Wordless Wednesday

We had a super busy weekend, this last weekend. Saturday was Gideon's birthday party (post to come) and Sunday we went sledding/tubing at Snoqualmie Pass. Of course Sunday morning I wake up to Gideon crawling into bed with me and passing out. This is very unusual for him so I should have assumed something was wrong then but I was enjoying cuddling with him while he was letting me. After he rolled over a bit later I realized he had a fever... I checked and it was 100.7 :( I am a firm believer in letting a fever do it's job and fight off the sickness, and Gideon still really wanted to go sledding, so we decided we'd still go. He ate breakfast, not a lot, but he did eat, and there was no vomiting so I thought we'd be ok. As we were walking out the door, I checked his temp again and it had gone up to 101.7... I was a little more hesitant to bring him now but decided we already had tickets, might as well go. We'll be out in the cold so maybe that'll help to lower it.

When we first got there, Gideon was doing ok. You could tell he didn't feel well but he was wanting to participate. By the end of our 2 hours though he just sat inside his tube and was "ducking down" as he said. When we left, his fever had gone back down below 101 and he perked back up some when he ate a sandwich. Overall, it was fun, but I wish Gideon hadn't been sick. On the bright side, at least he didn't wake up sick on Saturday because we would have had to cancel his party :/
