Jenna

It was nice for Ryan to have an extra day off work. Although it didn't turn out like we had hoped, it was still nice to have Ryan for a day! Ryan & I took one of our friends from the ward to the church parking lot to teach her how to drive a stick shift. She did a great job and Ryan is an awesome teacher!
Yesterday for Memorial Day, we rented bikes and a trailer (since we didn't get our own in time) and rode the a part of the Green Belt I haven't ever been on before. It was so nice and beautiful, we really enjoyed it. We actually had both Adam and Jenna in the trailer and they did great together. Jenna had been fussy all day, running a fever, etc. but she was a real trooper.
We ended the night by taking Jenna to the hospital to see what was wrong with her. The fever was lingering around 103, she had a terrible cough, hard time swallowing, not eating, difficulty breathing at times, etc, etc. We found that she has croup so the doctor gave us a one time steroid to help and sent us on our way. Jenna had a rough night, but we survived and she's a bit more chipper today, so hopefully we are on our way to recovery!
Jenna has decided she likes to crawl up on things. Last night while doing dishes, I turn to put some things in the dish washer and there she is, ready to help. But her favorite thing to climb on is Adam's "activity" table. She tries and succeeds to climb on that every chance she gets.

Mindy- I am sorry to hear about Jenna going to the hospital. I hate being that worried and having them be that sick. I hope she is feeling better. Love you. Sara

I hope Jenna is feeling better. It is the worst when you have to take your children to the hospital. Days never seem to go as planned anymore.

That's too bad that Jenna got croup, but glad to hear that she is on the mend. I love that picture of her standing on the dishwasher. So cute!

Mindy I hope Jenna recovered quickly. Croup is no fun, but that steroid seems to really do the trick. All your pictures are really cute. How fun for your kids to get to play with a kitten. Your blog looks cute, good job. Just so you know, most of the extra stuff like music, maps, & slide shows that you see on other blogs you can usually click on them from their blog and it will take you to the site where you can make your own.
