On Wednesday night around midnight I heard some noises from Ryan's room (AKA, the pack in play in a spare bathroom) and sure enough my baby was covered in puke. Let me just say that was the beginning of puke fest 2015. Ha. Okay not really but sort of. Ryan was sick the rest of the time we were on vacation. Luckily he was a happy sick little guy. He was mostly very pleasant and would puke randomly. He was definitely more cuddly and he was much more calm than usual. He is usually running around getting into everything all the time. I'm sad he was sick but I was glad that if any of my kids had to be sick on vacation that it was him. At least he won't remember and he didn't know he was missing out on all the fun. I'm also very grateful that nobody else got sick while we were on vacation...more on that later.
We mostly spent the week eating, swimming, eating, watching movies, eating, playing games, eating. It was great! And despite dealing with a sick child Scott and I were still able to have a very relaxing, enjoyable time. We have had a very busy stressful year so it was really nice to just be shut up in a house with hardly any responsibilities. My big three pretty much fended for themselves the entire week. There were never too far from an iPad or a quick rummage through the snack pantry. It was just a really wonderful break. I've actually kind of had a hard time getting back in the swing of things since we've gotten back. I will say that I did break down and make a menu and grocery list and went shopping yesterday, so things are definitely getting better around here.
Ryan was sick for 7 days. We went to the doctor on Wednesday and he just said it was a virus that's rampant right now. He woke up basically normal Thursday and we had two puke free days and Piper starting throwing up yesterday. She has been sick all day today. I'm hoping that she will be better tomorrow. Usually my kids are sick with the pukes for 1 day NOT 7. I'm really hoping she will get over it soon. She has much more violent barfs and she also has a fever. We will see what the rest of this week brings. Wish us luck.
Here is a link to the house. It was really nice.

|Sick Buddy. He laid on me like that during the entire movie Maleficent. He normally doesn't sit still for more than about 5 seconds. Baby cuddles is one upside to having sick kids for me.|
