St. George, the Clinic & Valentine's Day

After leaving Las Vegas we headed on to St. George to spend a couple of days.  We just hung out at Grandma & Grandpa's Utah House (as Sawyer likes to call it) did a couple of projects, watched some movies (Marc and I even got to go to the movie theater to see a movie...alone...always a special treat), celebrated Valentine's Day and took Harper to the doctor.  We wanted to take the kids to see Gnomeo & Juliet (we have a thing for gnomes) but it didn't happen since we had a sick baby.  It was actually nice being with the grandparents with a sick kid.  Nancy watched Sawyer so Marc could go to the clinic with me.  It turns out Harper just had a lot of congestion (but no pneumonia) and an ear infection.  Harper was a trooper.  She slept a lot of our vacation but she didn't spend a lot of time crying...which would have made things miserable for everyone.

Grandma & Sawyer did some coloring while Marc supervised.  Marc had picked out some neon Crayola markers for Sawyer to try out, they were quite the hit.

Harper checked out the golf balls on the putting green...

While Sawyer worked on her swing (and her kick...and her toss...not so sure golf is going to be the sport for her).

Harper woke up on Valentine's Day morning all smiles, even though she had been miserable the night before with a high fever.  She does this new "shy" thing where she closes her eyes and shrugs her shoulders...it is totally adorable.

Our first Valentine's Day as a family of four.

We brought presents with us for the girls.  I tried to get them both things that they could play with while we were away from home.

I love these glasses.  Sadly, we lost them somewhere along the way and they didn't make it back home with us.

Marc loves the glasses too.

Sometimes it is close to impossible to get a picture of both of the girls looking at the camera at the same time.

Sawyer's cold sure turned her into a nose picker.  Hmmm, not sure I like that so much.

Our sweet little Valentine's.  Runny noses and all.

Sawyer did a little crafting...

And Grandma got in lots of loves.

By mid-afternoon Harper was not looking so good so we took her to the doc.  She was put on a 10-day cycle of amoxicillin.  The medicine got rid of her fever almost instantly and she seemed much better, I just cannot stand the way her pee smells while she is taking this stuff...it smells like she is on a strict diet of asparagus.  Disgusting.

Our next stop after St. George was Bear Lake where I did a little extreme sledding.  I am the one in the blue...the one that does not crash...and the one that wins the race :)  More pictures to come!
