On most Sunday afternoons, the children play downstairs, or, weather permitting, outside. The weather certainly did not permit on this scorching day. Instead, Bekah hosted playtime in her upstairs bedroom this afternoon. It was a thrill for everyone to be permitted to play upstairs!
First Bekah and Maddie decided to play with their American Girl dolls and horses. Then Gavin and Owen went up to play with the big box of Legos that are under Bekah's bed. Then Ben went up to join the crowd. And Alaine, not wishing to be left out of the party, asked to go "stairs" and up she went to play with the Fisher Price doll house most of the afternoon.
I suppose everyone likes a change now and then.

Remember a few weeks back when I told you about the hip surgery video? Well, today's activities included another medical element. We got out the blood pressure monitor and measured everyone's blood pressure. Yes, we're weird that way.

(Would you think we were even more weird if I told you that we also took blood sugar readings using Ron's glucometer? Okay, I won't tell you.)
