The haps around here

Happy two months, Cayman!!

The haps around here lately are as follows.

1. I love summer vacation
2. I miss my two oldest children who went on a road trip with Grandma and Papa
3. I do not miss Brian's crutches and neither does he. (Still in a cast but can walk
on it now.)
4. I have not decided whether or not I miss my gallbladder, which was taken out a week ago following a trip to the ER with chest pain. That's four surgeries in seven weeks for this family, but who's counting?
5. My baby is two months old today!! And in case anyone doubted my childrens' ability to double their birth weight in two months, see the following pictures.

Remember Jake, the measuring stick?
Either Jake shrunk or Cayman has supersized.
You be the judge.

Here he is in all his tough cuteness.
Here we are--all of us. Finally posed for our first family picture.
And then we cut off Windsyr's hair and buzzed Staten's. It's kind of a summer tradition.

Here is Brian in his walking cast,

And me back in the hospital?

And our sweetie in the hospital
for tubes in her ears.

Now we hope we are done with the drama for a while.

I'll end on a positive note. I got the perfect chicken sandwich from McDonalds recently. I'm not kidding. Look at this bun...could you photo shop a more perfect bun than this? I don't think so.

I'm glad everyone is on the mend.

Love the post as usual!! You have a beautiful family.
I can't believe all the medical drama. I haven't stepped foot in a hospital since I took Kamrie when she was about 3 months old!! (Knocking on wood!)

Ok, I love those crazy chicken sandiwches. Although I'm trying to not eat them so much!

You had to have your gallbladder out too?! I hated that surgery...sorry you had to have it done.

I'm happy to hear you are ALL feeling better...what a spring/summer! Here's to healthy Maughans!!!

Love the haircuts. I just choppped all mine off. Looking at yours makes me miss it, beautiful SIB! Miss you!

Enough hospital visits, okay?

Happy Summer.

Okay, so I was just getting razzed by a friend who was begging for me to update my way outdated blog and I was complaining because now that it is summer, I just don't have the time. Now I feel quite silly for not updating it--I have no excuse but that I am tired--right now that is--it is 11 and I am going to sleep. I love summer but the late nights are just kicking my butt. I am used to at least 2 solid hours of quiet to do as I please as well as 2 hours during the day and I just don't have that anymore.

Anyway, beautiful family! I miss you! I will see you at the end of July!

AJ misses Staten. If these grandparents that kidnapped them are the very ones that live in Lindon, well, we need to get the boys together to swim or something!!!

Sorry about your gall bladder surgery and all the hospital visits. Your kids are so darling. Hopefully we can come visit now the kids are out of school. Have a great summer!
