Just popping in to say hello! We are on vacation in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. While I wish we could say we are having a wonderful time, it's been anything but! You won't even believe the mini crisises that we've experienced. Things are turning around though, and I think that we might be able to salvage these last few beach days.
I have gotten some cute beach pics and can't wait to post those when we get home. (I might even download them to my husband's laptop...which is what I'm using.)
The first leg of our trip involved a stop in Huntsville, AL where we stayed with some new friends. They had a barbeque in our honor and we had a blast getting to know all of their neighbors and friends. Chris already knew several of them from attendance at the National Fire Academy over the past few years. Their hospitality was greatly appreciated.
Our first full day at the condo in Myrtle Beach involved Chris and I taking shifts with a very sick Benjamin. We think the culprit was food poisoning and I am sharing a link that I discovered while doing some research on this issue. I will probably be contacting both Kraft Foods and the FDA with regard to our Capri Sun disaster. And for the record....Mary was very sick too, but no vomiting was involved. UGH!!! I really can't prove that Capri Sun(s) were the culprit, but that is the only thing that both kiddos drank in the car on the drive from Kansas City to Myrtle Beach and Chris and I did not drink any and are fine. Benjamin started getting sick in the hotels along the way and it culminated once we arrived at our condo. It was ugly...literally and figuratively.
I think I'm once again a fan of preservatives. That and H2O!!!
If you are a parent and buy these juice pouches for your kiddos..beware! Our drink pouches were not punctured or damaged in any way, but I'm still suspicious. How can a juice pouch be good until 2011 if it doesn't contain preservatives? Hmmmm...
I apologize for the lack of photos and anchors in this post. I've been using Windows Live Writer for so long now that I've forgotten how to link in Blogger and have been spoiled!
Wishing you all a great week! We are off to the Ripley's Believe it or Not Aquarium museum on the strip in Myrtle Beach. Mary is beyond excited!!!
