I Survived Easter Weekend!

Our Easter weekend started with being off for Good Friday. I was hurting pretty badly in my neck and so my Mom offered to rub this stuff called Biofreeze on my neck. She said it does wonders for her knee. Well within two minutes of it being on my neck, my neck was burning so badly. I did all I could to clean it off but the damage was done. I had a chemical burn! Four hours later I was home from the ER and was much better. 

Saturday was a much better day. I would even go as far as calling it perfect. We spent the whole day outside playing, coloring our eggs, riding gators, and taking some super cute pictures. We ended the night with a small rain shower where we all played in the rain. Then we got to see a double rainbow. It was almost dark and we decided to have a hamburger cookout. We ate hamburgers and hotdogs. Everyone was ready for some serious rest.

Then all hell broke loose.

First, Jack vomited a few times. It was all.over.the.place. The mattress was soaked. We moved to the couch to sleep. Then it hit me. I was sick all night long. My sister texted me at 10:15 that night saying her little boy was vomiting. The stomach virus had hit.

Easter day Jack and my nephew were feeling better but I was not. My family had a cookout with 20 members of our family. I came out periodically to say hi but I kept my distance. 

I feel a little better today. I'm just not eating anything and I'm chewing ice. 

Here are a few pictures of the happy times!


  1. I'm so sorry y'all were so sick!! Hope you're back to normal now and can have a happy, healthy weekend this time. Those are some really sweet pictures of the kids :)

  2. A hurting neck and a chemical burn? I am so sorry friend. That doesn’t sound pleasant at all. Neither does a stomach bug! I hope you are all on the mend. You got some great pictures despite being ill.
