Saturday morning I called the pediatrician on-call to find out how Drew's calcium labs looked. He said they were in normal range so yesterday was the first day in over 4 years that Drew didn't take his calcium! One more blood test next Friday and then we can officially kiss the calcium goodbye! We decided to make an impromptu trip up to Daffodil Hill to see the beautiful daffodils. Unfortunately the weather wasn't cooperating and it was cold and foggy. The flowers still looked pretty though and we got some cute pictures. Poor Drew was freezing and Dan had to keep him wrapped up in his jacket. We ended up stopping for lunch at a tiny little Mexican restaurant in Jackson that wasn't really prepared for our party of 7 adults and 6 children. It took about two hours to finish our meal and then we made the hour drive back down to Sac. And then we remembered that we need to pick up the dang medication at the pharmacy! So we went on the way home and didn't get home until 5:00. We had made plans to have friends over for dinner at 5:30 so we rushed to get the house cleaned up before they arrived. We ended up having enough time to clean up before they got here and then we had a really fun time with them, although it was a little hectic with the five kids running/crawling around. After dinner I was exhausted!
This morning we got everyone ready for church and out the door by 10 am. Dan and I ended up volunteering to work in children's church so we didn't hear the sermon. But it was fun to be with the preschoolers. They are all getting so big! Then Drew had a birthday party for one of his preschool friends at 1. And I had to leave around 2 for a birthday party for one of my friends. I ended up getting home a little after five and then we went to Target for some essentials and then to the bike store to try and replace some of our equipment, but it was closed! So we headed home, had leftovers for dinner and Dan ordered our biking stuff over the phone. Phew. Maybe next week will be relaxing.
