murfreesboro ER is right across from the Piggly Wiggly. Only 3 rooms, but such sweet people! Landon's laceration was a perfect candidate for Dermabond which basically glued his skin together. Then we were told that it couldn't get wet for at least 5 days. Well, between sweat, popcicle juice, and eating, the glue came off by day 3 and he got a big rash from the band aid. He will have a little bigger scar than we would have liked but at least it's not in plain view.
On day two, Landon put another gash on his head by hitting it on the picnic table. Thank goodness it didn't need another trip to the ER.
On day three, Kennedy woke up with 102 fever. She is still cranky and it's been 6 days since the fever started. Almost took her to the ER b/c of so much diarrhea, no appetite and low grade fever for so long. I hate that she wasn't her normal happy self the entire week. But she was still a trooper
On day four, Kennedy fell and got a little bump on her head so the beatings continue. Thank goodness it wasn't too bad and didn't leave a bad bruise, just a scrape.
The rest of the trip was pretty much uneventful. Our extended family joined us on Wednesday and it was great to visit, float, and enjoy such PERFECT weather. It's been three years in a row that it hasn't been super hot or bad weather.
Well, enough talking and here are some pics!
And here is a video of Landon falling asleep at the dinner table. If you listen, my dad asks him if he wants to ride the motorcycle and his reply was "Ok"!!!!
