8/15/09 - MORNING - We goofed off at my dad's house all day, playing in the pool and just enjoying some vacation time.
8/15/09 - MORNING - We picked up a cultural pass at the library to help pay for our family to spend some time at the Children's Museum. All three kids had a blast! They'd been begging to go for a long time and I'm glad it finally worked out to take them.

Devon, with his face painted, in the water room.
Silas said his face was painted like a viper.
8/15/08 - EVENING - At 5:30 Silas was found at the bottom of a pool without a heartbeat. He miraculously came back to life, then Tim and I were chauffeured with him to the hospital in an ambulance. Tim spent the night on Silas' bed (that was Silas' request) and I slept (and I use that term lightly) in a roll-away bed that was shaped more like a bowl. Our other kids stayed at my dad's house.
8/15/09 - EVENING - After the museum we came home to relax, then walked a few blocks to spend the evening with Brian, Anna, and their kiddos. The kids all played hard, we ate a bunch of excellent food, had fun chatting, then headed home to tuck all the offspring into their beds. We slept in our own comfy bed.
8/16/08 - MORNING - We woke up in the hospital, fed fish some crackers the nurses gave us, and waited for the doctor to make rounds in the hopes Silas would be discharged. We were back at my dad's by mid-morning.
8/17/09 - MORNING - We woke up in our home and went to church as a family.
I definitely prefer the 2009 version of 5:30 on 8/15 through 10:30 on 8/16 over the 2008 version!! Yesterday was a really fun day spent as a family!!
