We're Baaack!

It seems like forever since I have actually had time, or the energy to post. The flu really took it's toll on us for a good 10-12 days. The girls were just miserable and it wasn't pretty. That combined with me working CRAZY hours at work, and both of the girls having medical appointments at the U of M lead us to needing a break!

So, we headed to the Waterpark of America on Friday and spent the entire weekend there, just the four of us. It was so much fun to see the girls having fun, especially Kenna. She LOVED being there and was so happy to spend all of her time in the little kiddie park. Kya was just happy to be with us. She's a people girl--it's all about who she is with, not what she's doing.

It was great for the girls to have the one on one time with each of us, and is helping Kya learn to trust that we are the ones who will always care for her. She is struggling to understand that we are not just another set of caregivers in a series of many in her short life. The hours that I am working at work aren't helping there either, because some days I barely see her if at all. So, we needed the reconnect time.
It was hard to get pics, because we were busy playing, but here are a few from the weekend. Some from the waterpark (check out the intensity of Makenna on the slide--too cute!) and some around the hotel. Man, I have beautiful kiddos--wish I could take the credit for that! :)
