I’ve been sick all week. I started feeling bad Sunday night after church and I’ve spent the entire week trying to rest so I could feel better. I’ve taken naps and done breathing treatments. I promise, I’ve been a good girl!
I started feeling a bit better on Friday and the kids were out of school so we decided to venture out into nature to see what trouble we could get into. We visited the Northlake Nature Center and saw turtles swimming in the swamp. (No alligators this time!)
I brought my camera because I wanted to capture a few photos of Brandon for his six year old portraits. I swear, every time I turn around he’s grown two inches taller. Stinker!
We also saw this very prickly scene. There were several bees swarming on a very sharp, HUGE thistle plant. It was probably at least three feet tall. Jordan told me to quit taking pictures before I got stung. She had a point, I had to get really close because I had my 50mm lens on my camera. I didn’t get stung though!
We also went to Fountainbleau State Park so the kids could play in the sand. I didn’t think it would be warm enough to wade, but the kids just rolled up their pants and headed in.
Alexis loves wading in the water but she’s always willing to take a break so she can pose for a photo. I stayed on the beach because by this time my chest felt tight and I could tell I was spiking a fever again.
I let them play for a while longer and we headed home so I could take another breathing treatment. I was miserable for the rest of the night and I’ve paid for it all day as well. I guess I was wrong when I thought I was well enough to go out.
