A Visit from Bebe and PawPaw!

I ma so behind with my blogging!  I hope that I can catch back up and get back into the swing of regular updates.  I think my biggest issue right now is that I am SO far behind with editing pictures.  And I hate to recap something and not include pictures!  This blog is Kate's baby book so I want complete recaps (which means words and pretty pictures) for our memories!

Before I move on to our weekend with Alex's parents (which was last weekend), I wanted to ask for prayers for Kate tomorrow.  She has her second bone marrow biopsy around 10:30 or 11 tomorrow morning (I will probably tweet a few updates).  She will be completely sedated for the procedure so I am obviously a nervous wreck. 

Kate had a biopsy done in January and had a really hard time waking up.  I wrote a post but didn't publish until a few weeks ago it as we weren't really open about all of Kate's health issues at that time.  But, here is a link if you want to read about it.  And look how tiny she is!  My goodness she has changed so much in the past 7.5 months!

Ok, so on to our visit.  We had a great time with Alex's parents and kept ourselves busy! 

Friday, we went to the beach and it was an absolutely beautiful day!  We had so much fun and as always, my little fish baby did so well!

Kate and Bebe!
Tired after a long day on the beach!

Saturday we spend a little bit of time at the Museum of Natural Sciences and visited the Butterfly Garden! 

Can I please touch this flower?

Sunday we headed to the Aquarium.  We got there right when it opened in hopes of beating the crowds.  Well, our planned worked for about 10 minutes.  After 10 minutes, the place filled up and I turned into a crazy lady that could only see germs.  We didn't last much longer.

We are trying to balance keeping Kate away form people with enjoying our last few weeks/ months before her transplant.  I want to take her to do things, I really do.  But, I just can't help myself from freaking out when we end up around a group of people.  I start getting hot, get short with everyone close by, and want nothing more than to leave the situation and get Kate away.

We had a great time pre-freak out though!

Apparently practicing her toe touch was more fun than the fish?

Our visit was wonderful but I think I gained 10 pound while they were here!  Kate had so much fun with her grandparents and I enjoyed drinking my coffee in peace and some down time!  We can't wait for our next visit!
