Fun Day in the Sun
So today was another glimpse into possibly nicer weather. It was upper 40's or low 50's (a little chilly but nice) and SUNNY! So what a perfect day to neglect all the household chores and purging and to go outside ALL day! Basically from noon until 4 - we were outside playing. I found the playset I have been looking for on craigslist and my mom said she would buy it - so my neighbor was kind enough to help pick it up in his truck last night and then I put it together today (with the help of Ashli, Nathan, Carter, Angie, Kelly, McKenna and Gavin). It is perfect for the space I wanted it in and for the littler kids to play in. Even crawlers can enjoy it as there are tunnels, etc to play in - but the big kids loved it too (with 2 slides and a small tunnel to crawl through for them).
The second we got inside Gavin fell asleep. Unfortunately, when he woke up he had a super nasty rash - almost like a sunburn/sunpoisoning rash ALL over his back and chest. It was red with goosebumps and clearish little bumps. Poor thing was scratching himself on furniture, with forks, hair brushes - anything to relieve his itch. The doctor thinks it may be a strep rash - but I think it is from grass. It is sporing time here in Columbus and I know he has had reactions (although different from this one) before. We'll see. Anyway - we all enjoyed getting outside and forgetting about cleaning and purging for a while!
