Getting ready for the IV. They put warm packs on her to get the veins to vasodilate (are you so impressed with my mad physiology skillz??).
So, on a happier note. We had a long, fabulous Memorial Day weekend at the cabin in Tahuya with my family (minus the pneumonia)! Maizey and I went to my parents house on Wednesday night, helped my mom buy the entire bath/bedding section of Macy's and ate at the Rainforest Cafe (thank you dad). Maizey loved the cafe, especially the gorillas, which seem like they would frighten most kiddos--I guess she takes after her mama with her love of apes! Then, Thursday morning we headed up to the Cabin with my mom. Ryan stayed home for the weekend to get some stuff done around the house. We had a great time playing with cousin Harper, Maizey went for her first kayak ride, and played on the air mattress in Erika's tent (I called it baby catnip because Maizey got really lovey dovey and silly in there--probably lack of oxygen)! It was in that tent that Maizey started giving kisses for the first time, and it hasn't stopped. She will just go from person to person giving kisses, it's adorable, and a really effective way to spread rotavirus (luckily none of us have come down with it so far)!! Anyway, here are some photos from our cabin adventure (mostly courtesy of auntie).

Maizey's first time in the canal. All she wanted to do was eat rocks...
Such a little thing in such a big place.
This is in the tent. Notice my mom in a wool sweater with a wool blanket? It must have been 80degrees in that tent and she was still freezing (because she had a fever). We found out that night that she had pneumonia!
My dad is rad.
She LOVES this little slide in the pool!
Maizey and auntie. Everyone thinks Maize looks just like auntie.
Upside down kisses from mama.
Playing in Dry Creek. Actually, I don't think she was playing so much as protesting. It was REALLY cold!
Hanging out in my trunk.
I came home early from the cabin so that we could spend a day doing something fun with daddy. We decided to go to the zoo. We had a really great time, I even ran into a friend from high school (Marcy Chartier) and her daughter! Maizey liked the petting zoo best!
She really wanted to break these locks open and free the bunnies. My little future Greenpeace activist.
Petting the Kinder goats.
I'm sure I was saying "baaaaaahhhh" in this photo, you just can't see. We spent a lot of time discussing animal noises that day.
I LOVE these panda cows, so did Maizey and Ryan. I want one.
Okay, this is probably the least exciting video ever, but the only other one Ryan took was like 2.5mins long and I've been trying to upload it since Monday and I can't, I think it's way too long. It was really cute of Maizey running from goat to goat. You'll just have to watch this and imagine how much better the other video was.
