It's been a rough couple of weeks here at our house (as might be evidenced by the absence of updates on the blog...), but we are back on the upswing now. I have been down for the count with a nasty case of shingles. Fortunately the girls did not catch it (it's the same virus as chicken pox), and they got their vaccines last week, so we're really grateful that they managed to stay healthy. Kirsten is also healthy, so we got really lucky. Kirsten's parents were able to come help out with the girls last week, so that made things much easier. Anyway, I'm still recovering, but we're back to mostly normal functioning at home, so that's nice.
The girls got a huge new play structure with tents and tunnels for their birthday, and they've been really loving playing with each other and chasing each other in and around it. Here are a few shots.
