Also upon arrival - Jake ended up at instacare with what we thought was strep. Nope - just a virus.

Kyle also needed to go to the doctor - and I don't remember what he had - but he got put on an antibiotic, steroids for his lungs, and 2 other ones...forgetting now. I LOVE it when I got out of town and my kids health freaks out...

Ears Pierced

Another thing we needed to take care of when we got home - was getting Haley's ear's re-pierced. She had them pierced a few years ago - but shortly after they were pierced, Troy and I went out of town. An earring came out, and the whole closed. Upon our arrival home, Kristin's ears were so infected that puss was coming out - it was bad - so we took them all out and let them close up. Free from infection. Lately, Haley has been begging for her ears to be pierced, but I wouldn't let her until we got back from our trip. I didn't want a re-peat of last time. Because she has been begging for so long to do this - she did not cry. Not even a tear. This face - is the closest she got to being sad.

But soon, she got the mirror and got to see her new studs.
All was well. A family watched the whole thing with Haley and decided to get their daughters ears pierced since she did so well. I have learned with Haley - that if she really wants it - she won't complain. I love that about her.

Spring Break

We got home from Europe just in time for our Kids Spring Break. We wanted to make sure we were home so that we could do family things while they were out of school. Troy continued to take the week off. The first thing we did our kids have been dying to do for awhile...that is going to Airborne. It's a trampoline place where they play dodgeball and jump. They loved it!

Then we - of course - had to do the Easter Festivities. We went to Copperton as usual for the Easter Egg Hunt.
. This year we also decided to do something a bit different. We did our own Egg hunt for our kids in the backyard. We got candy we actually like, and 100 eggs. Troy and I hid them and then each kid got to find 25. It was awesome. We hid some pretty hard - and the kids kept coming and asking for hints. We amazingly found all 100. I get so sick of the egg hunts that aren't 'hunts'. That's the whole point!
On Easter Sunday the kids put on their best duds and we went to church.
Afterwards we took a big extended family photo with the Korths,
(we are still missing a brother and his family - 7 people total) but with Jon and Donnarae in town - we went ahead with the photo. We ate dinner and did an egg hunt with the extended Peterson side. I missed my brothers and their families. Wish they weren't so far away.
