Sick Day

You all left me the sweetest comments on my last post.  Thank you!  Although I truly love my simple life, I also love life's little surprises, even if it is a sick day.

Nope, I'm not sick, but my poor sister and brother-in-law are REALLY sick. :( Riley had the stomach bug that is going around earlier this week, and my brother-in-law (Adam) barely made it home last night before getting sick himself. Two hours later, my sister starts vomiting too. I'll spare you the details, but it has not been pretty. We actually thing my sister's "bug" is the flu since her temperature is so much higher and she has more symptoms than just a bug.

This morning, after much debate, we decided to send my sweet Riley over to my house to allow Ashley and Adam to go to the doctor, rest and recover. Although I feel awful for my sister and her husband, I'm thrilled that I "had" to stay home from work to spend the day with my gorgeous niece. Of course I took pictures for you all throughout the day!

We started off the morning in our pj's.  Someone still isn't back to 100% after her days of the stomach bug, so she was a bit sleepy/cranky for a few hours.  PJ's make everything better.
After watching some Curious George on TV, Riley was ready to play "peoples."  (Remember the Little People? Riley LOVES them!)
After getting dressed, and ready to head out and play, someone was STILL in a trace over "George."  
I attempted to take a few pictures of the two of us, but I should have probably turned George off first.
"Oh Uncle Paige! What kind of face is that?!" (Yes, she calls me Uncle Paige sometimes.)
After "rest time" (aka, watching Cars in the "big bed" and doze off every few minutes) we played outside, looking for 4 leaf clovers...
She handed me one and called it "a flower."
Sigh.  The ballerina in me wanted to shout: "Riley! Don't you know that sitting position is terrible for your turnout?!"  The aunt in me snapped a picture at how adorable that face is.

We had lots of fun throwing the ball.
It was fun to kick the ball too! Even when we missed:
After lots of time outside, we went inside to color a picture for Mommy and Daddy that said "Get Well Soon!"

She worked very hard on it, and put lots of stickers on it just for Mommy and Daddy.
After Riley finished coloring, we took a trip to Granny and Pappy's (my parents) and spent a few hours over there.  Riley LOVES her Granny and Pappy, and loved snuggling up to them.  After she "taked a bath" and ate her "mac and cheese" it was time for Riley to go home.  Adam was feeling much better, but Ashley is still feeling pretty rough.  Hopefully another great night's sleep Ashley will be feeling much better too.  

I love my time with sweet Riley, and although I'm sad Ashley and Adam felt so awful today, I'm thrilled that I got to spend an entire day with the most beautiful 2 year old I've ever seen. :)
