Ice and water… Day 1044 25SEP11
Joshua had another pretty busy day. I sense a pattern developing here :)
We got up and lazed around the house for a bit until lunch time when we ate and headed out to the rink for the afternoon skate. Renee went along as our official observer. We had a good skate, Joshua got tired after a while and decided to take it easy for the second half. He has been going at it pretty hard lately. Jarrod and I stayed out on the ice and finished out the session.
We got cleaned up and out of our gear and then jumped in the car to head off to Scott and Avery's Birthday party. It had been raining profusely most for the day and they had an outdoor swim thing planned but it all worked out great. The rain slacked off to a steady drizzle and the kids were already wet so they didn't even notice. They had a giant inflatable water slide and all of Avery's girlfriends in attendance. The boys were out numbered quite badly but they took it in stride. We had lots of food to eat and some yummy cake and ice cream later on.
I am guessing that the boys went down the water slide somewhere in the neighborhood of a million times over the next couple of hours. The only thing that stopped them was the suns hasty retreat to the horizon. I swear they were trying to see if the vinyl of the slide would wear out. The party was great and we all had fun spending the afternoon and evening with all the family.
Needless to say all the kids are pretty tuckered out and should sleep soundly. In the morning Joshua has clinic and his vincristine and pentam breathing treatment. We also are taking the lock off of the steroids monster cage for the next five days. We have stocked up on grilled cheese sandwich makings and pancake batter in preparation.
