2 weeks from today Dax and I are getting to take an adult vacation! We are so excited. We are headed to Breckenridge Colorado with a few friends and hopefully my aunt and her fiance'. I can not wait to go although I have to admit and I am kinda dreading being away from Rilan. This will be the first time he is gone for more than a night since he was 6 months old. Going from being with him every day all day to not seeing him for 5 days is going to be very very hard for me to deal with. I am already having trouble just thinking about it. We are going over the Valentines holiday weekend so that should be really fun and hopefully romantic since we will be in the snowy mountians! We have not gotten to go snowboarding since we lived in Lubbock and it was an awful trip, I got sick and it was New Years eve and there were TONS of people there so we didn't get to do a whole lot of anything but wait in lines. I can't wait to see if I can actually still board, I have been working out like a mad woman and trying to loose as much weight as possible before we go so I'm not the one everyone is waiting on! :) I can't wait, it will almost be like a honeymoon for Dax and I since we only got a very very short one when we got married. I'm so excited to take our new camera, I am going to make Dax and I a scrapbook of our trip! I will post lots of pictures when we get back!
So this weekend I was lucky to receive an awesome gift from my in-laws! They got us a brand new Nikon D60!!!! I am sooo excited. Today I went and took pictures of Rilan at the train he loves. It is a vintage steam engine that was redone and is there for people to look at and climb on. I don't know how many of you know how much Rilan loves trains so this was so much fun for him to acutally get in it and "drive it." Maybe I can get the pictures uploaded and edited and up before tonights end! We will see if I can figure it all out! I am so exited I am going to be able to start taking awesome photos of the little guy!

The end of the week didn't go quite as well as the first. The next morning Rilan woke up not in the best mood, so Dax's dad wanted to take him to eat "bachi rice" thats what Rilan calls the Japanese Steak places. So off we went, Rilan didn't eat a thing and just wanted me to hold him, NOT like him at all. So I started feeling his head and he felt like he might have a little fever. We got back to the houe and I checked it sure nough he did. It was only like 100 at this point so I put him down for a nap hoping he might feel a little better when he got up. No such luck it was only worse, it had got up to about 101. That evening we went to see a friend of Dax's that lives in NY and was in town for the holidays. we were gone for about an hour. When we got back I was going to check his fever again and Dax's mom said she had done it about 30 minutes ago, and it was 98 or so, I was like well I will check it again to make sure its gone. I checked it and he was 103.2!! I freaked to say the least! He wasn't having any other symptoms but his fever so I had no clue what to do. The next morning I decided if he still had a fever to take him to Urgent Care. He still had a 103 fever when we got up so off to the Dr. we went. On the way I wasn't feeling well but thought I was just because I hadn't eaten anything. We got there and they told us that he had a ear infection in both ears and a mild throat infection. So he gave him a prescription for Amoxicillin and we were on our way to fill it. We ran to get him something to eat while they were filling it and I started feeling even worse. While we were in line at Walgreen's I told Dax to hurry and make a MAD dash back. I ended up getting a freaking stomach bug that was going around. I literally felt like I was dying, it was horrible. So that evening, I thought I could make it to my parents house before I needed to be back in a bathroom, so we loaded up and were on our way. Rilan sick as can be and me feeling horrible too. Poor Dax was a trooper taking care of us. I finally started feeling better in the night and woke up feeling much much better. Rilan's fever was finally down some. That morning we loaded everything up and came home. My mom came with us so that was a HUGE help, plus we needed her car to so we could get everything home. Well sorry for this novel. If we wouldn't have gotten sick it would have been much shorter! Hope all of you had a great Christmas and a wonderful New Year!!
