Trip From Hell

A few weeks ago we decided to take a trip down to Southern California.  Curtis had to work down there for a day so we decided to join him.  Worst. Idea. Ever.  The babies were just starting to get sick.  They were a lot more fussy than normal and didn't sleep that great.  Ugh.  Just start to finish was terrible.  
On the way down we stopped in Visalia at Hobby Lobby.  I had to get a few things.  We fed the babies  in the parking lot, then drove the rest of the way down.  Usually they sleep in the car at night, but not this time.  They would sleep off and on, then fuss, then sleep a little.  When we got to the hotel we had to park the car, unload everything, set up their pack-n-plays, and get ready for bed, which totally woke them up again.  They slept terrible that night!
The next morning we met my cousin Lieren and her husband Chandler at Ihop.  They flew into LA from Hawaii that morning to surprise his dad for his 60th birthday.  Hanging out with them made our trip 10 times better.  I'm so glad we got to see them, even if it was just for an hour.  We miss them so much! 

Our Ihop server couldn't get enough of the babies.  
I kind of forgot that our babies nap twice a day. Their second nap went long since they didn't sleep well the night before.  Curtis got back from work and they were still sleeping.  By the time they woke up and we fed them, the day was pretty much over.  Totally lame.  We had planned to go to the beach or something, but it was cold and almost dark.  We had planned to stay another night, but the babies were coughing, fussing, and just plain tired.  We got them ready for the pool and didn't even go.  Haha.  I was so over it.  We packed up everything and headed home.  Super fun right? 

The next day I took Kash to the Dr.  I could hear him wheezing and struggling to breath a bit, especially at night.  I knew that wasn't normal, so I took him in.  The Dr. said he was breathing fast and sounded really tight.  They gave him two breathing treatments - then sent us home on antibiotics, a steroid, and an inhaler.  Poor guy.  He handled it like a champ though.  I finally feel like they are all getting over the hump.  FINALLY!!
