Three Day Weekend

Our "weekend" (aka Thursday afternoon) started off like this:
I picked up Cole at the babysitter's and he had the start of this rash on his face and a little under his arms. We went right to the doctor and found out that he had the start of hives due to the antibiotic he'd been taking. So, our weekend started early and I stayed home with Cole on Friday. It's a good thing I did because he was taking Benadryl and Tylenol every 6 hours and looked like this:
The hives definitely got worse, more of them and larger red spots. He didn't seem to feel too bad once we had the medicines going. He never acted like they were itchy either. He had times where he acted pretty pitiful though. So we had a nice, relaxing Friday where he could relax and catch up on sleep at home.

During one of his naps, I was able to make a new fall wreath for our front door. I had gotten the materials earlier in the week and was planning on working on it this weekend, but since I had time on Friday, I got it all done. It's brown & white polka dot fabric wrapped around a straw wreath. Then I hot-glued some pumpkins and the bow on the bottom. Pretty easy!
Saturday Tony and I did our last longer run (10 & 13 miles) before the marathon next weekend. Then Cole and I went to a birthday party for the son of one of my fellow teachers on my team. He's turning 3 and they had a bounce house that all the kids enjoyed even in the rain! It took Cole a little while to warm up to the idea of going inside and jumping around, but he finally did it just in time before the rain started. We watched Ben open presents and had birthday cake too. Cole almost put his hand right in Ben's birthday cake while I was throwing away our plate! Yikes! We had a great time though, and Cole was asleep in the car before we even left their neighborhood!
Today has pretty pretty low key. We did shorter runs today, went to the grocery store, and got a few things for our trip next weekend. We are also watching the Ryder Cup, of course. We've had a relaxing pre-Chicago weekend plus an extra day. Cole is feeling and looking much better today. He just has faint red marks in some areas and has started refusing to take his medicines. So I know we are almost in the clear!
