Thank you for all of the kind thoughts and prayers for Ryan. He's feeling much better and the neurologist thinks that it was an isolated incident. Whew! He'll have a couple of more tests next week, but we're not expecting anything out of the ordinary to show up. In case you're wondering, I haven't kicked him once for snoring since it happened. And we're planning on buying a bigger bed soon (we currently sleep in a double bed) so the chances of either of us rolling off the bed will be a lot slimmer. (I thought about just putting the toddler bed rail up on his side of the bed, but we're going to need it for Evan fairly soon.)
Before the whole falling out of bed incident, we had our "Thanks a lot, BP" staycation.
Because Liam loves all thing space-related, we took a day trip to the Johnson Space Center. I hadn't been in years, which is sad considering we live less than an hour away from it. We all had a great time.
Sydney and Evan had fun trying on the astronaut's helmets:
And we really enjoyed seeing the rockets, the giant hangar where the astronauts practice their maneuvers and the old control room (think Apollo 13).
Then we decided to cash in the points Ryan has earned with all of his travels to NYC and spend a few days at Hyatt's Lost Pines resort near Austin. What's the point of saving up all those points and never using them, right?
We spent the entire time going down the slide. All three kids had a blast on it (oh, who are we kidding.....Ryan and I had fun, too):
And here's some proof that I was there, too:
We also had some fun just lounging around:
(Yep, he's yawning. We actually managed to wear that boy out!)
For a little one-on-one time, Ryan took Sydney out to dinner one evening and let her tag along to band practice with him. Another evening, she and I snuggled up and watched the first Harry Potter movie together.
It wasn't Disney World or Europe or a Caribbean cruise, but it was lots of fun and I know the kids will remember it for years to come.
