August 1 - 3, 2014, MN

Sunday, August 3.  Jill headed to SF on Friday evening and will be gone until next Thursday evening.  Ben and I are on our own, except that Lois and Dennis ar taking Charlotte for a sleepover on Sunday and Monday nights.  

Camille woke up sick again on Saturday morning with a fever of 102+, so Ben took her to the doctor and she must have some viral thing as the fever is too high to be related to teething.  She was real clingy all day and definitely not feeling good.  That made for a bit of a challenge, it was good that it wasn't a work day.  Charlotte was kept entertained by playing in the water for a couple of hours in the afternoon.

The twins and Ben all slept in this morning and Camille was feeling much better, waking up with a big, happy smile.  After breakfast, we headed to the Linden Hills Farmer's Market, about a 6 block walk with all 3 kids and the 2 dogs. I had a weak moment and bought a jar of veggie juice for $8.00 and although it was tasty, it wasn't worth that much money.  We picked up some veggies for tonight's dinner and some muffins and scones for a snack at the playground on our way back home.  It was a long walk but CC was a trooper, tiring only in the last block.  Naps for her seem to be a thing of the past and she has been resisting even having a quiet time in the afternoon.  I've seen a couple of good tantrums, but all is good once she gets over them.

Ben's pasta with veggie creation was yummy tonight and after the twins went to bed, we sat out on the sun porch and drank a beer - it was nice to be able to have some one on one time and some good conversation.

The patio door is a fascinating place!
