We decided to end our first full day of vacation with a drive to one
of our favorite ice cream places. It's surrounded by gorgeous
mountains, has little playhouses for the kids, and the best coffee ice
cream I've ever had.
Unfortunately, I made a
momentous MomE blunder. Having been spoiled by our fabulous Ella's
Frozen Yogurt that caters to Non-Dairy folks...I asked if the sherbet
had dairy or not. The young teen working the front said that no, it was
made with orange juice. Okay, right there I should have been
suspicious cuz orange juice would curdle the cream...but I wasn't.
Even when it came and I saw it was creamy I didn't ask further
questions...and watched my little man consume the whole whopping
serving. At first, he ran around with the best of them...until he
started vomiting and swelling up. Even with Benedryl he was covered in a
rash from head to toe. It was horrible!
So, off to the ER we
went...you know you are a serious case when the check-in nurse calmly
reaches up to hit the call button and they wisk you away while your
husband stays to fill out the entrance paperwork. Lubby was just
irritated...and concerned about needles. After being pumped with
steroids he felt much better and wanted to go HOME! Around midnight, we
But, he was up and
headed out for our morning walk up the mountain at 7 AM! I let poor
Loverbrains sleep...and trucked along with the Sweet Boobahs. It was a
gorgeous morning...misty! It made me think..."O LORD, be gracious
to us; we long for you. Be our strength every
morning, our salvation in time of distress." Isaiah 33:2
See! He looks
fabulous...and alive! Phew...thank you, Lord!! His sister was very
doting...she worries about him! She's one of his best advocates!
We found many Red
Efts...or salamanders that morning. We like to rescue them by pointing
them away from the road!
Later, we snapped
beans...something that can be enjoyed by children of all ages...hahaha!
They were yummy too!
