Yesterday we spent the day at Hershey Park with Rivendell and a few other friends. It was such a great day! To start off, we left our house at 7:30 AM, a feat never to be repeated I am sure. We got to the park right around 10:00, when it opened, and we got good parking spaces. I was a bit worried about going through the gate to get in. The website says "No outside food" several times, but hey--I'm pregnant, Micah's 1--we need our snacks, LOL. We had all eaten some jerky and cheese sticks on our way in from the parking lot, but I had some more jerky plus some graham crackers and fruity snacks for Micah in the diaper bag. Well, I shouldn't have worried. The guards just gave the opened diaper bag a perfunctory glance and didn't even root around in it at all. So I guess they weren't really all that concerned about graham crackers.
Once inside, we split into groups, although we hadn't met up with everyone yet. But eventually we all met up (there were 32 of us plus Micah), and we split into 3 groups.
So all the groups had a wonderful time, and we didn't end up actually leaving until around 7:30, meaning we got home after 10:00. Everyone was exhausted, and it's taken most of today to recover, LOL. This was the last official thing of the school year that I was in charge of, so I am now feeling a great sense of relief! No more responsibilities! Well . . . not entirely, LOL.
The only fly in the ointment was Jonathan, who was sporting an angry poison ivy rash on the right side of his face.
He apparently got it on Sunday. He was picking up sticks in the backyard after dinner, while everyone else were all preparing for a campfire. I didn't notice any sort of rash until Monday morning though, when he came down to breakfast. By Wednesday it had spread and looked like this picture. I've been giving him Benedryl and putting hydrocortizone cream on it, but it's still itchy and red. He was worried his face would scare the ride attendants, but that didn't seem to be the case, LOL. Hopefully it will go away soon!
