To back up a little bit, if you read my last post you know my grandmother unexpectedly passed away on June 22nd. That was really hard on our family because we were all very close to her. It was so hard going to her apartment and moving out everything, smelling her, and just wondering why she passed away. About a week and a half after she passed away, Kaylor came down with a HIGH fever. I just thought it was one of those 24 hour fevers and that she would be fine. Well her fever would not go down! The next morning it was around 103.5 and not coming down on medicine. She was lifeless on the couch (and we all know a 2 year old acting lifeless on the couch shows that they are really sick.) Then that night it was around 104 and still not coming down with the medicine. The next morning Kaylor was up to around 104.7 so we decided to take her to Vanderbilt ER (the nurse told us to do this because it was a holiday and she was not responding to medicine). As we walked through the front door of the ER Kaylor threw up all over Kerry and all over the lobby. Kerry did not bring another shirt so he had to wear scrubs all morning. The ER experience was awful! They wanted an x-ray, which we all had to hold her down to get and they had to put a catheter in her, which we all had to hold her down again. AWFUL! They couldn't really tell us what it was, so basically we did all of that to not get an answer. She kept a fever of around 104-104.5 for the next 4 days! We took her to the doctor three different times and they finally thought she might have pneumonia without showing in x-rays or hearing it in her lungs (because that can happen apparently). So my child went 4 days with a high fever and no anti-biotics for pneumonia. She finally started feeling better in time to leave for our trip to the beach.
Building sand castles.

Kaylor wanted to ride all of them. So we did the carousel and this ride below that was a balloon ride. Kerry said they actually went really high and fast and couldn't believe she didn't get scared. Kaylor loved it and even raised her hands while they were riding:This was the entire family at The Shrimp Boat:
We had a great time!!
