Jenny Visit

The first weekend of October, my good friend Jenny McC came to visit us in San Antonio again. We had a wonderful weekend together. And it was especially great to have her help over a few days that Jason was out of town. On one of those days Isla had her worst teething day ever.

She was a mess, banging her head on the ground, crankyness like
I've never seen before. And this was with alternating Tylenol and Advil every 2 hours. I think I would have lost it if I had been on my own. When we got back from trying to eat out (taking turns eating while the other watched Isla and distracted her with wind chimesoutside the restaurant), I gave Isla a bowl of ice cream.

After she threw the bowl at me and tried to fling ice cream at me like a rabid monkey, I left the room. Jenny helped Isla with the ice cream which gradually numbed her mouth. 10 minutes later they are down there giggling and playing!

Highlights of the were spending a girls day shopping at the Shops at La Cantera, a day at the zoo and Brackenridge Park with Isla, and time loungin' by the pool.
