Get Me Out Of Here!!!!

When you can't leave your house, except to go for a walk to nowhere, it's not fun.
We are so sick and tired of being stuck at home. Watching Kai's buddies run around playing outside. Missing church. Driving past the park. Not being able to even go grocery shopping as a family. The other day we walked to Extra Foods and Gary stayed outside with the kids while I went in.
I'm thinking that they have had it for one week so the kids should be done with their contagiousness soon, especially Kai. Gary on the other hand has a few more days to go. Kai is so social and having to just play with us is getting so boring for him. Unfortunately, I was really good at playing dinosaurs which means I've had to play a lot of dinosaurs.

(Koen is looking much better! The blisters are all on the inside of his arm so you can't see them here. Kai got Koen a tortilla as a snack. That's Kai's favourite snack right now. Just plain. He can't eat much else due to his mouth blisters.)

I will say that the timing of this is really good as Gary has almost two weeks off between weddings so he doesn't have to worry about infecting anyone. Well, guess it's back to the family hike in the woods this afternoon. Oh ya, Kai is adamant that if we bring a baby girl into our home, her name needs to be Rose Petal. Yes, Rose Petal.

Enjoy your Sunday.


  1. I really hope everyone is feeling better soon (and not sick again for a LONG time!). Also, Rose Petal is a nice name :)

  2. Rose petal. That's so cute of him!! Thanks for last night, we all had a good time. Hope your kids get better soon - being cooped up isn't fun.

  3. Hmmm... maybe Kai shouldn't name the baby ;)
    Glad everyone is on the mend!

  4. Yes, we miss hanging out with you guys - get better!!!! Hope Gary better soon. Almost there - there is a light.
