I am not sure if we are going to Riverfest this year.  The kids are visiting one of their grandmas and we are running a little low on the funds this weekend (yay house and car payments). Have some alligator on a stick for me!

May 28 (TODAY!) 6-11pm
May 29 10am-11pm

I've been making myself a bit scarce this month. We have been having a little trouble with my oldest and had to stay overnight at the local children's hospital for an EEG. She has been having a lot of headaches,slurring,dizziness,weakness while walking, etc. We were a little afraid that the seizures she had when she was little were back. The initial results look ok. She may have to do some blood tests later and follow up on a circulation issue. One of her arms turns purple and white spotted pretty often. Only one.
Weird huh?
