Halloween Parade

We went to a neighborhood parade in Alexandria today near Corrina's daycare. There was a lot more people than I expected there, which probably had a lot to due with the very nice weather.

This was the first year Corrina dressed up for Halloween, she was a duckling. More pics are on Flickr.

Mom's Trip to DC

My mom came to visit us in DC this weekend.. unfortunately Corrina has decided recently to be very anti-social and not let anyone touch her (besides me, and occasionally Sandra.)

We went to the National Cathedral



And Shenandoah National Park..




And finally the zoo..

National Zoo - July 2009

We went for a quick trip to the zoo today. Corrina was not super interested since she doesn't really know what's going on there, but she was pretty interested in the great apes.

Another Hospital Trip

Yesterday we made our second trip to Children's Hospital with Corrina. On Thursday night we noticed some yellow stuff in the corner of her eye, but we thought it might have just been some eye goop, but kept an eye on it. Yesterday, though, it was coming out of both eyes when we picked her up from daycare. We gave a call to her doctor, and he pretty unambiguously said "you should go to the hospital now" because she was also running a fever, which we found out was around 102 when we got there.

Now, to say Corrina doesn't like doctors is quite the understatement. She freaked out any time anyone got near her, to the point where she threw up when the doctor was actually examining her (this is not the first time this has happened, either.) However, as soon as we even got into the parking garage, she quieted down. The diagnosis was that she had some kind of viral infection, the doctor gave us some eye drops that we need to use for the next week.

Already today she seems better, though. The eye discharge hasn't reappeared and her fever is pretty much gone. So, hopefully she's on the way to recovery, but we've found that her fevers really come on quickly, so we're keeping a close eye on her.

We went over to Pat's new house in VA today for a BBQ. Corrina got to play around with his son, PJ. More photos are available on Flickr.
