This past weekend was packed with activities.  We started the weekend with Madolyn's 6th birthday party on  Friday night.  All the girls (and their moms) met at the movie theater to see High School Musical (hence the HSM music on the blog….it will be gone soon:-)).  They loved it and so did we.  We then headed back to our house for karaoke, cake, presents etc. 








Saturday was Madolyn's actual birthday.  She opened all her presents in the morning and we played with her new doll.  We then headed to a local harvest festival with friends.  I was still getting over my cold and my littlest was ready for a nap.  My husband headed to the car with the youngest and I slowly made my way to the car with the other two.  When we got there Kelly was saying how he had been calling my cell phone…..we need to go to the hospital…..Benjamin stuck a tic tac up his nose.  At this point I just looked at him asking where did our little boy get a tic tac?  Daddy was just trying to keep him from crying with tic tac BOLD.  I don't even want to eat those things let alone shove one up my nose.  Unfortunately, his eye started to turn red, red dots on forehead etc.  We decided to go to the fire station and talk to them.  They recommended going by AMBULANCE.  I said are you kidding? is a TIC TAC!  Needless to say, Benjamin and I rode in the ambulance with Kelly and the kids following.  Benjamin just turned two and his favorite things in the world revolve around fire trucks.  Lets just say that he was in heaven.  He was strapped to the bed.  He would turned to look at me.  He would laugh and say "fire truck".   He would then wave to daddy out the back window.  I told the paramedic that I would understand the ambulance ride if it had been an Altoid up his nose….those things are curiously strong! 

Everyone is now fine.  Nothing is up anyone's nose.  I am waiting for something else to be shoved up there though……the ambulance ride was WAY TOO MUCH FUN!!!!
