Never a dull moment....

Last night Patrick fell in the bathroom and hit his head on the bathtub. He cried for a second but was fine. We didn't think anything of it after that.
This morning I got a call from daycare that he had been crying that his head hurt. Then he would start doing something and just stop and grab his head (the side he hit) and cry that it hurt. So I left work and called the pediatrician. They told me to get him to the ER for a cat scan right away.
He was sooo good. I mean if we didn't already have a dog, he was "you deserve a puppy" good.
He didnt cry once. Didn't whine. Nothing. Just hung out until they took us in for the scan. He thought he was so cool on the wheelchair...waving to everyone like a celebrity. They were going to sedate him but decided to give him a chance to try it without. He was great. He didn't even move an inch. He thought it was the coolest thing. He said it was like a spaceship.
Cat scan was clear. The doctor said no concussion. It could have been a headache from the hit, but his ear was looking a little red as well, so she gave him some medication and off we went. Here's some camera phone shots from our day.

Fall Fun!

Today we headed to Snipes Farm for our annual pumpkin and apple picking. We usually go to Shady Brook Farms, but we decided to spice it up and try Snipes. It wasn't the real pumpkin patch like they have at Shady Brook, but they had a ton of stuff for the kids to do...and the apple picking was right next to the "pumpkin patch" so it was very convenient. The kids had a great day. Ally had her first taste of real apple cider, we all enjoyed some freshly made pumpkin doughnuts (YUM), and did well with our pumpkin purchase.

It's Daddy's Birthday!!!!

We had a lot of fun celebrating Ron's birthday today.
We surprised him with dinner at Arirang. (More so b/c it's one of the only places we can go that Patrick doesn't throw a fit. He LOVES Hibatchi) But also because Allyson and I wanted to make sure he was thoroughly embarrassed by the singing waiters and light show.
We love you! Hope you had a great birthday!

Stop...Drop...and Roll!

Today was Fire Prevention Day at the Old Bridge Firehouse. Yes, the firehouse in our town has Open House for Fire Prevention Week, but I have been going to Open House at this firehouse since I was little. Allyson went when she was little. So it was only fitting that Patrick have his first experience there as well. It was worth the drive.
As expected, Patrick had a great time! Now he's all ready for his Fireman birthday party.
