Last day at the fair. On the last day we always do 2 things together. One thing is thatJay and the kids ride the sky glider (aka: ski lift) from one end of the fairgrounds and back (I sit and watch because the last time I tried to ride it...with my fear of heights...let's just say it wasn't pretty). The other thing we do is ride "Ye Old Mill" together. It's a little ride that's a boat and leads you through dark tunnels. I think when first built it was sort of like a tunnel of love kind of ride, and who knows, maybe it still is today. For us, my kids just love seeing how much they can get the little boat to rock back and forth and freak mom out. It's also a "tradition" for them to stand and touch each poster along the route. Does anyone really understand teenagers? LOL
Today we took Curi to Chelsea's apartment where she will live now. She wasn't too sure about everything at first and was pretty scared, but after the first couple of days, Chelsea says she acts as if she's lived there forever, and loves all the attention she gets when friends come over.

Austin got his braces off today. He was so excited and I can't get over how grown-up he looks now.

We drove 7 long hours to St. Louis, MO. My feet and toes get very sore when on a hard surface for long periods, so a super soft, super cushiony pillow helps so much!

We're in St. Louis for my appointment with the specialist.

This past Tuesday, Molly had surgery to remove a cancerous tumor. Since we were going to be gone, we had her boarded at the Vet clinic until we got back, and I picked her up this morning. The poor thing nearly choked herself trying to get to me when they brought her out of the boarding area. She was so happy to be home, and we're happy she's going to be ok.

Tucker has some wierd skin "thing" going on right now. His skin on his legs, base of the tail, an in his ears are all bright red and he chews on them constantly. The vet said it could be allergy related, and that with our crazy weather, they are seeing more skin related problems with animals. So, for 2 weeks I have an allergy pill to give him every day and a topical ointment to help ease redness and soreness on those affected areas. To keep him from licking the ointment while it absorbs in, I have to wrap him in the tape that adheres to itself. This picture shows his tail wrapped up. You can imagine how goofy he looks with all 4 legs wrapped up too. LOL
That's our week. Be sure to head on over to Sara's through the link in the sidebar to check out all the other great Project 365 photos!!
