Here are some pictures from this weekend. I found this plastic pool with a slide and sprinkler at a yard sale for $5 - I figured I'd get $5 worth of use out of it. Randy and I set it up on the back porch and let the kids make a mess - um - I mean "play" in it. After a brief protest "K" decided that cold water wasn't that bad after all. Of course the added playmates made it more appealing, too.
Update on allergy/hives: The hives are gone, but when they cleared up she broke out in little blisters. No one seems to have a clue as to what they are, or what may have caused them. The doctor doesn't think chicken pox because they are only on her arms and legs. He did say it would be a good idea to keep her away from other kids while they heal up - since we don't know what they are. We have missed all our friends at church and care group the past 2 weeks. Good news is they are almost completely cleared up! There are just a few remaining on her arms. There are light scars on her legs where they used to be, but they are getting lighter every day and I don't think they will leave a permanent mark.
As far as what triggered the allergic reaction a few weeks ago: we think we've narrowed it down to Ibuprofen. She had a couple of doses 2 days before she broke out, but I was told that the liver in infants takes longer to process things so it is possible to have a delayed reaction of a day or so from having the medication.
