Pumpkin Carnving, Martha's Vineyard and Hospital Stay

I am WAY behind on blogging so.......this post will have lots of pictures!!! Since the weather has been so nice lately we have taken advantage of it! Hudson finally figured out how to ride his 4 wheeler around. He is so proud of himself too!!Chris and I took the boys down to the Creative Discovery Museum a few weekends ago and here are some pictures of them playing.
Hudson LOVED playing all of the musical instruments! Cooper playing the harp.

We got a couple of pumpkins a few weeks ago so Cooper decided it was time to carve them. I tried to convince him that it was too early, but he insisted that it was not (by the way our carved pumpkins are know rotten!)
Anyways here are a few of the pumpkins that we carved!

Cooper scooping the "icky stuff" out of his pumpkin.The finished products!
Last weekend my mom, sister and I took a long weekend trip to Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket and Cape Cod. We had a really great time and the weather was perfect!!! Here are some of the pictures from our nice getaway!

We stayed at a really cute Bed and breakfast. It was so nice and homey!!! Here we are outside before we left to head back to Boston.
Well, while I was gone on my trip I got a call from Hudson's GI doctor. He had a couple of stomach several weeks ago , but apparently the side effects were still lingering. He was losing blood internally and we needed to schedule a colonoscopy to find out where he was bleeding and why??? Obviously I was a basket case, but we set the procedure for Tuesday morning. We had to "clean him out" Sunday night and ALL day on Monday. Well this is NOT FUN for a 14 month old who does not understand. We ended up having to check in the hospital on Monday morning and stay there while he was being cleaned out. He had to have a feeding tube that was hooked up to a laxative. He was being pumped full of laxative and saline all day and night on Monday. Anyways he did great in with procedure and we were discharged from the hospital. Well, the story does not end here..... apparently when they were removing the feeding tube through his nose, some form of liquid aspirated into his right lung. We came home and took a little nap but when he woke up he had a 104 fever. We headed back down to the ER and we find out that he now has pneumonia :( Poor baby had more blood drawn as well as 2 shots of antibiotics. So after 2 LONG days at the hospital we are home and doing MUCH BETTER!!!!! YEAH!!!! So here are some pictures of my sweet baby in the hospital!

Right before his colonoscopy.

Seriously, I thought I traveled a lot. You have seen the the world these past few months!! So jealous, that is on my list of places to go! Glad you and your family are doing better. Poor Hudson, he has a had a rough time lately! Definitely in my thoughts and prayers! Oh, what size is he now? Any chance he can wear 18 mos? I have some of last years stuff that may fit him.

I am so jealous. We went to Cape Cod/Martha's Vineyard a few summer ago and I am dying to go back. Glad y'all had a good trip. Poor Hudson, hope he is all better.
