On Saturday, August 27th; the day after my birthday.... we decided to spend the day out looking at some little shops in town. The girls were excited as they enjoy antiques, crafts and more and so do we!
Kathleen certainly looks the part of the perfect southern belle sitting on our front porch swing.
This mural was inside the coffee shop and Kathleen just loved the chickens as she misses ours so much!
This was one of the visitor centers but it wasn't open so we just took a picture of the pig through the window, lol.
Jerry also surprised me by suggesting we go look at a new van and trade my other one in. After the accident we just weren't feeling safe in it anymore after the repairs. So we traded it in for a new 2017 Toyota Sienna and I just love the color. :-) I've always loved this color for a van and have been wanting it forever :-) I'm very happy with it and we had a wonderful experience at the dealership!
We found a lovely local market with fresh meats, eggs, fruit, veggies and more! Always a joy to find these treasures nearby and to support small businesses! Notice we found local brown eggs?? Until we get chickens again it will work perfectly!!!
Unfortunately while we were out and about Hayley developed an allergic reaction to something but we are unable to pinpoint exactly what caused it and her lip swelled up really bad. We gave her benadryl but it kept getting worse so we spent most of the evening at the emergency room. They loaded her up with prednisone and benadryl and made sure there were no breathing difficulties :-( Since then we have been having a horrible time trying to get the hives under control and she hasn't been feeling well overall. Now she is on Allegra and a few other medicines and yesterday I took her to a new allergist and they sent her for blood work. Anxiously awaiting results as prior we have been to the pediatrician and ENT specialist and no answers. Please keep her in your prayers that we soon find an answer and some relief for her!
Below is an assignment Hayley had for Spanish to represent the 4 seasons in some way that she wanted and she loves Volkswagen bugs... so she created this gorgeous painting.... I absolutely love it and so did her teacher. :-) As soon as she gets it back we are framing it and hanging it up. She is truly a talented young artist.
Hope all is well with everyone, been super busy here with Hayley's health issues and the start of school, extra activities and launching my business and so much more! Hoping to catch up on everyone's blogs soon! :-)
