Man I was having major issues this week logging into this account. A cyberfriend added a group to google. So I joined and somehow managed to make a new google account. Then I couldn't get into this account or do anything with the blog. So I deleted the other one just now and got in. I was really worried that I'd have to start all over again. Whew!

So the twins have Coxsackie Virus, (Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease)! They have been fussy and had low grade fevers since Sunday. Well they are fever free now. Monday they started breaking out in these red blisters. Samantha has/had blisters all over her feet, a few on her hands, several on her diaper line, and tons of blisters in her mouth and on her tongue. Mallory has some on her hands, her butt is covered in them, and I think she has some on her mouth as well. They don't want to eat anything. Poor things. I feel so bad for them! I stayed home with them on Monday and Bryan stayed home on Tuesday. Wednesday they had been fever-free for 24 hours so they went back to Mrs. Sherry's house. I hope they get back to normal soon!

Not much else going on. Raegan is busy with soccer and gymnastics. And we're going to Disney in 14 days! I've been shopping, shopping, shopping for things for our trip. I've also been clearing out the stores with all the summer clearance clothes for next year. I must stop buying stuff! They already have more clothes than I do!

I'll take some new pictures this week. Hope everyone is having a great week!

We headed to Iowa over Labor Day weekend to say farewell to Uncle Bill. We stayed with Noreen's parents out in Victor and had a good time. The memorial was great. Dari Barn was awesome. The kids were all good. And did I say Dari Barn was awesome?

Telling secrets in downtown Grinnell.

Oh how I will miss the Dari Barn. My ass, notsomuch.

Next to the Dari Barn is a tractor sales places. Good place to hang out.

Getting ready to head to the memorial.

The big girls on the Broad Street porch.

The family at Bowers' prairie. Grandma and Grandpa as 'sprinkled' there and now Bill is too. The Bowers' prairie was dedicated to Grandpa Edd and is near the soccer fields at Grinnell College.

The Bowers' grandkids. Most of them.

Riding the riding lawn mower was fun!
