Amber, Katy and I left New Port Richey on Friday night (May 28) to get away from the storms. Good thing, we didn’t have any storms on I-75 northbound. It was all good. Girls were very cooperate with me all the way. Meemaw was so happy that we arrived safe. The following night, Amber had a high fever of 102.5. I was rushed to Wal-Mart to get her the medication but I bought the Cough and Cold. Amber went to bed!
Following Saturday (May 29) morning, Amber woke me up at 9:30am. I’m shock that I slept all morning. I really needed that! Thanks girls for letting me sleep more! Amber told me that she felt so good. One hour later, her fever went up just a little bit. I decided to go back to Wal-Mart again which I brought Kaitlynn along with me. We went shopping for ourselves and for Lee and Chase birthday. Again gave Amber the Children’s Advil medication (it does seem working better). By 4pm, we all went to Blue Crab Festival at downtown Palatka. First of all, we wanted to go on helicopter ride. We waited in the line for about 1 hours and 30 min. Grandpa clocked the ride time and told me it was 1 min and 30 sec. I was like all that for $10 per person! Let’s see how it goes! The first person get on the helicopter: Me and Katy! Katy have no fear! 1 min and 30 sec later. Grandpa and Amber went second. Meemaw doesn’t want to go on a ride but at least did she rode on camel.
“It was great! I went with my mommy! I see water, and flying up so high,” said Kaitlynn.
” AWESOME! I saw the water and the big bridge. And the people were so tiny. I love all of it,” said Amber.
Oh, did you know that we went to Israel?!? NOT! Girls didn’t get any fear of riding the camel. We went to petting zoo. As you see the picture of little brown goat, he’s only 4 weeks old! Imagine how little this goat is! I finally got a chance to feed him. He’s so cute! Amber and Kaitlynn tried to catch the guinea pigs. They’re hard to catch but they got the baby bunnies. We stayed at the Blue Crab till 8pm. It sure does not feel like 4 hours of walking around and seeing all those good and funny things. Once we got back home, Kaitlynn fast asleep! I went straight to bed! I was dead tired! Amber and Meemaw stayed up to watch movies “Bedtime Stories”.
On Sunday, May 30, We went to church. Afterward, we all went to Crescent Beach to see my old friend, Karen and Derek! Yep, it sure was fun hanging out with them. Total of 5 kids are playing, jumping and talking! We the mothers are enjoying our time! We left at 2:30pm! By the time, we arrive back home, we miss the storms! WOW! And no, we didn’t get any sunburn! That’s a start!
I finally get a chance to see my long overdue friends which I haven’t seen them in years! Yep, its April and Jenn. We chatted away but my girls like them! They talked to them and sit on their laps! I love that! We got a pictures of us together also April and I gave the bunny ears to my girls! I just want to see all my old friends which I haven’t seen them in ages!
After dinner, we celebrate Amber and Kaitlynn birthday early. Which we won’t be coming up on 4th of July. I have to work the next day! Bummer! I already gave Meemaw the boys (Lee and Chase) gifts if they’re coming down! Amber and Kaitlynn LOVE their new sleepy bag. It a good sleepy bag that we can always use in many years!
The next day, May 31, We took Meemaw to Davenport Park in St. Augustine. Meemaw had a grand time there but the weather was just perfect! Not too hot for her! Then I treat Meemaw to have some organic ice cream. She loves the chocolate with walnuts topping. I had wild berry with granola topping. Both girls have chocolate with mini M&M. Why would they wanted M&M? Look like they have double chocolate! Oh boy!
On the way back to Palatka, we just drove through the rain! Finally, my car definitely need a car wash. LOL! I started to load up the stuffs in the car before we headed home. We all says our good byes! Amber cried that she doesn’t want to leave and wanted to stay here all summer long. I told her that she only have 9 more days till school over (June 9, that’s right). We got home (New Port Richey) at 6:30pm! What a crazy days we’re having……
