Hayward 4th of July Trip 2010

Every year my immediate family gets together for a week up at the lake house in Hayward. My parents are always so happy to have us there, and we always have a great time.

I have a gazillion pics that I uploaded to a link, you can check them out here.

Check out that ROCK!! Yep-Mike proposed to Casey while we were all out one night. We are sooooo happy for the two of them-

Here's a group shot of us big kids. Thanks to Grammy for watching all 3 girls so we could 'live it up' for a night :)-

Here's Emme trying on Auntie CeCe's ring - I think she likes it!!!! -

A family picture!!!!! We haven't had a new one of these in ages. I love it!!!

Grammy made the girls matching dresses. Aren't they so cute?
We had a great time up north. We did get to visit the ER unfortunately. Emily got bit by a bug on Tuesday and by the middle of the night her arm was incredibly swollen. So we took her to the ER at 1am, and they said she had cellulitis which is basically a bacterial infection. They put her on antibiotics and benadryl, but wanted us to go to the clinic in the morning. So the next day we woke up and her hand/arm were worse!!!! So we took her to the clinic and it was quite the adventurous day - poor little girl! She had to have her blood drawn, which didn't work - so then they got blood via finger pricks. Then she had to have one of her bug bites lanced so they could get some of the ickies out of it and grow it in a culture. Then the worst part was they had to hold her down and give her an antibiotic injection in each thigh. That was awful. Em did soooo good! Thankfully the injections helped and by Thurs morning she was finally doing better. She went back to the clinic 1 more time and they did a finger prick again and the blood draw showed the infection was going down. Ends up she got a staph infection from the bug bite. Very scary!!!
Other than that, the trip was fantastic. I got to waterski - which I hadn't done since before I was pregnant. Got up my first try! Yay me! Got to spend some time with our friends Bruce & Kate and their 2 kiddos. Got to see my little sissy get engaged...how special for all of us!
Can't wait for next year :)
