Fish Hook in the Head and Big Birthday Bash

My low this week was definitely the fish hook that ended up in my 8-year-old son’s head. My hubby had excitedly arranged a fishing trip, packed the car, gathered the supplies, purchased the fishing licenses etc. As soon as we arrived, the kids were anxious to get their poles out and into the water. And unfortunately, my 6 year old daughter was determined to be the very first one to get her pole into the lake. And so she quickly grabbed her pole, whipped it back to cast and yep, you guessed it – she hooked her brother! Ouch!
Luckily, Ayden (aka the fish) was a trooper. Although the hubby and I had a slight panic attack, we got ourselves together and calmly tried to remove the hook; however, we quickly realized that the hook was not going to come out easily and was going to require professional intervention. So we all headed back to the truck, loaded all of our gear, and spent the next hour at the doctor’s office awaiting hook removal. Gratefully, the doctor was awesome and the hook was quickly removed after Ayden’s head had been numbed. Phew!
My high took place this past weekend when we celebrated my oldest son, Nicholas, turning 12. Although his actual birthday is not until July, we decided to have any early birthday party/sleepover this month as more of his friends were actually available to come. The boys had a great time shooting water guns, throwing water balloons, playing football, and just running around outside.
One of the highlights of the big birthday party was a Photo Scavenger Hunt that my mom created (as pictured above). The boys were split up in to several teams and were given a camera and the list above. They then had one hour to navigate our neighborhood (monitored by adults of course!) and take photos of the different items above. They had an absolute blast and it was really fun to look at all the pictures at the end – thanks, mom! 🙂
