Pedicures and Pediatricians

One of the presents that my parents gave my sister Camille and I was a trip to get a pedicure. It was so nice to sit and relax and be pampered. I loved spending that time with Camille.

When we got home, Emmy loved our toes so much that we thought that she would enjoy getting her toes painted and she did. She held so still while Aunt Millie painted her toes. She was so excited to show off her toes to any one who would look. Even still when her socks come off she loves to admire Aunt Millie's handiwork. It is so cute to see her painted toes poke out of her high heels she got for Christmas.The boys wanted to join in on the action and have their toes painted and Camille did much to Brandon's dismay. The boys thought that it was pretty cool and haven't thought about it again since.The only downside to our trip to Utah is that we spent three days at the Pediatricians office. Two ear infections, one round of strep (the second round would come when we got home from the trip) two upper respiratory infections, one hand, foot and mouth disease, a trip to the hospital to get an x-ray, and a lot of coughing and discomfort lead to lots of snuggles and hugs. I am sure grandma and grandpa didn't mind the extra snuggles and naps.
We were grateful for the doctors who were so good and generous towards our family.

Being sick is the pits. Hope everyone is feeling better. I love that the boys wanted their toes painted too. Shae would have the same reaction Brandon did.

Cute toes! But poor kiddos! It is such a bummer to get sick on vacation.

I had strep the last time I went to Utah too! Maybe it is Utah! ;D

Painting little piggies is so much fun. I'm glad you guys had fun but what a bummer to get sick too. I hope you are all feeling better!

That is so sad! It seems like sicknesses always hit at the holidays, not so festive. But I'm glad you're all feeling better!

What an eventful trip. So stressful with all the sickness. I'm glad you were in the comfort of you parents' home though.

One time when I came home from a pedicure, Jordan thought my toes were so pretty and she touched one. Too bad it was all the way dry and it ruined that toe!
