The Reunion

we had a fun time. we played games, went sightseeing like tourists, and nobody broke any bones.

actually, one of my nephews showed up in a cast. according to my sister his leg wasn't broken. with all the running around he did his cast was starting to deteriorate. nursemom talked to the doctor's office on the phone and then my sister, sarah, talked to them. they said that we could take the cast off and see how he does. mrbusdr has lots of power tools in his garage. sarah held the boy while the cast came off. i couldn't watch. now i know that this is his grandchild so mrbusdr is gonna be super careful, but i still couldn't watch. i saw about the first ten seconds and left.

we played a couple rounds of bob. i wish i'd kept a page to post it here. they were pretty funny, except one player seemed to have a facination with potty humor. i tried to make it adults only, but that was shot down. we also played dutch blitz, scattergories, and boggle. i wish we'd played taboo. that's one of my favorite games.

we went to virginia city and walked around there. i can't understand why anybody would live there. the roads are too steep. i'd freak out in the wintertime. it is a cute town with an old timey charm, but that wouldn't be enough to get me there when it snows. we also went to lake tahoe. nobody swam, but we waded in the water. afterwards i had to change andrews clothes 'cause he was so wet. my sister yelled to me that is wasn't a nude beach. ha ha, very funny.

so now i'm sick. i got sick yesterday. we'll see how long it lasts. i can't afford to go to the doctor since i have no medical insurance, so i'll just have to wait it out. apparently one of my sisters got sick, too.

I've been living on NyQuil, DayQuil, and Halls cough drops. Oh, and plenty of tissues with the lotion built in.

Wow, she got really sick. My boys just got runny noses. The doctor said that his foot just had a minor injury and he's doing great without the cast so I don't think we'll need to put another one on. Bob was fun. I liked the Safety Kids story. Good times. I also think I saw a lady in Carson City who police might be looking for. I could not make out the color of her shirt or pants but I do know that she was really loud.

glad you made it safe and sound, and I am glad about Dougan's foot. Hope the sniffles don't turn into anything major. Thanks again for braving it alone with the children. Love, MOM

I hate being sick...but at least you weren't sick while your family was here. :)

glad you had a great time.
