Flu Shot Day

We had flu shots a week or so ago. The kids had their flu shots done at the allergist's office since Nathan is severely allergic to eggs. They get their shots and we wait 30 minutes to make sure Nathan doesn't have a reaction. Last year, there was no reaction.   This year, there was a huge welt there! They put on a little anti-histamine cream and he was ok. 

Last year, the kids and I got the shot and didn't get the flu. Jeremy didn't get the shot and did get the flu. Since that happened, I decided to make sure the kids and I got the shot again even though there will always be the chance of Nathan reacting to the egg in the shot. 

I had to get the flu shot at one of the school districts flu clinics so after the kids' shots, we drove over to a school and I had my shot done. While I was in line for my shot, the kids and Jeremy played outside on the toys. It was a beautiful fall day so I snapped a few pictures as we were leaving.

As a guy and living a busy schedule, I never really think about getting sick. I've heard some of my work buddies mentioning their wife taking the kids to get the flu shot. After getting sick with the full and missing a week from work, I think I will get one next year, though I'll want to learn more about the side effects first.

Snow Mountains

Just needed to throw up a picture of the kids running across the snow mountains in the church parking lot. 

Cascade Mountains

Jeremy and I went to Seattle last week and I took some pretty pictures of the drive. 

We went the Snoqualmie Falls way and made a quick stop by the falls. It was 45 degrees so I thought it would feel warm compared to the 10 degrees it was at home. Yet it somehow still felt really cold? 


Elizabeth has been begging me for bangs for a while. They will take a bit more maintenance, but hopefully her hair is straight enough they will lie flat and not be too much to work with. Here she is with her new bangs.
