What a night!!

We had quite the interesting night last night. Landon has been really sick the last couple of days with a horrible cough and an on and off fever. I called the nurse and they didn't have any more appointments available yesterday, but said we should get a call on Sunday morning for a possible appointment. Presley has been sick, but as of yesterday morning had no fever. Within about a 10 minute time period she went downhill developing a fever and an obvious ear infection. So we had both babies crying because they were so sick and we decided to take them to the Emergency Room. We have Kaiser and the closest hospital is not in a great part of Sacramento. So we loaded up all the kids and drove over there. By the time we got there, they were feeling better and just enjoying being out. So we decided not to take them to the icky ER and spend $150 and to just wait until tomorrow. So we went out to eat at a yummy Hawaiian BBQ place close to the hospital. The babies actually did pretty good considering how sick they were.

We got back in the car and went to a light to turn left. On the other side of the road there was a car pulled over by two police cars. As we pulled to a stop in the left hand turn lane, they were right there only about 5 feet from us. They had a guy out of the car and were backing him up. Two police had their guns drawn about 6 inches from the guy's head!! There was a policewoman there with the dog that was barking like crazy and she was ready to let the dog go if she had to. It was crazy and we were so close!! Carson even asked "Why did that guy go like this (putting his hands behind his head)?" We were happy to get back to Elk Grove and back home!!

The babies actually slept pretty good last night. Presley crawled into bed with us at about 2, but slept the rest of the night. It is 5:30 now and Landon has been coughing for about 30 minutes, but is still asleep. Hopefully we can get them in today and make sure they don't have anything more serious!!

WOW, what a scary experience - I bet the kids will always remember that!

I hope they are better soon - Happy Valentines Day!
