Too Much Fun, Not a Lot of Sleep

***Zach doesn't have fifth's disease! Praise the LORD. He had an allergic reaction to something, and we're going to watch his rash the next few days to make sure it disappears completely. I am so thankful it's nothing worse! If you read my post earlier today, thank you for praying!

Jason and I spent the weekend with five of my high school besties and a few of their hubbies at his grandparents' lakehouse (we missed you, Suzanne!). The girls did nothing but talk, play games, eat, talk, laugh, talk, and laugh some more! It was an amazing refreshing weekend other than not sleeping much...but it was TOTALLY worth it.

Benjamin and Zach playing ball before we left for the lakehouse. No kids this trip! Zach had a wonderful time with Jason's and my parents.

Grampy and Grammie made us breakfast both mornings. There is nothing like waking up in the morning to the smell of eggs, biscuits, bacon, and sausage cooking in the kitchen. What a treat!

The guys (Brad, Josh, and Jason) rode four wheelers most of Saturday. Too cold for the girls! How could we talk anyway while riding four wheelers!? I mean really.

There just aren't words to describe how unbelievable these friends are. I am SO blessed to have them in my life. I am so thankful they took time away from their normal everyday lives to get together. I know it's not easy!

These flowers make me SO happy! When we picked Zach up yesterday at my parents' house, all of these beautiful bushes were blooming in their front yard. Spring is almost here!

On a sad note, we think Zach has fifth's disease. This rash appeared on his body when we got home last night. It's a common viral skin disease that appears on a child's face, arms, and legs. Apparently, whenever the rash breaks out this means he's not contagious anymore. That is at least good news. We think he got it last week. He is doing much better this morning, thank goodness!
I have also heard that it may be dangerous for a pregnant woman to be around a child with fifth's disease (it could be harmful to the unborn baby). SO...obviously I've been exposed, and I am anxious and just want to know that everything is alright with Zach and our little baby . I'm waiting to hear back from the doctor to get us in today to test Zach, and then if necessary I will have to be tested. If you think about us, please pray that he heals quickly and everything is fine with the baby and me, too. THANKS!

It looks like you had a wonderful weekend! That is so neat that you are still so close to your HS best friends.

I'm sorry Z has that rash. I was exposed to Fifths disease 3 times while I was pregnant and teaching. All the kids kept passing it around! It was scary, but Brody was just fine. I'll be praying for Z, you, and the baby!

Hi Katie~
So glad to hear that Zach doesn't have fifth's disease! And wow, congratulations on your new baby coming this summer! :) Our first two were really close together~ under 17 months~ but it worked out fine. We didn't plan it that way, but I couldn't have planned it better. I know it sounds crazy, but they have always got along so well!

I am glad you had such a fun weekend with your friends this past weekend! :) Have a great week and take good care of yourself! :)
