|We went straight from the hospital to the backyard! |
And we added a pink "faux-hawk" to celebrate Toucie's growing hair.
I guess this is the expression that people with mohawks are supposed to wear.
|sprinkler + trampoline = big fun|
|...um yeah...she's feeling better...i told her her face might "stick" this way!|

|in the Emergency Room|
|our team works hard to help her feel better as quickly as possible|
|but we will have to stay in the hospital for several days|
and find ways to stay happy and busy
|we try to make Toucie's room as lovely, comforting, & warm |
|we bring bed linens, toys, and supplies from home|
and make decorations to brighten the room
|what to do while we wait to be released?|
a little painting...
|...a little playing...|
|...a little dancing...|
|...a little crafting...|
|...a little waterplay...|
(there are dolls having a pool party in that sink!)
|...a little movement...|
|...and a little silliness....|

|We made a return trip to the strawberry farm.|
I wanted to lay in a good supply for the coming months!
|And this time I brought along some picking power!|
|Toucie and my mom|
|Toucie was seduced by the chickens and bailed on us right away|
|The rest of soldiered on and came away with 3 gallons to take home|
|I've been dreaming of making a homemade version |
of the wonderful Mexican paletas we sometimes splurge on.
|We capped and diced some berries, warmed them with |
some honey,blended them up in the blender,
and froze them in our popsicle molds.
|Then we decided to freeze every fruit we had on hand.|
(Here are pear, cantaloup, peach, and strawberry)
|Ok, Summer...now we are ready!|
