Another busy day

We had planned to go bowling... we showed up and the place was dark!  Turns out the water was off and they could not "legally" let us in.  I had to explain this to my disappointed children and 3 other children that I had with me.  They promised they wouldn't drink any water.  Well, I had to explain it was more complicated than that... Like how they could not use the bathroom if they needed to go, etc. etc...

So we slowly dragged our feet away from the bowling alley and we all buckled up and headed to the park!  They played for about an hour and a half and wanted to leave!  But they played well together while we were there!
 So we left and headed over to Jenna's house and...
 had a great time!
 Check him out!
 Too funny, huh?!  What a life!  ;)
 Afterwards we came home and quickly set out again...
 To see Jim at the hospital.  He is better now.  But, he has been in the hospital since Monday  night. His heart was not doing so well and he has had a few tests done, lots of needles poked in him, and lots of cameras in him to see how his heart is.  He has been attached to some monitor or other for the last 4 nights and the children couldn't see him while he was in ICU.  (This made MG very sad and she cried while I was visiting Jim that night.)  Now, he can be out of his bed.   He is no longer hooked up but is still being monitored.  His heart is doing better... nothing too critical. So we are relieved...
 But at least this visit, he was allowed children as visitors.  The children were happy to see him and have him explain all the things that he went through the last 4 nights and what all those tubes were still connected to him!

 And true to Jim's character, he put the boys on the bed and gave each of them a ride!  :0
And we found a nice place to put his bouquet of flowers that they made for him:
 After a few hours the children were done.  MD wanted to explore the monitors and we thougt it best to not explore that in case he hitsome button that would start up something!  You never know with MD.  He is very curious!!!  So we eventually left Jim, grabbed a bite to eat so we could avoid the traffic back home.  On the way home we decided to stop at Toys R Us to pick up a birthday present for James who is turning 6 tomorrow.  SIX!!! I can hardly believe it!  And look what my goofy boy found... a Fred Flintstone car.  I had to take a picture he looked so cute!  :)

I am so happy Friday is here.... Tomorrow we will start out slow, hang out at home, do a few fun projects, and then end up at James' birthday party for the rest of the evening.  It will be fun!
