Our 4th of July!

First I hope that everyone had a happy, safe and exciting 4th of July. I know ours was jammed packed with fun! The only down side was GG got another migraine and threw up. This is the 3rd time in 6 months and I am getting really concerned. I've already taken her to the doctor once for this and I am going to take her again, because she is too young for this. Anyone out there have kids with migraines? Back to our day...first I got everyone up and ready for the parade, the three older kids were in the parade. They rode in the cop truck with daddy and I got a couple pictures of them but I'm not posting them. But here is Peanut watching the parade :) She's sporting red, white and blue with stars.

Then we had to leave the parade early to meet my dad and step-mom for lunch. Then it was home for the two little ones to get a nap. As soon as they woke it was to the fest for some rides. The older kids each got two rides. They all went on the swings which was Red's first year going on them and he was so cute to watch. Then he went on the Dragon rollercoaster and the other two went on Tilt-a-whirl with me. I also took Peanut on the big slide, she loved it! By the time we got done with the rides J was done working. We ran home grabbed our swim suites and off to a party we all went! We ended up getting home last night at 11pm. This year has been such a blessing to have J be able to watch the fireworks with us on the 3rd and then have him home at night on the 4th :) Here is another picture of the 4 kids from the 4th.
All three of the kids had the same shirt on which is the veggie tales shirt. I wished we could of found a baby size in it too.

That header picture is ADORABLE. Love Peanut's expression!

Hope GG feels better and that you get some answers about her migraines. I used to get them occasionally, growing up. They are AWFUL. I truly feel for her...

Can't wait to see you guys on Weds!

Poor GG, I don't know any children that suffer from migraines. I wish I could offer some advice.

I'm so glad you had a wonderful 4th of July.

My kids are huge fans of Larry Boy! Grammy has just about every one, and it is a special activity to watch Larry Boy at Grammy's house.

Sounds like you had a great 4th of july.
My oldest dd Princess has migraines
Back when she was in 3rd and 4th grade she was getting them all the time.. we saw the doctor a time or two for them.. but after a year they started running test(she use to have seizures when she was in preschool not full blow but in the form of a twitch in her eye) I feared that her seizures might have been coming back and that was why she kept getting awful headaches that were making her sick and putting her in so much pain. So they ran all sort of test and ruled out the seizures and came back and told me they were migraines and they started her on a daily med for it.. she took them for about a year and didn't have one migraines at all. She is now entering into 7th grade and has gone off the meds and from time to time will get a bad headach but still hasn't had migraines that make her really sick..

I wonder if GG could be having the migraines as a reaction to a food allergy of some sort? I have a friend who gets them any time she eats dairy products. I pray you will be able to get some answers soon!
