the george

well, a week later and we are back from our annual trip to "the vacation house" in st. george. {chase & libby named it that years ago and it just stuck}. steve didn't get to go this year, and in fact, neither did any of the other hubbies. it was our first "girls week" at the vacation house. brian & brad got to come friday night, but they only came for the golf, and sadly for them it was much too windy on saturday to get in a good round.

nash came down with a high fever on tuesday and quit eating. he was so lethargic that he slept during most of pool time {which i must admit was nice for my sunbathing efforts}. i tried each day to get him to swim but he wasn't having it. he'd hang on to me for dear life {see picture}. by friday the fever finally subsided only to be followed by a rash {which was the telltale sign for alison and grandma whose children have experienced this}. turns out it was roseola, which is now gone, but his immune system was so weak that he now is battling a little case of thrush. will it ever end? the doctor assured me it will-after i had a near breakdown in his office sunday night feeling like the worst mommy ever for having a child who is perpetually sick.


and all that sunbathing? well i now look like a racoon. i'm not sure if it's because prior to this trip i had managed to let myself become more pale than ever in my life or if it's because my pregnant state forced me to sit more upright and tan only the front of my body. either way, i now have white eyebrows above my real dark eyebrows and white circles under my eyes where i normally have dark circles. go figure, huh? now i'm debating some serious facial scrubs or peels to get back to my former pale, yet non-freaky facial coloration...oh, and this not-so-great picture is the ONLY picture i am willing to let out in the public eye {the rest contain WAY too much cleavage-i keep wondering if i'm growing triplets...}

alison and i are both pregnant and this was our only chance to get some pictures together with our big bellies. here we are at 35 and 28 weeks. next time we see alison i'll have had haven and she'll be close to having her little girl. i'm excited for haven to have a cousin her age, even if we don't see them everyday. nash has been in a world of his own, even with his two girl cousins just a year or so ahead of him. once they're all older it won't seem like a big age difference at all, but right now it sure does.

I was sad as I went through my pics that I didn't have any of Nash and you. I think the fact that he was sick and sleeping most of the time kept him out of the spotlight. I am glad he is getting better.

It was fun times playing with you guys! And shut up about the whale comments because I already hate your tiny pregnant body.
