I must say that this vacation turned out to be GREAT! I think it was something our family definitely needed. Seems like it's hard to keep a good thing going though. On Friday evening Charlotte woke from her nap burning hot! I panicked of course and straight to the drug store for some Tylenol. With a fever of 102.4 I began wishing we were home so that I could call the Dr. Saturday, I medicated Charlotte and we made it back to the beach house around 8p.m. I called the phone nurse and she referred me to the Evening Clinic. Let me just say that the Evening Clinic was not a good experience. Seems Charlotte had an ear infection, or so the Dr. thought. Tuesday I took Charlotte to see Dr. Donna because she still didn't seem to be herself. Seems somehow Charlotte and Emma and Lily have the hand, foot, and mouth virus which causes very painful blisters and high fevers. So, with nothing to treat this virus with, its just a wait it out and tend to 3 little girls who are VERY whinny!

Ok, so the school girls are out of school and I decided a few weeks ago that I wanted to "try" and get our family on vacation as soon as possible. I found a nice place at Ocean Lakes and off to the beach we went. The first week out of school and at the beach, what a way to start summer vacation. I had some reservations about going to the beach with Charlotte, Dr. Horne gave me a 30 minute sun exposure limit and I thought what would be the use in going. Well it turns out that those 30 minutes was the best 30 minutes of every day. Charlotte absolutely LOVED the beach, the feel of the sand on her feet and hands and the waves rolling in over her legs.
