Cedar Key Rocks- Viruses Suck

Cedar Key, Florida is a fantastic vacation destination. My entire side of the family went to Cedar Key two Fridays ago and had a great time. We stayed in a condo at Old Fenimore Mill. The rooms were all very clean and comfortable. (Highly recommended) The guys went out fishing Saturday morning and caught quite a few fish. The fishing is much better than what we are accustomed to here along the St. Johns River and Matanzas Inlet. As predicted, one of my children ended up sick. Hayden spent all of Friday night running to the bathroom to barf his brains out. I stayed with him Saturday morning while Matt went fishing. Hayden had fever all weekend, but he tried his best to have a good time. The weekend with my family was fun, I just wish I could have spent more time visiting with them. It was difficult juggling naps, lunches, snacks, and a sick child when all I really wanted to do was lounge by the pool and gossip with my mom, sister, and sister-n-laws. Motherhood is a full time job-I accept that fact, but I do not appreciate working the graveyard shift on my vacation. Viruses SUCK! Looking forward-Matt and I will celebrate our 9th wedding anniversary on July 28th, and if luck is on our side, we will return to Cedar Key- just the 2 of us.

"The Robot" or something like that

Hayden was a little jealous that I put up a video of Josie and not him, so when I stumbled across this video that was taken a few months ago, I decided that I had to post it. This video is Hayden's interpretation of the classic dance move "The Robot." Feel free to laugh out loud and make jokes about my dirty house:)

Vitamin D and Omega 3

Happy Hump Day! I had a particularly crappy morning and a substantially worse work day, but this evening has been down right peaceful. It was a movie and a dinner kind of night. The kids chilled and Lucas went to sleep at 7:00 pm, so the house was quiet all evening. Matt and I sat down together and watched the first 2 hours of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. We still have an hour more to go on the movie, but I suggested we save the rest for tomorrow night. The Bergen family has a big weekend ahead of them. Friday afternoon we leave for Cedar Key to do a little Gulf fishing. My parents, brothers, sister, sister-n-laws, niece, and nephew are coming along too. This is a big deal for us because we have never gotten all our families together for a family vacation. I pray that it goes well. I am a little worried because for the last three nights, Lucas has vomited in his sleep. During the day he seems fine, but at night he becomes ill. I'm hoping that we can all get some sleep tonight. Bathing children and washing soiled sheets is not something anyone wants to do at 2:00 in the morning for three nights in a row. Today at work I searched my desk for toothpicks so that I could prop my eyelids open. No luck. My mood has been glum and my temper short, but I'm hopeful that this mini vacation will re energize my mind and body.
